Great news: We’ve had a 45% drop in poverty.
Not great news: The 3 programs that cut poverty most — stimulus checks, increased food stamps, and expanded unemployment insurance — have ended or will soon revert to their pre-pandemic size.
Lesson: Poverty is a political choice.

Folks, we’ve seen this all before.
Republicans in Congress blow up the debt under a Republican president. And as soon as a Democrat enters the White House, they magically become spending hawks so they can hobble any proposed spending for Democrats’ programs.

Now imagine if our former president had encouraged everyone to get the vaccine as soon as it was available and if he’d even made one of his publicity stunts out of getting the vaccine himself?
It matters who people hear things from, and what they don’t hear from whom they trust. https://t.co/SnsY9P9GgG

I called @mattgaetz a pedophile to his face today.
Actually I screamed “I don’t think you’re a pedophile at all” to which Gaetz responded “Yes TF I am!” and had security toss me.

Hey guys, it’s time to get out of Afghanistan. The US had a responsibility admittedly,, 20 years clearly wasn’t enough, it’s unclear any amount of time would be. The enlightened articles now saying it’s “too soon” are just pathetic.
