Gut the filibuster first of course.
Full voting rights for all adult citizens shouldn't be up for debate or negotiable though. Republicans are not in the majority. Ignore this "party" and pass HR1 and HR4.…
Signing a Jim Crow bill into law under a slave plantation. This was intentional and meant as a symbolic reaffirmation of white supremacy and institutional racism.…
Georgia Republicans now have more power to not certify election results they don't like.…
Republicans are not going to accept that they’re historically unpopular and work toward building a broader base and it’s way past time to recognize that fact. They’re going to systematically destroy democracy until it doesn’t matter that they’re detested.

What we witnessed yesterday was a desperate attempt to lock out and squeeze the people out of their own democracy. This effort to silence the voices of Georgians will not stand.…

Republicans understand, like we do, that their right-wing policies are dead to the majority of Americans. Instead of moderating, they've chosen to attack democracy head-on. They will succeed unless we gut the filibuster and crush their jim crow laws and their power in Congress
Jim Crow voting laws have returned. The only way to reverse this is to pass H.R. 1 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.…
Very good news as the largest state in the country will open up vaccine eligibility to everyone in 21 days.…
At this point in Obama's first term, I was getting pretty frustrated and that frustration only grew over the years. Right now I'm quite happy and hopeful with what we can accomplish in the Biden era. Looks like some lessons have been learned the hard way.
President Biden is not playing. We're going to reform the filibuster. If we can do this, we're going to have the most successful liberal presidency in generations and maybe hold on to our congressional majorities.…
It is my sincere hope the Senators Manchin and Sinema are irrelevant in 2022.

"The historians’ views were very much in sync with his own: It is time to go even bigger and faster than anyone expected. If that means chucking the filibuster and bipartisanship, so be it."…
Congrats to Dr Rachel Levine, first out trans person to be Senate-confirmed for a position in the federal government!
No truer statement in our current political era.…
Obviously, this isn't happening any decade soon, but I think Australia's National Agreement on Firearms is a good reference point for bigger reforms than what we're talking about now - which would be great if even that would happen.
The 2nd Amendment should be repealed. It's not sacrosanct. Human life is more important than all of the excuses people come up with to own guns.
Despite my occasional disagreements, what I like about Biden being president as opposed to Warren or Bernie is that moderate Dem Senators are much more willing to listen to him IF he takes the lead. He needs to lead here. Gut the filibuster. Save and reform our democracy.
Reality is that NASA will figure out interstellar space travel by the end of this yr before *any* Republicans, let alone 10, help pass S.1 in the Senate. I think Biden understands this and I'm hopeful we can reform the filibuster. Otherwise, the consequences will be disastrous.…
Absolutely and this should be the starting point tbh.…
We must not lose sight of the fact that our democracy nearly fell. It was way closer than the vote. For democracy to fall, something has to usurp it. A fascist authoritarian leader was just that. Now the GOP is damaged. This makes them dangerous. They will try to usurp it again.

It is such a damning thing that as the quarantine lifts, mass shootings have come back quickly.

Democrats should put common sense gun control on the floor of the Senate tomorrow and force a talking filibuster. Manchin and Biden already said they support that rule change. So do it now. This is the moment, and this is the issue.…

We spent 4 years seeing a manufactured humanitarian disaster at the border & the media wants you to believe it all started w/ the Biden administration which is doing what it can to try & address the crisis after being in office for 60 days. Media is a huge part of the problem.
DC needs statehood and the Senate needs filibuster reform. Let's do both, but of course, the former can't happen without the latter.…
Not my family and friends, but other Americans. This is something I've grappled with a lot these past 4 years, but especially the past year. But it's also not surprising for some of us. A lot of this has always been there. Trump just pulled it out of the caves and energized it.…
Tripping while running up the stairs to Air Force One is embarrassing. Tripping while running the response to COVID is deadly. I would argue the latter story should be a bigger headline.

Yet again, another historic day for the Biden Administration. 👊�…Mi
Let’s be clear about this. The police have a high concentration of white supremacists who are sympathetic to racist terrorists. This shouldn’t be surprising though. The institution’s origins can be traced back to it.…
This is not the time to parse words. Or triangulate. Or tell people what they're experiencing. This is a moment to unequivocally condemn racism and hate. To eliminate barriers to support for those impacted. And to let AAPI people know they are not in this alone. (6/8)

Powerful speech by Senator Warnock on the filibuster.…
👀 Chuck Schumer just said he will put S.1, the “For The People Act” on the Senate floor: “Democracy reform must be a top priority of this Congress.” This is going to blow up the filibuster war when it gets blocked.k

Imagine how much better America would be if instead of making it really hard to vote we made it really hard to get guns.

I do think we have a real chance now of reforming the filibuster in a way that we can actually get our legislation passed.…
The filibuster was created so that slave owners could hold power over our government.

This would take no less than 5 years in the US. 😒…a
Exactly. I've been double masking when I go into stores and will continue to do so even after my second shot of Pfizer next week. Any surges will likely be the new variants too.…
Progressives have racked up an incredible string of victories in the last year, accomplishing things I wouldn't have believed possible even just a few years ago and putting the US on a course for massive reforms. Why can't we just be proud of that and build on it?

"The recall is yet one more example of how well-funded political minorities can thwart democracy, gum up government and undermine confidence."…
That's my president right there 👇🏾and I'm very proud of him. We are proud of him. 🗽…Ail5c
We must pass H.R. 1 — for the people and for the survival of our democracy.…
It isn’t a coincidence that as power is being challenged the violence is growing worse and the abuse of authority more flagrant. This is how power protects itself. Subtle, undetectable means if possible, and by overt intimidation when necessary.
