🧵on @TheDemocrats delivering for the American people in the last 11 days:

@SenateDems passed the Inflation Reduction Act reducing costs on health care, Rx drugs, and energy— paid for by ensuring the largest corporations pay their fair share in taxes while the deficit goes down.
CHIPS Plus passes — includes over $52 billion for U.S. companies producing computer chips, allocates billions more in tax credits to encourage investment in chip manufacturing, provides tens of billions to fund scientific research, and incentivize innovation of other U.S. tech.
After eluding U.S. intelligence agencies for two decades, leader of al-Qaeda and co-planner of the 9/11 attacks Ayman al-Zawahiri, was killed at the direction of @POTUS. He was the head of one of the biggest terror networks operating in Africa and the Middle East.

“That could be their vehicle to impose a NATIONWIDE BAN on abortion—on the order of the U.S. Supreme Court… They will now wield [power] however they want…to change the country however they want without restriction, and you must do what they say.”@maddow

“What makes people think that this radical conservative Supreme Court…would allow Congressional law protecting #RoeVWade? I’ll tell you the answer: THEY WON’T…as long as we let these 6 conservative theocrats control our country…”

“[Ben Wattenberg 1987 book says] ‘60% of fetuses that are aborted every year are white. If we could keep that 60% alive, that would solve our birth dearth.’ Does that sound like racism to you? And if it doesn’t, I want to know why it doesn’t.”

“Dr. Eastman and President* Trump launched a campaign to overturn a democratic election, an action unprecedented in American history. Their campaign was…a coup in search of a legal theory.”

“I've lost my name [and] sense of security—all because a group of people…scapegoat[ed] me and my daughter Shaye, to push their lies about how the Presidential election was stolen.”

“President* Trump…followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani—to just claim he won and insist the vote counting stop. To falsely claim that everything was fraudulent… Millions of Americans believed him.”

“The Trump campaign knew these claims of voter fraud were false; yet, they continued to barrage small dollar donors, encouraging them to donate to ‘The Official Election Defense Fund.’ @January6thCmte discovered NO SUCH FUND EXISTED.”

“I said to him: ‘Are you out of your f—ing mind?’ I said, ‘I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth from now on: ORDERLY TRANSITION.’”

Our power has thankfully been restored after about 90 minutes. I hate that this is a constant source of worry for Texans.

“I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen…which I told [Donald Trump] was bullshit… The incumbent [cannot] stay in power based on its view unsupported by specific evidence there was fraud in the election.” Bill Barr
#January6thCommittee: “Did that affect your perspective about the election when Attorney General Barr made that statement?”

Ivanka Trump: “It affected my perspective. I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying.”

“Any legal jargon you hear about seditious conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, and conspiracy to defraud the United States — all boils down to this: January 6th was the culmination of an attempted coup.”

It was easier for a 13-year-old boy to buy a rifle from a private seller at a gun show than to buy beer, cigarettes, porn, and lottery tickets. (🎥:#RealSports 2014)

Gun show loopholes still exist.

Senate Republicans won’t even vote to DEBATE safety laws.

🧵: When you & your kin have never had to worry about the FAFSA; college funds running out; pell/perkins $ coming in so as to buy books & food; the diff between subsidized/unsubsidized; finding a decent work study job & then starting life w/ 150k of debt, then you write this 👇🏾
For many, college is the gateway to break the cycle of poverty that entraps their family. I am a 1st-gen college grad. The first day I visited campus was the 1st day I enrolled. We couldn’t afford college visits- many can’t. I didn’t know what to expect & neither did my family.
On top of the demands & rigor of coursework, many students have financial anxiety. My first year, I was on the verge of having Thanksgiving alone in my dorm, but our Asst Bursar Alberta Deas heard about it & gave me a special loan to get a train ticket to SC to be with my family.

This is very good news.

Interest rates have been at historic lows since the Bush Great Recession of 2008, in an effort to heat up the economy. Republicans did all they could to stall the recovery during Obama's presidency. Despite that sabotage,...

... unemployment fell far below the level economists usually call "full employment." Obama even managed to shrink the deficit faster than any time since WW2. The stock market boomed.

For his first three years, Trump did little to alter the course of the Obama economy, ...

... other than ballooning the deficit to create still more economic growth.

Trump had planned to run for reelection on the strength of that economy, bragging about how good it was (while Republicans had tried to convince you for the Obama years that it was terrible).

It wasn’t a liberal who announced the Iraq war and New World Order led by a credible United Nations or Emergency Use Authorization or incentivized lockdowns. That was #Conservative #Republican #GOP @GOP #Bush was in #Dallas at #JFK assassination. #Cuba Father of the #CIA
#building7 #WTC23 collapsing without being hit gave Bush JR what he needed a war on terror. It was JR who made Emergency Use Authorization and facial recognition law realID. Everyone knows “Homeland” connection to Hitler. Nazis introduced the term “homeland” at their first rally.
That rally was at Nuremberg where doctors scientists & media would be executed for manipulating and forcing #Jews into medical experimentation. This is where #InformedConsent comes from. All #COVID19 #vaccines are experimental.

Oops they’re doing it again. Republican members of Congress want to be seen as voting in lockstep with their party but they also want credit when the legislation crafted & passed by #Democrats pay huge dividends for their constituents. #WeSeeYou👀 1/20 #DemocratsDeliver
This article, from Jan. 20, 2022 By Steve Benen tells the story of the double-dealing, mealy-mouthed, two-faced, weaselly, yellow-bellied, two-timing, lying Republican swine. The article doesn’t use those words but draw your own conclusions. 2/20…

Messaging Advice for Democrats: when talking about this historic #Infrastructure bill:

1.) Infrastructure = jobs. This is a job creation bill.

2.) Don’t get caught up in dollar figures - it’s not tangible enough to most Americans. Stick to language like “historic investment in”
3.) This bill is fully paid for. Period.

4.) #DemocratsDeliver more clean water to American families & to 400,000 schools.

5.) #DemsDeliver broadband internet access to millions of Americans who don’t currently have it.

6.) Most meaningful commitment to address Climate threat!
7.) Republicans just opposed building better roads, repairing bridges, expanding bus/train fleets, reducing gridlock, and improving fuel efficiency.

8.) GOP opposed clean air, clean water, safer environment for our children.

⚠️ Periodic reminder that coincidence ≠ correlation ≠ causation

As much as I want to believe that the VP can single-handedly deliver #VaccineEquity, the data doesn’t back up the suggestion that her visit to South Carolina did much. See my notes on the screenshot below 👀⤵️ Image
What would be helpful (according to the data)? If the @WHCOVIDResponse figured out how to get all of South Carolina’s 26 federally qualified health centers to offer #COVID19 vaccinations

Why? FQHCs helped turn the tide for states like California, and SC is underutilizing theirs Image
The 10 FQHCs that offer #COVID19 vaccinations in South Carolina are responsible for ~4% of the state’s doses administered to-date. That’s impressive

1. In a 3-tweet thread VA Speaker of the House @EFillerCorn endorses @MarkHerringVA in his reelection bid for VA Atty Gen.

That was an easy 1, but the VA Gov race is going to get CROWDED, likely on both sides. That said, as a former Gov @TerryMcAuliffe is the clear D frontrunner
2. The GOP nomination is already a shit show for VA Reps, who are trying to avoid nominating VA's version of MTG, @AmandaChaseVA. Chase was packing heat on the VA house floor long before MTG ran for Congress, until the Ds took control & imposed sanity. Her nomination would harken
3. back to the 2018 cycle, when GOP voters insisted on nominating a diff known white supremacist- Corey Stewart. Unlike many other Reps, some VA Rs, or at least right-leaning Indies, refused to support Stewart. Was clear in the ballot returns that Kaine received more crossover/
