“There are no consequences in the Republican caucus for violence. No consequences for racism. No consequences for misogyny. No consequences for insurrection. And no consequences means that they condone it. It means that that silence is acceptance," says @AOC.
New: Rep. Jimmy Gomez announced today he will introduce a resolution to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from the U.S. House of Representatives.
No member of Congress should be forced to work alongside someone who has threatened their lives and the lives of their colleagues.
Tomorrow afternoon @AOC joins Bronx elected’s in calling on Albany to pass tax increases on the wealthy.
@NYGovCuomo has proposed a tax hike on high income earners in his 2022 proposed budget, but legislators and advocates say it doesn’t go far enough.
It's time to #TaxTheRich
Trump is expected to meet with Kevin McCarthy in Florida on Thursday. The Trump-McCarthy meeting was initiated by the California Republican and is part of an effort to get back into the good graces of the former president. @ryanobles @jeffzeleny report
He should stay there.
and @RepKenyatta brings the 🔥🔥 when he asks how the people of PA can trust the legislature who he notes -- as was noted yesterday -- can't be bothered to wear masks during a pandemic
Replying to @malcolmkenyatta: The Republican majority can’t be trusted to listen to science. They can’t be trusted to wear a mask. They can’t be tru…
TOMORROW at 7PM: Join us for our first virtual Community Reunion of the year!
We’ll give updates on national and local efforts to #Expel insurrectionists from Congress, hear from WFP Director of Peace & Security @_pamcampos, and more!
The Senate is setting up to begin the impeachment trial & already the GOP is trying to sweep Trump's culpability under the rug. But we are not letting them get away with it. Keep the pressure on. #ImpeachAndExpel

Remarkable @WSJ investigation finds that the Proud Boys, who have tried to play down their involvement in the Capitol riot, in fact led some of the most pivotal moments of escalation.
Unity and reconciliation are not possible without truth and accountability. There must be a full investigation into the events on and leading up to 1/6, including the involvement of any Republican members of Congress or staff.
The end of 2020 brought the sharpest rise in the U.S. poverty rate since the 1960s
Trump and McConnell blocked relief for millions for months, and poverty — especially Black poverty — is surging. Biden and Dems need to move immediately to deliver #jobsandcare for working families
Tomorrow Austin will vote on whether to buy two hotels and turn them into 140 units of low-barrier permanent supportive housing for people experiencing chronic homelessness. $6.5M in funding for the initiative comes straight from police budget cuts
Austin, TX is showing us what is possible. They will #defundthepolice and may literally use that money to provide permanent supportive housing for people experiencing chronic homelessness.
We can and should defund the police and house, feed, educate, and care for folks.
NEW: Marjorie Taylor Greene indicated support for executing prominent Democrats in Facebook comments, videos, and likes in 2018 and 2019
This is dangerous and unacceptable for a member of Congress. We're entrusted to serve and represent all of our constituents. This extreme and violent rhetoric only fans the flames of division, and we've just seen how deadly those flames can be.
"You do not have to have gone to college, you do not have to be a lawyer, you do not have to come out of a fancy consulting firm to run for office."
WFP's @BritneyDWhaley on the critical work of recruiting and electing more nontraditional candidates:
In a speech that she posted on Facebook live, Green suggested that Nancy Pelosi could be executed for treason.
She replied to a comment about hanging Obama and Clinton by saying "the stage is being set."
No member of Congress, and no staff member, should be forced to work in the same building as this person.
Joseph Mensah, former Wauwatosa police office who murdered Alvin Cole, Jay Anderson, and Antonio Gonzales, has just been sworn in as Waukesha County Sheriff's deputy.
Why are officers allowed to simply plead self-defense and move to another county.
Stop killing us.
Congress must now:
1⃣ #Convict Trump in the Senate and remove him from office ASAP.
2⃣ #Expel members of Congress who voted against the certification of lawful election results.
3⃣ #Investigate fully the security response on 1/6.
