And a CR to February 8 with current funding levels for border security (and everything else) was literally a McConnell proposal. It passed the Senate on voice vote. Now it’s a nonstarter? Ok.
No one can justify prohibiting the Centers for Disease Control from researching gun violence and how to reduce it. In fact they are not even trying to defend this indefensible federal law. Their strategy is to hope you don’t notice. Please notice.
So, wait...Republicans who take tens of thousands of dollars in NRA donations aren't POLITICIZING gun violence, but we are? What a great deal for the gun lobby if they can organize around elections but the anti gun violence movement can't. twitter.com/marcorubio/sta…
The idea behind net neutrality is that no corporation gets to block or slow websites you visit. Pay your provider and you get the whole Internet. The good news is that we now have 50 Senators to undo what the FCC did. We need just one more Senator to stand up for #NetNeutrality
@priaribi Congratulations on the newsletter! I've been writing a newsletter at thetrumpshaker.com for the past year that I recently put on hiatus. If you need more arms and legs, I would love to contribute!
HEY EVERYONE STILL ON TWITTER: TWEET HOUSE DEMOCRATS AND URGE THEM TO STAY STRONG #NoDreamNoDeal! Literally, they're milling around, they might be at the Capitol all night, they're checking their phones—this is a moment your tweets can make a genuinely huge difference.
Russia is a real threat to our democracy. Dreamers are anything but. Why is @POTUS willing to shutdown government to deport 700,000 young Americans but won’t even acknowledge a foreign adversary’s attack on us? #TrumpShutdown
POTUS said we “need a good shutdown.” The OMB Director finds it “cool” to be in charge of the shutdown. The son says it is “good for us.” Two bipartisan deals blown up by R’s in two weeks. Our requests to reopen govt for at least 24 hours blocked on floor. But, both sides!
Thread on an issue that should be occupying as much of our #resist energies as Trump, if not more. Because he'll eventually be gone but we will still be left with this legislation. twitter.com/aclu/status/95…
He drank the Kool Aid, asked for more Kool Aid, drank that, then went back into the kitchen where Trump's guys make the Kool Aid, told them to make the next batch stronger, drank that, and then headed over to twitter. twitter.com/LindseyGrahamS…
