@NatashaRomanoff In case anyone needs a refresher on how awful Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham are. Merrick Garland is gracious, of course.
The mute button on my MacBook is getting a workout today, thanks to Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz.
A welcome and overdue development.
Supreme Court allows release of Trump tax returns to NY prosecutor:
@TonyStark I think I've found enough seats where all of these GQP fools in Congress can sit. I'd like to point out the potential for social distancing here, but I know they don't give a fuck about that.
Every time I read this kind of article by a Republican, I remind everyone that it was these guys who added an additional $7 TRILLION to our National Debt just in 2017. It's really insulting when they talk about the damage being foisted on our children and grandchildren. Their tax break was for the top 1% and they do nothing to help future generations. All they do is destroy things for them in advance.
@TonyStark I love how they think we didn't notice their sudden need to worry about the debt once the President changed over.
500,000 dead on their watch and they still want to tell us how it all should be run.
Since Republicans have gotten economic policy right (checks history) never - excuse me if I toss your useless advice, Steve Scalise another fawning Trump enabler, and Tim Phillips, President of a libertarian, Koch Brothers-backed organization.
It’s the Former Guy's and Republican’s failed leadership that helped get us to this moment. If they'd have advocated mask-wearing and proper social distancing early on or even at any point, things wouldn't be as bad as they are now. Give us all a break.
You can’t make America great again by selling everyone a red hat and charging the government $4 for a glass of water at your fleabag hotel. Until we pony up and invest in the nuts and bolts of economic activity (like roads and electric grids) we will be as deficient economically as we were politically on January 6.
Everything in Biden's plan is absolutely necessary. Take back the tax break to the 1%.
Democrats and Independents in the Senate, get this done without Republicans or find the few that are willing to work with you. Pass #CovidRelief
Mostly united over covid relief, Democrats face divisions over Biden’s massive second economic plan-
With this extremely dire article, I'm going to link some ways to help.
1. This Texas Tribune article lists organizations providing help along with how to donate money or items or volunteer in the area if you can.
2. Beto O'Rourke has organized phone banks to do wellness checks on older Texans.
Please help if you are able. #Texas
Texas hospitals are running out of water amid power outages. Some are evacuating patients for safety.
As millions of Texans remain without power, hospitals throughout the state have lost water and heat, leaving doctors scrambling to conserve resources and care for vulnerable residents.
I don't understand why the average person wants or needs an AR-15. Those should only be in the hands of military. We definitely need gun safety laws in place.
At a time when the Congress, by virtue of being under Democratic control, can finally do a lot of things on a lot of fronts and solve long-festering problems, the preponderance of states are still in Republican control and as reactionary as ever. Georgia is a case in point. All the Republicans in state can talk about is voter suppression.
Republicans can't govern. Won't govern, more accurately.
