Today was a disaster for Trump as the Supreme Ct. gave him a huge loss on his tax returns & financial records. Setting the stage for us to find out why #AllRoadsLeadToPutin with him.

Speaker Pelosi's reaction, below! But first, a word for our "ill-informed" Sec. of Education.🔥
SCOTUS handed Trump one of his worst days ever – rejecting his ridiculous stance that he's basically a king.

Both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh joined the 7-2 decision preserving our #ChecksAndBalances and affirming what Madam Speaker has always said: #NoOneIsAboveTheLaw.
The Supreme Court gave Congress (and NY prosecutors) a path to get Trump's records. Madam Speaker made it crystal clear that the House intends to pursue that path.

Unlike Senate GOP, House Dems take their oversight responsibility seriously. #NoOneIsAboveTheLaw

Speaker Pelosi took a blowtorch to the ridiculous assertion by the Trump WH that Trump wasn't briefed orally about Russia putting a hit on our troops in Afghanistan because our intelligence agencies didn't have 100% confirmation.

More 🔥🔥🔥 from #MadamSpeaker's presser below!
Nearly a week since we learned that Russia put a bounty on the head of our troops in Afghanistan, Trump still has had nothing to say to Putin about the spilled American blood on his hands.

So on top of everything else, Trump is also a failed Commander-in-Chief.
With 25 years of experience in intelligence, Speaker Pelosi knows exactly how this kind of actionable information usually comes across when there is a President and Commander-in-Chief who is not invested in letting Putin get away with murder.

Our new commentary: The New Surge Renders Thursday’s June Jobs Numbers Meaningless, Almost Ensures Federal Relief in July #muniland…
The June change in #nonfarmpayrolls and the new #unemploymentrate are meaningless. The new surge in infection and resultant policy adjustments are going to weigh heavily on near-term economic results. July numbers will be a better indicator. #muniland
#COVID19 infections are surging. For the week of June 18, the number of weekly confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. set a record: 218,248. It is possible we see over 250,000 confirmed cases for the week of June 25. #muniland

You don't just pay your rent once, it's due every month. That’s why we need monthly, recurring payments throughout the entirety of this pandemic and beyond, says @SenKamalaHarris on @theappeal. (1/5) Image
.@AndrewYang pays gratitude to those involved in the movement for a #basicincome, which has laid the groundwork for the overwhelming support for monthly cash payments we have now. (2/5) Image
Despite this support, there is no mention of automatic stablizers in the #HEROESAct. @EconomicSecProj Co-chair @nataliefoster explains why payments tied to our financial reality ensure that our economy works for all communities, not just those at the top. (3/5)

After six months and nearly 100,000 lives lost, the Trump Administration still does not have a serious plan for increasing testing to stop the spread of the virus.
The Administration’s disappointing report confirms that President Trump’s national testing strategy is to deny the truth that there aren’t enough tests and supplies, reject responsibility and dump the burden onto the states.
To reopen our economy safely, we need testing to be free, accurate, reliable and accompanied by tools like contact tracing so we can slow the spread of the virus and prevent outbreaks.

Want to know what’s in the $3 trillion, 1,800-page spending package that Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are pushing today? Here are 5 of the most egregious provisions in today’s stimulus bill, dubbed the #HeroesAct
First up: incredibly wasteful spending on liberal pet projects. This includes $50 million to the EPA for a study on pollution and COVID-19, $10 million more for the National Endowment of the Arts, and $10 million for the National Endowment for the Humanities… #HeroesAct
Next: radical immigration provisions including amnesty for some illegal immigrants and allowing some illegal immigrants to receive stimulus checks intended for American citizens... #HeroesAct

The #HeroesAct, the #coronavirus bill we are voting on today, contains several important priorities I fought for. While the bill could go further, I’m pleased with much of what we secured. 1/12
The bill boosts funds for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (#SNAP) by 15%. In my district, I’ve seen lines at local food banks. Families need this assistance. 2/12
It provides a second round of more substantial economic stimulus payments consisting of $1,200 per family member, and up to $6,000 per household to ease the financial burden that many are experiencing due to #COVID19. 3/12

Mike Klipper is updating us on the additional relief legislation now being considered by the House. Dems and Reps are "very far apart." The President has dubbed the legislation "Dead on Arrival." #HeroesAct

At a time when everyone in America is counting on each other, the #HeroesAct is an urgently needed solution that invests in the recovery of our communities, protects all workers on the frontlines, and helps families access resources, testing and treatment.…
The #HEROESAct provides a second round of stimulus payments to all households — $1,200 per family member, up to $6,000 — and ends discriminatory treatment that previously excluded individuals married to an undocumented person from receiving tax rebates.
The #HeroesAct protects democracy by providing states with crucial funding to ensure safe elections and requires that states create publicly available contingency plans for federal elections during emergencies.

So I finished reading through the 1815 page #HEROESAct yesterday.

Yes. I am a nerdy lawyer.

And yes, that is what a real public servant should do. You should know what you’re voting for.

Here are my thoughts

First, it’s important to note that many House Dems recognize this is a wish list. There’s no anticipation the Senate will vote for it.

But it does contain some much needed help for certain groups that I hope we can find common ground on—like $25B for the Post Office.

It was encouraging to see some attempt at helping rural communities specifically, with efforts like rural internet access and grants for some rural healthcare collaborations.

House Democrats have released a completely unserious proposal to respond to the public health and economic crisis the nation is confronting as a result of COVID-19. Here are 5 red flags in the #HeroesAct… @Heritage
1) The bill would extend the misguided and harmful $600 unemployment bonus through January 2021, with an additional extension possible through March of next year.
2) The bill would lift the current $10,000 cap on the federal deduction for state and local taxes in 2020 and 2021 (SALT) which would provide a two-year windfall tax cut to the wealthiest taxpayers in the highest-tax states.

The #HeroesAct, unveiled in rough form by Dems today includes another Stimulus Payment-with increased household eligibility.
Read it here:
If the Heroes Act passes as is re second round of Stimulus payments it will ensure “college students, non-child dependents, & Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) filers” are eligible for $1,200 direct payments & income limit is now 150K/yr for married couples.
2-"If the House legislation were signed into law, a married couple making up to $150,000 with two children would receive $4,800..A single parent making up to $112,500 with one child would receive $2,400..A married couple making up to $150K with three children would get $6,000."
