Any society that denies it's citizens air, food, water or healthcare due to a lack of ability to pay, has failed.

Imagine poor and brown kids going hungry and failing to thrive educationally as a result. THAT is a conservative Utopia.

I’m angry the Build Back Better Act is getting pared back. But, in the alternative universe where a Republican holds Manchin’s seat, we’re in week 3 of a government shutdown and Ted Cruz vows to filibuster the bill reopening the government until Biden agrees to slash Medicaid.

PAY ATTENTION: Hungary is in the news because Americans on the right have long admired Orbán’s nationalism and centering of Christianity, while the fact that Hungary continues to hold elections enables them to pretend that the country remains a democracy. heathercoxrichardson.substac…

You can have a silent filibuster and no republic or a speaking filibuster and a republic. It’s not complicated.
