President Joe Biden addresses the nation and says he’ll sign an Executive Order on abortion. When he wasn’t mischaracterizing the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Dobbs case, he was acknowledging that the issue needs to be resolved in the legislative branch. (Which is what the Supreme Court said.)


“On Inauguration Day, President-elect Biden will sign roughly a dozen actions,” White House chief of staff Ron Klain wrote in a memo last week. “While the policy objectives in these executive actions are bold, I want to be clear: the legal theory behind them is well-founded and represents a restoration of an appropriate, constitutional role for the President.”


President-elect Joe Biden steps into the Oval Office with the country deeply divided worse than it was four years ago. From the COVID-19 crisis to the economy and racial inequality, the former vice president is preparing to enact a sweeping set of executive orders within the first days of his presidency. 


The order comes with some limitations, but gives businesses who hold ABC liquor licenses the ability to sell cocktails to customers to-go. The list of those establishments includes bars, restaurants, clubs, private bars, breweries and distilleries.
