S.1 — 117th Congress (2021-2022)
Introduced in Senate (03/17/2021)
For the People Act of 2021
This bill addresses voter access, election integrity and security, campaign finance, and ethics for the three branches of government.
Specifically, the bill expands voter registration (e.g., automatic and same-day registration) and voting access (e.g., vote-by-mail and early voting). It also limits removing voters from voter rolls.
The bill requires states to establish independent redistricting commissions to carry out congressional redistricting.
Additionally, the bill sets forth provisions related to election security, including sharing intelligence information with state election officials, supporting states in securing their election systems, developing a national strategy to protect U.S. democratic institutions, establishing in the legislative branch the National Commission to Protect United States Democratic Institutions, and other provisions to improve the cybersecurity of election systems.
Further, the bill addresses campaign finance, including by expanding the prohibition on campaign spending by foreign nationals, requiring additional disclosure of campaign-related fundraising and spending, requiring additional disclaimers regarding certain political advertising, and establishing an alternative campaign funding system for certain federal offices.
The bill addresses ethics in all three branches of government, including by requiring a code of conduct for Supreme Court Justices, prohibiting Members of the House from serving on the board of a for-profit entity, and establishing additional conflict-of-interest and ethics provisions for federal employees and the White House.
The bill requires the President, the Vice President, and certain candidates for those offices to disclose 10 years of tax returns.

S.1 was written by one party acting alone.
S.1 was steered through Congress by one party acting alone.
The danger of such extreme changes being made by such tiny, partisan congressional majorities should be clear to everyone. 4:27 PM · Jun 22, 2021
There is much hilarity in the responses:
I wonder if you will remember this tweet when MO Republicans gerrymander US Congressional districts by dividing up Kansas City and leaving only one Democratic district in St. Louis.
Yes, the will of the majority in a democracy would just be absolutely tragic, huh?
WRONG!!! The real danger is the GQP enacting voter suppression bills all across the nation where the states are held by the GQP!! If this is truly a nation of government for and by the people, then voting is a right for ALL the people, not just who the GQP wants to vote!!!
Excuuuuusse me! When I cheat, it’s unacceptable for anyone to hold me accountable unless _I_ lead the charge in making sure I follow the rules!
Things like stacking the Supreme Court? Actions have consequences
It is hard not to see this as disingenuous when you have never once spoken out against Republican partisan voting rights led legislation that were down by one party acting alone
S.1 was written by one party alone because the other party refused to even talk about such a thing. Don’t put the blame for that on the Democrats, but on the Republicans, where it belongs.
The fact that you hate it. Proves it’s good for the country.
What? Yeah man they’re trying to protect the elections from YOU, why do you think you’re owed a say in that protection?
Republicans represent a minority of Americans. Majority rules.
The changes are not extreme. They are trying to protect America from turning into a failed state like Missouri.
Because the other party won’t give up trying to prevent people from voting. That’s your party, senator.
Stop tweeting this shit
Well, gee Roy. Maybe if you voted to bring it to debate you could have fixed some of that. /s
We all know who’s playing partisan games, Roy.
Choosing not to participate was the partisan part, Roy. That’s on you.
Why don’t you want all Americans to be able to vote?
Our Vote is our Voice.
I think your referring to the Republican agenda
Thank God you are not running for re-election.
Probably should have voted to debate it then
You refused to even debate it.
That would be too much work.
Are you still there?
Now do Supreme Court Justices!
Debate your points on the floor then. What are you afraid of?
I don’t think Republicans have a lot of credibility on this particular topic. Your dark-of-night, hidden session partisan bills are legendary.
All of the GOP voter suppression laws in the many states were written by the GOP acting alone. The GOP supported insurrection acting alone. The GOP refused to convict a rouge President – acting alone. The GOP packed the courts – acting alone.
no Republican wanted to participate in the process of ensuring that all voters’ rights are protected, and you think this is a negative of the legislation and not your party?
They’re funny that way.
I didn’t realize you were comatose for the Trump tax package and the failed Obamacare repeal.
That’s funny. Tiny majority. I guess you only like progress if it’s YOUR progress. Would be cool if you weren’t a sore loser. I mean if you had the heart to accept the will of the people and the will of a majority vote. What’s the danger?
C’mon Roy. You’re full of it and you know it.
Yeah, like Republican efforts to suppress voters isn’t partisan. If you can’t win on the issues, you gotta cheat, right? That’s the Republican way.
Tiny, partisan congressional minorities? You mean like leader McConnell refusing to give a sitting Presidents SC nominee a fair hearing? Or ramming thru another nominee 3 weeks prior to an election? Wow. The audacity of your statement is stunning.
Baloney. Republicans have had the opportunity to contribute through it all. And they have steadfastly refused to vote on anything even after negotiations. You know that. Why lie, Roy?
It’s in his nature.
Like the 2017 Tax cuts? Did you object then?
The GOP is acting alone in suppressing voters’ rights across the country. Did you object then?
That only the Democrats care about voters’ rights is an indictment on you, not them.
The GOP REFUSES to work on making access to voting easier for Americans.
Doesn’t that say more about the Republican Party than anything else?
You’re intentionally mischaracterizing the situation. Stop it.
You don’t get to complain after voting against the Jan. 6 commission. Take a seat Roy.
Somebody might take you seriously if they forgot that the only reason the party exists is to stop the Democrats. As if the GOP has acted in good faith bipartisan negotiations this century…
If your position is so strong, why won’t you engage in debate and prove it to the country?
The fact that you won’t even engage in debate implies that your case is not that strong, and perhaps the danger is not as large as you state.
S1 is a bill to make sure everyone who is legally able to vote is able to cast that vote. Why are you against making voting accessible to as many people as possible. Why do make a Democracy worse? Why are you content with diminishing the role of minorities in voting?
Either you believe in democracy or you don’t. Looks like we know what side you fall on. Missourians deserve better.
You’re too damned afraid to even debate it on the senate floor. Don’t spew your lies on Twitter. It’s bipartisan when YOU take part. You voted NO. Because you don’t want to be bipartisan. We got your number Roy.
AGAIN, Lying. The Democrats have been trying to reach across the aisle. Your party has blocked any attempt at bipartisanship. You are actively trying to slice up voter rolls and gerrymander minority rule. Don’t tell me this is harmful to democracy when you want pick your voters.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Less than a month after leftist psycho murders cop at the Capitol, Maxine Waters back to openly inciting violence against law enforcement – but still on social media!
[….] 10:18 AM · Apr 20, 2021
Some of the responses:
Every true patriot understands that Josh Hawley has blood on his hands. Each new gripe or complaint his repute helps to taint as he desperately tries to rebrand. An outcome of naked ambition? For Hawley, unbridled sedition.
1. Of course you already know this but are choosing to pretend that you don’t: you can be confrontational without being violent.
2. Let me know when Maxine Waters votes to overturn a secure presidential election and openly supports a mob ready to invade the US Capitol.
It wasn’t a “leftist psycho,” it was the sort of far-right whackadoodle you keep trying to push corrosive disinformation at. We still haven’t forgotten your raised fist signaling to the militias, Josh. Maybe it’s best if you stay quiet for the rest of the day, considering.
Rich coming from this guy.
If there’s someone who knows a thing or two about inciting violence against law enforcement it’s Josh Hawley.
Remember when you signaled your support to those who assaulted the Capitol Police?
Dude you were part of the insurrection !! Remember you pic with the fist up !!!
Go fuck yourself, traitor.
What is the senate doing to hold the Jan 6 insurrectionists responsible for their actions?They clearly intended to murder congressmen and the US VP. And you encouraged them to do it.
We will never forget that Josh Hawley helped incite the violent Jan. 6 attack against America
It’s absurd that he’s still a senator
You quietly celebrated the 26th anniversary of Timothy McVeigh’s bombing of the Alfred P. Murray Federal Building yesterday, didn’t you?
You did this, Hawley
Less than four months after a radical right-wing white-supremacist mob assaulted the Capitol, killed one cop and injured many more, vandalized, stole, shouted their intent to kill the VP, the Speaker of the House, and others–YOU are still on social media and not in prison.
Less than a few hours after the Capitol was attacked by MAGAs, GOP senators voted against approving the results of a free and fair democratic election.
Remember this, Kid Hitler?
The fecking nerve
It’s common for criminals to try and tamper with the evidence in an effort to whitewash their crimes
What was that hand sign you made on the 6th Josh?
It takes both real effort and a considerable amount of talent to be this dishonest, but Josh Hawley has the goods. No wonder John Danforth dropped him–who would want to be associated with garbage accusations like this? And this man wants to be President.
I think you should probably go ahead and sit this one out, Joshie. January 6 wasn’t really that long ago, was it? [….]
This you giving the Capitol insurrectionists a raised fist in solidarity, Josh?
Oh, Josh, I’d be really careful about going down this road if I were you. For all we know you’re still being investigated for your part in the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Raise your hand if you encouraged an insurrection riot on 6 January 2021!
Finally, a republican with the courage to call out the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) for its undue corporatist influence in pushing legislation affecting all Americans. Oh, wait…
Josh Hawley (r) [2016 file photo].
…it’s Josh Hawley (r).
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Oligarchy defined: The most powerful corporations in America get together to plan how to control legislation in dozens of states
[….] 8:10 PM · Apr 11, 2021
Some of the comments:
How many corporations decided they could no longer abide by states that allowed segregated public accommodations?
Think about how the MLB decided they would no longer abide by state laws that prevented Negros from playing together on baseball fields.
What are you going to do?
Yeah can’t they just let Republicans suppress voters in peace?
See January 6, 2021
Hmm it’s almost like corporate lobbyists have been up to this for years but u liked it then
I’m sure Josh is equally opposed to the work ALEC has been doing for many years (sarcasm)
Like corporations and Republicans never had a cup of coffee together? Nice try, Josh.
No dear, the most powerful co”s in the USA get together to discuss how to stop giving money to states, parties and politicians trying to keep minorities and people of color from voting. You scared? You should be!
Um, y’all are the ones trying to limit who can vote.
Sounds like you should make a stand and return all your corporate contributions.
That’s laugh-out-loud funny! Now tell us how you don’t accept corporate donations, campaign or otherwise, since it would create an appearance of impropriety or an outright conflict of interest.
What’s that? Speak up! We, the People, can’t seem to hear you.
GOP set all this in motion. “Corporations are people”. This was efforts to line the pockets of lawmakers through lobbyists and contributions to campaigns. And this is EXACTLY how it was predicted to play out. Funny how it’s not as cool when against you huh?
I thought Republican values reflected that corporations are like people? Seems like no man, woman, company would want to back such an obvious racist set of voting restrictions.
Oh, but then there’s the GOP!
Think about this, Biden is trying to raise corporate taxes and yet they are still against Republican attempts to limit voter rights. Let that sink in Josh, we’ll wait.
They’ve been doing it forever. They just used to do it behind closed doors and in ways you liked. Maybe if you actually listened to your constituents we wouldn’t have to count on corporations being more in touch with the national pulse.
Oligarchy defined means a small group of people having control of a country or organization.
This is for all the kids who have a history test tomorrow and have seen Josh Hawley’s tweet by mistake
Theocracy is a form of oligarchy…
Isn’t that what you’re going for?
Also, if that is suppose to be a definition you texted there, I think you better actually look up the definition this time.
That’s what they’ve been doing up to this point, now you don’t like it?
Republicans supported Corp. donations saying they deserved a voice too. So now they are speaking up. They listen to their customers and employees. Politicians like you do not listen.
Live with it.
“I love the free market, unless the free market does something that I don’t like”
Oligarchy defined. The people already with power and money in government try to fix the voting to disenfranchise fellow citizens so they can get or stay in govt office.
It’s called listening to their consumers and being smart enough to know that all these voter bills are just voter supression under the guise of “integrity” nothing less.
Fascism defined: the will of the people takes a back seat to desires of those in power without popular consent.
Republicans complaining about corporate influence. That’s rich.
So it’s okay when they conspire with the GOP to weaken labor and environmental standards, but not when they want to protect voting rights? Hypocrisy is so confusing.
Corporations are people, according to Citizens United, so they have right to free speech, #SeditionBoy. Care to rescind that abomination to democracy?
Overturn Citizens United then
What corporations are funding YOU Joshy? Let’s not pretend you are doing this on $5 and $10 donations, m’okay?!
You are saying groups that want to encourage voting are wrong. How can you be in the US Congress and me against more participation in the republic? Did you EVER take any civics class in your life?
A more accurate definition of oligarchy: ALEC’s voter suppression legislation
template being rolled out by gop state legislator minions in dozens of states.
Well, corporations are people, aren’t they? Citizens United not looking so good now, is it?
Fecklessness defined: Josh Hawley seeing rampant voter suppression, doing nothing, then being angry that corporations are more patriotic than he is.
Just like how your GOP colleagues try to control and suppress voters in dozens of states
you know you’ve REALLY taken a wrong turn when even corporate America can see the GOP is a sinking ship.
Looks like you’ll have to do tricks for donations.
But enough about ALEC
You’re such a thin veil
Ever hear of ALEC?
Irony in josh the insurrectionist’s world is clearly dead

Yesterday, from Representative Vicky Hartzler (r):
Roughly 66,000 Missourians were receiving state unemployment benefits during the week ending Feb. 20, the most recent week for which data is available. Benefits that were ending 03/28 are extended to 09/21. Child tax credits will increased to $3,000. Gambling?
Staggering but predictable dishonest is literally the GOP tell.
Vicky how much did you receive last year in Federal subsidies? How much dark money have you received? Self interest, dark money, and corporations are who you serve. You will say and do anything to get reelected to keep that money train rolling.
The bill also contains an additional round of aid for renters and landlords, which could be welcome news in Missouri, where roughly 13 percent of renters surveyed by the Census Bureau in the last two weeks of February said they were not current on rent. Special Interests?
Remember when we spent $100’s of millions on dump trucks golf outings and overpaid at his hotels? Hold on while I go and look for your tweets about how outraged you were at our money going to that special interest.
You’re wrong…here’s my proof…where’s yours?
It has become an across the board Republican talking-point, re: the 9%…they refuse to believe that something outside of DIRECT COVID relief money is designed to provide relief. They are choking on their talking points now.
If only there were ways to make this round not needed. Could have started with not passing insane tax cuts. Maybe we could have had a WH who took the pandemic seriously and encouraged others to do so.
Maybe we wouldn’t need this round to be so big. Oh well.
This 91% thing is garbage. It’s not true and you know it but you’re hoping voters will not do the research and will follow you blindly.
Did not know that Hartzler farms was one of President Biden’s special interest. Congratulations Vicky!
Vicky’s so mad that she isn’t cashing in on this round.
Pretty crazy that Vicky had no problem with reckless spending for the last four years.
I wonder what changed…
What a drama queen you are. We have not forgotten how “your special interests” were served by the former guy when you got to dip your dirty hands into the previous relief package.
Oh I see…. you clowns actually count money when your donors aren’t getting a cut.
what are the special interests? public schools? lol
Missouri is in line for more than $2.5 billion in direct aid and over $1 billion more through an uptick in federal funding for the state’s Medicaid program, which would buoy coffers that have already taken in multiple billions of dollars in previous aid efforts. Gambling?
Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
A democracy is a diverse group of people coming together and trying to reach the solution – it’s a give-and-take. I hope we get back to that.
[….] 12:30 PM · Mar 21, 2021
It’s one of two things. Either Roy Blunt (r) believes we’re all that stupid, or he is. It’s kind of hard to tell the difference these days.
As always, there is much hilarity in the responses:
Is this your apology for not standing up for our democracy when Trump lost?
Or for refusing to meet with Garland?
Or for jamming Barrett through?
Or for refusing to hold Trump accountable for his crimes?
Or is this just “Democrats should unilaterally surrender”?
Bro, remember when you acquitted the guy who tried to overturn an election?
It looks like ticket sales for Roy’s farewell tour are not selling well. It’s not a surprise given the material he’s been part of over the last few years.
The old tactic of revisionism isn’t working. Read the room, get off the stage!
Though true, your words ring hollow considering behavior the last several years. I hope in the time you have remaining as a Senator, you can be what all the people of Missouri need and not just representing a select few.
From Roy Blunt (r)? Not gonna happen.
What you talkin’ about, mister? “Get back to that?” The @gop has never about ‘coming together’ and ‘give-and-take’.
Uhh you didn’t seem to care about coming together when @LeaderMcConnell was ramming through Supreme Court justices
This was not the song you were singing while Trump was in the WH. Then it was ‘cram it through’ or ‘block anything proposed by Democrats.’ So soon you forget. Glad you’ll be gone in 2022.
Where were you during the last four years!?!?!? You’re one of the enablers.
Well, before then, too.
Dude. Your side did nothing but TAKE for years and years and years. Spare us the sanctimony now.
When will you start practicing this?
You go first. Tired of the things the GOP does and then tries to play the victim.
Arsonist laments the prevalence of fire.
Hahahahaha—-you slay me!
Your words are hollow. You’ve already sowed your legacy. You sold out your country to make a buck.
Your party’s at fault, insurrectionist.
Talk is cheap and in your case, worthless. You sold your soul to the Party and the Party is really nothing but everyone for themselves….#YouFailedMissourians #YouFailedThisCountry
You’ve got to be kidding me? Resign.
Do you think we are stupid? That we don’t remember the last 4 years of you doing whatever you wanted with no input from democrats? Fuck off
And what have you done to move us back towards that? The answer is nothing in case you are still searching for it. You’ve shown nothing but cowardice over the last four years and we as Missourians are lucky you’re quiting. Tool
What a hypocrisy – what group and what solution – you were ennobling this con Trump over the constitution and democracy and the country and you wanted to destroy a fair election so this con Trump can say in office and you are talking about coming together- you are evil and fake
Vicky: Where is your condemnation of those members of the House and Senate, members of your party, who, through their words and deeds, helped facilitate the death of Brian Sicknick and attempted to overthrow our government?
she was one of them
What hypocrisy! Your refusal to acknowledge election results played a supporting role in this tragedy. You have refused to impeach the man who caused the riot that led to the officer’s death. You should be ashamed.
Narrator: “She isn’t.”
HOW ABOUT APOLOGIZING FOR YOUR HELP CAUSING THE INSURRECTION THAT GOT HIM KILLED.
If you go, be sure to apologize for being part of the insurrection.
Honor him by convicting Trump and then resigning
ummmm you helped kill him
And we remember that you signed up to overthrow the results of the free and fair election thus giving oxygen to this group of domestic terrorists to take apart our democracy.
We won’t forget. You are culpable, look at his casket and know that you helped do this.
Let’s face it , Vickster.
The one and only reason you are tweeting this is because you got ratioed badly on your last tweet.
That officer is dead because of your actions.
These heroes died because you incessantly lied to your kooky constituents. Those thugs tried to finish the job YOU started trying to overthrow the election results.
Please spare us the empty posturing.
Those heroes died because of an angry mob fired up by lies told by Trump and perpetuated by Hartzler.
Hartzler has yet to admit to to those lies or apologize so the notion that she has any plans to honor anyone is ghoulish.
Weren’t you part of the conspiracy to commit sedition group? His death is on your hands.
You were complicit in his death through your failure to accept the results of a free & fair election where Biden won overwhelmingly.
You fed hatred that resulted in our nation’s capitol building being overrun by terrorists.
Sticknick deserved better than you & so does America
Too bad you didn’t think about our Capital Officers before you supported terrorists who killed one and beat and maimed others.
How can you sleep at night knowing you participated in an insurrection that caused his death? Shame on you.
He sacrificed his life to protect Congress from the angry trump supporters. The people that believed lies about the election and you did NOTHING to dispute those lies. You let them grow and fester until these terrorists came to believe they could overthrow the government. You are…responsible for this officer’s death by being complicit. You chose not to protect democracy. I will never vote for a republican again after the insurrection that the GOP allowed to happen.
U.S. Senator Josh (R-Mo.) is filing a counter-complaint today against seven Senate Democrats who called for an ethics investigation into his objection to certifying Pennsylvania’s electoral count. The Democrats admitted in their complaint that Hawley’s electoral college objection was lawful. In a letter to the seven Democrat Senators, Senator Hawley called out the senators for their historic partisan abuse of the Senate ethics process and potential coordination with dark money groups.[….]
Governor Mike Parson @GovParsonMO
I want ALL Missourians to know that if you are sick, we will take care of you. 9:17 AM · Dec 8, 2020
Some of the responses:
What are YOU doing to take care of ALL Missourians? Have you implemented Medicaid expansion? Have you prevented rural hospitals from closing? Have you slowed down COVID transmission?
I’d much rather know that you will help prevent me from getting sick. You know… be preventative with masks instead of reactionary with ICU beds. Crazy talk, eh?
Nurses willl take care of you. This man won’t. Blame him when you can’t find a nurse to be at your bedside.
As my husband gets ready to go to work in the hospital today I want you to know that you are a disgrace to the office of Governor of Missouri. We are drowning out here and you claim to be saving us. Gtfoh.
Remember when you wouldn’t support expanding Medicaid? I’ll wait
Ummmmm….actually not so much.
How did you feel after touring Covid units at hospitals in Missouri? Oh wait, that hasn’t happened yet.
‘Republicans campaigned hard against [medicaid] expansion, with Parson among the most outspoken in opposition.’
Have a statewide mask mandate and watch those numbers go down. Look at Australia, NZ and Taiwan. They’re about back to normal. This is a Failure!
Japan has 20 times Missouri’s population, but has 50% less Covid deaths. They wear masks and their leaders don’t downplay the virus.
… but we won’t do anything to stop you from getting sick.
fixed it for you.
So far away from the reality of normal people, he thinks you can just get medical care without coverage, and doesn’t understand what “medical bankruptcy” is. Prevention, not an option in his world, either.
You heard it here people, just send your medical bills to Gov. Parson. He’s going to take care of it. /s
With all due respect, this is a misleading tweet. We need staff to run those vents and take care of those beds. I work for a busy Level 1 Trauma Center and personally haven’t accepted an ICU patient in weeks. Missourians are going to Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota, etc for care.
“We’ll take care of you”
But only once we actively make ensure that every citizen of Missouri contracts COVID by refusing to do any preventative measures in order to serve our Wall Street donors and sociopathic political ideology.
Can you please also focus on PREVENTING us from getting sick? It is no comfort that help only starts if I get covid. I would prefer to be in a place that prioritizes prevention over emergency medical care.
When is Medicaid expansion going into effect?
A lot of us lost a job this year and find ourselves in the hole where we can’t get Medicaid AND we can’t get any subsidies on the marketplace to afford insurance, so we’re totally screwed.
.. go on… ? Explain how you are actually doing this. Rural & urban areas are overwhelmed this week. Use that CARES money to help suffering people.
Covid is a complete disaster for the rural Midwest and was largely due to your political pandering and inaction. This message is a false promise and we still have no actionable strategies or plans in place. What should we do? Really, make a call.
What if instead you, I don’t know, implemented a mandate that would, just maybe, keep more people safe….so you didn’t HAVE to take care of us. Because what you are saying is not what the healthcare professionals are saying.
That’s a lie. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Remember that oldie but goodie, Mike? This statement is some of your worst lip service yet! MANDATE MASKS like the healthcare workers of this state have been begging you to.
It’s almost as if we’ve mismanaged our way into Medicare for All.
But, as the Post Dispatch reports you continue , and only God knows why, to ignore state wide mitigation efforts, thereby contributing to the continuing spread of Covid in Missouri. This is unbelievable incompetence and dereliction of duty Sir.
Sadly, Missouri elected the Governor it deserves.
Except the seniors who are being held as prisoners and away from their family because of your negligence and incompetence. You will be older one day Governor but as a Christian I will not want the same to be done to you for what you have allowed to be done to them.
Here’s a CRAZY idea, do more to KEEP PEOPLE FROM GETTING SICK with a mask mandate. And I wonder how many people will get sick from your Governor’s Mansion open house? It’s great that you open it to the people of Missouri at Christmas but NOT DURING A PANDEMIC IN A RED COUNTY!
How about putting a plan in place so that people aren’t as likely to get sick and have to go to the hospital. Maybe be proactive instead of reactive when dealing with a deadly pandemic.
How about covering us before we get sick?
That’s great, but when are you going to address the lack of rural hospitals or your lack of action throughout most of the pandemic or even not implementing Medicaid expansion? Words are meaningless without action, Mr. Governor.
Notice he doesn’t reassure that we have enough properly trained critical care physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists.
So you’re going to be volunteering next to nurses in COVID wards to make sure everyone is taken care of?
Oh god, I think I’d rather take my chances w understaffed, overworked nurses than gov heehaw. Thanks for the nightmares
Is that why you fought Medicaid expansion? Here’s a novel idea, why don’t you do something that might PREVENT us from getting sick? LIKE A MASK MANDATE
You kicked thousands of kids off Medicaid.
Oh, that’s a relief. What’s the address of the governor’s mansion for forwarding of ginormous medical bills?
You covering medical expenses too?
Given the republican parties response to Covid19 “take care of you” sounds like a threat.
This tweet is like me telling my kids its OK to play with broken glass because we’ve got plenty of bandaids.
Governor, thank you for not giving in to the pearl clutchers and forcing face diapers on us.
So where do I send my medical bills?🖒
Fact check: this is false.
You need a better stand up routine.
Take care of Missourians how? Free body bag?
By closing rural hospitals?
All?! That sounds pretty… universal.
Is this a joke? Missouri’s handling of COVID has been an embarrassing disaster.
I mean, YOU aren’t taking care of anyone
Making this post takes nerve I’ve never seen before.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An official at the United States Postal Service confirmed Friday that four mail-processing machines have been removed at its Kansas City, Missouri, facility.
The removal of machines comes as part of changes made by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, according to a report from CNN.
The USPS official said that in addition to the four machines removed in Kansas City, the USPS had removed two machines in Springfield and one in Wichita “for efficiency and lower mail volume.”
“We are seeing the destruction of the postal service,” U.S. Rep Emanuel Cleaver II, a Missouri Democrat who represents KCMO, said. “I don’t think there are any questions about it.”
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported Friday that Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft was notified in late July that the USPS may not be able to return all mail-in ballots to election authorities by the Nov. 3 election.
That delay could invalidate some ballots for the general election, when the country will elect a president and Missouri will elect a governor, among other races.
That was then, this is now.
A campaign piece, from Uniting Missouri, the PAC propping up Governor Mike Parson (r), arrived in our mail yesterday:
“Officials say you should return your mail or absentee ballot now to ensure it is received and counted in time.”
No shit, Sherlock. Who’s responsible for this state of affairs?
Wait a minute. In Donald Trump’s (r) world aren’t mail-in ballots rife with fraud?
This right wingnut mail piece is just oozing cognitive dissonance and gaslighting. Not that their target audience would notice.
