"@RobWittman has voted dozens of times to repeal Obamacare & thus eliminate the health insurance of 20 million Americans—without the slightest idea on how to replace it."

I want an open discussion on the best healthcare for Americans (1/x)…
We’ve asked constituents in #VA01: "How would repealing the ACA impact your lives?"

Their responses always start: "That depends what it would be replaced with."

"Nothing, no plan."

"Oh. It would be devastating to us." (2/x)
The plan that @ReElectWittman voted for?

The American Health Care Act.

It passed the House with not a single Democrat vote, no attempt to engage the minority. He touts bipartisanship (this clip from our debate last week), but Rob Wittman doesn't act or vote that way (3/x)

15 years ago this week Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana & Houston. 1800 Americans dead & $125B in damage

As a graduating college Senior, I emailed my professors to skip 10 days of class in my final semester & drive from Chicago to Louisiana & volunteer w/@HFUSA

This is the email I sent in 2005.

If my Professors said no—and I went anyway—it would mean I couldn't graduate because I'd fail & wouldn't have enough credits.

No two ways about it, but I pleaded my case anyway in hopes they'd listen.
The response was a resounding "Nope, you can't go."

Here's the reply one Professor sent me. Notice the part I've highlighted. When we met he made it clear I had to choose.

Graduate? Or Katrina relief?

I Had To Choose. What were my longer term priorities?

The attacks on the USPS are unrelenting. It’s only becoming more clear that the issue is not about money; it’s about restricting voters. Why is that the GOP has endless funding for big corporations, but for essentials like the Postal Service, they look the other way. Image
“This is so important to our democracy, that I’m honored to have the postal service be such a large part of our election.” USPS is a proud part of America’s history & has worked tirelessly to keep us connected during this pandemic…
People may think of the USPS as something you just use to mail a birthday card to your grandchild, let Santa know your Christmas wishlist, or send that one stubborn bill not yet payable online. But USPS fills many crucial roles for so many Americans.

I know I don’t have many followers and this will reach only so many but I want people to know that @QasimRashid truly does have the best interest of Virginians at heart. He has actually engaged with the people at their doorstep as he did me.
I was caught off guard that Monday in 2019 he knocked on my door, I thought maybe a solicitor wanted to sell me on religion or maybe siding for my home. Either way I was going to see who this man was. He introduced himself and shook my hand and told me...
Who he was and gave me his flyer and asked for my vote. He didn’t care about my race or my political affiliation and told me what he wanted to do. Honestly I was beside myself. This was the first time in my life that a candidate or a politician ever..
