I will never forget what our outbreak was like, and the Governor needs to be held accountable for hiding what his policies caused.


Recently, after weeks of mounting allegations, a top aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo was recordedadmitting他的政府有covered up the real death toll in New York State nursing homes, withholding data because they feared federal investigations after mandating that nursing homes accept Covid positive patients.

I work in a nursing home in New York State so for me, a story has never felt so personal.

In the fight over the future of the Republican party that’s been taking place arguably ever since Donald Trump decided to campaign for the Presidency, it’s been fairly clear that the former President has won the fight. Unfortunately for Wyoming’s Representative Liz Cheney, the future of her leadership position within the House Republican party appears grim after she decided that she refused to go along with the lie that Trump had the Presidency stolen from him. Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise, the most powerful Republicans in the House, are apparently backing我的Congresswoman,Elise Stefanik., to replace her.

随着Covid案件继续激增世界各地和印度,似乎每天都有一天的案件纪录数,拜登administration has been facing mounting pressureto use its authority to waive vaccine patents as the大多数民主党人in the House call on him to do so, and for obvious reasons. Apparently, his advisors are split, with some arguing he has a moral imperitive to act and others incredibly making the argument that they shouldn’t do it because they don’t know for certain if it will affect the global supply.


Healthcare should not be privatized, and I wish the President felt the same way.

There’s no way she’ll win the California gubernatorial race, but she’ll certainly get the media attention she’s after.

After weeks of expectations, socialite Caitlyn Jenner announced her run for Governor of California, following a successful recall campaign against current Governor Gavin Newsom. While the media has certainly enjoyed engaging in speculations about her intentions to run and been interested in how this campaign plays out considering Jenner is a trans woman running as a Republican, it’s admittedly been difficult for me — and I’m sure for others as well — to even take it seriously.

In the aftermath of the 2020 election, Republican lawmakers have effectively been forced to choose sides in a deep split between the old guard in the party represented by the Mitch McConnell’s and the Liz Cheney’s of the party, and the new guard who found a leader in Donald Trump. Among those who recently felt compelled to at least rhetorically adopt more populist messaging and make clear to their constituents that they were in Donald Trump’s corner was Marco Rubio. …

It wasn’t long ago that New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo was on the precipice of being forced to step down, with an administration facing scandals related not only to his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic in nursing homes, but nine women coming forward to show a pattern of sexual misconduct from Cuomo as well. After Biden swooped in to say that the investigation should play out, pressure for the Governor to step down fizzled almost as quickly as it began. But that hasn’t stopped the Cuomo from making some incredibly revealing comments concerning his attitude towards these women.


Joe Biden absolutely made the right decision. But now can we give others a raise, too?

这不是秘密,我发现民主党人的斗争为15美元的最低工资令人难以置轻的令人失望,就像许多其他人一样。After hiding behind the advisory opinion of an unelected Senate staffer known as the parliamentarian, the party simply shrugged their shoulders and moved on from using budget reconciliation to give America’s lowest income workers a raise they haven’t had since 2009. Evidently though, the Biden administration has decided to make some moves, reporting that the President decided to sign an executive order for a $15 minimum wage for Federal contractors.

On Twitter, the President写道:


How much longer can lawmakers justify this?

Of all the reasons I supported Bernie Sanders’ run for President in both 2016 and 2020, there’s no denying that his stance on healthcare was what drew me to his campaign in the first place. It is thanks to Bernie that Medicare for All was brought to the forefront of the conversation concerning healthcare, and Americans have begun to question a system in which a profit-motivated company gets such significant influence on their care. Unfortunately, President Joe Biden infamously vowed that he would veto medicare for all if it ever came to his desk, citing “cost”, but promised the American…
