The House of Representatives faces another day without a Speaker. Members of the Problem Solvers Caucus Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Rep Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) discuss the GOP’s messy stalemate and the bipartisan goals still ahead for Congress. This season’s gifts and travel expenses have upped consumer debt; CNBC’s senior personal finance correspondent Sharon Epperson reports on the holiday’s hefty price tags for American consumers–as well as tips for paying them off. Plus, Amazon’s weathering another round of layoffs, and the EU is asking travelers from China to take Covid tests before arrival.
