McConnell works to kill Manchin’s pipe dream as payback for IRA

The Republican leader is whipping up Republicans to vote against a plan by Chuck Schumer to pair Joe Manchin’s pet fossil fuel pipeline bill with a must-pass government funding bill as payback for voting for Biden’s historic Inflation Reduction Act. Ironically, this would be great for progressives, who deeply oppose Manchin’s plans for even more climate-polluting natural gas pipes.


Appeals court blocks California ban on for-profit prisons
Look, folks. We’re obviously not going to stop locking up human beings at alarmingly high rates. Why not (let a handful of crooked corporations) make a few (billion) bucks while we’re at it? It’s the American way!

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton fled his home to avoid being served with subpoena, court record says

Biden’s student loan cancellation plan to cost $400 billion, Congressional Budget Office estimates
The CBO admitted the estimate was “highly uncertain” —and even if it’s not, that’s less than half the amount we spend on the military EVERY single year. We can afford it, folks.

Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene among Republicans celebrating election of Italian neofascist

Today’s Action: Take action to help Hurricane Fiona victims in Puerto Rico!

More than 600,000 Puerto Ricans still lack power nine days after Hurricane Fiona made landfall and pummeled the island with 30-plus inches of rain. The full scope of the damage is massive and still coming into focus —widespread mudslides and flooding have washed away bridges, ripped pavement from roads, and left millions of Puerto Ricans without clean drinking water. Fiona arrived on the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Maria, a catastrophic flooding event many parts of the island still haven’t recovered from. Puerto Rico’s infrastructure, already lacking from decades of neglect from the US government, was compromised even further by Fiona’s devastating landfall.

Puerto Rico needs aid now. We cannot allow Puerto Ricans to wait another five years for crucial infrastructure to be rebuilt in their communities following yet another natural disaster — especially not when America claims their land as US territory. It is our moral duty and obligation to contribute to their recovery.

Trusted local organizations in Puerto Rico need critical donations now. If you have the means, check out this Twitter thread of mutual aid and community-led groups doing the hard work and make your donation today. Every second matters, and every dollar counts!
