Imagine instead of risking it all to install some ideological judges, the political party that actually won more votes risked it all to help millions of people in real, meaningful ways.

Turned off by Biden’s approach, GOP opposition to stimulus relief intensifies

The GOP had eleven months to do something to help American families, and all they did was encourage people to keep exposing themselves and their communities to a deadly virus. Their opposition to relief has nothing to do with β€œapproach” and the Post knows it

Most voters don’t pay enough attention to have an opinion on the filibuster. But they will *absolutely* have an opinion if the party that is ostensibly in charge fails to actually govern.

Democrats need to treat this relief package (and their legislative agenda) the way McConnell treats Supreme Court nominations: you do what needs to be done to get it done.

Call your Senators on Monday and tell them, roughly this:

It should surprise exactly no one that @TomCottonAR is a liar, but I would have bet that he was too smart to go in for stolen valor.

I would have been wrong.

Everyone needs to read this. The headline doesn’t cover the half of it.

If he’s not convicted they will try something like this again.
They won’t convict him because they want to try something like this again.

Who sent them.

Something that gets easily forgotten is the 60 vote senate has never really been a thing. As recently as the start of my career in 2003, a major Medicare reform bill passed with a bare majority because filibustering a conference report wasn’t done.

President Biden just signed two executive orders: One focused on expanding food assistance and delivering stimulus checks to very low-income Americans, and the other on raising the minimum wage to $15 for the federal workforce.

Now, more than ever, this history is necessary. Teach queer history.

Queer people have always been here.

Fascism never stops without accountability.

Traditionalism is revisionist history.

Do not get complacent. None of this is over. Do not go silent.
