Words are my craft and my passion. Thank you @RepJeffries for making me look up "xenial." I wasn't just inspired by your speech. I was educated. :)

I loved how Pelosi let Jeffries give Kevin the gravel. He thought he would have a picture of him taking the gravel from her. Jeffries speech was wonderful. Her shade to Kevin was glorious.

I think C-SPAN should keep control of the cameras on the house floor. It makes our democracy more accessible, understandable, and exciting. Let the people see Democracy in action. #FreeCSPAN

House progressives got a substantive legislative agenda, including COVID relief, infrastructure investment, gun reform, same sex marriage protection and inflation reduction. All law now.

1.) The funding has already been provided. It cannot be “repealed” nor rescinded
2.) The IRS did not “hire 87,000 new agents.” The funding enables them to hire that many agents over the course of TEN YEARS; including agents who retire or leave in that time
3.) The @GOP is useless pic.twitter.com/ACsoAssHX8

It is pretty funny that right-wing Brazilians looked at January 6th — nothing achieved, Trump humiliated and forced to eat crow on national television, rioters imprisoned & prosecuted, the Democrats making political hay out of it for years — and thought "let's do that!"
