Hello & Happy Spring! (Thread) If you haven’t been on here til 1am EST, I’m going to unpack recently announced #opioid bill S-724 (named for John McCain). For reax check out threads by @erinbiba and @AnaMardoll (call @gillibrandNY ASAP to protest bill.) Onto the breakdown:
Sen. Gillibrand introduced this bill with a flip referral to dental work and a misunderstanding of the term “acute pain”. #AcutePain does not mean ‘severe’ in medical terms, it means pain lasting up to/less than 6mos. If you’ve ever had a gunshot wound,
been in/had a serious accident, needed extensive surgery, had #fibromyalgia #arthritis #endometriosis or #pelvicpain #backpain -just to name a few-you may know that sometimes one needs more than 7 days of pain meds.

So in my city #SSI pays $771 a month.
I was just informed that I don't qualify because although I make below the poverty level in annual income, that income makes me ineligible.

The SSI person was very nice as I coughed through our conversation, but it's over.
#CripTheVote
How is anyone supposed to live on this amount of money in a big city? It's beyond belief. Who sets these income levels? Where are #disabled people supposed to live? How are they supposed pay for a phone? Even a burner costs $25 a month. What about utilities?
The insanity is, I just qualified for #SNAP because I live below the poverty level, but that "entitlement" as the #SSI person explained, counts against your income limit. The woman was very nice & commiserative, but she closed out my file. My application for #Medicaid is pending.

This is a hit piece because Gillibrand's progressive stances terrorize the GOP, but there's some great details about her hard work, her dedication to public service, her leap left.

Twenty Things You Probably Didn’t Know about #KirstenGillibrand nationalreview.com/2019/02/twenty…
Gillibrand's finances and her husband's (he makes under $20k) are detailed. Their house cost $335k. Not wealthy NYers.
Her evolution on guns and immigration is a story of listening to others: she went from A to F in a year with the @NRA.
#Gillibrand admits she didn't know any immigrants and her district was 98% white. Now she tries to stop deportations in NY, something I learned from sources, but which Gillibrand does not use for photo ops. A complete 180° when she joined the Senate.

Inexplicably there are still folks in my mentions more than a year later claiming that only #Gillibrand called for Franken to resign when 32 Democratic senators + Bernie Sanders did so.
Franken could have stayed and faced hearings.
He didn't.
What #Harris said was most succinct.
Minority Whip Patty Murray was most damning in her thread:
My own Dem senator, Bob Casey, made the important point that Democratic men had to be held to the same standard as GOP men.

Wow. If you're still stanning for this guy, you are working for the other side. Racist, sexist, homophobic and just plain AWFUL.

Bernie: 'My Opponents' Want Black, White, Gay, Latino or Women Candidates 'Regardless of What They Stand For' mediaite.com/online/bernie-…
Why is Bernie slamming Democrats AGAIN and ignoring the wave of women and POC that gave us back the House?
#Gillibrand and #Warren both have more progressive voting records than Sanders. #Harris created the cash bail work he takes credit for. AND they are all running.

Awful.
Remember when Bernie said it this?

Bernie Sanders drew a swift backlash after saying white voters who are "uncomfortable" voting for a black candidate are "not necessarily racist." huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-s…?

Been on deadline all morning and just came on here to find this scurrilous misogynist garbage from Politico on #Gillibrand, the senator with the current most progressive ranking in the Senate.

Thanks to @rtraister for calling this what it is: blaming women for men's actions.
The obsessive and dangerous sexism that pervades our politics is the fundamental reason @HillaryClinton isn't president--Russia, Comey and Sanders aside.
As a nation we always center mediocre men over accomplished women. Witness Schumer being re-elected after abject failure.
Meanwhile, Pelosi faces a cadre of right-leaning white men who want to challenge not just her, but the very message of the midterms, which was to give her a win, refute the GOP attack on her and center women & POC over white male candidates/incumbents.
