I'm shaking thinking about all the new ways that anti-science Republicans are going to try to stand in the way of getting our kids vaccinated. Just tragic how one major political party has decided to stand in the way of ending the pandemic.
WASHINGTON (AP) — White House details plan for 28M children to get COVID-19 vaccine in pharmacies, doctors' offices, as soon as next month.

If scenes like this sicken you, then you need to help us pass the Build Back Better bill. The legislation has $5 billion for community anti-gun violence programs - in order to fund intervention programs with at-risk youth that are proven to work to curb gun crime.
This is the reality of gun violence in America in 2021: A high school football game in Alabama was interrupted by a mass shooting at the stadium — and cell phone footage shows the scene as the players either fled or sheltered on the field.

Senator Cruz’s objection to Barbara Leaf has NOTHING to do with her qualifications. It’s just more political grandstanding that leaves America vulnerable without a top diplomat in the Middle East.
Scoop with @AndrewDesiderio: @tedcruz has put a hold on @SafiraLeaf, Biden's pick to lead State's Near East bureau. Continues his nominations fight and opens new policy disagreement front politico.com/news/2021/10/19…

Last week I completed my annual Walk Across Connecticut. It was amazing. I hope you’ll watch this short video. #WalkCT

The Verdugo AB changed everything. Urquidy, after sailing through a 1-2-3 first, opened the 2nd by striking out Bogaerts on 3 pitches, then got to 0-2 on Verdugo. Verdugo fouled off 5 of the next 8 pitches, walked, Martinez doubled, Renfroe walked, Vázquez singled, Sox up, 1-0.

This is what Trump has done to the Republican Party.
Over the words “integrity, honesty, and respect,” they spray-paint this. If you want integrity, honesty, and respect among local officials, support the Democrats on your ballot.

I was a 29 year old new Chairman of the legislature's Health Committee, and Shawn Lang took me under her wing to show me what true compassion for the state's most vulnerable patients looks like. She was a friend and a fighter. I will miss her so much. courant.com/news/connecticut…

Fair point.
A U.S. Senator complaining about something taking too long. When are you going to pass infrastructure, voting rights, etc.? Any day now, right? 🧐

Hey Ben. Agree - these games have been awesome. I will watch each pitch no matter how long the game is. But I’m a diehard, lifelong baseball fan. I just think the length of games, and the late finishes, are part of the reason fans today are prioritizing other sports.
Hey Chris. I wish the games were longer. I was on the edge of my seat for 4 hours. I’m also not the only one because MLB viewership was up big time this year and the playoff viewership is higher than it’s been in years

It’s just amazing MLB refuses to do anything meaningful to shorten the length of games. Both Red Sox-Astros games were over 4 hours. This is killing interest in the game. Nobody has four hours each day to spend on baseball.

It just saddens me to watch the Republican Party morph into one giant trolling exercise. There are no ideas. No core principles. It’s just a seek and destroy enterprise now.

Don’t let the headlines or the day to day up and down drama of legislating impact your advocacy. When it comes to enacting climate legislation, failure is not an option. Keep fighting.
