1. Too many people don't get the connection between SOCIAL Security, Medicare, highways, dams, airports, roads, fire departments (things that they like) and the social democracy that it takes to run those programs.

2. The republican party has turned into a cult. Hysteria is the theme and socialism is one of the dog whistle buzzwords.

Why Republicans are resorting to anti-socialism hysteria - conservatives will say anything to justify backing a racist, loony president:

Congress needs to issue a permanent solution for DACA kids. They have lived here their whole lives and know no other home.

I hope this judge has set the gold standard for the other state lawsuits trying to end DACA. Go take an irrelevant seat, Donny.

Your days and attempts to end our democracy are getting fewer as you continue to be a loser in more ways than one.

Honestly, if it was only his supporters he was grifting, I wouldn't care.

Yeah, they could probably use the money more than he can, but if they're not smart enough to accept they're being conned, they probably shouldn't have it in the first place.

But it's not just them. It's every taxpayer, our money. And that's the part that requires a reckoning.

As usual, Democrats want to help everyone and Republicans just want to help themselves.

McConnell needs to preserve his Senate majority and will approve a package, if only to take the wind out of the Democrats' sails in the Georgia Senate run-off. If he saves his majority, he will revert to form and block any new spending.

I really don't understand why there isn't more outrage about this race.

It's legal, but certainly fraudulent and once again shows you which party is out stealing elections.

Sources say former Miami state Sen. Frank Artiles boasted that he planted a no-party candidate in the Miami-Dade Senate race, which Garcia won after a three-day recount by just 32 votes out of more than 215,000 cast: miamiherald.com/news/local/com

Republicans failed to financially incentivize people to stay home and businesses to stay closed. Too many Republicans eschewed medical scientific evidence but showed up with masks later, after COVID caught up with them.

We will never beat this until we collectively rise to the occasion. Everyone knows what that means by now, hashtag or not.

The vast majority of EMT and first responders come from local governments.

They are unsung heroes of this pandemic battle. They are the front line and they risk themselves and their families to serve all of us. These are workers that Mitch McConnell and other Republicans don't want to include in the next relief bill.

Call your Senators and tell them to include state and local governments in the next plan.

Double these numbers would be a recovery. This is not.

The unemployment rate is artificially low because another 400,000 people left the workforce. The bottom line is that the recovery has all but stalled out.

Previous bounce back was also the result of the CARES Act so you can "thank" Mitch McConnell for blocking the Democrats' 2nd COVID relief package for this disaster.

The economy added 245,000 jobs in November, the slowest month of growth since recovery began:

Our next President has just announced he will ask everyone in the country to wear a mask for his first 100 days. There's a reason for that.

Face masks reduced Tampa Bay coronavirus cases by 1.4 million, says USF professor:

These will keep being dismissed, but the fact that 3 Republican-appointed judges voted to assist Trump in destroying U.S. democracy is why I make it my business to register as many voters as possible, to work for good candidates, and to encourage anyone who will listen to do the same.  

But there is no doubt that Trump lost « bigly » - by more than 10x the size of his paltry 2016 margin.

This is exactly the type of person who should be advising Biden on economics.

Shifting the focus to how economic policy supports or impedes workers, with a focus on systemic inequalities in institutions that help drive our economy, is the only way our country will begin to reverse the current trends toward extreme income disparities and concentrations of wealth in fewer and fewer people.

Biden’s New Top Economist Has a Longtime Focus on Workers: nyti.ms/3lpyMAJ

Excellent article. This played out in every town, county, state, country and continent.

There was a time in March when my friends and I discussed how none of us knew anyone affected by the virus. Now we all know too many- many who didn't have access to healthcare or couldn't stay home because they had to keep working.

No one should be considered expendable. Our next President knows that. Take these stories seriously. and if you can.

Efforts have not stalled; Mitch McConnell has stalled efforts.

The first thing cut from the bill was the much needed $1200.00 stimulus checks. Once again the people who need money the most are pushed aside. People are sicker, hungrier, and homeless, yet big business' liability protection has been pushed to the front of the line?

Republicans want to defund our government. Predictable for them to fake deficit concerns and try to sink a Democratic administration no matter who they hurt.

COVID relief.
A living wage.
Healthcare that covers eveyone.
Education for everyone.

Start with that. Going to austerity right now is a sure fire way to create a depression given that we're already in a recession.
