TOMORROW: The corporate media has done a pretty poor job covering the reconciliation legislation, which has left a lot of working people asking, 'What's in the damn bill?' Join me, @Ocasi @RevDrBarbero @MaryKayHenry01 @VarshPrakash8, , @alaw202  , and tomorrow for a panel discussion.

John Deere's profits have exploded by some 67%, but workers who spent years with the company are now being forced off their insurance. That is beyond outrageous. John Deere is a hugely profitable company, and workers must be allowed to keep their health care during the strike.

TONIGHT: Polls show a majority of the American people support the policies in our reconciliation bill, but too many don't know they're actually in the bill! Tonight, @Ocasi @RevDrBarbero @MaryKayHenry01 @VarshPrakash8, , @alaw202  , and join me to discuss. I hope you'll join us.

I find it absurd that while billionaires in this country have gotten 70% richer since the start of the pandemic, working families are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to afford their prescriptions, struggling to afford childcare. We must invest in the working class.

"[Corporate lobbyists] want YOU to give up before the deal is done, because it's way easier for them to try to get away with the things that they're lobbying for and against if people at home aren't watching." - @Ocasio2018  on the need to stay engaged in the fight for this bill

"The truly radical thing to do on climate would be to do nothing." - @VarshPrakash 

I want you all to take a guess. How many lobbyists do you think the pharmaceutical industry has up on Capitol Hill for the 535 members of Congress? Ready for the answer? OVER 1,500. You want to know why we pay the highest prices on the planet for prescriptions? Start there.

The average billionaire in America today has a lower tax rate than the average worker. Does that seem acceptable to you?

Does it make any sense to you at all? If you are a diabetic living in England, you're able to get a vial of insulin for around $7. But if you're a diabetic here in the United States, you pay $98 for the EXACT SAME insulin? How crazy is that? We must end the greed of Big Pharma.

JOIN OUR PANEL: We are proposing historic legislation which says you know what? Maybe we should finally invest in the needs of working people. Join us for a special rebroadcast of our panel discussion, 'What's In The Damn Bill?.'

In 2016, when Trump won PA, MI, and WI by a handful of votes, the election system worked just great. Now that he's losing, it's a "fraud" and they're "stealing the election." This is how demagogues destroy faith in democracy and move us toward authoritarianism. Count every vote!

Trump just had peaceful demonstrators viciously attacked. No, Mr. President. This is not a dictatorship. This is the United States of America. Our citizens have a constitutional right to peacefully protest. It's called the First Amendment.

I am once again asking you to wear a mask.

Some people ask: Why would you impeach and convict a president who has only a few days left in office? The answer: Precedent. It must be made clear that no president, now or in the future, can lead an insurrection against the U.S. government.

It means you’re going to lose.

Let us go forward together. The struggle continues.

Once a vaccine for coronavirus is developed, it should be free.
