The Pentagon budget should be described as $7.78 trillion if we're doing that thing where we use a ten-year window but don't say so.

Unironically hope Ben Garrison pulls through. Don’t want people to die generally and especially not someone as entertainingly insane as him

Huge news. By an overwhelming 80%+ vote, the Arizona Democratic Party has passed a resolution pledging a vote of NO CONFIDENCE in @KyrstenSinema if she fails to vote to reform the filibuster or doesn't support the #BuildBackBetter reconciliation bill. Enough. #EndTheFilibuster

A no confidence vote by your home state Dem Party is… not good. I don’t care how many glib stories run about how it helps Sinema’s brand to get hit from the left. This is different. Her opposition is making the jump from the far left to the mainstream of the party. That’s a BFD.
