@TonyStark I don't want to keep anyone from voting, but I wonder if "everyone must wear a mask" contributed to lower Republican turnout. (I do believe that people shouldn't be allowed inside any public building without a mask. Vote by mail and use contactless grocery delivery so you don't expose your driver if you don't want to wear one.)

@MariaHill
We have some local races this year and I will be voting once again by mail. 📬

I guess if Republicans wanted to listen to a big, orange buffoon and not wear a mask or vote the same way he's done, that's on them.

@TonyStark It's the kind of song that I always want to hear at an open mic night, but instead it's coming from one of the best-known bands in the country, if not the world. 🎶​

This is good work for a short time period by the new administration, but there should be consequences for the last administration that did absolutely nothing to track the whereabouts of children and parents who they separated. It's heinous.

The parents of 506 separated migrant children still haven't been found, however. Lawyers say the parents of 322 of them were likely to have been deported.

@Dagny @TonyStark Some Republican gets an idea how to thwart the will of the voters, the rest of them want it too.

@YinzPittsburghers If some PA Republicans complained about my politics, I'd wear that as a badge of honor.

@Jen She's probably the best Republican, or Romney. Being the best Republican is not hard. All you have to do is be more than "concerned" which is all that Susan Collins can manage.

How to know when your party is in trouble:  when they put out a statement that they are not the party of white supremacists.

In the DC media market, a right wing group is running ads that are anti-Vanita Gupta, Biden’s pick to be associate attorney general, complete with scary music and phony accusations ala the infamous Republican Willie Horton ad. 

Call your Senators today, generally your Republican Senators, and tell them to confirm these completely qualified Biden nominees. The GOP is still trying to sabotage our government from functioning by delaying these confirmations for no reason. Just say that. 202-224-3121 ☎️📱

Many of Biden’s nominees of color run into turbulence in the Senate:

@TonyStark
Democratic legislators try and therefore once in a while achieve something of enduring and eventually popular benefit. 

What have Republicans done for us lately? We'll get to bipartisanship when they get on board with helping people. Until then, suffer it out, Mr. Portman, while Democrats fix your mess.

@TonyStark Occasionally, I am disappointed that the Washington Post runs these pieces, but on the other hand, I do not mind the world being shown how ridiculous Rob Portman and his ilk are.

@TonyStark
There is massive bipartisan support for the Biden COVID relief bill as attested to by up to 80% public support for it, depending on how the questions are phrased, and this figure includes a substantial majority of Republican voters.

Rob Portman has become a pathetic excuse of a human being. I trust that Biden and Congressional Democrats will ignore his whining and gaslighting. What the fuck, indeed.

@TonyStark

Get your own act in gear, Portman, and do something, anything that's bipartisan.  Anything. We're waiting.

This is a very, very important article to read to understand from a medical perspective, the one that counts by the way, what to expect moving forward.

@TonyStark And anyone who runs as an R in Ohio would be just like him.

I hope Ohio and the rest of the country is ready to help replace Portman with a Democrat in 2022.

I wondered for almost a year as to why the previous administration did not take this simple step. I am pleased to see we have an administration that is doing it now.

@SeaMountain So now they're the Goldilocks caucus. Neera Tanden has said too many bad things. Deb Haaland hasn't said enough. Find us someone who's just right! @HopeVanDyne
