Frankly, this is not only disappointing, it’s reckless. Militarization does not keep us safe, investments in human needs do. 50 House leaders requested that this budget be reinvested into progressive priorities, but were ignored. https://t.co/aUbGGnuiLv

Cancel culture is destroying all of America's cherished traditions like voter suppression, anti-trans bigotry, and inciting violence on social media.

McConnell takes aim at corporate US: “Parts of the private sector keep dabbling in behaving like a woke parallel government. Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order."

Interesting how McConnell suddenly cares about corporate power as soon as it jeopardizes the GOP's voter suppression schemes. https://t.co/BmX8UJwHG7

Impt @AP piece frm @BrianSlodysko on new @Public_Citizen report. Over 50M was spent by corporate America to support state electeds pushing voter suppression bills. We need to pass #S1--we have a both a campaign finance problem & a voting rights attack. https://t.co/CSsgNeUa80

Every day we go without abolishing the filibuster is a day we lose to show the American people what the government can do for them.

1/3 I welcome @SenSanders to Birmingham and appreciate his push for a progressive workplace. I often say we are the Bernie Sanders of employers, but that’s not quite right because we actually deliver a progressive workplace https://t.co/Fq8D6vyuh9

Texas's head regulator vehemently defended fossil fuels after the state's blackouts. She also profits from oil & gas. As @PublicCitizenTX says, Texas regulatory agencies are “explicitly in service of industry.” This is what a broken system looks like. https://t.co/LLSihkFkV0
