Democratic Rep. Cori Bush is moving her office after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene 'berated' her

GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and her staff allegedly "berated" House Democrat Cori Bush of Missouri, who said Friday she's moving her office away from Greene's "for my team's safety."

Bush also said in a tweet that the Georgia Republican "targeted me & others on social media."

Bush, in reference to the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump, noted that she has "called for the expulsion of members who incited the insurrection from Day 1."

In the wake of that invasion, Bush had introduced a resolution directing the House Ethics Committee to investigate whether any lawmakers who tried to overturn President Joe Biden's electoral victory "violated their oath of office" and "should face sanction, including removal from the House of Representatives."

The article states that the new room assignments were done by direct order of Speaker Pelosi.

Just what are the requirements for elected officials in this country?

Replying to @MichelleObama
She was the personification of beauty, grace, wisdom, and strength, carrying forward a flame that not only guided her for 96 pathbreaking years but lit the way for so many of us.

I’ll miss her dearly, but I smile knowing how many people she inspired, just like me, to walk a little taller, speak a little more freely, and live a little bit more like God intended.

Very good graphic about the undemocratic representation in the US Senate.

Here's an interesting take on the filibuster.

Get rid of the filibuster and pass everything: healthcare, childcare, family leave, minimum wage, etc. Pass it all. Make Republicans have to try to take those things away from people instead of letting Republicans stop those things from ever happening. You’ll win every time.

That might be the only way to show people how much better their lives would be if the United States had social programs like the rest of the industrialized nations.

I've been asleep for the last 6 hours, so I'm not sure if I missed it:

Has Biden fired a cabinet secretary via Twitter yet?

I've talked to my youngest son, my daughter and a close friend tonight.

Everyone has the same feelings of relief and optimism now that Biden and Harris are on the job. Trump is gone and competent, caring people are in charge again.

Hey, all you rightwingers. Does everyone see where Hunter Biden is today?

He is at the United States Capitol with his father, the President of the United States.
