Twitter Aaron Carr: Re Louisiana & Mississippi

I disagree that cost of housing is why homelessness is low. Prison labor is an important part of the economic profile for Mississippi and Louisiana and Louisiana is number 1 and Mississippi number 3 for incarceration rate.

Prison labor, the new plantation system where the taxpayer covers the cost of housing the laborers.

These are the people who have been buying our anti-democratic government and policies while tax money protected their multinational investments via the U.S. Military power and support via the tax supported State Department and around the world embassies and patent enforcement. They have had a free ride on the middle and upper middle class taxpayers.

Senior Democrats are preparing a sweeping new tax plan that would aim to raise hundreds of billions of dollars from the fortunes of Americaís roughly 700 billionaires, an abrupt shift in the partyís approach to funding a large expansion of the safety net.

But even after Democrats seized control of the White House and Congress, they havenít been able to fully coalesce around a tax and spending plan, with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) expressing opposition to higher tax rates.

Now, an unexpected compromise appears to be emerging on the billionaire tax proposal. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) is drafting the plan, and senior Biden officials and other senior Democrats are cautiously optimistic that Sinema and other centrist lawmakers will support the effort, according to interviews with three congressional aides and two administration officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive negotiations.

It is uncertain whether the plan will be backed by every Senate Democrat and almost every House Democrat, the necessary threshold for its passage.

Pivot! From daily coverage of the red state COVID disaster to, no coverage.

I don't think there was any discussions last week after weeks of constant coverage, what happened?

I had to do some searches to find any any information and searched by state name and governor's name, found this bit on DeSantis coverage.

Where the claim is the Democratic were getting too much time on television talking about it or something?
