this shit was DAILY last year. save us the sermons abt the Out Of Control Left
If you're sick and need treatment that costs more than cap, your insurance is basically worthless - which is why the ACA banned caps. twitter.com/topherspiro/st…

Detaining someone at Rikers for 1yr costs $247,000 - we could send a promising student to any 4 year college for that same cost @closerikers

I'm no particular fan of Corbyn's but this is unquestionably right. twitter.com/owenjones84/st…
There also wasn't widespread GOP condemnation when Trump said "2nd Amendment people" might have a way to stop Clinton from picking judges.
Similarly, I haven't heard any liberal activist groups endorse the idea of executing Republicans with bullets dipped in pigs' blood.
Republican officials alleging indirect incitement by liberals didn't say anything when Trump explicitly urged people to beat up protesters.

As a teacher, I have to teach little kids how to do a lockdown drill and how to defend themselves against active shooters. Every year. twitter.com/sppeoples/stat…
People are gonna die without Obamacare. The repeals have been written in secret, voted without scoring or reading the bills.
Distraught woman resident tells Jeremy Corbyn: "Theresa May was here but she didn't speak to any of us. She was s**t."
Appalling that Theresa May went to Grenfell Tower and didn't meet the residents. It's just appalling.
Gingrich claimed one could only understand Obama as a Kenyan anti-colonialist who hated the West. twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/sta…
I hated yesterday. I abhor violence. I hate how uncivil our politics are. But one party has risen to spectacular power by being uncivil.
I'm all for civility. Trump isn't civil. Taking from the needy to give to the rich isn't civil. Stealing a SCOTUS seat isn't civil.
Trump said reporters were enemies of the people. He repeatedly called for violence. You simply cannot be for him and also for civility.
The cost to imprison each California inmate next year.
That's also the cost for one year at Harvard.

They ignored warnings
Next time your 200k a week footballer scores a late winner and you tweet "hero"

Thank you to the Muslim community around #GlenfellTower
for waking up the residents. This must have saved countless lives. twitter.com/mrjammyjamjar3…
The residents of Glenfell Tower begged for help, warned of a catastrophic fire. This is appalling. People need to go to prison for this.
Boris Johnson, as Mayor of London, oversaw drastic cuts to the fire service.When challenged replied 'Get stuffed!' #GlenfellTower #ToriesOut
If the GOP is now serious about addressing violent political rhetoric, that includes NOT MAKING EXCUSES when their president engages in it.
Trump: “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. … Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”
As a white man, I just want to say this shooter does not speak for m---
Oh, WE don't have to do that?
There's a certain comics app that consistently gets press coverage for being "revolutionary" with nothing but vague jargon to explain why.
THE MICK is so often delightful. Only network show I watch (outside of a bunch of PBS... that's a weird combo, right?).
There are just some days when the news is overwhelming. It's ok to tune out for mental health reasons. Telling myself this today.
Just. Revoke. Article. 50.
People blaming the Virginia shooting on Shakespeare (but not easy gun access) have got to be the most ridiculous people on earth.
There was a terrible fire in London.. Would any British person say in the aftermath “this is not the time to discuss fire safety?"
Incredibly disturbed by news of the #CongressShooting
this morning. Wishing all the injured a speedy recovery, including Rep. Steve Scalise.
My heart is with my former colleagues, their families & staff, and the US Capitol Police- public servants and heroes today and every day.

Let's be *clear* on this: Sessions' refusal to answer questions *absent a legal basis for refusal* (e.g., executive privilege) is *illegal*.

Obamacare had 171+ Republican amendments and took forever. The GOP lied and said it was rushed. Yet their rushed Senate bill still secret.
I say to Republicans: If you can’t defend your efforts to throw millions off health care to give huge tax breaks to the top 2%, give it up.
HAMMERHEAD has great sequences the movies should emulate. SERVICE is a smart response to a nationalist, post-Trump U.S.
The Dynamite James Bond comics are fun stuff.
Sessions should be held in contempt of Congress for failing to answer questions and refusing to articulate a reason why.
Sessions can’t simultaneously say Trump isn't claiming executive privilege, and also refuse to answer questions because he might some day.
Every member of congress, every person that works in insurance should read this and feel shame. You have failed the American people. twitter.com/rossbaird/stat…
Today is #LovingDay
, the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that love is color blind. I am a personal beneficiary of this ruling.
Good point: there's no real argument behind GOP anti-health bill. Just "we can do this & want to" & "dying Americans aren't our problem." twitter.com/paulkrugman/st…
About once a day, I see a thread of informed, thoughtful, and open @Spacekatgal
tweets and smile. She'd make an awesome representative!
Is there a single GOP senator who will come on our show and just tell us what's in the bill they're writing behind closed doors?
