The real reason Senate Republicans oppose Biden's life-saving COVID relief proposal is they worry that it, plus his plan for jobs and infrastructure, may actually work -- thereby destroying their anti-government mythology and rewarding Democrats in 2022 and beyond.

McConnell says if Dems end the filibuster, he'll keep his Republicans away from voting on anything, including Biden's Covid relief package. Funny enough, Dems never stopped voting on bills when McConnell killed the filibuster to confirm Trump's judges and Supreme Court nominees.

BREAKING: Biden is ordering his Department of Justice to end private prison contracts. This is huge.

What Biden should do next: Expand this order to ICE and all immigration detention facilities. https://t.co/Slgn8jHWpU

All but 5 Republican senators voted today to dismiss impeachment charge as unconstitutional, showing Trump's continued hold over GOP and the need for the vote on his conviction to be secret.

Why is it important to hold Trump enablers accountable now that he's out? Answer: Sarah Huckabee Sanders is already running for Governor of Arkansas. Other Trump lackeys are also eager to seek office.

U.S. billionaire wealth in 2010: $1.5 trillion U.S. billionaire wealth in 2020: $3.9 trillion Federal minimum wage in 2010: $7.25 Federal minimum wage in 2020: $7.25 Does anyone else see a problem with this picture?

Rich that McConnell warns of "immediate chaos" if Dems kill filibuster, when McConnell used "nuclear option" to kill filibuster for Trump's Supreme Court nominations.

When the GOP is in power they stick together to help corporations, but when Dems are in power they always have a @Sen_JoeManchin or @SenatorSinema who make it harder to help average Americans.

Okay, @SenSchumer, now please call a vote to kill the filibuster.

Congratulations to @JanetYellen, the first female Treasury Sec in US history and the most progressive.

The 50 Senate Dems represent over 41.5 million more Americans than the 50 Senate Republicans. But the filibuster gives the Rs power to kill legislation supported by the vast majority. It's undemocratic. It's not in the Constitution. It can be eliminated with 51 votes. End it now.

February vote in Senate on whether to convict Trump should be a secret ballot in order to (1) protect safety of senators, and (2) allow them to vote their consciences. Same protections as jurors in most trials. Senate Dems could do this with 51 votes.

Tax breaks for billionaires are handouts. Tax deductions for the fossil fuel industry are handouts. Subsidies for pharma corporations, tech companies, and defense contractors are handouts. Survival checks and expanded unemployment benefits are not handouts.

So survival checks are too expensive, but a $716,000,000,000 Pentagon budget is no problem?

BREAKING: President Joe Biden has repealed the transgender military ban. This is an incredible victory for our clients and sends a message that transgender people not only belong in our armed services, but in our country.
