Because the MSM knows that much like Hillary and Barack, Kamala has the recipe for sending Trump and the entire @GOP back to the swamp and turning the Dirty “red” South blue for @JoeBiden with #VoteByMail2020. They don’t wanna give us the chance to #VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare 🤡

Increases the amount of money being offered to individuals to $1,500, and up to $7,500 for a family of five. The same GOP income thresholds in the GOP bill would apply — $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for couples,
but the benefit would be available to anyone with an individual taxpayer identification number, retirees and unemployed individuals. Waives $10,000 in federal student loan payments.

Breaking: Senate Democrats blocked action on the third economic stimulus bill related to #Coronavirus because guess what? It doesn’t give enough help to workers. Most of the exorbitant bill has goodies for big business. So when Trump calls out Dems,remember they are #ForThePeople
Senate Dems were right to vote against Mitch’s trillions-for-the-rich bill.

❗ THREAD ❗

This week marks the one year anniversary of the U.S. House passing #HR1 - the #ForThePeople Act. This landmark legislation is the biggest political reform package proposed in Congress since Watergate and would improve our democracy for ALL Americans.
The #ForThePeople Act deals with ethics, campaign finance, voting rights, and gerrymandering.

While Mitch McConnell & the @SenateGOP have refused to even bring the bill up for a hearing or vote, states across the country are already implementing many of the reforms in #HR1.
One of the key reforms in #HR1 is a new small donor-focused public campaign finance system that gives everyday people a bigger voice in politics and limits the power of special interests. These types of programs have passed & worked in states & localities across the country.

🚨ICYMI: Speaker Pelosi was in a familiar role again – the adult handling another complex web of urgent issues #ForThePeople.

Stepping up to deliver on resources and game plan to fight the #coronavirus, she also slammed Republicans and Facebook for sabotaging our #census.

#CA12
As concern grew about whether the administration was prioritizing evidence-based policy and transparency with the public, the House came together w/ the Speaker's incredible leadership to pass a bipartisan bill that brings order and resources to this difficult task. #coronavirus
With challenges of this scope, taking care of immediate needs is only the beginning.

Mindful of any collateral impact on many aspects of life #ForThePeople, Speaker Pelosi put issues of health worker safety, unemployment insurance & business losses on the WH radar. #coronavirus

Call/email your reps without delay and ask them to vote NO on the federal version of #AB5. If you’re an independent contractor or hire independent contractors this is the federal version of the hell we aredealing with in California. Oppose #PROAct (H.R.2474) CONTACT YOUR REPS!
#PROAct is an anti-gig bill. It’s not #ForthePeople it hurts anyone who is freelance or works in the gig economy or hires independent contractors. So to everyone who pointed your finger and said “tHiS is wHaT yOu gEt for liVinG iN CaliFoRnia” now this nightmare is coming to you.

#KamalaHarris is on the J.O.B. y'all! Watching the press conference with her Schumer, Murray, Brown, etc. #ForThePeople #GOPCoverup #WeWantWitnessesAndDocuments
pscp.tv/w/cQRKbDFQWEtk…
Thank you #KamalaHarris for being a powerful voice of clarity and for justice during this #ImpeachmentTrial
Must watch remarks from #Kamala as she brilliantly lays out the facts about this #GOPCoverup in a way that everyone can understand what's at stake. Here is part 1/2.
Here #KamalaHarris does her own mini-prosecution explaining how the GOP co-conspirators are subverting the Constitution by allowing Trump to solicit foreign interference in our country. She also makes it clear: there can be no acquittal without a fair trial. #GOPCoverup (Pt 2/2)

Couldn't agree more w/ @SpeakerPelosi that the House managers have been "magnificent custodians of the Constitution" against Trump's lawlessness.

Thank you, @RepAdamSchiff @RepJerryNadler @RepZoeLofgren @RepJeffries @RepValDemings @RepJasonCrow @RepSylviaGarcia!

#WitnessesNOW
@SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @RepJerryNadler @RepZoeLofgren @RepJeffries @RepValDemings @RepJasonCrow @RepSylviaGarcia As they're suing to kill the #AffordableCareAct that protects 130M w/ preexisting conditions & covers 20M, Republicans are now attacking #Medicaid – a vital program that covers 1 in 5 in America.

Because their efforts to dismantle our Constitution weren't enough for the week!?!
@SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @RepJerryNadler @RepZoeLofgren @RepJeffries @RepValDemings @RepJasonCrow @RepSylviaGarcia Surprise! Surprise! Trying to snatch health care from people is unpopular, 56-35!

Didn't we learn that in 2018 when Dems took the House on the strength of #MadamSpeaker's #ForThePeople agenda which centered on the promise to #ProtectOurCare?

We'll win the 2020 rematch too!🇺🇸🌊

Your process is already rigged, bias, and intended to let the off the hook for his actions. Doing thing in the dark of night is what criminals do, not what the righteous do. @threadreaderapp UNROLL @AnastasiaYeager @QueenBeeCanadas #Senate #WeThePeople #ForThePeople #Resist

We have become more of a professional Military there are pluses and minuses to this. We can throw them in to combat faster but we are wearing them down and they suffering more for it. @threadreaderapp UNROLL @AnastasiaYeager #ForThePeople #Senate
Yes, the divide between Civilian and Military is growing and we are no longer a citizen military with professionals training and running the military. The draft kept us a citizen army and . @threadreaderapp unroll @AnastasiaYeager #ForThePeople #Senate
the citizens understood what it meant to be in the military. The citizen passed his understand of the military to his family. This had the benefit also keeping the military cleaner in its actions. @threadreaderapp unroll @AnastasiaYeager #ForThePeople #Senate

In 2019, I joined my @HouseDemocrats colleagues on a single mission: To fight #ForThePeople. We passed 400+ bills, including 275+ bipartisan bills that @senatemajldr refuses to act on, and we fought to hold this Administration accountable for its corruption. A few highlights:
We took on the corrupt role of money in our politics & passed the #ForThePeople Act. This bill included my Democracy Dollars Act to pilot nationally the Seattle program that allows people to use vouchers to make small-dollar political contributions. jayapal.house.gov/2019/03/08/h-r…
I, along w/@RepAdamSmith, introduced the #DignityForDetainedImmigrants Act—w/138 cosponsors—to end mandatory detention, protect asylum-seekers & other vulnerable populations, eliminate the for-profit prison system, & ensure immigrants are treated with dignity.

McDonnell is talking about dismissing the #Impeachment of @realDonaldTrump after opening statements

If you REALLY want to put the #Democrats feet to the 🔥, you drag this 💩 out as LONG as possible

Bring ALL of the #Corruption to the forefront

NO HOLDS BARRED

CONTINUED👇👇👇
An expediated trial makes it appear as though there IS coverup, which in essence, could be detrimental to #Trump2020

The #MSM has been controlling the narrative since BEFORE he was elected, and the only way to extinguish the gaslighting is with the FACTS...

CONTINUED👇👇👇
@senatemajldr THIS is your shot to prove you are #ForThePeople

Bring the #Corruption from #DarkToLight

If you don't, YOUR actions will prove, to #WeThePeople, that you are what many think, in fact, a part of the #Swamp

The Republicans do not love the United States or its people. They love power and money. They have chosen not the God of Christian, Jew, and Muslum but of their own Donald J Trump. @threadreaderapp UNROLL
Republicans keep talking but not with, truth, understanding, or wisdom, but I have heard lie upon lie, falsehood upon falsehood, false accusation after false accusation. They do not want justice or due process, they want capitulation. @threadreaderapp UNROLL
Republicans want Americans to Surrender our freedom, our rights, our free will, and more. They expect Americans to fall in line and goose step to their drum. They want us to ignore the crimes Pres. Trump and his Administration. @threadreaderapp UNROLL

Sir, the only lies that are being told are your lies, Mr. Pres. It is regrettable, but there is a reason for your impeachment.
Bribery and extortion are crimes. Holding back aid and falsifying and altering documents is a crime. @threadreaderapp UNROLL
Not complying with Congressional Subpoenas and ordering witnesses not to testify are crimes and Obstruction of Congress and Justice. Personally, I think you are getting off easy. Further, you have been misleading the American People @threadreaderapp UNROLL
with all your lying, you are 14,000 lies and Congressional kiss asses love to repeat your lies, they lack originality. The Republican party has become like a bunch of dogs pursuing a bitch in heat @threadreaderapp UNROLL

The GOP continues to lie and distort the facts and the truth, it is heartbreaking to watch. Why would anyone want to keep a criminal in the WH is beyond me?
Why does the GOP think Sexual indiscretion is impeachable but not bribery, extortion, or duress? Why is it ok for this President and Administration to Obstruction of Justice and Congress and not for any other President? @threadreaderapp Unroll
This conduct should not be permitted it is against the very premise of the Constitution and everything we have fought for and our citizens have died for. Is this what we have become, a Nation that has castoff its principals, values, @threadreaderapp UNROLL

If Kamala Harris endorses Joe Biden, I hope she makes that endorsement or any potential veep or cabinet spot contingent on him making her core plans part of his platform.
Her core plans include: Rent Relief & Lift Acts kamalaharris.org/policies/rent-…
It includes her Teacher deserve a raise plan. kamalaharris.org/policies/teach…

People keep asking why did #KamalaHarris suspend her campaign. I think for three reasons: money, optics and class. It was a smart decision under the current circumstances. A thread👇🏾 /1
Kamala raised close to $40 million, which is more money than any black woman to run. She garnered over 350K donors and had over 1 million donations, but that’s still not enough for campaigns. Especially with billionaires in the race and not receiving PAC money. /2
Kamala looked at her runway and made a good call. There is no point in 1) going into debt and jeopardize her next run, and 2) keep burning money on a vanity run. We have enough people currently doing that, and we know this isn’t about ego for her. /3

Today I wrote (again) about women candidates getting negative media hype (turns out MSM let the insurance industry vet those anti-@ewarren pieces on #M4A).
I wrote over the weekend that @KamalaHarris had been featured negatively in stories promoting Biden's #NoMalarkeyBusTour.

Yet when @KamalaHarris launched HER #ForThePeople bus tour--no MSM spots promoting her.
Today Harris was with @rashadrobinson on the @VotingWhileBlk podcast.
Check out what the MSM is ignoring, because #RepresentationMatters:

Also: @ewarren had a ginormous rally this weekend that the MSM "forgot" to cover because Biden bought a bus. Here is a really moving moment from that event when she was asked whether someone had dissed her whose validation was important to her:

Trump gripes about not being represented at the hearing. He could have testified if he chose to. The Intelligence Committee investigated and may still investigate, but since when do investigators allow the culprit to be present during questioning. @threadreaderapp UNROLL
He could have exercised his right to testify on his own behalf. On the Southern Border, they violate the 1st, 4th -9th, 14th Amendments daily. These people have denied their rights under the Constitution. They have been lied to and defrauded of justice. @threadreaderapp UNROLL
They have been unlawfully detained by our law and international law which we have agreed to. Here is whining about his rights, but what he wants is special rights.@threadreaderapp UNROLL
