She remains silenced and imprisoned to this day. This young USAF Veteran should be with her family not spending her 20’s behind bars. It’s long past time to #BringRealityHomehttps://t.co/sHlJI9XYgc

The GOP wants to rebrand itself as the party of working people, yet 166 House Republicans today voted against a bill to protect America's health care & social service workers from workplace violence.
"Whatever may come, the survival of the American experiment depends on the majority overthrowing the stranglehold the hidebound GOP minority has on both the Senate and the Electoral College."
