76% of Americans, including 60% of Republicans, support Biden’s covid bill but 0 House Republicans voted for it. A perfect illustration of American politics right now
To Congressional Republicans, conspiracy theories are more important than the American people. Last night, they voted against providing aid for vaccines, schools, families and children. Whose interests are they serving?
This morning, @POTUS called to thank us for passing the American Rescue Plan. With great gratitude, I congratulate our dazzling Chairs, Members & staff for their masterful, timely & values-based leadership in bringing us to this moment for the American people.
Late last night, @HouseDemocrats passed the American Rescue Plan, taking a momentous step to ensure that Help Is On The Way. This package will be transformative: lifting 12M out of poverty, generating $1.25 for every $1 spent, & cut child poverty in half.
This heinous event is an affront to the rule of law & basic human rights. We must re-evaluate our relationship with Saudi Arabia. We stand w/ @POTUS in promoting transparency & supporting partnerships that advance our security, uphold our values & protect our interests.
If every single thing in Democrats’ $1.9 trillion dollar blowout is important to “COVID relief,” Speaker Pelosi should allow an up-or-down vote on each item separately.
RT if you agree.
While you’re busy mocking Americans’ urgent need for COVID relief, Republican mayors across the country are imploring you to support the American Rescue Plan.
James Baldwin was a novelist, playwright & poet who navigated sexuality, race & class during the civil rights and gay liberation movements in the mid-20th century. His advocacy & literature help guide our fight for a more just society. #BlackHistoryMonth
Today @HouseDemocrats are voting on a package of bills that includes my #KeepItGrand effort to ban new mining around @GrandCanyonNPS.
These bills fight the #ClimateCrisis and protect 1.5 million acres of #PublicLands. Americans want to #KeepItWild for future generations.
The Senate parliamentarian’s ruling is disappointing; raising the minimum wage would give 27M+ Americans a raise during this devastating economic crisis. House Dems are determined to #FightFor15. This policy will remain in H.R. 1319 and pass tomorrow.
