The first GOP Tax Scam added $2 trillion to the national debt – sticking our children with the bill for massive tax breaks for Big Pharma, Wall Street and the wealthiest 1 percent.

Today, House Republicans are pushing #TaxScam2: their cynical scheme to make tax breaks for billionaires permanent – handing tens of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthiest 1 percent every year.

While Republicans enrich their wealthy donors, Democrats are fighting FOR THE PEOPLE:
*Lowering your health care costs and prescription drug prices
*Increasing your pay through strong economic growth by rebuilding America
*Cleaning up corruption to make Washington work for you

🤪This rant-fest by Trump on Puerto Rico is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs even for him!

💥Even the #CultureOfCorruption GOP can't support pretending that nearly 3,000 people died in Hurricane Maria in September 2017...can they? Fox can.

🥴This is wacko!

📞Call him out!
🤥This is beyond #LieGate!

Don't believe Stewart is a corporate shill?

Look at the numbers 👇

@ShireenGhorbani has my vote.


Letter: Shireen Ghorbani cares about Utah problems; Chris Stewart is a corporate shill, via @sltrib…
57.6% from pacs...

Only 3.7% from small donors.
No wonder Stewart voted to take away health insurance.

No wonder he wants to open our public lands to drilling.

No wonder he voted to give the rich a tax break.

No wonder he voted to undo bank regulations.

Stewart has been bought and sold.

#disinformation alert! 🚨

The right's latest talking points are false claims that #Kavanaugh's young children were harassed by Democrats as they were escorted out of the hearing.

This is quickly and easily debunked by a simple Google search. 1/8
A Fox News opinion peice expressed dismay that the 2 young girls were upset by the lack of civility shown to their father.

It doesn't say the children were harassed.

Their mother chose to remove them when Dems addressed the lack of transparency.
2/8 📰
The first result that said the children were harassed was a Reddit post, which contained a screenshot of a tweet. 3/8 #Kavanaugh

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies #CultureOfCorruption #Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
30,100: North Dakotans that would have lost health coverage by 2026 under the #GOP House-passed #Trumpcare bill./3 #ProtectOurCare #CultureOfCorruption #GOPGreed

Dear Anon Op-Ed Writer,
There’s NO “Inside Resistance”.
There is an “Inside Sneaky Coup D’etat”.
You’re either delusional or trying to save yourself by conning the public!
There are laws that all Americans are required to obey.
If a citizen breaks the law there are consequences. If you do the crime, you do the time.
Only very young children are unaware of natural consequences. If you consider yourself the adult in the room, please reconsider, you’re not.
If you want a future beyond the current #CultureOfCorruption I suggest you resign and explain publicly and honestly why you are resigning. Then and only then will you be considered an honest agent and perhaps a patriotic hero.

Endangered Rep Cathy McMorris Rodgers open to supporting Jim Jordan for Speaker of the House. Another wrestling coach tied to sex abuse? Really GOP?

Cathy was also there in 2016 when GOP leadership openly discussed Putin paying Trump
Despite Paul Ryan’s declaration that the GOP House leadership was united behind Maj Leader Kevin McCarthy as its next potential speaker, apparently one member is not. That's @cathymcmorris She does not work for the people.

@lisa4congress is the answer
Maybe Lisa Brown is a little dangerous. Why? Because she will work for the people.

A week ago I was tired and frustrated cause I was focusing on the wrong things. I was resisting but also thinking about things like why xyz didn't follow me or why they didn't RT me or do I make an impact

I took time to reflect and refocus. Here is what I learnt. /1
It's not about me stupid
It's about the children pulled away from families, 528 of whom are still not reunited and it is unclear if/when they will be reunited. #FamiliesBelongTogether #chi
It's #WhatsAtStake for women's rights, LGBTQ rights, voter rights, Roe v Wade, ACA, health care for pre-existing conditions, Medicaid...

For Me

The worse thing that has happened is what @SenateMajLdr has done to the Senate

Historically the Senate was designed to provide equal representation for each state 2 reps per state, A voice for the Minority option

This was done to promote bipartisanship

[Thread 1/2]
... Harry Reid did start this erosion. Now Mitch has really destroyed the principles of our founding documents

His BS with the Supreme Court, & disregarding the filibuster is very bad for Democracy especially in a time of hyper partisanship

Now more then ever we need the upper Chamber to embrace bipartisanship and oversight

Our democracy is being challenged like never before and the @GOP is allowing it to be eroded

GOP spent millions of tax dollars trying to dig up "something" on Clinton only to enshrine Trump, a public disgrace & criminal.

Between "journalists," the GOP controlled House, Putin & Republican operatives, think how much they spent to bring her down

Clinton had approval at 68% before Bernie Sanders alone spent $208M against her.

Negative campagins work.

Sophisticated Russian criminal active measures work even better.

Critical thinking = Russians changed the outcome of the EC. She won the vote

2016 was like Trump University - a scam and a fraud


Republicans were in on it.

They should be forced to concede the White House.

Dead silence, then maniacal laughter of 1 woman when Orrin Hatch makes a fool of himself calling millions of people w pre-existing conditions stupid, dumbasses for supporting the life-saving Obamacare

Not just a #CultureOfCorruption these people are mean
Age / term limits ... not the problem.

Decency, policy positions, critical thinking empathy, party

A new, young Senator saying this (like 41-year-old Tom Cotton) is just as bad.

It has nothing to do with age or term limits.

A young new Senator could be just as bad or worse.
The people remaining in the Republican party belong to a #CultureOfCorruption

Republicans are not public servants.

They use government office to line their own pockets at our expense. They no longer work for the people.

The Republican #CultureOfCorruption stretches from California to North Carolina.

Laura Riddick, a Republican first elected in 1996 & re-elected most recently in 2016, pleads guilty to 6 counts of embezzling from the Wake Co Register of Deeds while she led the office - $926K
As we watch a parade of GOP criminals, remember not all public servants are corrupt.

Amy Kloubucher, Sally Yates, Tim Kaine, Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Liz Warren, Chris Murphy, Joe Biden, Joe Kennedy know what public service is about - us, all of us
Howard Dean, Senator Shaheen, Cory Booker, Patty Murray, Tammy Baldwin, Adam Schiff, Beto ORourke, Sharice Davids, Stacey Abrams, Amy McGrath ... so many people of integrity fighting hard to make a positive difference on heathcare, wages, equality, infrastructure, Social Sec

It is a busy news day but don't ignore this development. Duncan Hunter and his wife have been indicted for misuse of $250,000 in campaign funds & falsifying campaign records. Democrats should be targeting California's 50th congressional district.
Note: @ACampaNajjar is the proud son of a single working mom, San Diegan, former Dept. of Labor official, small business owner, & he's running for congress in CA's 50th District. Let's help him win the seat & fight the GOP #CultureOfCorruption
Democrats: Let's help @ACampaNajjar win Ca-50, currently held by Duncan Hunter who was indicted for misuse of $250,000 in campaign funds & falsifying campaign records. Upgrade the corrupt Republican-led Congress with Democrats like Ammar.

Today’s guilty verdicts against Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort & guilty plea by Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, are further evidence of the rampant #CultureOfCorruption & criminality at the heart of Trump’s inner circle.
Cohen’s admission of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in hush money “at the direction of the candidate” to influence the 2016 election shows @realDonaldTrump’s claims of ignorance to be far from accurate, & places him in even greater legal jeopardy.
These convictions are further proof that Special Counsel Mueller’s team & prosecutors in New York are conducting thorough & professional investigations, which must be permitted to continue free from interference. #FollowTheFacts

Yesterday, @maddow reported on leaked audio of @DevinNunes at a closed fundraiser, a window into the culture of corruption & cover-up in the GOP Congress. Key admissions:

1. Despite Nunes’ constant attacks on the special counsel, he admits that collusion IS, in fact, a crime.
@maddow @DevinNunes 2. @DevinNunes is openly selling the House GOP to big donors as crucial to covering up and protecting @realDonaldTrump from the Russia investigation.

"If Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones."
@maddow @DevinNunes @realDonaldTrump 3. @DevinNunes considers the Kavanaugh nomination as intertwined with the cover-up in Congress.

With a Member of House Leadership nodding along, he says they're ready to launch a full assault on the investigation—but they want Trump’s hand-picked SCOTUS nominee confirmed first.
