Thank you @SenSchumer and everyone else who fought to make this possible! Thank you too to @ReverendWarnock @ossoff @KamalaHarris for being the deciding votes - this will make an enormous difference for New York and other communities!!

New York will get about $100b from the bill between aid to government agencies and individual NYers and businesses, per @SenSchumer. Says @NYGovCuomo and @NYCMayor are getting more than they asked for.

56 years ago, John Lewis led a group of marchers across Selma’s Pettus Bridge to secure voting rights for black Alabamians on what would be known as Bloody Sunday.
Rep. Lewis is gone but his march continues. Today, it’s not troopers but state legislatures that stand in the way.

Let’s be clear. The filibuster was put in place to prevent Black people from being treated as equals. Time to eliminate institutional racism.

. @Sen_JoeManchin tells @chucktodd he is against getting rid of filibuster completely but "if you want to make it a little bit more painful — make them stand there and talk — I'm willing to look at any way we can." #MTP

Today is Bloody Sunday. Rename that bridge for John Lewis, one of the world’s greatest heroes!

Near-fatal beating of John Lewis, Bloody Sunday, Selma, today 1965:

56 years ago-Bloody Sunday-we saw the lengths to which those in public office would go to suppress the right to vote. Today we are engaged in that same fight for voting rights. We must be as determined as that brave generation to ensure that everyone can vote-in fair elections.

Please help me find my dog, Dex. He’s been missing since yesterday (March 5th). He went missing in the Kalorama neighborhood near 2535 Belmont Rd NW in DC. He’s an extremely friendly dog but he’s probably scared... only weighs about 15 pounds. He has tan and white fur.

56 years ago, John Lewis led the march across Edmund Pettus Bridge to demand full citizenship. We honor his courage and sacrifice by actively protecting the vote he fought to secure.#BloodySunday

On #BloodySunday, we commemorate the indomitable foot soldiers +leaders who met hatred on that bridge. We honor their fight when we demand justice, exercise our power & refuse to turn back. Yesterday, we rescued America for a time. Next, we make it permanent with #HR1/SR1 & #HR4.

Incredible experience to honor the sacrifices of so many, including #johnlewisisgoodtroubleon #bloodysunday 2012 Selma

Amazing piece

Proving that he remains New York's greatest press agent, the Marvelous Mortimer Matz manages to get the names of almost all of his clients into this story.

Thank you, President Biden.

Senate Democrats delivered the American Rescue Plan and big, bold, urgent COVID relief.

The disconnect and hypocrisy of elected officials honoring front line, healthcare, daycare,  grocery store workers, etc who many don’t make a living wage/$15 an hour, while simultaneously voting against a increase in the minimum wage is absolutely appalling.
