THREAD. Things the GOP Tax bill will hurt:

❌ Millions of Americans who need health insurance
❌ Homeowners
❌ Cities and states
❌ Charitable giving
❌ National debt

The GOP tax bill would leave 13 million people uninsured by 2027, and premiums would rise by about 10% in most years. #StopGOPTaxScam…
The GOP tax bill will be bad for homeowners. It lowers the cap on mortgage interest deduction from $1 million to $750,000, and it eliminates the deduction for interest on home equity loans. #StopGOPTaxScam…
It will hurt cities and states. The GOP tax bill preserve the state and local tax deductions for anyone who itemizes, but it will cap the amount at $10,000. #StopGOPTaxScam…
.@NatlCouncilNPs: “If enacted, the bill would, among other things damage charitable giving by $13billion or more annually; destroy more than 220,000 nonprofit jobs; and impair the ability of nonprofits to address community needs.” #StopGOPTaxScam
The bill would increase deficits by an estimated $1.46 trillion over a decade. #StopGOPTaxScam…

A quick thread on coming forward about being sexually assaulted:

People are predictably questioning Christine Blasey Ford's credibility for "only now" publicly disclosing that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her years ago.

There are a host of reasons why victims stay quiet.
I know this from personal experience. I waited 7yrs before I spoke a word about my rape, which happened when I was 15. I knew my rapist well & struggled to come to terms with what he had done to me. 2/
I was also terrified it would happen again, leading me to completely shut down emotionally. And I couldn't bear the thought of my parents knowing; I didn't want to break their hearts the way mine had been. 3/

I’m running for borough council in my community of Allendale, NJ. It’s a small town in northern Bergen County where Democrats haven’t won a local election since 1973. They started losing, kept losing, and eventually stopped trying.
For 30 years nobody made a serious attempt at running for local office here as a Democrat – until last year, when a brave political novice wrote herself in on the primary ballot, won the nomination & came within striking distance of an incumbent R running for re-election.
That paved the way for where I am now. I’m running for council along with @Burrite, a professor at Rutgers, & a Cuban-American attorney named Carolina Curbelo (a former Republican!) who is running for mayor.

(Thread) Tonight, @SenateMajLdr is advancing a vote on a national 20-week abortion ban.

I understand that this strikes a chord with MANY people, especially those who are anti-abortion. To terminate a pregnancy that far along seems barbaric.

But it's often necessary.
Anyone who has been pregnant and who has received proper prenatal care knows that you don't get the anatomy scan until 20 weeks.

This is when serious defects & fetal fatalities are determined, often for the first time during a pregnancy.
Women who are this far along in their pregnancies are, generally speaking, planning to give birth.

They are like Alicia Hupprich, who was thrilled to be pregnant with her second child, only to find out after 20 weeks that her pregnancy was doomed.…

(Thread) Warning: Your head may explode upon reading this.

Congressional candidate @SykesforSenate recently outlined his thoughts on women's rights.

Settle in. This is a doozy.

#ThursdayThoughts #BlueWave2018
"I want to come home to a home cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn after they become traditional homemakers and family wives" - @SykesforSenate
"I don't buy into radical feminism's crazed definition of modern womanhood and I never did...And I don't buy the non-stop feminization campaign against manhood." - @SykesforSenate
