Republicans support all Trump frivolous lawsuits but they don’t want you to have the right to sue.

If you want to know why COVID relief is tied up in Congress, one key reason is that Republicans are demanding legal immunity for corporations so they can expose their workers to COVID without repercussions. Dems don’t want you to die for a check. That’s what we’re fighting over.

Fracking is still bad, by the way.

If Amazon workers in Alabama – a strong anti-union state – vote to form a union, it will be a shot heard around the world. If they can negotiate higher wages and better working conditions in the South, it will benefit every worker in America. I strongly support their efforts.

It’s Tuesday before Thanksgiving so you should know that if the minimum wage had increased at the rate of productivity since 1960, it would be $22.50. Instead, it’s $7.25. That's $15.25 per hour that's disappeared from the pockets of low income workers the past 60 years...

You know in the House, when we don’t have the votes to pass something, we work on the bill until we pick up the votes to pass it. That includes GOP votes - & yes, GOP have voted for my leg too. The Senate should try it sometime! People are going hungry as you tweet from vacay.

@Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems not to know there are Democrats in the Senate. Or that Joe Biden (also a Dem) is publicly calling on Senate Dems to continue filibustering COVID relief because he thinks it will help them win Georgia.

With COVID upending life as usual and winter around the corner, we’re going to need each other now more than ever.

“Ms. Tallapragada at Rice was one of several students who said they started their networks based on the advice of Congresswoman  @Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote a 12-page mutual aid manual with the activist Mariame Kaba ( @#HallmarkApologist), and tweeted about it in March.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/23/style/college-mutual-aid-networks.html

"She (Rep. Ocasio-Cortez) knows how to speak to young voters. I trust her that she actually cares about her constituents.

I don't know if Marco Rubio cares ... Hell yeah, I'd go to war with her."

Folks who encouraged young ppl to turn out& vote bc “you can work to influence the coming admin” should be encouraging, not cry division, when they do just that. Lobbyists don’t ever sit back & give admins “a chance.” #1 mistake is thinking our democracy is “set it & forget it”

BREAKING: GSA head, Emily Murphy, has moved to officially begin transition and give president-elect Joe Biden the resources to transition including $6.3 million. Here’s her letter.

Today marks 8 years since my son Jordan was stolen from me. 

Every year, I write a letter to my son. Read below - and remember there are still thousands of families in this country being torn apart every single day from gun violence.

The House doesn’t have filibusters,  @Ted Cruz. We also passed several COVID relief packages to the Senate that not only include >$500 billion, but also prioritize helping real people as opposed to Wall St bailouts the GOP tries to pass off as “relief.” Nice try though 👍🏽

Why is your party filibustering $500 billion in COVID relief? And Joe Biden is cheering them on. Thinking that blocking relief somehow helps Dems win Georgia.

It is also a truly embarrassing indictment of what’s considered “center” politics in the US that objecting to the appointment of an official who helped cover up the murder of a Black child is deemed the “progressive, far left” position.

What is so hard to understand about this? Rahm Emanuel helped cover up the murder of Laquan McDonald. Covering up a murder is disqualifying for public leadership. This is not about the “visibility” of a post. It is shameful and concerning that he is even being considered.

Following progressive backlash against reports that Rahm Emanuel was being considered for transportation secretary, Joe Biden may now be considering the former Chicago mayor for the somewhat less visible position of U.S. trade representative. https://www.chicagobusiness.com/greg-hinz-politics/biden-eyes-rahm-emanuel-us-trade-representative

I know it’s hard, but please consider your loved ones. Stay home if you can. A negative COVID test does not clear one for safe travel. You can be asymptomatic & test positive shortly after. You can get it en route. Don’t spread COVID to parents, loved ones, workers. Stay in!🏡

There were 198,585 new reported coronavirus cases on Friday, setting a new record once again. There were 1,952 reported deaths. The 7-day death average is 1,439, and is now trending steeply upward. The TSA says more than a million people flew through airports on Friday.

Imagine having this instead of a $740,000,000,000 military budget.

People across the country are going hungry, COVID is set to explode, and Mitch McConnell dismissed the Senate last week. I don’t know how these people can sleep at night. I really don’t.
