The Senate bill to bolster U.S. Science & Innovation to counter China's growing lead, passed 68-32 yesterday. Eighteen GOP joined DEMs. Thirty-two GOP don't give a damn that the U.S. is reliant on China and they're surpassing us in science and innovation.

SEE votes 👇
"Yea" = all DEMs plus these GOP

Blunt (MO)
Capito (WV)
Collins (ME)
Cornyn (TX)
Crapo (ID)
Daines (MT)
Graham (SC)
Grassley (IA)
McConnell (KY)
Risch (ID)
Romney (UT)
Rounds (SD)
Sasse (NB)
Sullivan (AK)
Tillis (NC)
Wicker (MS)
Young (IN)
The 32 Republicans who don't mind that China is overtaking the U.S. in science, manufacturing, and innovation. They voted "nay" to support funding for leading U.S. businesses and institutions. "Made in America" GOP? Not so much.
Just think about the likelihood that Biden's (our agenda) will get enough bipartisan support for bills to pass. If only 18 GOP crossed-over for the MOST American bill in ages, the 60 vote margin will NEVER be exceeded for Voting Rights and other essential bills

I forgot to include Senator Lisa Murkowski as one of the 18 Republicans voting 'yea' to pass the bill.

Twitter - I got somethin' to tell ya .... It's kinda personal

I had 2 Pfizer shots. I have a bucket load of autoimmune diseases and am on immunosuppressant medications as treatment (have to).

I had a COVID antibody test & results are negative. I have NO protection against COVID
2/ So, when you see some of us wearing masks and continuing to social distance, please know we're trying to save our own lives. Nothin' personal.

Hopefully, this phase of the COVID pandemic will get resolved. This is the big hurdle now: How long does the vaccine last?
3/ What are the levels of antibodies necessary to have immunity? What should be done for those who don't develop antibodies (like me and millions of others with autoimmune diseases). Oh p.s. many folks with autoimmune disease DO have antibodies after vaccination

I am going to post the entire Opinion piece Rep Liz Cheney wrote for WaPo [thread]. I know many on Twitter aren't WaPo subscribers. Her piece is too important NOT to share

"Opinion: Liz Cheney: The GOP is at a turning point. History is watching us."…
2/ I'm going to omit or edit some text for brevity.

In public statements again this week, former president Donald Trump has repeated his claims that the 2020 election was a fraud and was stolen. His message: I am still the rightful president, and President Biden is illegitimate
3/ Trump repeats these words now with full knowledge that exactly this type of language provoked violence on Jan. 6. And, as the Justice Department and multiple federal judges have suggested, there is good reason to believe that Trump’s language can provoke violence again.

I took screen shots of the FB presentation regarding the Census results. This guy 👇 was the speaker

The population of the US is now 331,449,281 (three hundred thirty one million, four hundred forty nine thousand, two hundred eighty one people)
2/ The 2020 census data does not include DC or Puerto Rico because they are NOT states and don't have congressional districts or electorates
3/ I think the 2020 census data is inaccurate. The population grew from 2000-2010 by 9.7% but from 2010-2020 the population only grew by 7.4%. The census was taken prior to most of the COVID deaths. I'm guessing Trump's interference throughout was the reason for the undercount.
