2012 brought an 800% increase in top TV show tweets.
Yep. From @brianbeutler: If Manchin truly thinks 10 Rs are gettable, "then he should prove it or be open to changing his mind. Insisting all legislation be bipartisan then leaving it to others to wrangle the votes is a way of just stalling out the agenda." https://t.co/ffUsaoKtnD
First Texas Republicans claimed their elimination of Sunday morning voting was a typo. Now they claim they have no idea how the provision allowing elections to be overturned got into the bill…after they defended it in debate. A bad combination of corruption and stupidity.
"This whole line of 'going to the border' is just a GOP talking point twisted into a question. Rs are obsessed with the US-Mexican border. But they’re not obsessed with creating a path to citizenship, nor are they obsessed with preventing people from taking the dangerous journey" https://t.co/wkdff7cMON
Chipotle’s CEO made $38 MILLION in 2020. A modest wage increase is not the reason that your burrito is a few cents more expensive; corporate greed is. I’ll say it again: no worker in America should make less than $15/hour. https://t.co/3U7ebOzzwn
Darnella Frazier helped spark a powerful movement for justice and change. She witnessed an injustice and took action to ensure the nation couldn’t ignore it. A well-deserved recognition. https://t.co/xLXPLp6MZx
“While Joe Manchin is demanding both parties agree on any further federal voting-rights legislation, a new study quantifies how completely Republicans have excluded Dems from the passage of the restrictive voting laws proliferating in red states” Exclusive https://t.co/kD2qcsZ9AE
In Texas, Republicans in the House and Senate passed voter suppression bills with no Dem support. They crafted bills behind closed doors. They limited amendments and debate. They refused media in the chamber. Tell me more about how protecting democracy should be “bipartisan.”
Astounding. Not only did Texas Republicans add a provision to SB7 allowing elections to be overturned—they vigorously defended it, and now claim they don’t know how it got into the bill. This anti-voting bill should never see the light of day again. https://t.co/CYiIBCAOBe
Reforming or ending the filibuster is not a “progressive idea.” There are moderates in the caucus other than Manchin and Sinema who are on-board. McConnell has messed with the filibuster more than anyone. Everything doesn’t have to be forced into a contrived intra-party fight.
Just three Republican votes (Collins, Murkowski, Graham) for Ketanji Brown Jackson, a possible successor to Breyer. It's pretty funny that anyone thinks a Republican-controlled Senate will ever confirm another Democratic president's Supreme Court nominee. https://t.co/iITfybxRdQ
I know they each have their own inflexible rationales, but the combination of Breyer not retiring, the filibuster prevailing over democracy reform, and 'bipartisan' negotiations stripping out core Democratic priorities all point to a failure to see clearly the danger to democracy
