Republican Senate / Tech / China Virus

Our Republican Senate just missed the opportunity to get rid of Section 230, which gives unlimited power to Big Tech companies. Pathetic!!! Now they want to give people ravaged by the China Virus $600, rather than the $2000 which they so desperately need. Not fair, or smart!

I don’t want to live in an America where billionaires who pay nothing in income taxes rocket out into space, but middle-class families are thrown out of their homes.

It’s a disgrace that the eviction moratorium is about to expire. Rent is due tomorrow. In case anyone forgot, we've been going through a deadly pandemic that caused an economic crisis. We can’t allow families to be thrown out on the street. Congress and the White House must act.

In March, @SenatorMenendez  and I put a provision in the COVID relief bill to make any student loan forgiveness tax-free. I'm glad this policy is helping HBCU borrowers, and I hope it will help a lot more students soon when the President takes action to #CancelStudentDebt  .

People become refugees not by choice, but forced by circumstances. Resettlement in another country is a life-saving option available for only the most vulnerable among them. More from @Refugees :

Read Saturday WSJ “on censorshipBIG TECH has no both ways” “They achieved this dominance w substantial government privileges, including privileges they sought for serving as a conduit for information. So they can be regulated as common carriers,,,,”

While we’re fortunate to have an eviction moratorium bridge in place in Washington state, a national eviction crisis would put an unprecedented strain on the entire country and upend countless lives—at a time when the Delta variant is surging.

We need to extend the eviction moratorium—it's a matter of public health as well as a looming economic crisis, and the GOP should be working with us to do it. As we seek legislative solutions, I urge the admin & state & local gov'ts to explore all options to keep people housed.

Went to BRICK FAIR with my 11 year old in Virginia today — some very cool and creative stuff here.

Refugees are healthcare workers Refugees are community leaders Refugees are students Refugees are teachers Refugees are athletes... Being a refugee is only a status. Our High Profile Supporter@Rosenathike  shares an important reminder.
