Why is the media criticizing Pelosi for rejecting House Republican picks for the select committee on the insurrection? Bipartisanship is of no value to a democracy when it requires compromising with people who don’t believe in democracy.

It’s actually a species survival idea. If we don’t acknowledge our humanity and the health of the planet we share, we will go the way of the dinosaurs. https://t.co/QbhScxjHJT

often told higher inflation hurts people with low income most. general statements don’t always capture the nuance, especially in times of turmoil.
used car prices account for almost a third of inflation recently. that hits middle and higher income more. pic.twitter.com/Fo0CXng3nC

There’s a good reason for the lack of trust, our institutions mired in 20thC premises are incapable of delivering for us. That’s why UBI is the solution – everyone gets it like clockwork with no strings attached. It gets clawed back with taxes from those who don’t need it. https://t.co/BNios0uTvn

In Ward 14, Congresswoman @AOC:
“Big money is lonely because we’ve got the people on our side…
Dark money doesn’t care about you. They don’t care about our communities…

Thinking of this response from 2019 again today after reading about all the Americans not getting vaccinated because they don’t trust the government.
I’m also thinking again about how Finland’s basic income experiment showed increased trust as one of the many positive results. https://t.co/D7lQiYTWZI

One of the reasons people are still dying despite the existence of an extremely safe and effective vaccine is because they don’t trust the government. We can blame media like FOX, but the fact remains it’s also because of gerrymandering, the filibuster, FPTP, and Citizens United.
