College costs have skyrocketed while incomes have remained nearly stagnant. It’s no wonder how we’ve reached this point.
The student debt crisis is preventing millions from having savings, owning a home, starting a business and more. It’s long past time for comprehensive relief.
This is an outstanding vision, @billpeduto, @YtownTitoBrown, @nanwhaley, @MayorGinther, @JohnCranley, @HuntingtonMayor, Ron Dulaney Jr., and @louisvillemayor. This should be a top priority in the first 100 days.
The brilliant framing in this piece is that it is deindustrialization & an unfettered market that is costing jobs, not government policy. The government is part of the solution to diversify the economy & create regional jobs. We should be crushing Republicans on a jobs message.
The messages from friends and colleagues that I’ve received over the past 15 hours have been humbling.
Honored to announce, officially, that I have been nominated to serve as Secretary of State. If confirmed, this is a mission I will take on with my full heart.
.@ABlinken is an honorable and thoughtful public servant who was helpful during our work to end the war in Yemen. He has always been open to engaging progressives. I look forward to working with him to bring an end to the worst humanitarian catastrophe in modern times.
My mother taught me to lead with the power of kindness and compassion to make the world a better place. I’ve carried that lesson with me throughout my career in Foreign Service – and, if confirmed, will do the same as Ambassador to the United Nations.
.@LindaT_G is an inspired choice. It is refreshing to see the post go to a dedicated foreign service officer as opposed to someone simply with political connections, big money behind them, or celebrity. She will represent us in a way that makes me proud of our nation.
This is a good choice. Tony has the strong confidence of the president-elect and the knowledge and experience for the important work of rebuilding US diplomacy.
It will also be a new and great thing to have a top diplomat who has regularly engaged with progressive grassroots.
Flournoy supported the war in Iraq & Libya, criticized Obama on Syria, and helped craft the surge in Afghanistan. I want to support the President’s picks. But will Flournoy now commit to a full withdrawal from Afghanistan & a ban on arms sales to the Saudis to end the Yemen war?
15 to 16 million of America’s most vulnerable children are missing vital parts of their education right now because they don’t have adequate internet access. They deserve so much better from us. Broadband for all isn’t just policy, it’s an urgent humanitarian need.
