It couldn’t be any clearer what Republicans in states like GA and TX are doing. They are purposely undermining voting rights for Black and Latino Americans. Here’s how they’re doing it:
1. #GA Republicans are holding up the voter registration of 53,000, mostly Black people. The state’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp who oversees the voting roll is in a race for governor against Democrat @StaceyAbrams: nbcnews.com/politics/elect…
2. Florida has barred ex-felons who have completed their sentences from voting in the state denying 1.5 million people the right to vote. A referendum on the ballot in November would restore voting rights to these people: nytimes.com/2018/09/26/mag…

President says civilian federal workers will not get a raise in 2019. Most folks think that most federal employees work here in the Washington area - but actually the opposite is true: 80% work elsewhere, including swing and red states /1
Approximate number of civilian govt. workers/voters in the following states will not get raises in 2019, because of @realDonaldTrump's decision today:
#FL: 79K
#GA: 72K
#IA: 9K
#KY: 23K
#MICH: 26K
#MO: 34K
#NC: 44K
#OH: 50K
#PA: 60K
#TX: 114K
#VA: 136K
#WV: 15K
#WISC: 15K

/3 Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin & Pennsylvania by some 80,000 votes, but says today that he's denying 101,000 civilian workers in those states a raise next year - and announcing it two months before a midterm election, and two years before he'll likely face voters again himself

⁉️WHAT⁉️

Public pension funds in #NJ and #OH used **HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS of taxpayer money** to bankroll a failing business: #AMI, the company that owns The National Enquirer.

Gee, this sounds kinda bad, doesn't it.🙄

AMI/The National Enquirer is not owned by @realdonaldtrump’s pal, David Pecker. It’s owned by Chatham Asset Management (hedge fund).🤨
Chatham & another Chatham co. manage **$500 million of #NJ state pension funds & $125 million of #OH state pension funds** and are raising new money/trying to refinance **$450 million in AMI debt**. Only w/Chatham’s support did Pecker keep control of AMI.

Impact of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act by Congressional District Map.

Median HH income in #Ohio12 ($61,304) got avg. tax cut of $1,456. #OH voters making $100K to < $200K backed Trump 57%-39%. In #OH12, that avg. income ($132,146) bracket's tax cut = $2,762. ppdnews.us/b9KRD5U
Thread Update: Just to clarify my point here, Ohio 12 is not a Trumplican district. It's a typical GOP coalition district. They're going to find out that their healthcare failure hurt them more than tax cuts are helping them. peoplespunditdaily.com/news/elections…
It may be easier for congressional & D.C.-aligned Republicans to blame @realDonaldTrump for their problems in certain districts. Media will even help. But you cannot break a 7-year promise and not expect to be punished. With the economy improving, healthcare is a rising concern.
