Just heard from a student debtor who took out $33k in student loans. Over the years, she's paid $20k. Her balance TODAY is nearly 80k. This is a debt trap.

OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro is SO bad that @MichelleEllner literally made a game out of listing the reasons he must resign. Do you have more reasons why Almagro has got to go? Share your reasons on Twitter with #AlmagroRenuncia & #AlmagroResign!

I want you to think about this. The life expectancy of wealthy people in this country is roughly 15 years longer than it is for poor people. Got that? Poverty in America should not be a death sentence.

President Biden is currently sleepwalking into total political destruction. The lack of urgency in the face of multiple overlapping crises and a collapsing political system will be his doom.

Relentless @chrislhayes again calls out Biden Admin for freezing $9bn Afghan currency reserves, plunging country into “unfathomable” crisis: “It doesn’t cost us a cent… Releasing the Afghanistan government’s money could mean the difference between life and death for millions.”

NEW VIDEO: 78 years ago this week, Franklin Roosevelt delivered the most radical speech any president has ever given. He proposed a total reorganization of American society – and found that it was incredibly popular. Harvey Kaye, historian of the American left, explains.

This winter, one million Afghan children could die from starvation. 95 percent of Afghans do not currently have enough to eat. That's because the United States seized Afghanistan's cash reserves, cut off aid, and imposed sanctions. Is this what "caring" for Afghans looks like?

Maine’s Democratic governor, Janet Mills, killed a bill that would have given farm workers in the state—which relies heavily on its agricultural industries—the right to unionize. An absolute disgrace.
