"I'm sorry—an unelected parliamentarian does not get to deprive 32 million Americans the raise they deserve," Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., tweeted on Thursday. "This is an advisory, not a ruling. VP Harris needs to disregard and rule a $15 minimum wage in order."  

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., echoed Khanna: "The Senate parliamentarian issues an advisory opinion. The VP can overrule them—as has been done before."

"It is long past time that Senate Democrats eliminate the filibuster and do what they were elected to—deliver bold solutions to address this nation's problems," said Rahna Epting, executive director of MoveOn. "The American public can not afford more obstruction or half measures."

"Thank you again for stepping up in such a big way on tacking climate change," Trudeau said in opening remarks of the meeting, which took place over video due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the... past years," he continued. "And I have to say, as we are preparing the joint rollout and communiqué from this one, it's nice when the Americans aren't pulling out all references to climate change and instead adding them in. So we're really excited to be working with you on that."

"Jeff Sessions was so openly racist that even Reagan couldn't appoint him," Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "Manchin voted to confirm him. Sessions then targeted immigrant children for wide-scale human rights abuses w/ family separation. Yet the 1st Native woman to be Cabinet Sec is where Manchin finds unease?"

Fauci made the comments on the same day the country's death toll reached half a million people. Calling the grim milestone "stunning" in an interview with Reuters, Fauci said the divide over mask wearing, which split Americans politically during a presidential election year, turned the public health measure into a political statement.

And that's the result of politicizing people's health...500.000 deaths

One day before the Georgia Senate runoff elections — and two days before the Capitol insurrection — a leadership PAC attached to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to a mystery company that had previously bought copies of Cruz's book, according to recent filings with the Federal Election Commission. The expenses raise questions about whether the controversial conservative senator (and Cancún frequent-flyer) used those political campaigns, and Donald Trump's attempt to subvert the democratic process, to raise money for himself. That could push the FEC to issue a ruling on a pending issue that could have consequences for former President Donald Trump's fundraising.

Over the course of 2020, the Cruz-affiliated Jobs, Freedom, and Security PAC paid $1.2 million — nearly 80% of its operating budget — to a company called Reagan Investments LLC for "sponsorship advertising." The only other committee to register any disbursements to that company was Trump Make America Great Again, for a fundraising promotion for Cruz's books in December, according to The New York Times. However, the Trump group clearly marked the payment for "collateral: books"; campaign finance experts told Salon that the PAC's payment classifications — all of them for "sponsorship advertising" — were unusual and opaque.

"You have 46 percent of the folks saying they will follow Trump," Steele said Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I'm like, OK, there's the door. Y'all go do your thing and we'll just pick up the pieces on this side and keep moving. And that's the battle."
