What if instead of $350 billion in state/local aid money to let Ron DeSantis cut taxes while raising spending, the ARP has just done the clean energy tax credits from IRA?

The GOP “civil war” in a nutshell. @KariLake dances on McCains grave and brags about crushing the Ducey wing of the party. @DougDucey runs ads for @KariLake

If you want another run at Child Tax Credit expansion your need to vote harder and expand the majority to include a couple more members who don’t share Sinema’s aversion to taxes or Manchin’s hangup about working requirements.

Democrats united to block a reinstatement of the child tax credit…and then allowed their lawmakers to vote for GOP legislation giving private equity a big gift

1. Pivoted from sticks to carrots (tax credits tied to emissions reductions) after failure of Waxman-Markey. 2. Took Manchin concerns seriously (permanent policy, hydrogen, etc.) 3. Brought climate groups, utilities, and labor together.

I’ve read frequently on the internet that the key dynamic is that Joe Manchin was acting in bad faith the whole time, desperate to protect his personal financial stake in the coal industry above any other consideration.

I said this before, but I find it very interesting that the climate part of BBB is basically the only thing that survived more or less intact and it’s interesting to think about why it did (some obvious answers to this IMO)

FWIW my own estimates (accounts for demographic change & turnout) suggest this claim is only half right. ⬆️ black turnout did result in a larger # of net democratic votes despite a rightward shift in vote margin. Not true of Latinos. The rightward shift was too big.

Anyone is welcome to steal and repost my dark Brandon memes without crediting me, I am currently only interested in seeing if I can get them to spread across twitter and onto other platforms.

Today, Marco Rubio put drug company profits over Floridians struggling to afford insulin. Send me to the Senate and I’ll do what’s right to lower prescription costs for the people in our state.

It’s important to keep in mind that as @JStein_WaPo reported in February, I was personally responsible for saving the then-dead congressional negotiations.
