@scottsantens: 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.

@FundForHumanity: It seems as if pre-K will remain in the negotiated BBB bill. Unless simultaneous measures are taken to transform K-12, our children are not going to benefit from this. Right now, 8th graders proficient in math = 34%, proficient in reading = 34%. That means 67% are not.

@AonghusOg: A good bit more detail here on Basic Income for Artists. Number of participants is small, but weekly rate is right at €325. Absolute game-changer for the 2,000 lucky folks who manage to find Wonka’s golden ticket…

@dpakman: It’s increasingly clear that most Republicans would gleefully vote Trump again in 2024 and that Biden margin in 2020 was extremely tenuous. It’s not looking great, right?
