Progressives are saying the best way to beat a Trumpified GOP is to pass bold policies on childcare, wages, expanded healthcare, prescription drug prices, broadband, clean tech jobs that actually improve lives of those left behind! Nothing inconsistent! https://t.co/2pHFLfIBqn

Inflation is not purely a money supply phenomenon. It’s a signal of our investment priorities. If the prices of healthcare are skyrocketing, then we should invest more in healthcare. If housing prices are rising, we should invest in more housing supply.
Focus on real priorities!

often told higher inflation hurts people with low income most. general statements don’t always capture the nuance, especially in times of turmoil.

The economy still has huge room to grow without pushing up prices. We’re still 7 million jobs short of where we were in Jan 2020. Retail and office space is empty. Factories aren’t near capacity.
Inflation itself — structural, accelerating price increases — is a total mythology.

Today, @POTUS signed an Executive Order to promote competition – which includes ensuring high-speed internet is more accessible and affordable.
Increased competition will drive down prices for all Americans. https://t.co/YEl9CFjJi6

It’s time to expand Medicare to:
✅ Cover vision, dental, and hearing
✅ Cut prescription drug prices through negotiations
✅ Lower the eligibility age
Let’s do it through reconciliation and help pave the way for finally guaranteeing health care as a human right.

Biden will sign a sweeping executive order today to promote competition in the US economy. It aims to lower prescription drug prices, ban or limit non-compete agreements that the WH says impedes economic mobility & crack down on Big Tech and internet service providers.
