#NEW: 66% of Americans in a new The Economist/YouGov poll said they support Biden's economic/covid-19 relief plan. 25% said they oppose it.
According to data from @cwarshaw, this makes Biden's bill the most popular key legislative/executive action since the min wage hike of 2007
Conservative activists huddled at a virtual training session last week, with keynote remarks from Matt Gaetz, to strategize ways to stop states and counties from using "black box" (i.e. Dominion) voting machines
For bloggers/netsroots type of a certain age this has some added comedic irony.
One issue with this proposal from Hawley is that his proposed refundable credit would phase out at a rate of 50%.
Combine that with payroll taxes, income taxes, and other welfare phaseouts — and some low-income Americans could be facing marginal tax rates of near 100% (!)
Replying to @jbouie: shot, chaser, etc.
The evidence in the Dreyfus case revealed to be a forgery; the forger Colonel Henry commits suicide; Maurras turns him into a martyr; anti-Dreyfusards attempt a farcical coup; Socialists enter the government; a heavy hand is brought down on the far right
Been really enjoying John’s writing on the Third Republic. Check it out.
Young Pharaoh, who CPAC canceled, is turning "cancel culture" on CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp. Pharaoh said he was "publicly mother******* lynched for saying the same sh*t that the f*cking chairman [Matt Schlapp] said himself."
This is incredible: “I agree Matt Schlapp! I agree!”
If a liberal rich person wanted to recreate the messaging success of the right AND save journalism, they'd buy some papers and lose money on them at the rate the Falun Gong loses money on the Epoch Times, instead of introducing new Business Models and giving up after a year
“Many Republicans are now signaling that they retain the right to use violence to overthrow the government at any time,” says @chrislhayes on implied threat of guns. “They are willing to brandish that claim as a threat in pursuit of their political aims”
The House will vote on Friday on @POTUS’ #AmericanRescuePlan to end this pandemic and deliver urgently needed relief to America’s families and small businesses. The American people strongly support this bill, and we are moving swiftly to see it enacted into law.
@chrislhayes It is insane that we’ve never had an actual briefing from any relevant agencies on what is easily the greatest security failure and senior political-social incitement in memory. Nothing. Like we’re supposed to forget it happened and why.
Cornyn on OMB Dir nominee Tanden: "My friendly advice to President Biden is to withdraw Neera Tanden's nomination & select someone,who at the very least,has not promoted wild conspiracy theories & openly bashed people on both sides of the aisle that she happens to disagree with."
Replying to @jdawsey1: Cornyn says he is very opposed to espousing wild conspiracy theories and bashing people online.
After the January 6 “Stop the Steal” event at the Capitol, @MarkPedroli and I requested records of communications between Missouri’s Attorney General’s Office and dark money groups that issued a robocall recruiting people to the event.
NEW: We calculated 3 decades of the Senate "popular vote" & how many people each party represented. The results are astonishing: The GOP hasn't won more votes or represented more people than Dems since the 1990s but has run the Senate > half the time since
