Arguing for letting businesses ignore local mask requirements, one Arizona legislator questioned why masks are recommended to stop the spread of COVID-19 but were not recommended to stop the spread of AIDS
Pre-reqs for elected office should include a passing grade on a “What Every Functioning Adult Should Know” basic knowledge exam. 🤦🏽♀️
We all know large bills get tinkered with. But tinkering that leaves out millions of Americans from COVID relief, shrinks stimulus checks, & drops the income cap while accelerating phase out is not tinkering.
It’s selling out.
Dems: You won. Act like it.
NEW Morning Consult/Politico Poll
77% support for the American Rescue Plan (only 18% oppose)
59% of Republicans support the American Rescue Plan (only 33% oppose)
REMINDER: 100% of Republicans in Congress voted no.
This plan meets the definition of bipartisanship: ~ 80% of ALL Americans support it. Yet, 100% of GOP Representatives voted against it.
It’s sickening to hear the GOP cry for bipartisanship while they gladly sacrifice their own constituents to appease their party overlords.
If you post years of vile false divisive tweets you can be POTUS. But if you’re somewhat mean you can’t be OMB director. Ok.
If you’re a petulant, indignant white male who committed sexual assault, you can be a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
So, yes. This tracks.
Mississippi joined Texas on Tuesday in lifting state mask mandates, despite federal health officials warning governors not to ease restrictions yet, because national progress in reducing coronavirus cases appears to have stalled in the last week.
More reckless dereliction of duty from @GovAbbott in TX, w/2nd highest daily #COVID19 deaths. Of all restrictions states have in place to mitigate spread, masks are one of the most effective & least onerous.
I pray Texans do the right thing, for themselves & each other. #MaskUp
Gov. Doug Ducey foolishly jumped the vaccine line ahead of regular folks via @azcentral
Good for you in getting the vaccine, @dougducey. May prompt others to get theirs.
Now, be a good leader by:
1) acknowledging the process was simplified for you
2) identifying the flaws of the tedious system that regular folks must navigate to get their vaccines
3) fixing it
Neera Tanden once criticized Joe Manchin's pharma CEO daughter
Given the last 4 yrs, it’s pathetically laughable @Sen_JoeManchin opposes @neeratanden’s nomination because of tweets.
He has a personal axe to grind & he’s OK that it’s at the expense of having a brilliantly qualified South Asian woman heading up the Biden administration #OMB.
11 y.o. Cristian Pavón Pineda from Conroe, Texas enjoyed his first experience with snow, while his home suffered a power loss. Less than 24 hrs later his mom found the sixth grader dead from hypothermia in his bed where temperatures hit single digits.
Devastating preventable tragedy after devastating preventable tragedy...in the richest nation on the planet 🧵
Republicans/Republican groups have opposed and/or run ads attacking these Biden nominees:
- Vanita Gupta (AAPI woman/DOJ)
- Neera Tanden (AAPI woman/OMB)
- Xavier Becerra (Latino/HHS)
- Alejandro Mayorkas (Latino/DHS *confirmed)
- Janet Yellen (Jewish woman/Treasury *confirmed)
Thank you, @JoyAnnReid, for these much-needed truths 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Phrases/words like “[he did] look a lot like a dad” & “contrite” offer sympathy to a U.S. Senator who FLED TO CANCUN amidst horrific crises in his state.
And “mea culpa?” Please! Try: “He’s sorry because he got caught.”
Do better, @washingtonpost
AP confirms with a single source: Ted Cruz has traveled to Mexico for a family vacation as his home state struggles with a weather crisis that has left much of Texas without power.
This is much more than a PR disaster.
It’s further evidence of their horrid indifference to the suffering of millions.
Self-serving #GOPCowards @SenTedCruz, @GovAbbott, & @JohnCornyn have all utterly failed Texans. #TexasDeservesBetter
The Arizona Senate votes to reconsider voucher expansion. Apparently, the education of "poor kids" takes a back seat to the education of @PaulDBoyer on what happens to renegade senators who don't toe the party line. via @azcentral
Insanity. Now the union bosses are demanding we cure asthma and totally eliminate mold, before they allow kids to back to school.
Your callous snark towards a chronic illness that impacts > 6M U.S. kids reveals an ignorance of science & a lack of compassion.
FYI, @SenTedCruz: Updating school ventilation systems can help ⬇️ transmissibility of #COVID19 AND frequency of life-threatening asthma exacerbations.
