@RBReich: FYI, the bipartisan infrastructure bill eliminates almost all climate spending. What good are roads and bridges if we lose the planet?

@PramilaJayapal: We spend more on defense than the next 11 nations COMBINED.It’s time to stop funneling money into endless war and start spending it here at home.Cut the Pentagon budget.

@RoKhanna: This budget boosts defense spending to an astronomical $778 billion. That’s well more than $2 billion PER DAY.If we’re winding down the endless wars, why is the budget going in the other direction?

@PramilaJayapal: With $25 billion, we could vaccinate the ENTIRE world.The last thing we need right now is more defense spending. It’s time to cut our bloated military budget and reinvest that money.

@BernieSanders: How do you feed your family, how do you pay to see a doctor, when you’re spending, 40, 50, 60% of your income on housing? You don’t! With the passage of this historic budget reconciliation bill, we can build the affordable housing that our country desperately needs.

@RBReich: 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.Don’t fall for it.

@RBReich: How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations? Because that’s who they are.

@scottsantens: Now imagine that billionaire is a parent getting $500/mo for two kids too, because of their annual taxable income of $1. With an annual inflation rate of 3%, that’s like a sales tax of $294k on their $10 million in spending. Their buying power goes down more than the CTC helps.

@RoKhanna: Defense spending is estimated to be up $158 billion compared to 2017.Ending the endless wars means we can use that money to invest in the rest of the economy we’ve neglected for 20 years.

@OurRevolution: “To help pay for the spending these provisions would collapse dozens of tax benefits aimed at energy companies — especially oil & gas firms — into three categories focused on renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.” #EndFossilFuelSubsidies
