Ocasio-Cortez raises $1 million for Texas relief in 4 hours

https://www.pix11.com/news/national-news/ocasio-cortez-raises-1-million-for-texas-relief-in-4-hours

While conservatives like Dinesh Dsouza are making comical excuses that Cruz couldn't actually do much to help his constituents, REAL LEADERS from other states are humiliating him by actually helping.

Think of it; when was the last time you heard of a single republican going out of their way to help a blue state that was struggling? The GOP has been fighting against state covid relief funding, self-admittedly because it would help blue states. Never mind that when CA had blackouts, conservatives were dancing on the graves of the people who died in order to score political points against the left. Disgusting.

And it is up to 2 million last i heard.

Someone correct me if any of this is wrong. I've been to Texas multiple times, but I'm no expert.

As far as I know, it's a Republican run state. They have their own power grid, not part of the grid shared with its neighboring states. In other words, they wanna mind their own business (not be regulated by Federal laws/rules, which seems to be the dream of Republicans). Also, the power grid is largely privatized?


Who knew this would be a recipe for disaster?  Shocked People concerned with larger profit instead of investing in infrastructure to keep it working? No way!



And as usual, it's ordinary people who will suffer.

What's worse is this happened a decade ago and they still did nothing to prepare.

Investing money on something that might not be needed isn't something you might do unless you have to. Bigger profits are always more important.

So when it turns out you just didn't care, you gotta blame someone.



Speaking of Biden, he didn't hesitate sending help to s state that's run by Republicans.

President Joe Biden is the legitimate winner of the November election now that electoral votes have been counted, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., said Sunday on ABC's "This Week," but he would not say the election wasn't "stolen."

By continuing to endorse this charade, the whole party is undermining democracy.

What's the status on the stimulus check?  No delays in tax returns as far as I'm concerned.  Mine's back and spent.

Senator Hawley got a standing ovation at CPAC for saying he objected to the electoral college certification.

This is where we're at, people. Standing ovations for trying to violate democracy.

That's actually a good thing.  Make no mistake, this guy intends to run for president some day.  The more he a lines himself with certain groups, the further from that goal he gets.

House about ready to vote on the stimulus package and then to the senate.

Goal is to have a package on Biden's desk by mid-March.

I won't file my taxes til April 14th.  We have to pay this year (as we did last year) due to the Trump "cuts". Ain't doing that til the last possible minute. Wink

If I have to pay, I wait until the last minute too.  I bet they give an extension.

We'll see what happens to the $15 min wage.  I'm betting the whole bill goes back to the house for another vote after the senate alters it.  That's a damn good wage here where I am.  Hell, Boeing starts their painters at $12 and that's a union job.  They get shit for experience but they train them.

People also thought Trump couldn't possibly win. When you have a system like the electoral college that considers certain votes more important than others, tyranny of the minority is possible. Just look at the polls, look at CPAC, look at right wing media; they're all showing strong support for the most radical people in the country and next to zero for the holdouts like Romney. The right wing media machine has gripped rural America in a panic over their fear-mongering and now it's even out of their control. Unless we do some real democratic reform like abolishing the EC, this country may be victim to the whims of an increasingly radical rural fringe that is completely untethered from reality.

All votes are equal, some are just more equal than others...
