A 10-year-old girl was denied abortion services in Ohio. 10. So no, I’m not ok with the Democratic Party’s response federally simply being “vote in November.” Residents in my state can’t wait till November and 10-year-olds can’t vote. Here’s what they should be doing. 1/

Workers in this country are organizing against outrageous levels of corporate greed. We will only succeed by standing together. That’s why next weekend, I’ll be in Philadelphia and Boston to rally with @Teamsters Pres. Sean O’Brien and @afa_cwa Pres. Sara Nelson. Join us there.

I live in the city with the highest rate of child poverty among big cities in America. One in two children in Cleveland live below the poverty line. There’s no celebration until there’s help for my neighbors.
I just don't understand this wing of the big tent Democratic Party. How about just celebrate the win today. And focus on getting 2 more Senate Dems elected to address child poverty.

Joe Manchin was against Build Back Better because it didn’t have any GOP support. He ripped social programs out of the reconciliation bill, allowing child poverty to rise 41% in January. He then helped write the Inflation Reduction Act. It got 0 GOP votes in the House OR Senate

NO MORE STOCK BUYBACKS AND OTHER BULL SHIT GREED TACTICS.
My thoughts go out to all the Gannett journalists being laid off today. Company did a $100M stock buyback in February and pays their CEO $7.5M a year but somehow struggles to afford the journalists already on its payroll.

Without the movement for a GND, there would not be an IRA. Five years ago, most people would not believe that Congress would deliver a climate and jobs plan— but we did. That belief, and ordinary people coming together to organize against all odds created this moment. 🧵

It’s on us to make the Inflation Reduction Act the smallest climate bill of the next decade. It’s time for a Green New Deal 🌍🌱

Simple: those who are committed to democracy must expand the Supreme Court and abolish the Electoral College. It’s a big structure change, but it’s easily done if people have the political will to do so.
Serious question: how does American democracy survive when in times of controversy or crisis you have 100s, if not 1000s, of public figures willing to publicly and repeatedly lie about basic demonstrable facts; and carry on lying even after they’re confronted with those facts? 🤷🏽‍♂️

It’s important to acknowledge what led to Trump to avoid descending further into fascism.
You couldn’t just say the first sentence without adding in the rest

If Trump is guilty of espionage, he must be held accountable. If he is guilty and held accountable, neoliberals still need to put forth policy that helps the poor and working poor. If not, we’ll end up with more fascists like Trump.

Millions of Canadians rely on the payday loan industry to keep afloat during economic hardship. But astronomical interest rates cause many borrowers to get stuck in a cycle of debt they can’t keep up with. The solution: postal banking. jacobin.com/2022/08/postal-b…
