We are 527 days into this Congress.

Do not lose track of the recent Republican actions (or lack thereof) and their consequences. Thread ⬇️:
2: Times Republicans shut down the federal government so far this year
69: Times House GOP voted to repeal or undermine the ACA since 2011
7: Times Republicans voted for measures attacking women’s health care so far in this Congress including votes to pass a dangerous, unconstitutional bill that would deny women care in certain life-threatening circumstances
217: Number of Republicans who voted for the disastrous Trumpcare bill which would have resulted in 23 million losing their health insurance coverage, raised out-of-pocket health care costs for millions of families, & gutted protections for people with pre-existing conditions
22-32 million: Number of Americans who would lose health coverage under the various iterations of #Trumpcare (according to the nonpartisan @USCBO)
85: Percent of Americans - including 76% of Republicans and 96% of Democrats – who say Congress should do more to address the issue of mass shootings (according to a May 2018 American Psychiatric Association poll)
$1.8 Trillion: Amount the #GOPTaxScam will add to the national debt over the next ten years (according to the nonpartisan @USCBO)
83: Percent of the tax cuts in the #GOPTaxScam that go to the wealthiest 1 percent by 2027 – putting corporations and the richest ahead of everyone else
77: Percent of Americans who say #Dreamers should be allowed to stay in the United States and eventually apply for citizenship
27: Times House GOP blocked a vote on H.R. 3440, the bipartisan DREAM act, which protects #Dreamers and gives them a path to citizenship
30: Number of House Republicans who voted with 183 Democrats to vote down H.R. 2 - the GOP Leadership’s partisan #FarmBill
9: Times Republicans have voted to block bringing up a bill to create a bipartisan, independent, outside commission to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. election
8: Times Republicans have blocked a vote on a bill to require Presidents and candidates for President to disclose their tax returns
ZERO: Number of full committee hearings on Russia and the 2016 election in either the House Homeland Security Committee or Committee on House Administration – both of which have jurisdiction over election security issues
Remember this.
