This is an editorial screed against @BernieSanders and progressives masquerading as a news story. What they mean is that the American people have gotten off their leash and will not be whistled back to crouch politely at the feet of the elite. nytimes.com/2019/03/09/us/…
The American working class consensus is that everyone should have healthcare, that the rich should pay more taxes instead of us, that jobs should be created ending pollution, instead of creating it, and that free trade shouldn’t be a free ride for corporate flight from the USA.
I guess the @NYTimes forgot that #HillaryClinton lost #Michigan, #Ohio, and #Pennsylvania. The real American consensus is that the leaders the Times have chosen for us suck. nytimes.com/2019/03/09/us/…

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

1.#Trump´s repeated attacks on the free media and the 1st Amendment or #FakeNews/Lying Press has a precedent, tracing back to the history of the German phrase #Lugenpresse, used by the #Nazi´s.

One thing: Managed care plans in #Ohio can be REQUIRED to improve screening this or have their $ impacted.

@MikeDeWine has stated that looking at the plans' contracts to improve HEDIS performance is on the table. Good. They should be at risk for improving the screening rates. cc: @JoEllenCorrigan
For example: across all of the adolescent metrics tracked by the state, NO plan achieved above the 75th percentile in any given measure:

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

There is a possibility of an announcement today. That’s if the collective U.S. government is unable to push back against #Trump - as it did earlier in the year after his comments in #Ohio.

More than anything, this is an extraordinary insult to the recent efforts of Amb. Jeffrey.
#pt: #Trump told #Turkey’s #Erdogan of his intentions by phone on Friday last week.

Coming in the context of Turkish threats to intervene in NE #Syria, the message to the #YPG/#SDF couldn’t be any worse. The US will abandon “the Kurds” again, if #Trump gets his way here.
#pt: Worse still, this’ll be music to the ears of #ISIS, #Assad, #Russia & #Iran.

#Trump isn’t only doing what #Obama did in leaving #Iraq prematurely, he’s doing it in an environment in which #America’s adversaries will benefit: jihadis, #Iran and #Russia.

Unbelievable hubris.

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject electproject.org/early_2018
#Midterms2018 : dans tous le pays, les chiffres de la participation le jour du vote semblent aussi largement au-dessus de la normale, et ils dépassent même parfois ceux enregistrés en 2016. Pour rappel, la participation lors des midterms est généralement inférieure de 20 points.
#Midterms2018 : à #Nashville, la participation est déjà supérieure à celle de 2016. La mobilisation dans ce bastion démocrate du très conservateur #Tennessee est essentielle pour que @PhilBredesen conserve une chance d'être élu Sénateur.

🌊🗳️#Democratic Americans—the ones who are standing up for Democracy—have gone to "extraordinary lengths" to promote candidates and get out the vote. They've:

▶️Quit jobs
▶️Delayed school
▶️Moved across country
▶️Worked without pay

To stand up for Democracy and their country.
🙌👊Thank you to all of them.

@nytimes: Their zeal speaks to the historic political moment, in which a dizzying array of House races across the country have begun to feel as consequential as a presidential election.

THREAD: Here’s every race in 2018 #Midterms where you can vote for weed legalization or against some old asshole blocking legalization. And oh yeah, help save democracy.
In #Michigan, Proposal 18-1 would legalize cannabis including flowers, concentrates and edibles. Plus you can grow 12 plants at home! freep.com/story/opinion/…
In #Missouri, three competing legalization measures are on the ballot. Measure 2 is backed by local grassroots activists. The other two are pretty sketchy. My colleagues at @Leafly break it down in detail. leafly.com/news/politics/…

Low-income Ohioans in these 26 counties are not required to work to receive food stamps. They are 97% white.

95% of Ohio's African-American families live outside of these counties, where they must work to receive food stamps. Read more in my latest paper: communitysolutions.com/research/recei…
The average unemployment rate in Ohio's eight largest cities is about 12%. Seven of them have unemployment rates higher than almost all 26 counties where work requirements for food stamps are waived. Read more in my latest paper communitysolutions.com/research/recei…

#SNAP #Food #Ohio #poverty
TLDR; OH's waiver of work reqs for food stamps at the county level implicitly favors rural white Ohioans, while minorities in cities w/ high unemployment and poverty are not granted such leniency.

OH's proposal to implement work reqs in #medicaid uses the same exemption criteria
