Is #ABetterDeal a new album or a Greatest Hits compilation from the ERG?
It is indeed a Greatest Hits compilation -
There are always errors of fact - as per the below, which is false on both counts - and if you can't get the basics right should we be following the advice?

More later, perhaps

The American people are confronted with a #GOP Congress and Administration that are relentlessly ransacking the futures of American families and seniors, all to further enrich their lobbyist and special interest friends, big corporations and the wealthiest one percent. /1
From health care, to taxes, to good-paying jobs, to critical consumer protections, President Trump and the #Republican Congress are selling out the American people at every turn: /2 #ARawDeal #CultureOfCorruption #RepublicanGreed

As the walls close in around Trump and his culture of corruption is exposed, more people will try to distract you with lies.

They’ll shout desperately “look over there!” and argue that you should accept criminality because he’s “shaking things up.”

It’s utter nonsense. 1/
The truth is that Trump isn’t “sticking it to the elites,” he’s shoveling money into their pockets.

Big banks, pharmaceutical giants, CEOs, Wall Street firms, and the wealthiest 1% are making out like bandits under Trump. They couldn’t be happier. 2/
This is *intentional*

When Trump touts “tax cuts” and “deregulation,” he’s bragging about weakening protections for public health and economic safety to make rich people richer.

It comes with a price: high deficits. They want to pay for it with Medicaid and Medicare cuts. 3/

There's been so much corruption, waste, and incompetence in the Trump Administration lately that it's hard to keep track of it all.

Rather than do anything about it, the Republicans who control Congress cover it up or even indulge in corruption themselves.

Consider... <thread>
A Secretary of Commerce accuse of "grifting" millions of dollars from business partners.
A Secretary of Education who is avoiding taxes by registering her families $40 million yacht in the Cayman Islands, all while making it harder for American students to pay for a college education.

DEMOCRACY REFORM
#CultureOfCorruption #ABetterDeal

Powerful @CAPAction event today featuring @NancyPelosi in conversation with @CAPAction CEO @neeratanden.

Leader Pelosi is prioritizing democracy reforms in bold legislative package.
Followed by top notch panel with 3 key House reformers: @RepSarbanes @RepTerriSewell @RepJayapal, moderated by @CAPAction EVP @WStachelberg.
They each discussed power of anti-corruption, pro-voter solutions.
Demand change!
Here is my new publication about how a committee contributions ban can help stop the huge power of special interest big money in politics.
ANTI-CORRUPTION SOLUTIONS do exist. You just need to demand them of lawmakers.

This week, House and Senate Democrats are unveiling two bold, ambitious, new planks of our A Better Deal agenda: A Better Deal for Our Teachers and Students, and A Better Deal for Our Democracy.1 #ABetterDeal #BlueWave2018 #DemPartyPlatform
Education is the catalyst for economic mobility, and the engine of progress in our nation. Yet, America’s teachers are underpaid, our schools are underfunded and our children are too often denied the good, public education they need to succeed. 2 #ABetterDeal #Education
Today, teacher’s wages are a full 17 percent lower than comparable workers – forcing nearly one in every five full-time teachers to work a second job to make ends meet. 3 #ABetterDeal #Education #Teachers #DemsWork4USA

1) SECOND ROASTING OF THE DAY!!!!!!!!

Let's rock this punks and punkettes.
2) "Too many Americans feel that Washington is hopelessly out of touch with their priorities." You're right, felt that way for the entire 8 years of the Obama presidency, thanks for finally noticing! Oh, no, you don't get the House back.
3) "President Trump promised to fight for the forgotten American, yet Republican-controlled Washington continues business as usual, rewarding the wealthy, privileged and well-connected at the expense of middle class and working families." I got a raise AND a tax break in January.

THREAD: The new tax law is a raw deal for the middle class. 83% of the benefits go to the 1%, and it blows a $1.5 trillion hole in the deficit. But don't just take my word for it, here's 42 examples of how the #TaxScam hurts working families as well as a vision for #ABetterDeal:
A plurality—42%–think the tax cuts favor the wealthy most of all. Only 29.6% say they favor the working and middle class. finance.yahoo.com/news/trump-tax…

#GOPTaxScam Puts Medicare and Medicaid on the Chopping Block to Give a Tax Break to the One Percent 1
#RESIST #ProtectOurCare
Americans across the country can’t be fooled: the debt-exploding GOP tax scam puts Medicare and Medicaid on the chopping block and ultimately raises taxes on 86 million middle class American families: 2 #GOPTaxScam #Medicaid #Medicare #ProtectOurCare
#GOPTaxScam Raises Taxes on 86 Million Middle Class Families – the GOP tax scam’s meager, temporary benefits for the middle class evaporate in a few years, and the scam ultimately raises taxes on 86 million middle class families. 3 #GOPlies #VoteThemOut

Democrats are simply asking for action on the broad set of bipartisan priorities before the Congress:/1 #ABetterDeal #DemPartyPlatform #Democrats #DemForce #DemPriorities
Keep government open: While Republicans control the House and the Senate, and President Trump said earlier this year that ‘our country needs a good shutdown,’ Democrats want to keep government open./2

Raise the caps: Democrats want a strong national defense. We also need an equal increase in our domestic budget, which includes critical national security functions and commitments to hard working families. #ABetterDeal #DemPriorities #DemsWork4USA

Until we see what the @SenateGOP’s midnight rewrite looks like, let’s go over what we know the #GOPTaxScam does so far: [thread]
In my home state of New York and across the US, Americans will feel the repeal of the state and local deduction (SALT) which currently prevents double taxation.
The #GOPTaxBill opens up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge -America’s most pristine wilderness- to drilling, a move opposed by most Americans and by tribal leaders. nativenewsonline.net/currents/tribe…
