@RBReich: Tell me why Democrats are split over Biden’s plan to tax capital gains at 39.6% — up from 20% — for those earning more than $1 million? This should be a slam-dunk.

@RBReich: 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.

@PramilaJayapal: Reminder that Mitch McConnell and the GOP are “100% focused” on blocking Biden’s agenda. No more delays. Let’s go big, bold, and now.

@RBReich: To get through the Senate and avoid a filibuster, every Senate Democrat must now back Biden’s emerging $3.5 trillion plan, testing their unity and commitment to the nation. Will they pass that test?

@RBReich: Never forget that the same Senate Republicans who claim we can’t afford climate-resilient infrastructure (which includes roads and bridges) think Biden’s proposed $753 billion defense budget isn’t big enough.

@scottsantens: Great overview here by @dylanmatt of Biden’s history-making monthly tax credit for kids, how parents can make sure they get it, why it’s so important to be made permanent, and the politics of why Biden isn’t pushing to make it permanent just yet.

@RBReich: Biden’s “stimulus” programs are fine, but temporary. The most important economic reform would be to correct this structural imbalance by reducing monopoly power, strengthening unions, and getting big money out of politics.
