The $1.3 trillion wealth gain by America's 660 billionaires since the pandemic began could pay for a stimulus check of $3,900 for every one of the 331 million people in the US. And the billionaires would be as rich as they were before the pandemic. Tax the billionaires.

It took only two years to go from disappearing Milo and Alex Jones to banning content said to "amplify narratives that undermine faith in NATO." Imagine where the line will be two years from now. Censorship is an intoxicating power that endlessly expands until it's smashed.

Q: Do you believe former President Trump should speaking at CPAC? @GOPLeader : "Yes he should." @Rep_LizCheney : "That's up to CPAC....I don't believe that he should be playing a role in the future of the party or the country." McCarthy: "On that high note, thank you very much."

If a Republican tried to nominate a trial lawyer like Xavier Becerra to lead HHS in the midst of a global pandemic, they would be laughed out of the room.

Should trump speak at cpac? — @GOPLeader : yes he should — @Liz_Cheney : it’s up to cpac but he should have no role in our party or our country. McCarthy then said: “on that high note,” we’ll end the press conference.

Scoops of the Day

If Congress passes the For the People Act, every president would be required to disclose their tax returns. Let’s pass it, and never allow such an abuse of transparency again.

Senate Republicans argue that we don’t need to deliver more COVID relief—that we did enough already. That couldn't be further from the truth. The worst thing we could do would be to slow down now before the race is won. We will deliver urgent, bold COVID relief.

Sending my prayers to @TigerWoods and his family tonight—here’s to a speedy recovery for the GOAT of golf. If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s to never count Tiger out.

Just because you’re a senator doesn’t mean you should get a free pass on lying.

This evening, I joined my colleagues on the steps of the Capitol for a moment of silence to mourn the 500,000+ American lives we lost to COVID-19. May they rest in peace.

Scoops of the Week

Leaving for Assam and West Bengal to inaugurate various projects. They will add momentum to India’s development journey.

The next time you hear Republicans in Congress accuse AOC of being divisive, please remind them that she used her platform to raise more than $3M for a red state.

If you let your constituents freeze to death, you’re not pro-life.

During the Obama-Biden administration we saw the Department of Justice politicized and weaponized. I hope we won’t see that repeated if Merrick Garland is confirmed.

Republicans now pushing a "work requirement" for child tax credit for poor families. Funny, when they slashed the inheritance tax, I don't remember talk of a "work requirement" for billionaires' kids.

Today’s win across Gujarat is very special. For a party that is serving in a state for over two decades to record such a phenomenal win is noteworthy. It is heartening to see widespread support from all sections of society, particularly the youth of Gujarat towards BJP.

The pain beats within our hearts, and all across this nation. We remember, we mourn, we pause, we reflect, and we vow to build a more just, safer, and more equitable America. “Through many dangers, toils and snares // We have already come...”
