I mean, look at this predictable nonsense. McConnell is even recycling anti-Obamacare rhetoric by mockingly saying, “if you like your child care, you can keep your child care." The problem is that childcare is unaffordable for many. This is completely out of touch.

Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) somehow slams the Build Back Better Act's investments in universal Pre-K and child care. "The Democrats have written their Toddler Takeover in ways that would turn families' finances literally upside down."

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) — still under investigation for federal sex crimes — lays out what House Oversight might look like under a Republican majority. Terrifying.

VP Kamala Harris announces a new initiative to designate “birthing-friendly hospitals." This is the first official government designation that rates hospitals based on the quality of their maternal health care.

The comedians who’ve had their work pulled from Spotify include John Mulaney, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, and Jim Gaffigan.

It’s your favorite comedians vs. Spotify. Comedians want to claim royalties on their spoken-word work — just like songwriters get paid for the use of their music and lyrics. Amid the dispute, Spotify has removed the work of hundreds of comics.

Your civics lesson for today. The rules of the U.S. Senate allow a single Senator (no matter how pea-brained) to block the nominations of qualified U.S. Attorneys around the country on the grounds that another Senator hurt his little feelings.

Rep. @AOC (D-NY) speaks in support of a pathway to citizenship: “We just lived through one, almost two years now, of a pandemic … where our country relied on undocumented people to survive.”

Mark Zuckerberg says his business model is all about “connecting with people.” We call BS. Rohingya refugees are suing Facebook for allowing hate speech against them to spread. 10,000 Rohingya Muslims were killed during a military crackdown in Myanmar in 2017.

Sexism is real. So are its consequences. Look no further than the medical field. A new study finds female physicians earn an estimated $2 million less than male physicians over a 40-year-career.

Weird Senate moment: Sen. Cotton (R-AR) held up all U.S. Attorney nominees from Dem states because Sen. Durbin (D-IL) interrupted him at a confirmation hearing over 8 months ago. Today, Durbin apologized, Cotton withdrew his objection, & 5 Attorneys were unanimously confirmed.

President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin squared off in a 2+ hour virtual meeting. Biden’s goal? Preventing an all-out invasion of Ukraine Putin’s goal? Keeping Ukraine from joining NATO

Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview last week with The Washington Times that “a lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out.” “I believe it’s a Walgreens in California cited it, but the data didn’t back it up."
