Nice tribute by @RoKhanna. But you know what? @RepAGonzalez needn’t be “driven out of DC.” I don’t know if he’d agree to run in 2022 as a Democrat–but Dems can’t win the district without him or someone he’d support as their nominee. So why not reach out and see what’s possible? https://t.co/B1Ov9RuS04

Pandemic aid kept millions of Americans out of poverty last year, new Census Bureau data show. Without the first two rounds of stimulus checks, 11.7 million more people would have fallen beneath the poverty line. https://t.co/FjukFa6XWr

Child Tax Credit recipients, how many of you have been able to return to work or increase your work hours because of your CTC payments?
For those without kids, do you know people who have been able to return to work because of the CTC?

It’s a lot easier to find a better job that’s more suited to you when you can afford to survive each month without a job. Unconditional basic income will create a labor market that better matches worker to work, paid and unpaid. This will increase productivity and wellbeing. https://t.co/6dCn12OGOL

Interesting to see people have strong opinions on something that may or may not be true without reading the book that purportedly contains the information people have strong opinions about. Whatever you think, withhold your judgment until you read said book. Then form an opinion.

Your reminder that in the wake of 9/11, George W. Bush asked Americans to shop. Not sacrifice, not do without, not dedicate themselves to their communities, but buy more. It was patriotism by consumption.
PS: It didn’t work. https://t.co/JHZoHaUUJ7

Many games already include a form of UBI without calling it UBI (like passing Go) but games should explicitly include UBI. Make it clear that a dependable income/points floor is necessary, and that all income/points earned in addition to it are added on top of that floor. https://t.co/kNTiKNRq7Y

Because Rogan threw everything at his Covid, he can’t point to any one thing as helping, but even if he only used ivermectin, he still wouldn’t be able to point to that either without a control group. He can say ivermectin didn’t hurt him. He can’t say it’s better than a placebo. https://t.co/6ENHXRCa7K

No doubt. I’m trans. Have a BS in CS. I was looking for a job in a field with a 20 year work history..precovid. Took me two years. In desperation I went to a temp agency…overheard the boss telling them to not let anyone go without a job offer. They told me they had none.
