This week, House and Senate Democrats are unveiling two bold, ambitious, new planks of our A Better Deal agenda: A Better Deal for Our Teachers and Students, and A Better Deal for Our Democracy.1 #ABetterDeal #BlueWave2018 #DemPartyPlatform
Education is the catalyst for economic mobility, and the engine of progress in our nation. Yet, America’s teachers are underpaid, our schools are underfunded and our children are too often denied the good, public education they need to succeed. 2 #ABetterDeal #Education
Today, teacher’s wages are a full 17 percent lower than comparable workers – forcing nearly one in every five full-time teachers to work a second job to make ends meet. 3 #ABetterDeal #Education #Teachers #DemsWork4USA
Today, House and Senate #Democrats are unveiling A Better Deal for our Teachers and Students. We commit to: 4 #ABetterDeal #Education #Teachers #DemsWork4USA
Dedicating $50 billion to states and school districts to increase teacher pay, and recruit & retain a strong, diverse teacher workforce; 5 #ABetterDeal #Teachers #Education #DemsWork4USA
Establishing a new $50 billion fund for school infrastructure and resources; 6 #ABetterDeal #Teachers #Education #DemsWork4USA
Supporting Title I and ensuring all students can thrive, regardless of their zip code; 7 #ABetterDeal #EduPolicy #Education #DemsWork4USA
#ABetterDeal Defending teachers’ freedom to negotiate for better pay and working conditions and Meeting our responsibility to fund special education. 8 #DemsWork4USA #TEACHERS #edupolicy
While Republicans fight to slash teacher and school budgets, Democrats are proud to stand with America’s educators and make strong, smart investments in our schools and our children. 9 #ABetterDeal #Teachers #DemsWork4USA #edupolicy
Republicans have utterly broken their promises to fight for the forgotten American, instead rewarding the wealthy and well-connected at the expense of middle class and working families, 10
...undermining every American’s right to be heard at the ballot box and failing to protect our election systems from foreign and domestic attack. 11
#ProtectOurDemocracy #ABetterDeal #VotingRights
#Democrats are fighting to fix our broken political system and return to a government of, by and for the American people. Our Better Deal for Democracy will: 12
#ABetterDeal #ForAll #ProtectOurDemocracy
#Democrats will Empower the American voter to Demand Responsive Government – protecting every citizen’s right to vote, safeguarding our election infrastructure from hostile actors and putting an end to partisan redistricting; 13 #ABetterDeal #ForAll #BlueWave2018
#Democrats will Strengthen our Nation’s Ethics Laws to Fight Special Interests – ending the revolving door in Washington and reining in the influence of high-powered insiders, lobbyists, big-money donors and the special interests driving Washington’s agenda;14 #ABetterDeal
#Democrats will Fix our Broken Campaign Finance System to Combat Big Money Influence – breaking the stranglehold on our democracy by wealthy and well-connected campaign donors and ending the scourge of unaccountable “dark money” unleashed in our system by Citizens United. 15
The American people continue to be left behind by big money lobbyists’ stranglehold on the Republican agenda – footing the bill for a GOP tax scam that hands massive windfalls to big corporations, Wall Street and the wealthiest 1 percent, 16 #ABetterDeal #GOPTaxScam #
..and struggling with surging prescription drug costs because Republicans are too weak to confront Big Pharma’s outrageous price hikes and price gouging. The American people deserve #ABetterDeal.17 #ForAll #DemPartyPlatform

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

From health care, to taxes, to good-paying jobs, to critical consumer protections, President Trump and the #Republican Congress are selling out the American people at every turn: /2 #ARawDeal #CultureOfCorruption #RepublicanGreed
#Democrats must be ready to drive home our case to the American people about how a Democratic majority will fight For The People:/3 #ForAll #ForThePeople #ABetterDeal #PrincipledDemocraticLeadership

It is imperative we expose the ongoing #GOP narrative that uses Leader Nancy Pelosi as a lightening rod for misogynistic, ageist and partisan attacks and what motives and attitudes lie behind it. /1 #IStandWithNancy #GOPLies #DemocraticPrincipledLeadership
In order to get at that truth, it is vital for voters to meet Nancy Pelosi, understand her background, accomplishments and values as well as her vital importance to the Party of the People./2
Nancy Pelosi has consistently put her constituents first and foremost and as Speaker and Minority Leader she has served all Americans with the same commitment and intensity./3 #PrincipledDemocraticLeadership #IStandWithNancy

Democrats Fight #GOP Culture of Corruption to Make Washington Work for the People/1 #VoteBlue2018 #Midterms #Democrats #DemsWork4USA #WhyIVoteDemocrat It’s a vintage button with a donkey kicking an elephant saying “Kick out Depression with a Democratic Vote”
This week’s indictment of #GOP Congressman Chris Collins shines a stark light on the rampant culture of corruption and self-enrichment among #Republicans in Washington today/2 #Collins #CorruptGOP #SwampThings
..and the story continues to widen as reporters unearth at least six other #GOP current and former Members of Congress who have recently owned or sold stock in Innate Immunotherapeutics, the Australian company at the center of the arrest of Rep. Collins./3 #GOPCORRUPT #Collins

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allowed some individuals who were brought to the US illegally as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit in the U.S. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat
The DACA policy was announced by President Barack Obama on June 15, 2012, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began accepting applications for the program on August 15, 2012. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #DACA
Studies have shown that #DACA increased the mental health outcomes for DACA-eligible immigrants and their children.There are no known major adverse impacts from DACA on native-born workers' employment, and most economists say that DACA benefits the U.S. economy #DemHistory

This Republican control over all parts of our government defies comparison. On second thought, it feels like a Biblical punishment..Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?
#RepublicanPlague #CrimesAgainstHumanity #RiseUp
First, the waters of the land of Egypt were to be turned into blood....
The Clean Water Rule protected smaller bodies of water, like streams and wetlands, from discharges of all kinds of pollutants. But not anymore: #RepublicanPlague #CleanWaterAct
The EPA has delayed implementation for 2 years as the agency “clarifies” (read: eliminates)the rule.The decision is a clear gift to industrial polluters who loudly protested the reg in 2015 & GOP lawmakers who have falsely claimed the rule regulates “puddles on private property.” Large freighter ship spilled red and yellow toxic sludge into waterway. People in small boats float on the spill.
