Just spitballing here, but with less than 12,000 coal miners in West Virginia, what if in return for Joe Manchin’s support, the #BuildBackBetter bill included $100,000 in “job transition aid” for every miner? Total cost would be $1.2 billion. Let Manchin try to vote against that!

ICE agents will no longer conduct mass raids on workplaces where undocumented immigrants are employed, the DHS head said — part of a new effort to go after businesses that "exploit unauthorized workers."

The problem is not that Democrats don’t know what’s popular or need more polling to tell them what’s popular — it’s that what’s popular offends their corporate donors and they typically refuse to do things that offend their corporate donors.

Powerful forces are trying to tear our communities apart in an effort to prevent a multiracial democracy which will threaten the interests of powerful elites. We can’t let them win. Public education the bedrock of democracy #blm

#Climate change provisions in Dem spending bill are non-negotiable from @AOC point of view. She told me on @facethenation that “we cannot afford to increase carbon or just fossil fuel emissions at this time. That is simply the science.” ⁦@FaceTheNation

The media focus on hazy topline numbers is a gift favoring the tiny # of holdouts. It lets them get away w/ saying “oh I want X trillion, not Y” instead of actual positions- “cut childcare” or “I want to block making Rx drugs affordable” People should know what they want to gut

Progressives, incl. @AOC, have argued for a while that the focus on the top-line number for the bill distracts from the much more important question of what it would actually do. Here's @BernieSanders on Manchin's objections.

It is why authoritarians create or claim such things exist even if they don't. "only I can fix the problem" but you know those desperate and confused people claim education and objective facts are Fake/lies

Sinema is meeting with corporate lobbyists and donors, but will not even meet with Democratic lawmakers in Congress. Incredible.
