The average minimum wage worker would need to work a staggering 79 hours a week to afford a one-bedroom rental in 95 percent of U.S. counties...in the richest country on Earth. If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

The filibuster isn't in the Constitution. A minority of senators rejecting the wants and needs of the majority is arguably unconstitutional. Today’s conservative Supreme Court justices who want to interpret the Constitution according to its original intent should agree.

Who else thinks keeping people housed on Earth is more important than billionaire space tourism?

Reminder: Alexander Hamilton warned about “how much good may be prevented, and how much ill may be produced” if a minority in either house of Congress had “the power of hindering the doing what may be necessary." Just sayin, @Sen_JoeManchin. https://t.co/44Z7cW0q47

Taxing the rich is not radical. Radical is watching U.S. billionaire wealth increase 19-fold over the last 31 years and doing absolutely nothing about it.

Welcome to America, where minimum wage workers can’t afford rent in a single state, and 11 million people are now at risk of being forced out of their homes. Poverty is a policy choice.

Status quo politics won’t end raging inequality. It won’t raise the wage. It won't keep people housed. This is why we need unapologetically bold leaders like @ninaturner in Congress. Ohio-11: Election Day is tomorrow. Vote!

How to protect renters from eviction while getting money to struggling landlords? With a 1% surcharge on incomes over $10 million/yr. Dems should do it today.

If you don’t think Big Tech is an ongoing threat to public health and safety, here’s a reminder that people are more anti-vaccine if they get their Covid news from Facebook than if they get it from Fox News.

In 1890, the filibuster was used to block legislation to provide federal supervision of congressional elections & protect the right of Black Americans to vote. In 2021, the filibuster is again being used to block legislation to protect the right to vote. Not much has changed.

From 2018 through 2020, 39 of the most profitable corporations in America paid nothing in federal income taxes. Don't tell me we can't afford to invest in the American people.

As a former secretary of labor, I ask public-sector unions to support the President’s call for all government employees to be vaccinated. It is in the interest of all workers and of the American public.

We have become so inured to Donald Trump’s fascism that we barely blink an eye when we learn that he tried to manipulate the 2020 election. This is should frighten every American to their core.

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but billionaires who pay nothing in federal income tax shouldn’t get millions in federal contracts to launch themselves into space.

The people need @ninaturner in Congress. I urge the voters of Ohio's 11th District to elect her this Tuesday, August 3rd.

Eviction moratorium expires at midnight. Our movement is growing. Tag your Rep. The House must reconvene and #ExtendTheMoratorium or @POTUS @CDCgov could extend it tonight. We need all hands on deck. @AOC @AyannaPressley

I don’t want to live in an America where billionaires who pay nothing in income taxes rocket out into space, but middle-class families are thrown out of their homes.

Shouldn’t “Just say the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me” trigger 14th amendment section 3, which bars anyone from holding office who “engaged in insurrection” against the US.?

.@ninaturner will stand with me and say that in the richest country on earth, we will not be the only major nation not to guarantee paid family and medical leave.

I’m calling on @POTUS to extend the eviction moratorium. I’m calling on @SpeakerPelosi to reconvene the House for a vote. I’m calling on @SenSchumer to extend the eviction moratorium in the Senate. We control the House, Senate, and White House. We must keep people housed.

Let's get one thing straight: Freedom doesn't mean you have the right to recklessly endanger others by refusing to get vaccinated.

When Chuck Schumer announced senators might need to stick around to vote on must-pass bills like the For the People Act and the COVID-19 recovery package, @SenatorSinema said no, she had vacation plans. Dems have to fight for the people even if that intrudes on their vacations.

Taking summer recess while your constituents face eviction is not just an “atrocity”, it’s also an abdication of responsibility. I canceled my flight home and stayed in DC hoping my colleagues would do the same, but we had to adjourn since some rushed to their summer vacations. https://t.co/8A048JVc5I

I spent all day waiting to vote to extend the eviction moratorium. We are still in the midst of a global pandemic and economic crisis. To not do every last thing in our power to keep people housed is an unconscionable abdication of our duty to the American people.

Elon Musk’s $138 billion in pandemic wealth gains could cover the costs of tuition for 5.5 million community college students AND feed 29 million low-income public school kids. After those expenses, Musk would still be $4 billion richer than he was before Covid. Tax the rich.

The richest 1% don’t report 21% of their income. The real looting in America starts at the very top.
