@scottsantens: GOP members of Congress don’t care about deficits or the national debt. They care about spending and taxing less. They love to cut taxes to increase deficits so they can declare that spending must be reduced. They love deficits. They use them. They just use them for their donors.

@scottsantens: Republican members of Congress also aren’t wrong to not actually care about the deficit. They’re only wrong about how they use it. The deficit should be used to benefit ALL OF US, not only the rich, and the debt ceiling is a bogus limit on what we can do.

@RoKhanna: No more misleading the public on climate change, and no more using taxpayer-funded subsidies to do it.We need to end oil and gas subsidies, and their executives need to answer Congress’ questions.

@FundForHumanity: What is going on in Congress is proof positive that the 535 people we elected don’t care at all about us or the U.S.A., only about re-election and/or ideological purity.

@representus: When district lines are redrawn every 10 years, the party in power often gerrymanders districts to ensure their own re-election. This is happening right now. The Freedom to Vote Act stops gerrymandering. Tell Congress to pass it:

@RoKhanna: We give the oil & gas industry tens of billions each year in taxpayer-funded subsidies, and in turn they mislead on climate action?Enough is enough. These executives will come before Congress and answer our questions.

@allinwithchris: “Now there’s going to be a magnifying glass because you’re going to have to answer under oath whether you’re actually engaged in that kind of lobbying,” says Rep. Ro Khanna on the oil companies testifying before Congress.

@FundForHumanity: “Congress shall make no law. . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the PEOPLE peaceably to assemble. . .” The Bill of Rights pertains to protecting the INDIVIDUAL from the power of government, it says absolutely nothing about corporations, etc.

@scottsantens: “She’s also hoping Congress will keep the enhanced tax credit though she’s not counting on it. ‘I don’t get my hopes up that our government will do the right thing for women or families or children,’ she said.”Americans are so used to Congress sucking.

@scottsantens: Sitting member of Congress representing Iowa shares a clearly satirical article from an Onion-inspired website as if it’s true, and 4 days later she still hasn’t deleted it. How difficult is it to tell that a story including an interview with Army veteran Bigolballs is fake?
