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.

Child Tax Credit recipients, how many of you have been able to return to work or increase your work hours because of your CTC payments?
For those without kids, do you know people who have been able to return to work because of the CTC?

It’s a lot easier to find a better job that’s more suited to you when you can afford to survive each month without a job. Unconditional basic income will create a labor market that better matches worker to work, paid and unpaid. This will increase productivity and wellbeing. https://t.co/6dCn12OGOL

We don’t want to increase taxes on the rich just for the sake of it. 99% of Americans have a net worth less than $ 4.4 million.
But if we tax those handful that are worth billions? That’s money that can go into child care, health care, or other services. We need a wealth tax.

When everyday Americans get a raise, they pay income taxes on their new salary.
But when billionaires increase their wealth, they can almost totally delay paying taxes of any kind.
The system has to work for all. That starts with a wealth tax.https://t.co/XVmZdIIUvn

This is nonsense. Vermont is *the very best of any state* in its Covid hospitalization situation, per this data – 4 per 100,000! (Florida is at 80 per 100,000.) Vermont has a 141% increase because it went from…11ish total people hospitalized to 26. https://t.co/KZIDFTeUeF
