How can ANY person view the hours of video taken at the United States Capitol building and claim January 6 was a peaceful protest?

How can ANYONE trust Republicans when they NOW claim January 6 was just like any other tourist visit?

During that January 6 riot and ensuing insurrection, Republican Representative Andrew Clyde was photographed, looking absolutely terrified, standing behind a Capitol Police guard with his service weapon drawn to defend the House from the insurrectionists. Today, that same man claims the riotous insurrectionists were just like any other peaceful tourists!


The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

The American people want action, not never-ending "negotiations" and obstructionism, and they will not come out and vote for a party that does not deliver. And if the Republicans do regain control of Congress, we can be sure that the economy will move steadily forward toward a system in which the rich get richer thanks to increased corporate domination. We can be sure that the climate crisis will intensify, diminishing the likelihood of our children and grandchildren living in a healthy and habitable environment. We can be sure that our government will drift away from democracy, as voter suppression, dark money and conspiracy theories continue to dominate our political system.

This is an unprecedented moment in American history. The Democrats in Congress must move forward boldly, protecting the working families of our country and restoring faith in government. Yes, the future of the country is at stake.

White House stands firm against increasing gas tax as Biden, senators prepare to meet on infrastructure


President Joe Biden's administration reasserted Monday that it would not support increasing the federal gas tax, a levy on fuel that hasn't been changed since the 1990s, as he and a bipartisan group of senators try to hash out a way to pay for a massive infrastructure plan.

A bipartisan group of 21 senators identified public-private partnerships, redirecting money previously allocated for COVID-19 relief, and "indexing" the federal gas tax annually to match inflation as possible funding options for their $1.2 trillion infrastructure framework, according to a draft outline obtained by USA TODAY.

But the White House, which supports enforcing a minimum tax on corporations to pay for infrastructure, made clear Monday that raising the gas tax is off limits. Several Senate Democrats – including members of the bipartisan group of senators – also have objected.

For the record, we stand at an inflection point between democracy and authoritarianism, between inclusion and white nationalism, between stewardship of the planet and climate catastrophe. There can be no compromise between these goals, no halfway point between these values.
