President-Elect Biden:
“I will work just as hard for those of you who didn’t vote for me,” he said, “as I will for those who did.”

Some might view these words as corny. But the reality is, real Presidents say them. And in difficult times, they prove it.

It's good to finally hear these words again and from a man who clearly means them. #Biden46

I would assume Republicans will vote and we should act accordingly.

If Dems want a chance, we need record turnout for an off-cycle election.

Get busy and help Stacey Abrams in getting the vote out.

Act as though we are fighting as an underdog because in Georgia, we are.

Rebekah Jones is one of the heroes of this horrible year. Rounding up the scientists for telling the truth? Floridians should demand DeSantis' resignation.

Meanwhile, DeSantis is loosening standards even more and has called for packing the stadium for the Super Bowl. People are dying in Florida and we don’t know how many. Their own governor wants to drive the death rate higher for his "economy" but won't pay state residents who qualify their unemployment.

There's a reason he's called Ron DeathSantis.

"Experts said the early announcement of a CDC director, whose appointment does not require Senate confirmation, took many by surprise. In previous administrations, it has taken months to make the appointment."

I don't think his decisions (and preparedness) to move quickly on these things should be a huge surprise. Biden was a Senator for more than thirty-five years, and VP for two terms. He has had a LOT of opportunities to observe and participate in administration transitions and staff/cabinet appointments & confirmations. And he just left the White House less than four years ago, it's not like he doesn't have plenty of contacts.

Plus this position is absolutely vital to fill with competence. And this is that. #Biden46

-45 and the Republicans did not start the Farmers to Families Food Box program for the recipients of the food It wasn't for the citizens who needed help. 

It was for the farmers who were Republican supporters---and now that their support can't produce any kind of meaningful result that Trump and the Republicans want, there is no more money.

This is how Republicans have treated public assistance and workers for years and one of the many reasons I fight to remove all Republicans from office.

A $4.5 billion Trump food program is running out of money early, leaving families hungry and food assistance charities scrambling:

@TonyStark

This makes me cry. Trump is getting millions of dollars from people who believe he lost the election. Does he care about all of these citizens? No, of course not. Worse are all of the Republicans who were re-elected and them also doing nothing. Including my governor DeathSantis.

Why aren't my taxes being used for feeding people?

What Larry Hogan doesn't realize is that the GOP is the party it wants to be.

The GOP has been that party for a long time.

We should have a Government that cares about the people, especially while taking a salary paid for by those very people. Republicans have shown far too often, even before Trump, they will never care or do what’s right.

The judge of science is science itself not a person who barely understands or has not even the slightest notion of medicine. Many studies show the difference between spread of droplets form the mouth with and without a mask. It's a very big difference.

If your mind is made up then and you have your own agenda, of course you don't look at the total picture, you look at what confirms your position. I will be at the head of the line for vaccine.
