Using poverty as a weapon to coerce people into accepting wages they would never otherwise accept if they had the power to refuse those wages thanks to already having their basic needs met is wrong, but it’s also not a good deal.
Child poverty alone costs us over $ 1 trillion/yr.

This is our broken, for-profit system at its worst. This policy will force people to delay or outright refuse necessary care and could cost lives.
Enough with the greed. We need Medicare for All.https://t.co/yvf2bQrdFq

When companies like Walmart refuse to pay their employees a living wage, taxpayers pay the price—while their shareholders make huge profits.
This is why we must raise the minimum wage and pass the PRO Act. Our workers deserve better. pic.twitter.com/kIjmiKNzp6

New from me for @HumanityForward about the $ 300 a week boost to unemployment checks. Is it causing the unemployed to refuse reemployment? Is that even a bad thing? And regardless, does that mean it’s evidence against UBI?
Spoiler alert: No, no, and no.https://t.co/kSN3QQxmS7

.@SenatorSinema, if the filibuster isn’t ended (because you and @Sen_JoeManchin refuse to work with other senate Democrats to end it), the Senate won’t pass voting rights. And if the Senate won’t pass voting rights, our democracy will die.

The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act is the first step towards stopping racism and bias in policing. It’s been 11 months since we first passed this bill in the House, yet Senate Republicans refuse to act.
If we must end the filibuster to get this done, then let’s end it.

We’re not doing enough as a city to help our small businesses re-open. We need to establish a People’s Bank to channel hundreds of millions into women and minority-owned small businesses — because we know the big banks refuse to.https://t.co/xpviiy5lvn pic.twitter.com/1jeuUAOZvh

Remember that every psychotic thing Marjorie Taylor Greene says is the official platform of the GOP. She is the one currently touring on their behalf. She is the one they added to committees. They refuse to say they disagree with any of it—because they don’t.
