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
Republicans are running a government of, by and for the lobbyists and wealthy donors – not a government for the people./4 #GOPCorruption #complicit #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
Instead of draining the swamp, the #GOP Congress and Trump Administration have become cesspools of self-enrichment, secret money and special interests:/5 #CultureOfCorruption
Congressman Collins revealed the true cravenness of the #GOPTaxScam for the rich, when he declared “My donors are basically saying, ‘Get it done or don’t ever call me again.’”/6 #GOPCorruption #GOPGreed
OMB Director Mick Mulvaney told 1,300 bankers and industry officials to buy influence in order to push lawmakers to dismantle key financial protections for consumers, saying,../7 #GOPCorruption #GOPGreed #EnoughIsEnough #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
OMB Director Nick Mulvaney said:
“We had a hierarchy in my office in Congress. If you’re a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn’t talk to you. If you’re a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you.”/8 #GOPCorruption #PayToPlay #Lobbyists #GOPGreed
While House #Republicans enrich themselves and their special interest donors, #Democrats are committed to cleaning up corruption to make Washington work #ForThePeople./9 #ABetterDeal #DrainTheGOPSwamp
A Democratic Majority will deliver #ABetterDeal For #OurDemocracy to hold the #GOP accountable for their corrupt big-money politics and drain the President’s swamp:/10 #GOPCorruption #GOPGreed #VoteThemOut
Strengthening America’s ethics laws to fight the special interests – ending the revolving door in Washington, and reining in the influence of lobbyists, big money donors and special interests who drive the #Republican agenda./11 #STOPGOPCORRUPTION #DemFuture #VoteBlue
..Fixing our broken campaign finance system to combat big money influence – wiping out the scourge of unaccountable, secret dark money, and overturning #CitizensUnited!/12 #DemFuture #CampaignFinanceReform #VoteBlue
#Democrats will Empower the American voter to demand responsive government – protecting every citizen’s right to vote, and their right to have their vote counted as cast, safeguarding our election infrastructure and ending partisan redistricting./13 #VOTEBLUE #ABetterDeal
The connection between massive flows of #DarkMoney in politics and the exploitative policies of the #GOP is crystal clear. Hard-working Americans across the country are paying the price for the GOP’s donor-driven agenda:/14 #CultureOfCorruption (Graphic by Nick Anderson)
Hard-working families and consumers are paying the price for the #GOPTaxScam handouts to Wall Street & wealthy corporations./15 #CultureOfCorruption #GOPCorruption #GOPGreed
Children are paying the price as the #GOP helps out dirty energy polluters contaminating our clean air and clean water./16 #GOPEnvironmentalDisaster #RepublicanPlague
#Seniors are paying the price for huge #GOP tax breaks to Big Pharma hiking #prescriptiondrugcosts./17 #GOPTaxScam #GOPGreed #CultureOfCorruption
The American people deserve better than the #GOP’s #corruption, #cronyism, and #incompetence. Delivering #ABetterDeal for hard-working families means enacting tougher ethics laws to crack down on the self-dealing that has metastasized under the GOP Congress &Trump Admin. /18
The American people are confronted with a #GOP Congress and Administration that has taken every opportunity to stack the deck for the wealthy and well-connected against hard-working American families and seniors./19
From health care, to taxes, to good-paying jobs, to critical consumer protections, Mr. Trump and the #GOP Congress are giving the American people a #rawdeal./20 #GOPTaxScam #GOPGreed #GOPCorruption

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

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

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.

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), enacted by the U.S. Congress & signed into law by Pres. Barack Obama in 2009, designed to stimulate the U.S. economy by saving jobs jeopardized by the Great Recession of 2008–09 and creating new jobs #DemHistory #ForAll
Obama’s first major legislative effort was to enact a recovery program that would stimulate the economy by creating or saving millions of jobs and staunching the bleeding from the recession. #DemHistory #ForAll #DemsWork4USA
#ARRA introduced in the House of Representatives less than a week after Obama assumed office/on 1/28/09 the House passed its version of the bill, which envisioned an $819B package of gov spending & tax cuts & was passed without the support of any Republicans #DemHistory #ForAll
