68 percent of Americans want Biden’s COVID relief bill, but not a single House Republican voted for it this morning. It passed 219 to 212. Which party represents America?

@SenTedCruz  mocks @Ocasio2018  at today’s CPAC for saying she was almost murdered during the insurrection. This from the man who went to Cancun to escape his state's deep freeze while she raised $5 million for Texans suffering from the storm.

Today, after 510,000 deaths from COVID, 0 House Republicans voted for COVID relief. On January 6, with no evidence of electoral fraud and after domestic terrorists attacked the Capitol, 139 House Republicans voted to overturn the 2020 election. What more do you need to know?

So let me get this straight: essential workers are essential to keeping the economy going, but it's not essential to pay them a living wage?

It’s not Left versus Right, Democrat versus Republican. It’s about democracy versus authoritarianism.

America's 660 billionaires could give everybody in the country a $3,900 survival check and still be as rich as they were before the pandemic. If that doesn’t convince you we need a wealth tax, I don’t know what will.

Imagine if senators were paid the minimum wage. Do you think they’d defer to the parliamentarian?

Nicolas Sarkozy gets a jail sentence for corruption. Are we going to let the French show us up?


Your reminder that tear gas is a chemical weapon banned in war.

Republicans who say we can't impeach a president 10 days before an inauguration had no trouble confirming a Supreme Court justice 8 days before an election.

RT if you want to see Congress pass legislation prohibiting the use of tear gas in the U.S.

If Redditors rallying GameStop is unacceptable market manipulation, what would you call it when greedy Wall Street bankers gambled away our entire economy in 2008 and faced no consequences?

Those now saying Twitter's ban violates free speech didn't object when the NFL fired Colin Kaepernick.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but refusing to disclose the corporations receiving $500,000,000,000 in taxpayer-funded bailouts is just about as corrupt as it gets.

Call me old-fashioned but I don't think a president who incites a coup against the U.S. government deserves a $200,000 pension for the rest of his life, along with a million-dollar travel budget, all financed by U.S. taxpayers. Just sayin.

We have a literal yacht tax deduction in this country, and our politicians have the nerve to call a survival check a handout.

So let me get this straight: Republicans in Congress wanted to impeach Obama for passing the Affordable Care Act, but they don't want to impeach Trump for inciting an insurrection?
