“People say if you have programs like these, people will stop working… It’s not about not working; it’s about just being able to take a little time off—to take a week and spend it with your kids, then go back to work. I wasn’t able to do that before…”

“How can you be pro-family and not for the child tax credit? So we’re in a reality where we don’t have a single Republican vote … We expect that once people have it, it will be hard for Republicans to repeal it,” @RepRoKhanna says about Biden’s spending bill. pic.twitter.com/Z8NGewPI0s

Are you a monthly member of @HumanityForward yet? Become one and fight fire with fire by putting your money to work lobbying for the people. Per dollar, it’s one of the most effective things you can do to pass and protect cash policies like the CTC. https://t.co/UREoM8BiDd

We need to be clear about who has made this worse, at least intellectually: neoclassical economists who for 40 years have refused to recognize place & want to give people bus tickets to move to already crowded and expensive metros. Easy for them to say, as they move all the time

Scaring people into fearing hyperinflation is a great way to pump your Bitcoin bag.
Higher inflation is temporary, and if you want to reduce it faster, then talk about actual ways of doing that like improving supply chains and doing more automation.https://t.co/L2XWwbAba8 https://t.co/pTO5guXVCV

Every major industry has come before Congress to answer for themselves—except for the oil & gas industry.
Next week, that changes. Fossil fuel executives will come before my committee, and we’ll hold them accountable to the American people.

If enough people read @StephanieKelton‘s The Deficit Myth, especially people in Congress, we wouldn’t be where we are right now, debating over how best to carve up the carcass of a bill, and what meat should stay on the bones. We’d be managing abundance.https://t.co/lZ7cGdM5VX
