Assembly Republicans have hired someone named Carol to help answer their questions about the 2020 election. Just don’t ask Carol or her bosses what her last name is. "No comment," she said Wednesday before hanging up on a reporter.

And throw on top of this the fact that about a hundred years ago the original patent for insulin was sold for $1 each to it’s 3 inventors so the world would have access. This is more than just greed. It should be criminal.

Cost for one vial of Humalog insulin in 2009: $93 Cost for the same vial of insulin in 2021: $297 As long as the greed of the pharmaceutical industry continues to go unchecked, they can charge YOU, the American people, whatever price they want! Enough. Time to end their greed.

Looking forward to an apology - & more importantly changed behavior - to @StateRepHong & COS @nadaelmikashfi (who is also pretty kick ass on her own). Leave the arrogance at the door. I respect Capitol staff in both parties who serve, but they should also earn it. Be better.

@MarkPocan What exactly has Fauci done that could be considered heroic? Last I checked, lying and covering things up what is the opposite of what that word means. But what do you care? You’re part of the elites who don’t have to suffer from the unscientific power grabs.

Yup. Start with extreme gerrymandered maps from a decade ago. Add even more gerrymandering. Call the fair and balanced. Right………. The courts can’t let this go by.

The GOP’s proposed #redistricting maps are out and they actually #gerrymander the state *more* than it currently is. That’s right—they looked at our current most-rigged-in-the-nation maps and decided the problem is they aren’t rigged quite enough.

Maps based on seriously gerrymandered maps of ten years ago do not follow the rules laid out for legal redistricting. GOP proposed maps are only continuing -and in some cases intensifying - the serious gerrymandering that occurs in Wisconsin. The courts should see through these.

When anti-vax megachurch pastors promote religious exemption letters for "anyone" who wants one, you have to ask: is this even "religion?" Asking for a friend at the IRS.
