US passes 5m Covid-19 cases as Joe Biden says pandemic 'breaks heart'
US has highest number of cases and highest deaths in world, as Democratic nominee attacks Trump over coronavirus ‘failures'The US on Sunday passed 5m coronavirus cases, as Donald Trump's executive orders seeking to break a political impasse over further economic relief were denounced by a Republican as "unconstitutional slop" and Joe Biden accused the president of issuing little more than "excuses and lies".Recriminations have been flying in Washington since talks on further aid for the unemployed and for states struggling with a public health crisis collapsed on Friday.Trump intervened on Friday and Saturday, holding press conferences at his luxury golf club in New Jersey, cheered on by well-heeled members crowding close together - a jarring setting amid a pandemic and recession. On Sunday, there was loud criticism of the president's unilateral proposals on reduced federal enhanced unemployment benefits, payroll tax cuts and protection against evictions.New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo, dismissed Trump's executive orders as "laughable" and another chapter in the federal government's botched response to the pandemic. Cuomo said Trump's plan would likely cost New York state $4bn: "The concept of saying to states, you pay 25% of the insurance, is just laughable. It's just an impossibility. So none of this is real on the federal side. This is going to have to be resolved."Cuomo said he did not know if Trump was "genuine in thinking the executive order is a resolution or if this is just a tactic in the negoti

Senate cafeteria workers reportedly face layoffs if Congressional stalemate continues
Up to 80 people who are part of the Senate cafeteria staff in the capitol could face layoffs by October if Congress can't emerge from its coronavirus relief deadlock, CNN reports.The company that employs the workers, Restaurant Associates, did not confirm the number, but did not deny issuing warnings of potential layoffs, which are the result of having to close some of its restaurants because of the pandemic.Senators told CNN they believe they will pass a bill that will fund the Architect of the Capitol — the federal agency that oversees the day-to-day function of the Capitol and has a private contract with Restaurant Associates — in time, allowing employees to continue to receive their paychecks, like the CARES Act did.Lawmakers said they were committed to protecting the workers' jobs, although Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) blamed Restaurant Associates, which he said "has been a problem to deal with," rather than his colleagues for the layoffs threat. As Murphy sees it, the company is simply trying "get more money out of the Architect of the Capitol," which he said could mean it's "time to find a vendor that's not going to use the threats of layoffs as a cajole to try to get more money."
