Health care is a human right, not a job benefit. We cannot continue spending twice as much per capita as any other country, while 92 million are uninsured or under-insured, and 68,000 die unnecessarily each year. Medicare for All is coming sooner or later. Let's make it sooner.

We must never "normalize" authoritarianism. In ways that would've been beyond belief a few years ago, Trump and his team, through outrageous lies and conspiracy theories, are undermining American democracy. They must not and will not succeed.

Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Trump, the most dangerous president ever, golfs and sends out bogus tweets in an outrageous and desperate attempt to overturn an election he lost by more than 6 million votes. Bye-bye, Trump. You will not destroy American democracy.

This is what Georgia's senate runoff elections mean: strong COVID relief, $15 minimum wage, expanded healthcare, tackling climate change, addressing systemic racism and immigration reform – and removing Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader. Let's do it.

In 2016, when Trump won MI, PA and WI by 77, 000 votes, it was part of his "landslide" victory.

In 2020, when Biden won MI, PA and WI by 255,000 votes, and won the popular vote by 6 million, it was "voter fraud." 

We will not allow Trump to destroy American democracy.

It is beyond pathetic for a sitting president to try to subvert the results of an election. It is even worse when the Republican Party, with few exceptions, remains silent over this outrageous attack on democracy. The GOP has ceased to be a political party. It is now a cult.

We must do everything possible to make me sure we become a vibrant democracy, and that means doing the exact opposite of what Trump and his authoritarian friends want to do.

Trump wants to destroy American democracy. We want to expand it.

We must put an end to:

– The electoral college.

– The disastrous Citizens United decision.

– Voter suppression.

– Outrageous gerrymandering.

Democracy means one person, one vote.

Taxpayers are subsidizing some of the wealthiest families and most profitable corporations in America. That is morally obscene and it's going to change. Workers need to earn a living wage.

This is what authoritarianism looks like:

Trump not conceding after losing.

Sen. Graham pressuring Secretaries of State to not count ballots.

Michigan GOP pushing to not certify state's election results.

Giuliani creating fiction.

Quoted @washingtonpost

If Congress doesn’t act, 12 million Americans could lose unemployment aid by the end of the year

If Congress doesn't act immediately, 12 million Americans will see all of their unemployment benefits expire the day after Christmas.

Meanwhile, the only thing GOP Senators are interested in is confirming right-wing judges and trying to delegitimize the election. Pathetic.

The major political conflict we face now is not over policy. It's about whether or not we remain a democracy. Frighteningly, many Republican officials are abandoning the rule of law to become part of the Trump authoritarian cult. We will fight back and win.

Today, the student debt crisis reached $1,771,499,332,612

If we can provide over $1 trillion in tax breaks to the top 1% and large corporations and $740 billion for the bloated Pentagon, please don't tell me that we cannot afford to cancel all student debt and make public colleges and trade schools tuition-free and debt-free for all.

Quoted @JStein_WaPo

Joe Biden today: "No government contracts will be given to companies that don't make their products here in America"

Joe Biden is absolutely right. Standing up for working families means making sure that government contracts are only given to companies that make products in the United States. No more corporate welfare to companies that throw American workers out on the street and move abroad.

I always find it amusing when our opponents talk about the “far-left” agenda.

The truth is our ideas are common sense ideas that the majority of the American people support.

Donald Trump will go down in history not just as a racist, sexist, xenophobe and religious bigot. He will be remembered as a demagogue who, more than anyone else, attempted to undermine the rule of law and destroy American democracy. He will not be missed.

Over 1,000 Americans are dying each day from the coronavirus. 40 million Americans face eviction. 92 million Americans are uninsured or under-insured. It's time for the Republicans to stop trying to delegitimize the election and work with us to pass a COVID-19 relief bill NOW!
