“Lessons from British Elections: Change Candidates Win — That’s Why We Need Elizabeth Warren” by Robert Creamer

👉 LISTEN TO THESE DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL EXPERTS

#WinWithWarren

#Warren2020
“To win, progressives must offer decisive, fundamental structural change that directly addresses the view of ordinary voters that the economy is rigged against them to benefit billionaires and massive global corporations — not ordinary people.” #WinWithWarren 1/
“Both Barack Obama and Donald Trump were change candidates. In 2020, Elizabeth Warren is the change candidate that can most credibly offer the decisive progressive change ordinary voters want — and win this critical election.”

💪 @SpeakerPelosi issued this statement on House Republicans’ attempt to censure Chairman @RepAdamSchiff (thread).

#ImpeachmentTaskForce 1/
Chairman Schiff is a great American patriot. Our country is extremely well-served by his serious, smart & strategic leadership to protect our elections, national security & democracy – which sadly stands in stark contrast to Republicans in the Congress who cover up the truth, 2/

When Trump says the NRA’s views will be “fully represented” in talks to #EndGunViolence, does he know they already have a president to do that? As US President, he should care more about the views of 97% of Americans who support background checks. #GiveUSAVote 1/
Senate Republicans up for reelection in states like AZ, CO, OH and ME need to stop standing with the NRA and start standing up for our kids by demanding Mitch McConnell #GiveUsAVote on background checks for gun sales. Don’t ask for our votes if you can’t do your job right now! 2/
Trump says he is “all in favor” of strong background checks for gun sales. Actions speak louder than words. He needs to get #MoscowMich McConnell to #GiveUsAVote in the Senate on measures already advanced in the House. Let’s get this done. #Enough! 3/

Head’s up. @SwingLeft is paying attention to #Census2020 and #Gerrymandering in terms of protecting our democracy. I like their strategy for the win. Here is their recent email, which they asked us to share liberally on social media. #Election2020 1/
The Trump administration has tried to sneak a question of citizenship status into the #2020census. Recently leaked documents from a GOP redistricting strategist revealed it was created specifically to exclude minority groups like Latinx from census participation—resulting in 2/
... inaccurate population counts that affect apportionment (how House seats are distributed) and federal funding for critical social services. If this happens, Republicans will have another baked-in electoral advantage—and communities of color will be underrepresented ...

Mueller’s findings were damning: Trump welcomed Russia’s interference in our elections. Trump benefited from these crimes. Trump and Republicans in Congress are doing nothing to stop it from happening again. Congress must protect our democracy #ForThePeople #TrumpResignNOW 1/
Likely because he stands to benefit – again, Trump has done nothing to prevent another Russian attack of our elections and, in fact,
has made a future attack more likely. Republicans in Congress must join with Democrats to protect our democracy #ForThePeople #TrumpResignNOW 2/
From the start, Trump abused his power by obstructing any probe into Russia’s attack on our democracy. Although Mueller found
evidence of bad acts anyway, he made clear that Trump’s actions negatively impacted his ability to get at the full truth

We will never forget the disgraceful AHCA vote on May 4th, 2017 as a symbol of the GOP’s war on health care, and there’s no doubt we will continue to hold Trump and Republicans accountable for their reckless actions to take away our health care. #ProtectOurCare #MadamSpeaker 1/
Two years ago, the GOP voted to repeal our health care. If it had become law, it would have left 23 MILLION *more* Americans without coverage, raised premiums by 20 percent, and gutted protections for people with pre-existing conditions. #WeWontForget #ProtectOurCare 2/
Two years ago, on May 4, 2017, the GOP House of Representatives passed the so-called “American Health Care Act,” or #AHCA, a health repeal bill that would have cut coverage, increased costs, and eliminated protections for millions of Americans. #WeWontForget #ProtectOurCare 3/
