Really, it's so ludicrous. Any legislator who refuses to acknowledge Biden's victory is basically a coward of epic proportion, who cares less about upholding their sworn duty than pandering.

74 million people are ok with this and despite the pieces that claim I need to listen to them, I can't see why.

220 congressional Republicans won't say whether Biden or Trump won the election, Washington Post survey finds - The Washington Post

When are Republican leaders going to condemn this kind of unethical and inappropriate behavior? Or is it OK to try to overturn the will of the electorate just because you don't like the result? 

Anyone who wants a decent reputation going forward needs to leave the party and let the GOP disappear into the rat hole of history.

(not my cat - once in a while she'll show up but like me she's a spy)

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:

Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon on what kind of stimulus each party wants:

Democrats (House): restaurant relief for small businesses like your corner bistro or neighborhood pizza place

Republicans (Senate): tax breaks for two-martini lunches

Republicans encourage client lunches in a pandemic?! In my city, you can only dine outdoors right now and only with your own household. Bring the relief to keep our restaurants afloat until people are vaccinated!

Ali Velshi on the maxim that the USA only has one president at a time: "It's clear that we have one president. It's just not the man in the White House." There is a reason I watch MSNBC all the time.

From U.S. Senator Tina Smith
"Historic progress today. I’ll keep fighting to end the failed and racist policy of marijuana prohibition by working to pass U.S. Senator Kamala Harris’ companion bill in the Senate, as well as my bill to legalize it safely.
At the end of the day, the public overwhelmingly supports legalization but our laws have not kept up. We can legalize marijuana in a smart and safe way.
Read more about my bill:"

Make sure you're registered to vote in the January 5 runoff elections! The deadline is Monday, December 7!

Both of your U.S. Senate seats are up for election. It will decide your full representation in the U.S. Senate and will decide whether or not Republicans maintain their Senate majority and continual obstruction.

Please register if you haven't, check your registration if you have, and ask 3 friends to do the same.

@TonyStark I like that one of his goals for his first 100 days is something that includes everyone. It shows how much he wants to be a president for all of us.

@TonyStark The incompetence of republicans running the government is to blame. When Joe and Kamala are in office, it will take 2-3 years to get the country back to normalcy after the disaster of the last 4 years.


The big recovery numbers early on were from businesses that bounced back quickly and rehired from Democratic relief packages. That's over until Republicans agree to move.

@TonyStark I'd also like to add that the October jobs numbers were revised down AGAIN, something that almost always happens lately and doesn't get that much press attention.

So it's very likely that these numbers will be worse than they are now.
