Whatever conservatives say they are, they’ve always accomodated extremism. Take CPAC, for instance. It has always promoted the basic philosophy of the Southern Strategy, rooted in division, lies & racism.

“Echoing the Rev. William Barber and the Poor People’s Campaign, @RWeingarten suggested that after the cruelty and intolerance of the past presidential administration, this must be a ‘new era of reconstruction.’” #ThirdReconstruction

The Equality Act passed in the House yesterday. It’s yet another reminder that this country has always struggled w/ the meaning of “all.” Right now 2 Democratic senators want to deny millions of Americans a living wage, b/c they must not really believe in caring for all the ppl.

Quoted @NickKnudsenUS

It's time.

Watch this video, amplify these voices, and tell your members of Congress to #FightFor15. They need to get this done, one way or another.

NEW FILM from @DemCastUSA & @pttrn_ntgrty: #WeNeed15

Democrats, you said you would fight. Let’s fight. Overrule the parliamentarian.

Overrule the parliamentarian & force a floor vote. Manchin & Sinema won’t kill the bill. If they did, we’d know who they are. But a wage increase that will help 62 mil low-income ppl can’t be stopped by a rule. When a parliamentarian advised vs GOP tax cuts, Trent Lott fired him.

.@VP Harris, filibusters and rules were used to block post-Civil War, civil rights, and human rights legislation. You and Democrats can’t let it block a $15/hr living wage.

Over the last year, some 1.3 million public service jobs, many of them held by African Americans — including nurses, teachers, EMTs and sanitation workers — have evaporated because of holes the pandemic blew open in state and local budgets.

The evidence is overwhelmingly clear: Raising the minimum wage and eliminating the subminimum tipped wage is an urgent and necessary first step to helping the nation recover from COVID-19, growing the economy and lifting up communities across the country.

“The position of Manchin and the so-called 'moderate' Democrats boggles the mind. What they have done so far is endangering Biden’s top legislative priority.”
