  • Embarrassing media coverage, Progressives on the move in Texas, Biden good but should be bolder.
  • Biden calls out Republicans for the $2T tax cut for the 1% as his Rescue Plan created 7.5M jobs #SOTU: President Biden used his State of the Union Address to call out Republicans for tax cuts for the 1% as his rescue plan helped every American.
  • Progressives Applaud as Casar Wins Big, Cisneros Forces Runoff With Cuellar:“Together, we’re taking our fight to the halls of Congress—to fight and deliver on passing Medicare for All, protecting reproductive rights, creating good jobs, and fixing our power grid,” said Greg Casar. Former Austin City Council member Greg Casar handily won the Democratic primary for an open seat in Texas’ 35th Congressional District on Tuesday while progressive immigration attorney Jessica Cisneros forced Rep. Henry Cuellar—a corporate-funded Democrat under FBI investigation—into a runoff contest in the state’s 28th district. Casar, a democratic socialist endorsed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), had over 61% of the vote after results were tallied in more than 95% of precincts in the 35th district, which stretches from East Austin into San Antonio. The district is a Democratic stronghold, meaning Casar’s primary victory likely secures him a seat in Congress.
