Republicans have invented another solution in search of a problem. Their latest hullabaloo is making sure that non-US citizens don't vote in American elections. Huh? It's ALREADY illegal for non-citizens to vote. Get back to work, Mr. Speaker. You're only in that job for a few more months...

We love this portrait of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and how becoming a father has changed his view of political life. #SecretaryPete

Miami-Dade County (and its Democratic mayor, Daniella Levine-Cava) passed a law requiring employers to mitigate the scorching Florida heat with shade and water breaks. But the dimwitted Republican Governor overruled her with a law that FORBIDS providing shade and water breaks,

The voting shenanigans in the South continue. Republicans in Georgia just passed 3 laws that actively suppress voting in the state. GA voters, if you check "I intend to return" when you register at votefromabroad.org, you can vote down ballot...

Millionaires are paying about HALF the tax rate they did pre-1980. Where corporations once provided up to 1/3 of federal revenue—their share is now under 10%.
The rich are richer than ever, and corporations are raking in record profits. "Trickle-down economics" is a failure.

Speaking of voting, here's a 🧵 on why US citizens abroad should register with Vote From Abroad instead of asking their Local Election Official for an absentee ballot. 👇
When you ask your Local Election Official for an absentee ballot, you're just another voter in your state.

VW workers in #TN just voted to unionize their Chattanooga plant--the first time workers at a foreign-owned auto plant in the US South have unionized. The Republican governors of TN, AL, GA, Mississippi, SC, and TX issued a joint letter denouncing the UAW.
Democrats support unions. #UnionStrong

May is #WomensHealthMonth , so we must point out that by overturning #RoevWade , conservatives wanted to address the "white birth dearth." Instead, there was a huge spike in permanent contraception (tubal ligations and vasectomies) by young adults. We can only say: FAFO, GOP. #GOPWarOnWomen

👀 Think the IRS and your county's local election official are in cahoots? Spoiler alert: they're not.
Many myths surround taxes and voting for Americans abroad. The Chair of DA's Taxation Task Force, Rebecca Lammers, reveals all in this video.

96% of all the new jobs in the last 35 years were created under 3 Presidents. These 3 guys. All Democrats.
Democrats are demonstrably better for the economy than Republicans. Vote accordingly. #DemocratsDeliver

Republicans just can't stop suppressing votes, in particular the votes of people of color. Their latest scheme in Alabama has voting advocates alarmed, while probably being unconstitutional.
They are trying to stop us from voting because they know that we will Vote. Them. Out.

Is it inflation, or is it corporations raking in record profits? With little competition, they can charge whatever they like. After years of them paying nothing, President Biden made hugely profitable corporations pay at least 15% in taxes,

Amazing stuff happening in Wisconsin. The Donald-endorsed businessman running against incumbent Democrat Tammy Baldwin says that folks in nursing homes should not be allowed to vote because they're almost dead, and the main 2020 election denier now runs the WI Republican party.
