The Citizens United disaster, in a nutshell:

In 2008, before the ruling, billionaires contributed $31 million to federal campaigns.

In 2020, billionaires contributed $1.2 billion.

That’s a 40-fold increase.

It never had to be like this.
 
So the guy who praised dictators around the world ran off with classified documents. I’m shocked.
 
Repeat after me: Get Big Money out of politics.

So wait, the same Republicans in Congress who claim to be pro-life also voted against making life-saving insulin more affordable?

Why does it matter that Dems are finally enabling Medicare to negotiate drug prices?

On average, prescription drug prices in the U.S. are 256% more expensive than they are in similar countries.

Republicans clearly don't give a damn.

It's telling when news about you pleading the Fifth over 400 times during a deposition about financial fraud is overshadowed by the FBI raiding your home during an unrelated investigation into violations of the Espionage Act.

UPS saves $185 upfront by deleting AC from vehicles. Is it worth it when drivers are being hospitalized and dying because of heat exhaustion?
 
The IRS is set to receive its largest funding increase in years thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act.

You know who should be worried about this?

Wealthy Americans who dodge taxes!
 
The Inflation Reduction Act includes some critical provisions that will benefit millions of Americans.

Does it include everything we need? No. This is why we need a real majority that won't have to compromise with Manchinema.

Let’s celebrate this win, and organize for more.
 
Every Republican just voted *against* enabling Medicare to negotiate and lower drug prices, empowering the IRS to go after super-rich tax dodgers, and taxing profitable corporations to invest in the people.

And they call themselves the party of the working class?

BREAKING: In a landslide election, workers at a Trader Joe's in Minneapolis, MN voted to unionize. Final count: 55-to-5

They are the 2nd store to do so out of more than 500 TJs locations. They joined the independent @TraderJoesUnite, which won 1st union in MA in July

How long until Trump tries to fundraise off of potentially violating the Espionage Act?
 
Robert Reich Retweeted ·  
NBC has obtained the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. It shows Donald Trump is under investigation for potential obstruction of justice and violations of the Espionage Act
 
I never want to hear Republicans talk about law and order again.
 
Just a thought: There are more working class people than there are billionaires and CEOs.

It's not even close.

Imagine what could happen if we stand in solidarity.

There are 14 million union members in the US.
 
“No one is above the law” is only true if we make it so. Prosecute Trump.

The IRS budget has been reduced by roughly 20%. Meanwhile, the richest 1% have been able to evade as much as $163 billion a year in taxes. These things are directly connected.

Ignore the fear-mongering. Funding the IRS means finally going after wealthy Americans who dodge taxes.
 
In large part due to the Powell memo, both political parties transformed themselves from organizations that channeled the views of members upward into giant fundraising machines that sucked in money from the top.

Its influence has been disastrous. robertreich.substack.com/p/the-worst-me…

Great move by AG Garland. Next move: Prosecute Trump.

If Trump walks away unscathed, insurrectionists will think they can attack the Capitol with impunity. And they will be right.
 
Trump supporters: Why haven't you released the search warrant?!

Merrick Garland: Okay, we're going to release the search warrant.

Trump supporters: Why are you releasing the search warrant?!
 
Robert Reich Retweeted ·  
Key point in AG Garland's statement: DOJ was willing to do this quietly, *without* making a public spectacle of the search.

It was *President Trump's* decision to make it public that turned this all into a spectacle (and is leading DOJ to move to unseal part of the application).

Question for those who claim that a former president should not face criminal prosecution because it would set a “dangerous precedent":

Isn’t it more dangerous to set a precedent that a former president will never face accountability for actions that violate the law?

Folks, it's not a "teacher shortage." It's a shortage of jobs that treat educators with the dignity and pay they deserve.
 
By the way, Sinema has received more than $500,000 in campaign donations from private equity group executives in this election cycle alone.

Private equity got a big return on their investment.

Trump’s next coup took yet another step forward.

Kim Crockett — a Big Lie candidate who said the 2020 election was “rigged” — just won the primary for secretary of state in Minnesota.

Be warned: If she wins this fall, she will be part of Trump's plot to steal the 2024 election.

In the last 10 years, 10 of the 14 largest retailer bankruptcies were companies owned by private equity. The result? 597,000 retail workers lost their jobs, and approximately 728,000 lost jobs at suppliers & local businesses.

And healthcare is a human right!

Not a luxury, or privilege. Even as PA remains an abortion care providing state, poor & working folks dont all have access. That's why we must win in Nov, but also repeal Hyde & guarantee #M4A for folks in PA & across the nation
 
Some of the states with the highest rates of diabetes and diabetes deaths are represented by Republican senators who voted against measures to cap insulin prices.

How are politicians able to so consistently vote against the interests of their constituents with impunity?

Wall Street has donated over $2,000,000 to Kyrsten Sinema since 2017.

She single-handedly stopped Democrats from addressing a corrupt tax break for hedge-fund managers and private equity executives.

Could there be a clearer example of how big money corrupts our democracy?
 
Starbucks, Amazon, and other mega-corporations wouldn’t be deploying massive union-busting campaigns if they weren’t terrified of union power.

Starbucks fired an @SBWorkersUnited union leader in Buffalo.

The whole store walked out in protest.

Trump will likely declare his candidacy for president this fall, which means GOP candidates will be under increasing pressure from his base to defend him — a task that will be exceedingly difficult as further evidence of Trump’s criminality emerges. robertreich.substack.com/p/why-republic…

Republicans also nominated a Big Lie proponent for secretary of state in Wisconsin, and while the SoS does not currently have authority over elections in that state, Republican state legislators are pushing legislation to change that. This is a five-alarm fire for our democracy.

The struggle of our time isn’t Left versus Right, Democrats versus Republicans.

It’s democracy versus authoritarianism.
