How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations?
Because that’s who they are.

Hey guys, it’s time to get out of Afghanistan. The US had a responsibility admittedly,, 20 years clearly wasn’t enough, it’s unclear any amount of time would be. The enlightened articles now saying it’s “too soon” are just pathetic.

America’s 6-month experiment with what is essentially a universal basic income for kids will grow the economy, reduce unemployment, and help make the case to make it permanent, increase the amount provided, and implement a full UBI. —@scottsantens https://t.co/UDad330MV0

The wrong way to go about reducing homelessness is criminalizing it. The right way is to guarantee an amount of resources sufficient to achieve housing as a human right and to help those who have issues besides lack of money (eg mental health issues) that perpetuate homelessness. https://t.co/Z3rk4Xwutb

HISTORICAL REMINDER: We would have UBI in the US today if, in 1968, a couple of Democrat senators had not voted the bill down because the amount wasn’t generous enough. It had passed with Republican support during Nixon’s presidency. Just sayin’ https://t.co/YD5DuquOZV

Our progressive movement isn’t powered by corporate PACs — it’s powered by grassroots donors!
So to give my thanks, I’m making some calls! If you donate any amount by our end-of-month deadline, you might hear from me.

Plus I think Twitter has some kind of algorithm. Not sure exactly how it works but I’ve been monitoring it which I enjoy doing. Some people’s posts get viewed & others do not. Use hashtags, it’ll increase the amount of traffic going to your account, respond to other people too.

When a Christian with credibility discovers very private information about someone, there is no amount of money that can make that Christian talk. That’s what a true Christian is really about. All Christian’s want is for the person to be a better person.

There are lots of ways to reduce #gerrymandering, but the best approach is replacing single-member districts with proportional multi-winner districts. Then no amount of gerrymandering can block voters from having #FairRepresentation. https://t.co/yACyXyCBlG
