Amy Klobuchar told me her committee plans to take up S. 1 in early May When asked if she's willing to break it up: "We are always open to ideas for changes and we've been working with secretaries of states. We'll have a managers amendment..but we're keeping the bill together"

For @TheAtlantic, I wrote about how we’re facing a doom loop of minority rule by white conservatives and the next two years may be our last chance to avoid slipping into it forever. Our leaders must treat this as the crisis that it is and act with urgency. https://t.co/yryxbjNWLR https://t.co/WkOPEOc7Wz

That part about "entrenching their power beyond the reach of voters"? That was stacking the courts with unqualified conservative extremists ready to advance what lawmakers couldn't accomplish in the legislature: https://t.co/elYX01ykGo

This @AdamSerwer piece doesn’t mince words—what state legislatures are doing to trans kids is deliberate cruelty, weaponized for political gain: https://t.co/kgoXxC2NLC

Not only did McConnell call Trump a “dumb son of a bitch.” But Trump also has said he’s going to work to defeat incumbent Republican senators. And @NRSC Chair @SenRickScott still gave him an award.

Mitch McConnell says the filibuster is ‘the essence of the Senate.’ Other Republicans say it’s how the framers envisioned the Senate and that it has a noble place in governing. That’s all BS, says @AJentleson https://t.co/qRq0wKldk5

If you know anyone who still thinks the #FILIBUSTER makes sense in a democratic system, ask them to listen to this short talk by @AJentleson https://t.co/wDkD4EY1Gd

Expired license plates. Air freshener hanging from the mirror. A counterfeit $20 bill. I am so tired of the excuses they come up with to murder Black people in America. #DaunteWright should be alive right now.

I was pepper sprayed in the eye while photographing the scene at the Brooklyn Center Police Department. I had cameras & my press credentials clearly in view. It came from the side w/o warning I was shooting so I didn’t even see it coming. This is a GoPro version of the incident. https://t.co/TIhzsnG1Ri

Quoted @JDVance1

At this very moment there are companies (big and small) paying good wages to American workers, investing in their communities, and making it easier for American families. Cut their taxes. No more subsidies to the anti-American business class.

Conservatives have always believed the government should use economic policy to pick winners and losers. https://t.co/QhpZzlqLOo

Police killings of Black men are so routine that people just accept them as inevitable, struggle to imagine a world without them. Fuck. That. This may be routine, but it’s NOT normal. We can and must un-create this mess. In our lifetimes. Stay horrified, stay angry.

Quoted @igorbobic

Wicker tells reporters he told Biden it would be “an almost impossible sell” to get a bipartisan agreement on infrastructure that repeals parts of GOP’s 2017 tax cuts. He says 21 percent rate on corps should stay where it is.

So if raising corporate taxes is off the table, and raising the gas tax is off the table, and deficit spending is off the table... https://t.co/ohi8b0XcRz

Quoted @baseballcrank

If you think pure majoritarianism is paramount, as @jonathanchait seems to imply we should, ask yourself how popular Jim Crow laws were in states with white supermajorities of the population.

During Jim Crow, civil rights bills had majority support in the House & Senate, and 60% pubic support. Anti-lynching bills had majority support in the South. The filibuster killed them. Back then, *only* civil rights bills were regularly forced to clear a supermajority threshold. https://t.co/XwOaqhHjwQ
