No civilized country should tolerate the income disparity or worker poverty that we have. Raise the damn wage and do it federally. The plan is even a series of steps, not overnight.

A person working full-time should be able to afford to buy a house or apartment. $15 is the floor. States can add on as they see fit. People up at the top can make less and pay their taxes.

9. Driven the rise of COVID-19 cases up, again, by not wearing masks.

The Republican Party in just the last 4 days:

1. Had their leader call the nation's leading infectious disease experts "idiots."
2. Lost in the Supreme Court in their bid to suppress the vote in Pennsylvania.
3. Continued to embrace QAnon who believe in a satanic criminal conspiracy of “deep state” child molesters seeking to take down the president. Really. 1/2 :voteblue2: :voteblue:
