Too busy cutting people’s healthcare to stop the war on drugs. Wow.

God forbid people have healthcare in the middle of a global pandemic. But please go ahead and say things on TV.

THE LATEST: New York State Lawmakers Reach Tentative Budget Agreement

+ Spending reduced; no tax hike
+ School aid held flat
+ Billions in Medicaid reductions
+ ⁦@NYGovCuomo⁩ has power to do mid-year cuts
+ Bail law pared back

. @SenSanders, I’m confused. Thought you wanted us to protect our workers? Mr. Smalls purposely violated social distancing rules, repeatedly, & was put on Paid 14-day quarantine for COVID exposure. 3/30 he returned to the site. Knowingly putting our team at risk is unacceptable.

We have been viewing this the wrong way.

It’s not always partisan.

It IS us vs. oligarchs.

To still accept corporate PAC money at this time is telling. It’s giving permission to oligarchs to buy more representation.

I stand with Mr. Smalls and those who protest @amazon.

Quoted @MotherJones

Taxpayers paid millions to design a low-cost ventilator for a pandemic. Instead, the company is selling versions of it overseas.

Seriously, what the hell?

Ohhh I see, the government is literally just funding profit. At the expense of our lives. As usual.

Can we elect people-powered reps now?

For the last 48 hours, instead of spending every second trying to raise new revenue so we can protect our poor and working families during #COVID19, our governor managed to push a budget that cuts healthcare and send more poor people to prison.

I can't support this budget.

It’s April 1st, and that means rent is due today.

Without a full moratorium on rent and mortgage payments, millions of Americans who fall behind on payments are at risk of losing their homes.

We need #RentZero and a #HomesGuarantee now.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but the $350B that is being allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, is being quickly taken up by business owners with savvy financial advisors/accountants who are urging them to apply and walking them through the process.

As per the usual. Wealth begets wealth.

Here’s @NYGovCuomo phone number: 5184748390. Don’t stop telling him renters deserve help too.

I don’t know who needs to see this but this is my cat in a box.

Also rent is due tomorrow and neither the federal gov nor our governor have suspended rent! Keep calling and leaving VMs. Shame on @NYGovCuomo.

I am giving this person a standing ovation from my LIC apartment.

I am thinking of everyone struggling with mental illness during this crisis. Life is difficult enough without all of the added stresses. And we are part of a society that doesn’t prioritize ensuring we have the mental healthcare we need.

Know that I understand and I’m with you.

VICE NEWS: Whole Foods employees staging nationwide strike Tuesday

I stand with @WholeFoods workers today and every day.

Hit their greedy CEO where it counts and do NOT purchase from them until the workers’s safety and rights are prioritized.

I am running for Congress so that the federal government fights this fight on behalf of the people.
