What if Congress takes back its power of the purse & uses taxpayer dollars Trump is misusing to build his wall for coronavirus? & the subsidies he’s paying farmers because of their losses from his tariffs. & all the money his golf trips are costing us.

Elizabeth Warren went on 60 minutes and talked about her vision for healthcare.

Bernie Sanders went on 60 minutes and praised murderous dictator Fidel Castro’s literacy program.

Tell me again who’s a better general election candidate?

Quoted @thehill

Trump allies assembled lists of officials considered disloyal to president: report

He's made very clear that he intends to become the unbounded, autocratic ruler of the U.S. if he can draw the inside straight that lets him do it. We ignore his *blindingly obvious intentions* at *all* our peril. Every day this man *screams* at us his plans to kill our democracy.

Quoted @kylegriffin1

Judge Amy Berman Jackson has denied a motion from Roger Stone seeking her recusal from deciding a new trial.

Judge Jackson said Stone's legal team did not provide any "factual or legal support" to have her removed from presiding over his case.

Her ruling is correct.

 7,062  73  1,267

Quoted @jonathanvswan

The Trump White House and its allies, over the past 18 months, assembled detailed lists of disloyal government officials to oust — and trusted pro-Trump people to replace them — according to more than a dozen sources familiar with the effort.

Banana republic stuff, really.

GINNI Thomas's efforts to try to impact personnel in the administration have long troubled some in the White House, who thought it raised questions that the wife of a sitting SCOTUS justice was making such requests. My dispatch with @anniekarni last year

Trump eliminated a position called Senior Director of Global Health Security. That person used to work in the NSC to coordinate responses to global health emergencies and potential pandemics.

 15,507  355  7,041

Quoted @RonaldKlain

All the measures that have been imposed abroad on #coronavirus -- and the uneven travel restrictions here -- are designed to "buy time" for nations to "prepare."

But are we preparing? What are the signs of preparation? What is the plan? Who is in charge?

This is where the administration's incompetence rivals its corruption for likelihood to produce bad outcomes.

Quoted @realDonaldTrump

95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a Record. 218 Federal Judges, also a Record. 2 Supreme Court Justices. Thank you!

Half the country favored removal. Can’t spell. Thinks “Nipple” and “Button” are places in India, and that the Chiefs play in Kansas. Didn’t know what Pearl Harbor was. Lies about everything, from polls to weather. Shakes down allies for personal benefit. You’re welcome!

@FaceTheNation @BernieSanders Farm bailouts? Social program.
Farm subsidies? Social program.
Fossil fuel subsidies? Social program.
Tax cuts? Social program.
Carried interest loophole? Social program.
Cap gains lower tax rate? Social program.

Don't be fooled: GOP LOVE SOCIAL PROGRAMS.

House Dems passed a major health care bill that promises substantial relief in prescription drug costs

It would change the relationship between govt and the lobbyists responsible for the obscene pharmaceutical profits,

If McConnell doesn't block it
