While Republicans refuse to lift a finger to help tens of millions of Americans struggling in this economic crisis, it's no surprise that independent economists have concluded that as president, @JoeBiden will create millions more jobs than Donald Trump. moodysanalytics.com/-/media/articl…
We can fight Donald Trump and Republicans’ attacks on our democracy.
The first step is making sure they lose in a landslide: Check your voter registration. Mail in your ballot. Vote early.
Together, we’ll protect our people and our democracy.
Change never comes easy—and no one knows that better than @AdyBarkan.
I keep a picture of Ady, his son Carl, and me on my bookshelf. Their smiles are a reminder that no one knows what could happen tomorrow, so we embrace life as it comes and make purpose where we can. twitter.com/AdyBarkan/stat…
Americans need help now—yet the Trump administration is sitting on their hands, pointing fingers, and waiting for this recession to magically disappear.
We simply cannot afford four more years of this chaos.
Refusing to peacefully transition power to a leader elected by the people. Urging states to “get rid of” ballots and silence voters. These are the tactics of a fascist.
Democracy as we know it is on the line.
This fight is a measure of who we are as a country. We don’t just need to win—we need to win big. Thanks for chatting with me about the future of our democracy, @billyeichner!
Now let’s do this together: ElizabethWarren.com
Over 6 months into this pandemic and 200,000+ lives lost, the Trump administration has yet to come up with a national plan to protect our people and save our economy. We can’t afford another minute of this incompetence and cruelty—let alone 4 more years.
Breonna Taylor should be alive today.
This decision is a disgrace.
We need accountability for the officers who killed Breonna. And we need to fundamentally remake a criminal justice system that endangers Black lives with impunity. twitter.com/AP/status/1308…
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a woman who never let any man silence her. The most fitting tribute to her is to refuse to be silenced, and to name exactly what Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are trying to do: Steal another Supreme Court seat.
Massachusetts: You have a chance to vote YES on ranked-choice voting this year.
Ranked-choice voting helps make sure the candidate who the most people want to see win, wins! It’s that simple.
@maura_healey and I explain how it works:
Stealing another seat on the United States Supreme Court is a desperate attempt by Donald Trump and Republicans to impose their will on the American people—a will that doesn’t represent who we are or the country we want to be.
We need to do more than just send Trump packing. We need to elect bold leaders who will fix our broken systems after he's gone. That's why I’ve endorsed over 100 incredible candidates at all levels of office—from City Treasurer to State Senate to Congress:
Trump and Senate Republicans are going to do everything they can to ram through a new Supreme Court Justice with just weeks to go until the election. So we have to do everything we can to hold them to the same standard they set out in 2016: No confirmation before inauguration.
We’re still in the throes of a global pandemic with no end in sight. We still don’t know the long term health impacts of COVID-19. We simply can't afford to let Donald Trump and Republicans ram through a Supreme Court justice who will gut health care for millions of Americans.
Don’t forget to tune in today at 4 PM ET! I’ll be talking with @billyeichner about what’s at stake in November—and what we can all do in the next 43 days to elect Democrats and protect our democracy. #TeamJoeTalks
Donald Trump’s response to this time of crisis has been both incompetent and morally bankrupt.
Our president has a duty to protect the nation—and he has failed on all fronts.
We were at the Supreme Court last night to grieve, but not to despair.
There is too much at stake going forward: Health care for millions of Americans. Dreamers. The right to join a union. Our very democracy is on the line.
With voting already underway, let us be crystal clear: No Supreme Court confirmation before the inauguration.
Republicans are doing everything they can to cling to power. Help take back the Senate by donating to these candidates running to flip red seats: secure.actblue.com/donate/wd-ew-s…
Our grief is real, but we cannot slip into despair. We simply can't afford it—too much is at stake.
Today’s the day to honor Ruth with action. Today’s the day to channel grief into change. Today's the day to dig a little deeper and buckle up for an uphill fight.
Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump will try to name a new Justice with just weeks to the election. This is the last desperate gasp of a corrupt Republican leadership that doesn’t reflect the views or values of our people.
Let me be clear: No confirmation before the inauguration.
Fighting for progress is hard, and sometimes it can seem like our labor is in vain.
But we can’t back down. We can’t lose hope.
We must persist until we’ve built an America where our basic human rights aren’t just upheld, but enshrined.
Now is not the time for cynicism or hopelessness. There is and continues to be political possibility to preserve our democracy & move forward.
It will require each & every one of us, from the streets to the Senate, to grow in courage, strength, and strategy. But it is possible.
We have to keep fighting.
To take back the presidency. To flip the Senate. To protect our democracy. To preserve and expand justice for all.
To honor Ruthie’s most fervent wish. twitter.com/nprpolitics/st…
I had the opportunity to talk climate change with Senator @ewarren yesterday. Climate change is the biggest issue facing our planet. We need to win back the senate so that we can work to fix this issue. Please visit PerkinsForLA.com and chip in $5 to help out.
The 100 richest Americans have made more than $300 billion during the COVID-19 crisis.
Now, in the middle of a pandemic and economic crisis, Donald Trump wants to give them a $29 billion tax break.
Let that sink in.
During this crisis, we need leaders who are willing to take bold action to protect lives and livelihoods.
I'm glad to see @PhilMurphyNJ and New Jersey take this step to enact a more just tax policy—and help ensure that the wealthy pay their fair share. nytimes.com/2020/09/17/nyr…
