Under obama /biden 494,000 jobs were lost in 8 years . under trump 496,000 jobs were gained in three years
one figure that stands out on Joe and Jill Biden's Form 1040 is line 5a, where Social Security benefits received is reported. In 2018 -- the most recent tax filing that Biden made available as part of his presidential campaign -- the couple received $49,545 from Social Security. |
This was a drop in the bucket next to the $4.58 million the couple reported in adjusted gross income for 2018. However, the amount the Bidens received in aggregate Social Security benefits is certainly on the upper end of the spectrum. Back in October 2018, the average retired worker was bringing home $1,419.34 a month, which equates to a bit over $17,000 a year in income. Joe and Jill combined were netting well over this average in 2018.
In 1864, an amendment abolishing slavery passed the U.S. Senate but died in the House as Democrats rallied in the name of states’ rights. The election of 1864 brought Lincoln back to the White House along with significant Republican majorities in both houses, so it appeared the amendment was headed for passage when the new Congress convened in March 1865. Lincoln preferred that the amendment receive bipartisan support–some Democrats indicated support for the measure, but many still resisted. The amendment passed 119 to 56, just barely above the necessary two-thirds majority. Several Democrats abstained, but the 13th Amendment was sent to the states for ratification, which came in December 1865. With the passage of the amendment, the institution that had indelibly shaped American history was eradicated.
Thanks this is great!

Fabulous collection of airchecks! Every region should have something this detailed and well put-together. I especially enjoyed the BNR-SPK jingle packages. Brings back 40-year old memories. (I contributed the October '76 WPDH aircheck)
Braddock Heights MD,
Great to hear these vintage airchecks by some of my co-workers again! Too bad there doesn't seem to be any of me - I was "Dick Fisher" on WALL from 1976-78, and did the Sunday night "Time Machine" oldies show!

A nice collection of 70s hometown radio station airchecks with lots of music bites for those in search of the elusive 70s tracks!!!
