Gas in Belgium is $8.06 . . . where Joe Biden is not President. Gas in Denmark is $9.17 . . . where Joe Biden is not President. Gas in Hong Kong is $10.90 . . . where Joe Biden is not President. Remember that when you fill up.

browardprogress: RT @UnrigOurEconomy: 26 billionaires paid only a fraction of the taxes the average American owes, according to an analysis of IRS data by @4TaxFairness. American workers pay their fair share in taxes. Billionaires should do the same. businessinsider.com/26-billi…

Dear Arizona, This thought is consuming me: the three most important races this year for our State to preserve democracy & the right to vote are: Governor, Attorney General & Sec. of State. DO NOT VOTE FOR ANY CANDIDATE WHO WON'T CONFIRM THAT 2020 WAS NOT STOLEN. Save democracy.

I am running to fill the seat vacated by VP Harris and for a full six-year term in the Senate. Every day between now and June 7th is election day. Vote for me twice and I’ll continue to double down on my commitment to the people of California!

Arizona Republican Party wants to throw out the way 90% of voters cast a ballot (& Alan Dershowitz is on GOP's side). Election expert warns it could be 'catastrophic.' bit.ly/3yGltpM

Today, a lot of people are learning about me and my story for the first time. I'm Austin Davis, I'm the son of a hairdresser and a union bus driver who represents my hometown of McKeesport in the state house. I'm the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania.

When 192 Republicans vote against funding to fix the baby formula shortage, they are telling you they don’t care about the health of babies or actual governance. But you already knew that if you’ve been paying attention.

192 Republican Representatives voted to keep baby formula out of the stomachs of babies who need it.
231-192: House passes legislation providing $28 million in emergency spending to the FDA to address the baby formula shortage. 12 Republicans joined all Democrats in voting Yes. The bill now heads to the Senate.

I'm Josh Shapiro — and I'm the Democratic nominee for Governor of Pennsylvania. Our opponent wants to ban abortion with no exceptions and attended the January 6th insurrection. Retweet this and follow us to help us grow our grassroots team — and win in November.

One of the best things we could do to support democracy is to have publicly funded elections. @chrislhayes #inners #EndCitizensUnited

A plan by Republican Senator Rick Scott would increase taxes on 70% of the American public and put Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid on the chopping block every five years. Under my plan, no one making less than $400,000 will see their taxes increase.

Give Ukraine what they need to win and rebuild. Putin needs nothing. As Snyder says, he controls the media in Russian and will make up any story he likes. Ukrainians are living in reality.
Replying to @TimothyDSnyder
Ending the war means thinking more about the Ukrainian people and their future, and and worrying less about problems that Putin does not in fact have. 17/17
