. @AOC : “Forcing poor and working class people to give birth against their will, against their consent, against their ability to provide for themselves or their child is a profound economic issue.” This is the future MAGA Republicans are fighting for.

Brazil’s next president should be chosen by the voters of that country and no one else. It’s an important step forward for democracy that Brazil’s military leadership made clear yesterday that they will respect the results of Sunday’s election.

Hearing @lizzo play some of the Library's priceless antique instruments on Monday was such a gift, and we were honored and happy to help her share that gift with her concert audience Tuesday night. Here is some more behind-the-scenes footage of her Library tour. #LizzoAtLOC

Abortion rights are a class struggle too. When the powerful force people to give birth against their will, they trap millions into cycles of economic setback and desperation. Especially in a country without guaranteed healthcare. And desperate workers are far easier to exploit.

Rep. @AOC (D-NY) slams GOP claim that abortion is not an economic issue as the view of a “person who’s never had to ... carry a child”: “Forcing poor and working-class people to give birth against their will ... against their ability to provide … is a profound economic issue.”

Rep. @AOC (D-NY): “The same folks who tell us … that COVID’s just a flu, that climate change isn’t real, that January 6th was just nothing but a tourist visit, are now trying to tell us that transgender people aren’t real.”

Brett Favre when asking Bryant in 2018 for help finding funding to construct lockers at the facility: “[It would be helpful] [i]f someone would build them on [their] spare time. Poncho mentioned the prison industry possibly as a builder.”

Why is it that Dems & some Republicans can come together to pass a policing bill, but can’t pass living wages, voter protections & extended child tax credits?

Solidarity with the courageous women and allies in Iran protesting for their freedom. Mahsa Amini was senselessly murdered by the same patriarchal and autocratic forces repressing women the world over. The right to choose belongs to us all, from hijabs to reproductive care.

Shout out to the 9 no votes, which includes @AOC @JamaalBowmanNY @AyannaPressley @CoriBush @RashidaTlaib . I see you. These types of DOJ grants only expand surveillance + criminalization. They can be used to fund Sheriff's offices to target immigrants for arrest and detention.

To be (hijabi) or not be (hijabi) is the business of no state or man. Solidarity with women resisting patriarchal control, the world over. 💪🏾

I was in the room when this happened and it was just as gross and wild in person as it is here. People rightly discuss conflicts of interest of members of Congress, but lobbying of senior staff (who move on behalf of members + committees) is a huge part of the problem too.

This is inexcusable. A truly wild moment yesterday from the House Financial Services Committee, where they laugh about the revolving door from Congress to the banks.

In an @FSCDems hearing, we pushed private banks on their handling of Paycheck Protection Program loans. This program was designed to help small business owners survive the pandemic, but instead there are numerous reports that eligible loans are not being fully forgiven.
