Folks who encouraged young ppl to turn out& vote bc “you can work to influence the coming admin” should be encouraging, not cry division, when they do just that. Lobbyists don’t ever sit back & give admins “a chance.” #1 mistake is thinking our democracy is “set it & forget it”

I hope someone else runs Cruz’s Twitter account because it’d be pretty embarrassing if a US Senator didn’t know this. Almost as embarrassing as when Sen. didn’t appear to know that Puerto Ricans don’t get to vote in the Presidential

Today marks 8 years since my son Jordan was stolen from me. Every year, I write a letter to my son. Read below - and remember there are still thousands of families in this country being torn apart every single day from gun violence.

The House doesn’t have filibusters, . We also passed several COVID relief packages to the Senate that not only include >$500 billion, but also prioritize helping real people as opposed to Wall St bailouts the GOP tries to pass off as “relief.” Nice try though 👍🏽

It is also a truly embarrassing indictment of what’s considered “center” politics in the US that objecting to the appointment of an official who helped cover up the murder of a Black child is deemed the “progressive, far left” position.

What is so hard to understand about this? Rahm Emanuel helped cover up the murder of Laquan McDonald. Covering up a murder is disqualifying for public leadership. This is not about the “visibility” of a post. It is shameful and concerning that he is even being considered.

I know it’s hard, but please consider your loved ones. Stay home if you can. A negative COVID test does not clear one for safe travel. You can be asymptomatic & test positive shortly after. You can get it en route. Don’t spread COVID to parents, loved ones, workers. Stay in!🏡

Imagine having this instead of a $740,000,000,000 military budget.

People across the country are going hungry, COVID is set to explode, and Mitch McConnell dismissed the Senate last week. I don’t know how these people can sleep at night. I really don’t.

Co-Sign. So much work to be done to undo the harms caused by Ben Carson who sees low income families as flawed in character, instead of victims of shortsighted policies & failed systems. Cc

I don't understand how it’s considered radical for progressives to fight for an equitable society, but it’s accepted that Senate Republicans would rather take a vacation for Thanksgiving and let thousands of people die from the virus than pass relief. Who’s really radical here?

Does anyone believe Rittenhouse would be released if he were Muslim & did the same thing in a diff context? For people who say “systemic racism doesn’t exist,” this is what it looks like: protection of white supremacy baked deep into our carceral systems. Law and disorder.

People who argue that dramatic changes to policing, including budgetary ones, will mean “violent people will be let out of jail to roam free” rarely ever acknowledge that’s actually the current system we have today for the privileged

Rahm Emanuel covered up the murder of a Black teenager, Laquan McDonald, while he was Mayor of Chicago. That he's being considered for a cabinet position is completely outrageous and, honestly, very hurtful.
