In the last week, the President has pardoned fraudsters who’ve stolen hundreds of millions of dollars from taxpayers and investors ... and proposed $2 trillion in budget cuts from essential gov’t programs. This isn’t fiscal responsibility; it’s theft.
The Chair of the Federal Reserve is the top official responsible for our country's economic well-being. Partying with the ultra-wealthy creates the appearance that those billionaires have an unfair opportunity to weigh in on economic policy decisions.
Some Californians have received "2020 Congressional District Census" questionnaires—but they were actually RNC mailers. Ploys like this increase confusion and distrust, when the census already struggles against disinformation. I called on the Census Director to do something.
