As Special Counsel, Brett Kavanaugh proposed a series of totally inappropriate + sexually explicit questions about Monica Lewinsky. Today he stands accused of sexual assault. How could any Senator allow his nomination to proceed without investigation?

256 women have won Congressional primaries this year ALONE - and Democrats have nominated almost 80% them.💅🏽 The GOP seems to have a problem with nominating women to office, but not as much trouble nominating men riddled with sexual assault allegations.

“There is a systemic issue here, and that is the modern-day colonial relationship the United States has with Puerto Rico.” is absolutely right. The people of Puerto Rico should not be treated like second-class citizens as this administration has done.

Medicare for All costs $32 trillion. Our *current* system costs more than that for less care than Medicare for All would provide. Medicare for All aims to cover physical, dental, and mental healthcare for less money than the current setup.

Medicare for All (H.R.676) has been on the floor of Congress since 2003. The bill is 15 years old. A stream of studies from both the left and right have shown both the funding mechanisms & immense cost savings of a Medicare for All system. Almost every modern nation has one.

It truly is outrageous how little scrutiny the rushed $2 trillion dollar GOP tax cut got from *sitting* members of Congress. Who asked them, “What services do you plan to cut? Will the GOP be slashing Medicare or Social Security to match?” No one answered. And it passed.

. identifies the root cause of the crisis: the U.S. government’s colonial relationship with Puerto Rico which relegates residents to second class citizenship. We need a Marshall Plan for Puerto Rico.

Medicare for All is projected to save the country trillions of dollars. The question isn’t, “How do we pay for Medicare for All?” - it’s “How can everyday Americans afford our current healthcare system as it is?” Here’s a breakdown.
