@TonyStark
Every time I read this kind of article by a Republican, I remind everyone that it was these guys who added an additional $7 TRILLION to our National Debt just in 2017.  It's really insulting when they talk about the damage being foisted on our children and grandchildren. Their tax break was for the top 1% and they do nothing to help future generations. All they do is destroy things for them in advance.

You can’t make America great again by selling everyone a red hat and charging the government $4 for a glass of water at your fleabag hotel. Until we pony up and invest in the nuts and bolts of economic activity (like roads and electric grids) we will be as deficient economically as we were politically on January 6.

Everything in Biden's plan is absolutely necessary. Take back the tax break to the 1%.

Democrats and Independents in the Senate, get this done without Republicans or find the few that are willing to work with you. Pass #CovidRelief

Mostly united over covid relief, Democrats face divisions over Biden’s massive second economic plan-

@RobertG
Thanks, Robert. That adds and explains it very well.

I work with governments, very often local ones, on utilities and infrastructure this whole thing makes me sick.

There are only a couple of places in Texas that are taking care of the people properly and its horrible it came to this for more people to know.

Happy Presidents Day!

I'm so grateful and relieved that we have a human being in the White House now with some decency, compassion, and humility. We have a President who wants to get policy accomplished that will help all Americans.

Leave a message by phone or by your preferred method for your U.S. Senators and House Representative today. Give this some support. They need us pushing them.

"I support President Biden’s 'American Rescue Plan'" is all you need to say. It's important.

What does everyone think of Wandavision 📺 ? I love it. It seem to be letting us in,slowly, to the post Endgame world. I really don't believe Wanda is a villain as they are hinting. I think someone else is making her do this. Am I far off?

Whether or not 7 Senate Republicans and all Senate Democrats stood with the truth today, Americans know what happened. Americans know that the other 43 Republican Senators stood against our own country. They witnessed the facts on January 6. Trump incited a violent attempt to overturn our election.

The outcome today is not a Republican win.

Republicans created a monster. Now they worship the power they think that monster brings. They can't let go.

We have the one way to fix this. It's the one we've been successfully using - our votes. Keep using it. End the party of Trump.

71% of Americans, including nearly half of all Republicans, believe former President Trump was at least partially responsible for starting the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol, according to Reuters-Ipsos poll reuters.com/article/us-usa-tru

He protected Senators and Congress people from insurrectionists, he deserves it, even though some of the same people he protected encouraged the insurrectionists and don't want to hold the main instigator accountable.

The Senate on Friday passed legislation to award Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal for his actions responding to the violent Jan. 6 riot.

Can we all agree that fomenting an insurrection against our government is a high crime and misdemanor? So asked Jamie Raskin, lead House Impeachment Manager. And the answer is "no" according to most Senate Republicans.

And to the Republican voters who think they'll be able to retain their own rights if a minority coup is successful in the future because Republicans fail on accountability now, I have news. History shows you won't be protected, either. #ConvictAndDisqualify

House Democrats conclude Trump impeachment case, warning of potential violence if Republicans refuse to convict:

@TonyStark Abuse of the public trust qualifies. How a bunch of lawyers (more than half of senators) don’t understand this is baffling. Or not, because they only care about their re-election prospects. Also, we now have the likes of Senator Tuberville. Senator Doug Jones, respected prosecutor, held that seat a few months ago.

Good morning Everyone. Whos going to watch the ridiculous defense presentation today? It seems it will be just a whole lot of "whataboutism", denials and lies. They have no other defense. The House managers made an incredibly compelling argument. It's obvious Trump planned and wanted what happened to happen. And he probably wanted much worse to happen.
