AWS Architect & Economics❤️ ❤️ Economic policy encourages credit use and discourages the repayment of debt. That's how we in the private sector got so indebted.

Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio after he tortured illegal immigrants. Now his justice department is prosecuting people who leave them water. And tomorrow, he will be the first President in history not to formally recognize MLK Day. Raise your hand if you see the connection.

DonaId J. Trump 21h
I am holding 800,000 American families “hostage” until the Democrats agree to fund my Boarder Wall. I even promised Democrats to temporerily “freeze” some of the horrible policies my Administration enacted against children, but Dems still refuse to build my Wall. TOTAL DISGRACE!!

"As with the right’s attacks on , the nature of [the American Enterprise Institute's] attacks on is laughably extreme and nonsensical. When they attack MMT, they spread our views."

NB. This is indeed NOT just happening by itself. Money from the US helps establish the conditions of terror that these people are fleeing. Ironically, here finds himself among those "on the left" in the bible verses: Matthew 25:41-45

The odds of me making over $10 million in one year while serving in public office are probably as slim as the odds of the GOP ever understanding what a marginal tax rate is. But if it ever got to that, I’d be happy to contribute more for our bridges, teachers, and firefighters.

Lastly, we wouldn’t need to talk about bathrooms at all if we acted like adults, washed our hands + minded our own business instead of trying to clock others. Going by track record, I’d feel safer in a bathroom w/ a trans woman than a powerful male executive any day of the week.

This stuff infects some Democrats, too. Because in our overall discourse, nonviolent protest somehow gets deemed as not “civil,” yet stripping women’s rights or incarcerating children on the border doesn’t receive the same characterization. What’s up with that?🕵🏽‍♀️

Just look at the marginal tax rate discussion. The right’s biggest strategy against my marginal tax rate proposal isn’t to argue against it - it‘s to lie about it, and imply that it’s a tax on all income, bc that helps their characterization of me as a “crazy/dumb“ Latina woman.

If you notice, on the right they’ll flatly call people blanket terms, and even make things up. And I don’t mean trolls - I mean their biggest commentators + TV figures. This is different from criticizing a specific take you disagree with, or pointing out discriminatory patterns.

Or we will be discussing how relaxing the fiscal constraint and being willing to run the economy hot created space for the decarbonization investment that allowed the planet to remain habitable.

There are real constraints. 😉 I’m sure (who created the brilliant video) had to make tough choices about what to include, given attention spans.

The problem with Liberalism is that you can’t secure inalienable rights with alienable money.

If you've been hearing a lot about modern monetary theory in the news and from and if you talk about big progressive ideas like and and get "How do you pay for it?" This is a great, short video to get an intro.
