Sad news from Michigan
Jane and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of State Rep. Isaac Robinson. He served as a vice chair for our campaign in Michigan and believed strongly in a fairer future for all. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones. pic.twitter.com/uW6xw6YylA

Moreover, if and when Biden does become president, he will be in charge of a country in ruins. Fixing the place up will require extremely energetic leadership. But both Biden, his campaign, and the Democratic establishment seem to believe that if they just pretend hard enough, everything will go back to normal…
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Sunday offered a grim assessment of the coronavirus pandemic engulfing the state, as he reported that 237 people had died since the day before, the largest on one-day increase since the coronavirus outbreak began.

I stand with the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe in their fight to restore lands that belong to them, and I oppose the disgraceful decision by the Trump Administration to disestablish their lands held in trust by the Department of Interior. https://t.co/pNH2YUH00D

We need a clean Carcieri fix to reaffirm the authority of the Secretary of the Interior to take land into trust for all federally recognized Indian tribes. A Sanders administration will prioritize that.

Here’s more about the Wampanoags and the real reason they are getting shafted.

Much closer Trump/Biden than the Fox poll. Biden has an enthusiasm deficit. Who could have predicted? And the Biden/Sanders race could turn around again

The primary election is September 1. Regardless of how the Dem primary for president is resolved, we need to fully get behind Markey, Romanoff in Colorado (June 30), and Rashida Tlaib in Michigan (August 4). Ilhan Omar and AOC have primary opponents, but I think they are pretty safe.
Along with pausing mortgage payments, evictions, and utility shutoffs, we must place a moratorium on rent payments, especially in states hardest-hit by the coronavirus like New York. We must build on the important work @sengianaris and others are doing to make this happen. https://t.co/FKDbZYk4Pp

Bernie Sanders is making it increasingly clear that his presidential bid is far from over, even as he faces long odds of winning the Democratic nomination.
Less clear, however, is whether his game plan is to…
There appear to be lots of Dem voters (especially older voters) who support M4A (and other progressive ideas) but still voted for Biden because he is more “electable.” Bernie, based on what he believes and who he is, was always going to have a tough road with older, more conservative, more religious voters.
Who could have foreseen this? 😣
And just like that, the Congressional oversight provisions for the 1/2 TRILLION dollar Wall St slush fund (which were *already* too weak) are tossed away the day the bill is signed.
This is a frightening amount of public money to have given a corrupt admin w/ 0 accountability. https://t.co/yhL62fj58R

This is unacceptable. The CARES Act was a bipartisan deal, and the President was in negotiations. With $2 trillion in federal spending, oversight is not an elective; it’s an imperative. Taxpayers deserve better. https://t.co/rP1qpgRD9I
