Quoted @ryangrim

Anti-monopoly group is hitting Richie Neal over corporate tax cuts that benefited a key donor, Blackstone. (And Morgan Harper is advising the group on its strategy.)

Neal won’t fight for Trump’s tax returns. He will fight for Trump’s corporate tax giveaway.

Neal leads Democrats in accepting corporate money and is the leading voice against Medicare for All in the Democratic caucus; he's even urged Democrats not to say the words "Medicare for All" in public.

1. Teachers are organizing into a national movement to demand schools stay closed until strict safety measures are in place or the virus is under control.

They say they do not feel safe or listened to. And Trump’s intervention has deepened their anger.

Good. Trump threatened to veto:

- A $15 minimum wage
- Hazard pay
- Paid sick leave to essential workers
- Expanded unemployment benefits

He's fighting in court to throw 23 million Americans off of health insurance. He's denied overtime to 8 million workers

This is better.⬇

A new report found the amount of unpaid taxes from 2011 to 2013 averaged around $381 billion per year that is largely the result of big corporations and “wealthy tax cheats” dodging their obligations.

Raw sewage drains into Pamela Rush's backyard. Her children are exposed to mold. She still owes $15,000 on her mobile home.

Systemic injustices trap millions of people like Pamela in poverty. Our mission is to find them a way out.

Today the 6 Biden-Sanders Unity Task Forces are unveiling final language.

The Climate Task Force accomplished a great deal. It was an honor to serve as co-chair w/ Sec. @JohnKerry.

Among the notable gains: we shaved *15 years* off Biden’s previous target for 100% clean energy.
