It's twice as big, in real dollars, as the New Deal was. This can be the Congress that goes from 12 years of universal education to 14 years; the makes the largest investment in fighting climate change ever; that cuts what families pay for child care in half.

A few reasons BBB is getting slashed • Biden is pursuing a New Deal agenda without New Deal majorities • He has ~96% of Democrats but the other ~4% have veto power and are wielding it ruthlessly • Dems never prioritized their policies, thus lacked a playbook for how to trim

Rep. Ro Khanna making very simple asks of oil CEOs (stop producing more oil, do an indepedent audit, tell API to stop lobbying against EVs and methane regs, leave API if it doesn’t align with companies' values) and getting blank stares and silence

“Today, don’t think of yourselves as CEOs,” @RoKhanna tells Big Oil execs. “Think of yourselves as human beings.”

This is an interesting point by point rebuttal from @RoKhanna on oil's so-called support for climate action: "you'll tout carbon capture and storage" even though all of the carbon capture is being "used to enhance oil extraction and actually increase CO2 emissions in the world"

Rep. @RoKhanna mentions the hunger strike being held by five climate activists outside the White House. "What will you do to end the hunger strike?" He asked Big Oil executives.

Five young climate activists are on their 7th day of a hunger strike outside the White House to demand government action on climate. One was hospitalized, and now they're all striking on wheelchairs. @ella_nilsen and I talked to them.

Looking forward to BP, Exxon and other polluters testifying this morning at 9:30am CT. Thank you @RoKhanna for making this happen and for pushing for the end of fossil fuel subsidies. No taxpayer money should be subsidizing the climate crisis.

Today, @rokhanna & I are chairing a hearing to unveil the truth behind the oil industry’s role they played in climate change 🌎 For decades, they have knowingly spread disinformation about the role of fossil fuels in causing global warming. Time’s up.

The Democrats must define and widely market what this legislation does. KISS (keep it simple stupid). Currently, the media does this by echoing Republican criticism...it’s massive spending. In fact, it’s an investment in America to be a global power and compete with China. 🇺🇸

A column in which I turn to @RoKhanna, @PaulBegala, @SimonWDC, @ThirdWayKessler, @finneyk, @Will_PPI, @Tim_Roemer, @NormOrnstein & others about how the Dems can make the most of Biden's achievements to date & those that may (fingers crossed) soon happen.

Ban Toni Morrison? What’s next Faulkner? Melville? Hawthorne? Any writer, no matter how brilliant, critical of any aspect of American society? Let’s not remove these great thinkers from the American cannon.

I appreciate this, & I laude you for being one of the few Congress members who regularly answer questions from progressive media. If left electeds want alternative media support like the right has, it must support the independent media infrastructure the way the right does.

I just had an interview with Channel 4, a British station, which to my surprise was FAR tougher than many American media interviews. And the journalist was sympathetic to me! A tough press is good for democracy and @briebriejoy was fair.
