Can we stop and have a little perspective on Joe Biden's first 2 years a President for a moment? Sincerely? When he took office, the former POTUS had just attempted a coup, 10 million people were unemployed, 4,000 people a day were dying of Covid, and the vaccines were behind.

Biggest climate action by any country ever. I can think of at least two dozen people who can credibly claim to have saved this bill along the way. Thanks to everyone who had a part in this, no matter how large or small. This thing was not inevitable - it was a miracle.

Not a single Republican in Congress voted to cap prescription drug expenses at $2,000/year for seniors on Medicare. Democrats took on Big Pharma and won.

Thank you President Biden @potus and Democrats!!
One of the most productive stretches in recent Senate history: 鉁匱he Inflation Reduction Act 鉁匔HIPS and Science 鉁匬ACT Act 鉁匞un Safety 鉁匩ATO treaty 鉁匨ore judicial confirmations And we鈥檙e going to keep fighting!
Here you go.
Florida is forcing a 16-year-old girl to have a baby because they say she is not mature enough to have an abortion. Let that sink in.
Another sad story for women in the United States. Forced birth, no choice. Women CAN choose to vote in November. VOTE BLUE to end this madness.
A Florida court has denied a parentless 16-year-old permission to have an abortion because she's not "mature" enough. Previously, they denied a 17-year-old an abortion because her GPA was too low. The state is forcing these teens to give birth. jezebel.com/florida-court-de鈥

This is a BFD.
The Inflation Reduction Act is now law. Giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower prescription drug prices. Ensuring wealthy corporations pay their fair share in taxes. And taking the biggest step forward on climate in our history.

BDE vs BFD. That鈥檚 US politics today in a nutshell: the big dick energy wing nuts like Kari Lake celebrate in Trump vs the big fucking deals that Joe Biden and the Dems are getting done.

The plight of women in the United States of America, because of Republicans.
Extremely dark abortion news is just pouring out today. Now a Louisiana woman says she's being forced to either carry a fetus to term that is missing its skull and part of its head, or travel to Florida for the nearest legal abortion. jezebel.com/louisiana-woman-鈥

I think the legislation is pretty much right smack dab in the middle of American interests &objectives. Reducing prescription drug costs? Making sure everyone pays their fair share of taxes? Protecting our homes and families and grandkids from extreme weather and a grim future?

Please read the accomplishments of the current President and Dem majority. Everyone will get some level of benefit & it's all good for our country. Let's talk about this for a bit instead of tfg.
I feel like the media is having a hard time metabolizing the fact that this congress has been historically productive. And acknowledging the size of these accomplishments, and the degree of difficultly, - it鈥檚 just hard to do accurately without sounding a bit left leaning.

Schumer before Biden signs the Inflation Reduction Act: "For anyone who thought Washington was broken and couldn't do big things, Democrats have shown real change is possible."

You know how @POTUS has put together such a great record? By ignoring virtually everything that dominates media coverage, the cage match of modern politics & just doing the work, identifying opportunities and seizing them. It's a blue collar nose-to-the-grindstone success story.

Trump LOST the House, Presidency AND Senate. Banks cut ties. Accountants quit. PGA said no to his club, so he went with the Saudis. Brand is worthless. Company, CFO indicted. Thrown off Twitter and FB. Platform failing. Owes everyone. Sued by everyone. Wait - there's more ...

Extremist MAGA Republicans are working to ban abortion nationwide. Democrats want to codify Roe. The choice on the ballot could not be more clear.

Honestly, not having had a cold or a flu in ~3 years has made masking worthwhile for me.

This is one of the longest monologues I've done for a while but do take out 10 mins of your time to watch: On @MSNBC, I tallied all of the Trump/Trumpworld lies and excuses in the wake of the FBI search...and debunked them all. Please do watch and share:
