Your annual reminder that Dr. King believed in guaranteed universal basic income that gave all people a dignified life, guaranteed housing for all, guaranteed access to a high quality education, & said that “no one should be forced to live in poverty while others live in luxury.”

Medicare for All is not radical or far-left. Every other industrialized country on planet earth guarantees health care as a human right. What's radical is constructing an entire health care system around profit and denial of care.

My father didn’t just happen upon death. White supremacists assassinated him to silence his voice & stop his work of eradicating the “Triple Evils”: Racism, Militarism, Poverty. Those who unrepentantly benefited from these evils railed against their eradication. They still do.

. @Andy_Levin on msnbc just now: interfaith leaders including at least one imam are on the ground in Colleyville to provide support and deescalation however they can. Grateful for the reminder that Jews aren’t alone as we pray for everyone’s safety. Fear & hate won’t divide us.

Sending prayers and love to the Beth Israel community and synagogue family. No one should have to experience this, especially in a place of worship. I cannot imagine the horror folks are feeling. Hoping for a peaceful resolution.

A favorite photo of my parents. What a genuine, joyful smile. And I wanted to share it with you on Daddy’s 93rd birthday. #MLK #MLKDay #CorettaScottKing

I want to encourage us today concerning voting rights legislation. There is hope. We have yet to engage as fully as we can. And there are people remaining to be won over to the cause. I know it looks bleak, but lift your heads, spread ways to help, and keep the faith.

From Reconstruction to the Civil Rights Era to now. Progress with civil + voting rights has been crushed by the filibuster. It's an undemocratic tool used by a shrinking minority of extreme reactionaries+bought elected officials to stop the wishes of a diverse majority. End it.

Between 1917 and 1994, half of the bills that failed because of the filibuster were civil rights legislation, including anti-lynching bills proposed in 1922 and 1935. U.S. Rep. @RashidaTlaib says it's time for "political courage."

I get chills listening to my Republican colleagues describe voting rights legislation as a federal takeover of elections. The same argument was used to oppose the original Voting Rights Act.

Bipartisanship is not the goal—that is an empty talking point. The goal is justice. Abolish the Jim Crow filibuster & protect our voting rights.

People in our community & across the country turned out during a global pandemic to deliver the White House and Congress. Any member who gets in the way of delivering progress and meaningful change, especially on protecting voting rights should be ashamed of themselves.

The other side of the aisle has become a collection of hate, extremism & dangerous rhetoric. Warren Davidson's vile comments comparing the MURDER of 6 million Jews to vaccine and mask policies that will save lives is abhorrent.

A worker making the $7.25/hr federal minimum wage would have to work over 17 hours just to be able to buy this COVID home test. #Fightfor15
