A strong majority of Americans favor Democratic voting reforms being pushed in Congress and state legislatures, according to a new survey

This #EarthDay  I'm grateful to have a @PresElectBiden  in the White House who believes in science over fiction, and a Democratic Congress ready to take real action to take on the crisis facing our planet. The time is now for bold action towards a greener and more just future.

Washington, D.C. residents pay federal taxes, serve on juries, and serve our country, yet they are barred from having a vote in Congress. The US is the only democratic country in the world that denies full democratic rights to citizens because they live in the nation’s capital.

The House has passed a bill that would make Washington, D.C., the 51st state. Republicans are staunchly opposed to granting D.C. statehood, fearing that the Democratic-leaning area would give Democrats more votes in Congress.

White House back DC statehood. "For far too long, the more than 700,000 people of Washington, D.C. have been deprived of full representation in the U.S. Congress. This taxation without representation and denial of self-governance is an affront to the democratic values."

The Democratic-controlled Congress will soon try to transform part of the District of Columbia, which today is about one-eighteenth the size of Rhode Island but 18.9 percent larger than Denver International Airport, into a state.

@BlockerRyan  They are *such* weirdos Elected officials in their header images, with the inability to imagine any political goal more audacious than Democratic control of Congress

Congress has a choice. It can continue to exclude DC residents from the democratic process, forcing them to watch from the sidelines as Congress votes on federal and #DC  laws, and to treat them, in the words of Frederick Douglass, as “aliens, not citizens, but subjects.”

"For far too long, the more than 700,000 people of DC have been deprived of full representation in the U.S. Congress. This taxation without representation & denial of self- governance is an affront to the democratic values on which our Nation was founded."

NEWS: The *new* evidence being shown by Democratic House Impeachment Managers today is previously unseen security camera footage shot from inside the Capitol. A Dem source says that the video will show "just how close Trump's mob came to senators, members of Congress and staff."

1. @Microsoft  is one of the largest contributors to the members of Congress who tried to subvert the Democratic process Microsoft has made NO COMMITMENTS to stop funding this group At a company meeting on Thursday, Prez Brad Smith explained why. And it's pretty appalling

If Biden is president & we have a Democratic Congress we will: - ⬆️the minimum wage to $15/hr - ⬇️the Medicare age to 60 - Create millions of jobs rebuilding America - Make public colleges tuition-free for working families - Enact 12 weeks of paid family leave - Adopt equal pay

...and now to stand up for those ideals, we have to move forward and elect @JoeBiden  and a Democratic Congress that does its job, protects DREAMers, and finally creates a system that’s truly worthy of this nation of immigrants once and for all.

Unlike the Democratic Congresswomen@realDonaldTrump  attacked today, I actually am a foreign-born Member of Congress. But I’m a white male of European descent, so there’s no chance he’ll attack me. His tantrum has nothing to do with birthplace.

We now have the “Blackmail AmericansDemocratic Congress for President Trump to run against in the fall. The American people-frightened by an unknown virus, worried about their jobs, paychecks and savings, concerned for their children and their country must be appalled by Pelosi

The Democrats in Congress do not believe in the rule of law. They are trying to discredit the democratic process by removing a duly-elected President, without any basis for impeachment.

We will be opening the new Congress in the transparent & open way we promised. Lowering prescription drug prices, raising wages, & fighting corruption in Washington will be at the heart of our efforts in the Democratic House. #ForThePeople 

President Trump seems not to understand that the female jobs he created were Democratic women in Congress.

The latest from Hillary Clinton is that America can’t have civility in politics until the Democratic Party takes back power in Congress. Another interesting statement from a woman who has never understood her own country.
