The good news is the COVID bill expands the earned income tax credit and almost doubles the child tax credit -- providing needed help to poor families, especially of color. It will cut child poverty in half while also helping parents pay for childcare. The bad news: Joe Manchin.

In just 42 days: US Chamber of Commerce 1/12/21: lawmakers who did not demonstrate respect for democracy will no longer receive financial support. 4/5/21: We do not believe it appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification.

A humble suggestion for Democrats who finally control the Senate: Stop negotiating with yourselves.

We're in one of those rare periods when Democrats control the presidency, House, and Senate. So there's no reason to compromise on a $15 minimum wage, or $1400 survival checks, or abolishing the filibuster. Why are we negotiating with ourselves?

The 42 senators that voted to increase the min wage still represent more people than the 58 that didn't. What a ridiculous and archaic institution

Quoted @SenTinaSmith

The Senate needs to abolish the filibuster. It’s undemocratic. I’ve spent a long time thinking about this and I hope you read my thoughts: https://t.co/uSObEqLAZS

Good for @SenTinaSmith who, along @SenAmyKlobuchar, @jontester and other moderates are joining their progressive colleagues to #EndTheFilibuster. https://t.co/WwZT95GVU4

Democrats spent years in the wilderness as Republicans controlled the Senate and stuck together. Now Democrats control the Senate but won't stick together.

The average minimum wage worker would need to work a staggering 79 hours a week to afford a one-bedroom rental in 95 percent of U.S. counties...in the richest country on Earth. If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

There is no reason U.S. billionaires should hold $4,300,000,000,000 in wealth while food lines stretch for miles and millions are on the brink of eviction. Tax the rich.

If wages had kept pace with productivity gains over the last 70 years, the current minimum wage would be more than $22 an hour.

$15 an hour is the floor, not the ceiling, of what working Americans deserve. https://t.co/oTbnLPwvEn

Forgive me, but I refuse to tolerate a system in which minimum wage workers can’t afford rent in a single U.S. state but Jeff Bezos can afford to build 25 bathrooms in his DC mansion.

There is nowhere — I repeat, NOWHERE — in the United States where a full-time worker being paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 can make ends meet. That is a disgrace. It is far past time that we raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and give millions of workers a raise.
