It's really this simple: if you've got a better than what @AOC is offering to combat climate change, please show it. If you're a Member of Congress who can effectively address climate change better than the #GreenNewDeal, show your receipts. Make an effort.

Let's be clear how things work: Internal @TheJusticeDept bureaucratic processes do not control Congress. On issues of national importance, Congress has the absolute right to have the relevant information & the American people have the right to see it (unless it is classified). https:// twitter.com/RepJerryNadler /status/1099074993890250752   …

Looking forward to joining @BillMaher tonight. What will we talk about? Just the steps we're taking in Congress to safeguard our country's 242 year-old democracy. And why it’s past time for the GOP in Congress to speak out. Happy Friday! https:// twitter.com/RealTimers/sta tus/1098998674930057218   …
This is how @SenFeinstein reacted to children asking her to support the #GreenNewDeal resolution -- with smugness + disrespect. This is a fight for our generation's survival. Her reaction is why young people desperately want new leadership in Congress.

Here’s our simple message to Attorney General Barr: When Special Counsel Robert Mueller completes the investigation, make his report public. And turn the evidence over to Congress. Without delay and to the maximum extent permitted by law. Our letter:

President Trump’s attempt to strip Congress of its constitutional duty in order to fulfill a campaign promise is a gross abuse of power. Proud to support this important resolution nullifying this fake national emergency declaration. https:// twitter.com/JoaquinCastrot x/status/1098781498545721344   …
Rep. Ben McAdams 22/02/2019 08:24
I support the resolution to block the President from spending almost $8 billion w/out approval from Congress. Our Constitution separates powers to ensure a democratic process. The President's action sets a dangerous precedent & harms our constitutional checks and balances. #utpol https:// twitter.com/JoaquinCastrot x/status/1098781498545721344   …

This new rule is a disgraceful assault on women's right and an assault on millions of Americans' ability to get the health care they need. Title X funds provide much-needed family planning services for millions of people. Congress must take action to overturn the final rule. https:// twitter.com/washingtonpost /status/1099016036534358017   …

Regulations governing Mueller’s investigation do not prohibit AG Barr from disclosing the final report to Congress, & I repeat my call for Barr to provide the report unedited once he has received it. A summary written by Barr instead of the Mueller report will not be acceptable.
Senator Bob Casey 22/02/2019 07:42
This draft rule is an outrageous assault on women’s health. Seeking to defund Planned Parenthood will deny millions of women access to vital care, like contraception and cancer screenings. Should this draft rule be finalized, Congress should move to undo it. https:// twitter.com/AliceOllstein/ status/1099012293420089344   …
