3. Republicans in Texas, Idaho, South Dakota, Iowa, and more states are trying to make abortion illegal, imposing evangelical Christian Nationalist religious views on pregnant peoples' bodies. A woman in Texas was charged with murder after a self induced abortion. See Article Here. Do these Republicans look like people who believe in #Liberty, or the #FreedomToThrive?
4. Biden/Harris administration has lowered the deficit by $354 billion, once again cleaning up the preceding Republican administration's mistakes. Deficit hawks should be pleased. The more people are employed, the more the deficit goes down! #DeficitReduction #FreedomToThrive
5. Republicans continue to double down on anti-American, anti-patriotic actions. a. Don Trump Jr texted Mark Meadows to plan the coup just 2 days after the election, and coverage was buried in the NYT. b. There is a 7-hour gap in White House call logs on Jan. 6 (in contrast to 20 minutes missing in Watergate). What would these call logs reveal about the attempted overthrow of the government? Also, there's virtually no record of gifts received by TFG and staff the last year of the Trump Administration. The grift continues. c. 63 House Republicans voted against supporting NATO.

Support our work
I won't pull the BS pleas for money because of a deadline or include a message demanding you support MPD if you support Democracy. However, I will ask politely that you chip in what you can, because we are working hard to create content and amplify it to help blue candidates in November. We are all volunteers and need funds for subscriptions to bring you better content. Can you chip in $5 today? Thank you!
