Let's remember that probably all it would take to end this madness is for Mitch McConnell to say, "ok, let's vote."

The CODEL to Afghanistan included a required stop in Brussels for pilot rest. In Brussels, the delegation was scheduled to meet with top NATO commanders, U.S. military leaders and key allies–to affirm the United States’ ironclad commitment to the NATO alliance. (1/4)

Also, it's weird that economists don't think giving progressively more to lower income families would be better--that's what economic theory would dictate!!!

New Poll: During the longest shutdown in history, key parts of Trump's base — from suburban men to white evangelicals to white men without a college degree — have slipped in their support for the president.

There's actually a hunger for this that the DC bubble is missing.

No - I really really hope WaPo covers his policies in depth when he lays them out, along with the policies of all of the candidates. That is different from "gotcha" coverage before he has formulated his policies.

Beto said he doesn't have all the answers. Oh my god! We can't have a president with humility! That would be a disaster!

DC press now critiquing Beto for being unrehearsed, showing inner conflict, showing deliberation.

Only 36% of substance use disorder treatment facilities in US offer any type of medication to treat & just 6% offer all 3 FDA-approved meds. Can you imagine if same were true for another potentially fatal illness? ⁦

Sick. "We have to hammer on abusers in every way possible," Sackler wrote when he was president of Purdue. "They are the culprits and the problem. They are reckless criminals." Sick. Sick. Sick.

Couple senior Republican lawmakers tell me the only way this breaks open is if TSA employees stay home and Americans get furious about their flights. That’s the only out, they say. And they’re close to the WH.

I'm genuinely excited about our field of candidates. I keep saying: paid leave, universal pre-k, child care are vastly underrated issues. Gillibrand leads on paid leave.

Many "Green New Deal" proponents oppose including a carbon tax (with offsets), carbon capture/storage, nuclear, biomass. The biggest enviro groups are concerned.
