Guess who’s repeal of the Faircloth Amendment just passed the House! 😌 

Faircloth has blocked construction of new public housing in the United States for 20+ YEARS. Repeal is key to tackling our housing crisis.

THANK YOU to the advocates who‘ve worked so hard to get here. https://t.co/JkcJvNBr72

Virginia Foxx on House floor: "Madam Speaker, I ask for the gentleman's words to be taken down! I am not a hypocrite." Max Rose: "With all due respect, ma'am, you are." Foxx: "Madam Speaker!" https://t.co/YaGEwph6R0

Quoted @FenitN

At anti-D.C. statehood press conference, Senator Steve Daines (R-Mt.) urges lawmakers to "go out to where the real people are at across the country and ask them where they think."

One of the ways the GOP articulates their racism today is their idea that some citizens are “real” people and others aren’t. This is the argument they make against DC statehood: that this largely Black community doesn’t qualify as “real people.” So, who is a “real” person? 🤔 https://t.co/QzyKjH6UGF

Some of the advertising against Oklahoma's Medicaid expansion measure centered @AOC, warning that "radicals like" her would get "more control over Oklahoma's health care." The measure passed, which I believe makes AOC the biggest health insurer in Oklahoma. https://t.co/xLG3tbgMGY

How’s that “anti-AOC” advertising going, Oklahoma GOP? Oh, it ended with voters supporting Medicaid expansion? Nice. 😊 https://t.co/Xkcw7PeiCJ

When you speak truth to power, power fights back. Lobbyists & conservatives have been pouring millions of dollars against our sisterhood’s re-election campaigns. Why? Because we’re effective. Join the Squad Victory Fund to protect the fight for justice: https://t.co/qcIJN79JPH

Scoop: A dozen lawmakers have signed onto the hotly debated letter spearheaded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that calls for placing conditions on aid to Israel if it moves forward with plans to unilaterally annex parts of the West Bank. AIPAC condemned it. https://t.co/xsUpkX5m3Q

Israel's annexation of occupied territory would be a disaster for international law, self-determination, freedom and equality. I stand with @AOC and House progressives. We cannot allow U.S. tax dollars to be used to violate Palestinians' human rights. https://t.co/UkrTcWhHvy

I had no idea Carl Reiner was on a path to being a sewing machine repairman until his brother told him about a free New Deal acting class. What a different country we could have if we wanted to spend our money on stuff like that instead of death machines. https://t.co/5lrfja80Lq https://t.co/XyZf8YoOFz

Remember this from @AOC? This is the same company that is now price-gouging its coronavirus drug. AOC to Gilead CEO: The list price [for Truvada for PrEP] is almost $2,000 in the US. Why is it $8 in Australia? https://t.co/x0ogHaaWw4

Hey all, note for transparency: yday I quote-tweeted someone noting that we pay interns a living wage. It has since been brought to my attn that multiple survivors are speaking up about this individual. My heart breaks for them, and I am deleting the quote tweet in solidarity.

If you don’t know what the Community Reinvestment Act is and why we need to protect it, listen to @AOC. Then tell your representative to support #HJRes90. Here’s @civilrightsorg’s letter explaining its importance: https://t.co/ssXN97YXUD https://t.co/ZbXLpmoApp

NEW: hours after @AOC called on @CorrectionNYC to fire officers involved in Layleen Polanco's death @NYCMayor announces that 17 uniformed staffers will be charged, including three COs and one Captain suspended w/o pay immediately. The department waited over a year to take action.

Two years ago today, I went from waitress and organizer to winning a Congressional primary while outspent 10-1. Every day since I’ve tried to do right by working families & the movement that made it happen. Corrupt interests haven’t had a good night’s sleep since😉 Thank you 💜 https://t.co/5Yv1jYDEB5

How does justice play a role in the Green New Deal? @AOC explains. https://t.co/SDxCTwAZG9 https://t.co/4GG7GWk7T3

Rep. Ayanna Pressley: "Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people. It's time -- pay us what you owe us. Our Black skin is not a crime. It is the beautiful robe of nation-builders." https://t.co/48avufRaif

Our team has been working with artists to reimagine communities into modern day, WPA-style Green New Deal posters. So far we’ve got the Bronx, Queens, Detroit, Boston, Los Angeles, & San Juan 🇵🇷 You can find them at https://t.co/FChYMy3UrE https://t.co/92lM2W6PzN
