We are 78 days from the election.

Nothing has been done to protect our elections.

Let's talk about how far the @GOP are willing to go to undermine our democracy.

First up, no respect for the judiciary branch.


Next up. Trying to undermine democracy by kicking the opposing party off the ballot.

Notice the irony in using the judicial system?

Next up. Refusing to hold special elections, subverting the will of the people.

As @SenateGOP move forward with their #GOPTaxScam I decided to see how they would personally benefit from their plan.

39 Republicans are worth over a MILLION dollars!

4 are worth over 50 MILLION!

This tax plan benefits them personally.

Drill down for every GOP Senator
#Alabama is up first.
