As an A+++ personality, I read ALL the instructions. I consolidated my loans and my payments as instructed. I submitted my Certification of Employment paperwork every year beginning 2010
Back then, there was no tracking system, so I made one. I was counting my payments, ticking off progress to #120. In 2012, I was told, for the first time, that I had not read the fine print carefully enough

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020.This part is called: RESTORING AND STRENGTHENING OUR DEMOCRACY:Building an Effective,Transparent Federal Government/Only one party understands that qualified,dedicated civil servants serve the people &this nation, not special interests.1/14
#Democrats condemn President Trump's determination to sow chaos and division by inappropriately deploying federal agents to American cities, where too many have used egregious tactics against peaceful protestors. 2/14 #DemPartyPlatform #TrumpChaos
#Democrats know federal agents can ably protect federal property while also clearly displaying badges, insignias, and identifying markings; without detaining Americans in undisclosed locations without cause & without brutally attacking peaceful protestors. 3/14 #DemPartyPlatform

Deputy City Attorney Erin Kuka here. I took over my office’s account today! (Thx, Dennis!)

It’s a big day bc our case re the 2020 census is at the U.S. Supreme Court! I’ve been on the case since day 1, and today I’ll tell you everything you need to know. #Census2020 #SCOTUS
First, what’s happening today? We’re in a coalition that banded together to fight injustice. Barbara Underwood from @NewYorkStateAG and @dale_e_ho from @ACLU are arguing for all of us.
No cameras or phones are allowed in the Supreme Court, but SCOTUS will release a transcript later today—I’ll post as soon as it’s out. #HittingRefreshAllMorning #Patience
