The 4th monthly payments of the Biden #ChildTaxCredit are being sent out. This tax cut, secured by @HouseDemocrats in the American Rescue Plan, will make historic strides in cutting child poverty & bolstering local economies to #BuildBackBetter.
In 2021, Americans have already experienced:
🌡 The hottest summer on record
🔥 Monster wildfires and brutal heat waves
🌨 Over $100 billion in damage from extreme weather events
We need #ClimateActionNow.
The full faith & credit of the US can't be questioned.
Tonight, House Dems vote to extend the debt ceiling, avoiding the 1st ever Republican-manufactured default. But this is just a short-term fix. It's irresponsible that Senate Rs won't join us in passing a long-term solution.
A federal judge temporarily blocked a near-total ban on abortion in Texas - the toughest such law in the country - in a challenge brought by President Biden's administration after the Supreme Court had allowed it to go into effect reut.rs/3Fplhfh
Just saying ‘never forget’ isn't enough – we need to show up and support 9/11 first responders.
Proud to have helped retired NYPD Officer Bauer secure the cash he's earned through the #911VCF so he can battle his 9/11 related illness and spend more time with his family.
Republicans racked up trillions of dollars of debt under Trump but are now demanding American families bear the devastation of a debt default.
Addressing the debt limit is not about future spending – it is about meeting obligations the government has already incurred.
The United Against Hate movement is built around a simple idea: it’s easy to hate people we don’t know. When neighbors of different races, religions & nationalities move past indifference to investment in one another, we knock out the legs of intolerance & build a better future.
This afternoon @POTUS stood with @SpeakerPelosi and 95% of the @HouseDemocrats and said the opposite: that his historic vision for America first requires a Build Back Better reconciliation deal. That’s the way a bipartisan infrastructure bill will win the votes to become law.
Congress is facing an important choice: do we keep an economy that serves corporations and the ultra-wealthy – or do we finally give middle-class families a fair shot?
This is our time to not just build back, but #BuildBackBetter.
The #BuildBackBetter agenda will transform our country for generations to come by
💰 delivering historic tax cuts to the middle-class
📈 providing greater tax fairness for small businesses
If that doesn't give you hope for the future of our economy, I don't know what will.
This is your reminder that @POTUS & @HouseDemocrats fought for the expanded #ChildTaxCredit, help for restaurants, funding for first responders, record economic growth, and other transformational benefits in the #AmericanRescuePlan.
What did the GOP do? They voted against it.
Let's not forget Leader McConnell has voted to increase or suspend the debt ceiling 32 times in the past – including 3 times under Trump. But now he and the rest of the Congressional GOP refuse, risking catastrophic default.
Democrats are committed to keeping the government open and ensuring we pay our bills on time. RT if you agree: it’s time for Senate Republicans to do the right thing for the country and join Democrats in preventing a catastrophic default.
