@dpakman: I used to exclusively mute so that people wouldn’t even realize it and try to circumvent, but lately I’ve been blocking more to prevent people from becoming distractions to my other followers in the replies. Just less patience for the nonsense.

@RoKhanna: Agree @JamaalBowmanNY. @AOC has used technology very effectively with her homework helper program. But remote learning can never take the place of the in classroom experience. The challenge is how to harness the potential of the digital age without losing our humanity.

@RBReich: The filibuster is a tool of white supremacy.In the late 19th century, it was used to protect the pro-slavery Senate minority.The current filibuster was popularized during Jim Crow by Southern senators seeking to block civil rights legislation.It must be abolished.

@RichardRubinDC: IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig just used the word “stimmies” at the Senate Finance Committee, as in “The stimmies have been fantastic for us in terms of getting into the communities.”

@PramilaJayapal: Let’s be clear: the filibuster is a tool of voter suppression. It was used to block civil rights. It protected Jim Crow.Now, it’s being used now to block the voting reforms our democracy desperately needs.It’s time to get rid of it and protect the fundamental right to vote.

@RBReich: Joe Manchin says ending the filibuster will “destroy our government.”Meanwhile, McConnell just used the filibuster to kill an independent investigation into an attempted overthrow of the U.S. government.

@OurRevolution: “Amazon has used its dominant position to win at all costs. It maximizes its profits at the expense of third-party sellers and consumers, while harming competition, stifling innovation, and illegally tilting the playing field in its favor.”

@mattgaetz: I unequivocally condemn the violence against your constituents.The Second Amendment should NEVER be used to threaten anyone in civil society, including big tech. My remarks were deceptively edited.I respectfully request you review them in full to see the essential context.
