Rudy Giuliani’s literal meltdown is the gift that keeps on giving.In an Instagram announcement that very well may have been inspired by a recent Daily Beast article, Julia Louis-Dreyfus appeared with black paint dripping down her face to share the news that Veep’s cast will be reuniting online for a live table read of the unusually prescient 2016 episode “Mother.”> View this post on Instagram> > A post shared by Julia Louis-Dreyfus (@officialjld)“Over the last few weeks, many brave and patriotic Americans have come forward having witnessed similarities between our ongoing election and the TV show Veep,” Louis-Dreyfus says in the video as footage plays of dueling “Stop the Count” and “Count the Votes” rallies from the show’s fifth season play on screen.“And not just a singular example, but a pattern that repeats itself over and over,” she continues. “Literally thousands or hundreds of thousands of cases. To any experienced investigator or prosecutor this would suggest there was a plan from a centralized place, specifically focused on Veep.”From there, Louis-Dreyfus mocks Giuliani’s My Cousin Vinny riff by asking off-screen to no one, “Have you watched Veep? It’s one of my favorites. With the nice lady?”As she proceeds to wipe her face with a handkerchief, the Emmy-winning actress reveals the point of all this. On Sunday, December 6th at 8 p.m. ET, the entire Veep cast plus some special guests will reunite in the event to benefit America Votes. A donation of any amount to help turn out voters for the two Georgia Senate runoffs at ShowUpforGeorgia.com gets you access to the show.“Be forewarned, we shall release the Kraken,” Louis-Dreyfus concludes with a smile.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

(Bloomberg) -- The Chicago City Council on Tuesday approved a $12.8 billion budget for 2021 that relies on higher property and fuel taxes as well as a half billion dollars in savings from a large debt refinancing.The spending plan relies on almost $94 million from higher property taxes and $501 million in debt costs savings, according to budget documents. With help from cuts and increases to revenue, Mayor Lori Lightfoot closed a $1.2 billion deficit in the city’s $4 billion corporate fund, which pays for basic operations and services.“This was a very difficult budget, probably the most challenging in the history of our city,” Lightfoot said after the vote. “We’ve got many challenges and many roads ahead that we need to walk down the path together.”Lightfoot took on what she had called “painful” choices to fill the record budget shortfall as the Covid-19 virus and business shutdowns to slow its spread hit tax collections. Revenue fell while the need for city services like housing assistance, health care and small business aid climbed. Chicago is facing $30 billion of unfunded pension liabilities after decades of inadequate contributions. The city’s total retirement obligations for fiscal 2021 are projected to rise to $1.82 billion from $1.68 billion this year.The 2021 budget includes staff position reductions and furloughs of non-union staff with higher incomes. Lightfoot backed off from planned layoffs after negotiations with labor groups. The spending plan also institutes a 3-cent-per-gallon increase in the city’s vehicle fuel tax. The city also approved an ordinance to issue a total of $3.9 billion in general obligation bonds and additional sales tax bonds.“The gas tax is a painfully regressive tax, as it hits those hardest who can least afford it,” the Illinois Fuel and Retail Association, which represents gas stations and convenience stores, said in a statement.Next year’s spending plan includes $65 million for affordable housing and homeless prevention, $36 million for community-based violence prevention and $20 million for mental health, which puts $1 million toward a pilot program that pairs police officers with mental health workers to respond to relevant 911 calls and a model for a responder system that doesn’t involve law enforcement.The budget and related ordinances did not pass unanimously and had several aldermen criticizing the tax hikes and calling for more funding for communities in need.“Rather than taxing the rich, this budget asks already struggling Chicagoans to pay even more in regressive taxes and fines,” according to a emailed statement on behalf of the Democratic Socialists in the city council who voted against the budget. “While we voted no today, we commit to continue working with grassroots organizations over the next twelve months to win a 2022 budget that advances economic and racial justice - a budget that our communities and ourselves can wholeheartedly support.”Several aldermen who supported Lightfoot’s spending proposal said the plan wasn’t perfect but the best path forward amid the economic challenges presented by the pandemic. Pat Dowell, head of the budget committee, said it was far from ideal but included the best of the city’s limited options.“Nothing about this year has been easy,” Dowell said. “The city budget is no exception.”(Updates with mayor’s comments in third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
