Make no mistake about it. This is a blatant attempt by Trump's handpicked Postmaster General (and campaign contributor) to sabotage the Postal Service, suppress the vote and undermine democracy. The Postmaster General should either resign or be removed from office — immediately.
The Postal Service has informed states that they’ll need to pay first-class 55-cent postage to mail ballots to voters, rather than the normal 20-cent bulk rate. That nearly triples the per-ballot cost. https://prospect.org/coronavirus/unsanitized-federal-benefit-extension-anger-unemployment-evictions/
“None of this is true. Trump did not ‘extend’ federal unemployment benefits—he cut them. Trump did not impose an ‘eviction moratorium’ of any kind. And Trump's payroll tax deferral is optional for employers...The point was to generate positive headlines.” https://popular.info/p/trump-dupes-the-press
This may be my most important tweet in a really long time. I hope you will read it and share it because it's shameful what is happening.
After carrying Russian anti-Hillary ads in 2016 paid for in rubles (claiming it didn’t put 2 & 2 together), @Facebook now refuses too take down Trump ads which its own fact-checking program has concluded are full of BALD-FACED LIES. Please read. https://alfranken.com/read/facebook-does-it-again
Mitch McConnell has campaigned against incumbent Democratic Senators. Why in the world doesn’t every Democrat in the Senate from Chuck Schumer down travel to KY and vigorously campaign against Mitch. Do something Democrats, don’t just complain about his unconscionable behavior!
