1. This piece by @davidsiders demonstrates a staggering lack of self-awareness by journalists that has become an all-too common and harmful theme in the Trump era.

‘The race for governor has turned into a scam’ - POLITICO apple.news/AnxQ-3pgbQ1mbL…
2. The press salivates over every new scandal coming out of the WH. DT’s abnormalities and authoritarian threats dominate #MSM outlets. Breadcrumbs from the Mueller investigation are turned inside and out. Quite simply, DT dominates the press. He likes it that way.
3. In the 2016 election cycle, the press began to engage in a practice that played no small role in the rise of Trump - an inconsistent and hypocritical style of coverage that helped mold the electorate into views steeped in false-equivalency.

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

#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

1. Well, @matt_latimer, I can tell you I'm sick and tired of the statement that #Democrats don't stand for anything but being anti-Trump. As if we just poofed into existence during the 2016 election. As if it's just the man and not the policies we oppose. politico.com/magazine/story…
2. Why are we against policies that favor the wealthy and disenfranchise the poor? Why are we against immigration bans, walls, taking away healthcare, gutting safety-nets, civil and environmental protections? We oppose these policies because they are against what we stand for.
3. As Democrats we strive for economic parity, closing the wealth gap, providing equal opportunities for education and work. We believe in protecting the rights of all citizens and fighting to end injustice. We do, indeed, have a message and policies to support it.
