Breaking Scoops

Republicans just voted to drive the United States into default. Now let's see how many news accounts convey this basic fact clearly and without any jargon or obfuscation. When very few do, you'll understand why Republicans believe they can get away with this in the first place.

Cassidy and Kennedy vote against bill to keep government open and raise debt ceiling. Bill includes disaster aid for their home states. Murkowski and Collins also NO votes. Appears to be straight party lines amid clash with Dems over debt ceiling

People of color accounted for 95% of Texas' population growth over the last decade. Yet in the proposed congressional map, Black and Hispanic Texans would have fewer districts where they make up the majority than they currently do.

The same Republicans crowing about the debt and deficit voted for $2.3 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. Their hypocrisy is staggering.

At #UNGA76 , @SecBlinken  emphasized that it makes a difference when the U.S. shows up, listens, leads. It gives us a unique platform to bring others together in tackling the challenges of our time, as we deliver for the American people.

A bill to keep the government open, avoid default, & provide relief to so many could be on its way to @PresElectBiden’s desk now. Instead, Senate Rs blocked it w/ no regard for what default & shutdown would mean for people’s lives & bank accounts. This isn’t a game for anyone but the GOP.

As the government wrestles with a national debt that's hitting its legal limit, GOP leader @SenRickScott  said it's up to Democrats to solve this, because they alone are responsible for the spending and debt growth. Republicans had a big hand in it, too.

President Biden just answered questions all the way through getting his Pfizer booster shot.

The Biden agenda: lower costs, historic middle class tax cuts, millions of green good-paying jobs for the American people and much more to #BuildBackBetter  – and paid for by making sure the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share.

I have noticed that many who troll on Twitter use “your” instead of “you’re.” Just an observation. Nothing more.

Do you know how much CEO pay has skyrocketed since 1978? 100%? 500%? Try 1,322% This is unsustainable.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it is evil to make it deliberately hard for people to vote.

While inspecting the ongoing work relating to the new Parliament building, PM @narendramodi  interacted with the workers engaged at the site and asked about their well-being. He said that they are engaged in a pious and historic work.

Scoops of the Week

News: The 1/6 select committee just dropped subpoenas on Mark Meadows, Steve Bannon, Dan Scavino, and Kashyap Patel, a senior Defense official. All were apparently either with Trump on 1/6, or talked to him in the runup to it, or helped plan the effort to overturn the election:

Glad to have met @Sen @KamalaHarrisKamalaHarris . Her feat has inspired the entire world. We talked about multiple subjects that will further cement the India-USA friendship, which is based on shared values and cultural linkages.

I invite the world- Come, Make Vaccines in India!

One of the problems with how politics is covered is  many have forgotten that the purpose of politics is policy, as in solving problems. It's not about scoring points in a game of inside baseball. To cover it as such undermines the health and safety of our nation and the planet.

Grateful to the Indian community in Washington DC for the warm welcome. Our diaspora is our strength. It is commendable how the Indian diaspora has distinguished itself across the world.
