We're starting to get blue's clues here, but on quick glance I don't see much here other than the word "lobster" on two pages in this document; lobster defined and page 103 which doesn't say much about what Bruce said.
The mainstream media - @PressHerald and the New York Times - is getting played by Susan Collins big time. The rest of us are not fools. #mepolitics
Susan Collins voted for the GOP tax scam after "assurances" from McConnell on an ACA stabilization bill. She will vote for an anti-Roe justice after "assurances" the nominee will "respect precedent." See the pattern? #mepolitics
Make no mistake: the ACA and women's health are at stake. Trump's litmus test for a justice: strike down health care. Flood with calls => @lisamurkowski 202-224-6665 @SenatorCollins 202-224-2523 #mepolitics
The summary is that the AG and Secretary of HHS shall use all necessary means to ensure that each unaccompanied alien child who was removed to be reunited...but there are some concerns. It's a little vague.
Wow. This is the private letter @SenatorCollins is sending to her constituents rationalizing Trump's policy of separating children from their families. #mepolitics
Susan Collins is the most "moderate" Republican Senator. She is defending the Sessions policy in private!!! We need to vote them ALL out.
In a way, this should not be a surprise. Susan Collins *introduced* Jeff Sessions at his nomination hearing! "I can vouch confidently for the fact that Jeff Sessions is a person of integrity, a principled leader, and a dedicated public servant." collins.senate.gov/newsroom/senat…
Promotes education? Sounds good
Clarify? Well, seems reasonable
Notice and cure? That seems like a prudent course
Why are people all upset?
Our first hint that something more nefarious is afoot comes pretty swiftly. Reform is a strong word for the title given the description. Adding a little education, clarification and a notice/cure seems fairly wimpy to earn a bold word like "reform".
As a parent and grandparent, I am grieving today for the 17 families who lost loved ones in the #Parkland school tragedy and for the survivors who will be forever haunted by what they lived through. 1/7 #mepolitics
I’m ashamed to be in a Congress that continues to sit on its hands while these tragedies and our constituents demand swift action. 2/7 #mepolitics
It’s not for lack of trying on the part of Democrats, who have offered sensible legislation to stem the flow of weapons into the hands of those who would use them to slaughter members of our communities. 3/7
Disclaimer, I do not work in employment law. Were I actually voting on this bill, I would phone a friend(s) to make sure I am not missing anything. First page is nothing sensational - title, sponsors, etc.
P. 2 - There are a lot of references throughout that reference the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995, without appropriate citations or specificity. A bit sloppy to me. A good use of staff is looking up references for efficient bill reading, it shouldn't take this long.
We should not elect ANYONE who does not demonstrate a capacity to read laws and does not appear to enjoy doing so. That's *the* job.
I wish everyone would take a step back from positions to notice many of our legislators are not proficient in the basic skills of the job. #TWPSB
If someone has not read and/or does not understand the text of a bill and the consequences that flow from that bill, then their opinions on positions are moot...because they cannot tell you if the bill accurately reflects those positions or addresses their championed problems.
