We did the thing, showed it worked, proved the case, and then were like "well, enough of that!" Some are fighting to reinstate those transformational provisions. Others are fighting to block them. Act accordingly. twitter.com/JStein_WaPo/st…

Opinion: During a time of unprecedented attacks against the transgender community & with today's celebration of Trans Day of Visibility, cisgender allies must step up & use our privilege to speak out & act up. -@benhuelskamp, Exec. Director of @2LOVEboldly dispatch.com/story/opinion/…

The headline is accurate: "Special interest groups seek to protect constitution from special interest groups, special interest groups say" news5cleveland.com/news/politics/…
Hesitant to RT this for fear it will give certain legislators more ideas for suppressing votes—but let's be honest: they don't follow our feed. twitter.com/VoterCenter/st…

There are a lot of things the people of Ohio need our senators to work on right now. This is not one of them. Even as an attempt to use the law to divide people —a strategy that serves some politicians and their sponsors quite well—this is just kind of dumb. twitter.com/darreldrowland…
@iteptweets All right!!!
@maustinw @DavidZipper @CityLab Badly underrated comment.
We need leaders at all levels to include strong clawbacks in *every* deal they cut with corporations. It's common sense, and it protects our resources. twitter.com/ColumbusEA/sta…
.@votercoalition created a toolkit for writing letters in opposition to HJR1: docs.google.com/document/d/1-q…. This bill is designed to make it harder for citizens to amend Ohio’s constitution. It had its first hearing last week and may be headed for a special election this August.
The Ohio Senate passed its version of a bill to shift the duties of the State Board of Ed to a cabinet agency, managed by a political appointee of the gov. Read more: ohiocapitaljournal.com/2023/02/22/sta…. Take a min to send a letter opposing the House version: actionnetwork.org/letters/f6dc2d….
Take a minute to oppose tax cuts for the rich. Add your name to this letter from @PolicyMattersOH to tell your state rep you oppose the flat tax proposed by House Bill 1: actionnetwork.org/letters/ohios-…. You can read more about HB1 here: policymattersohio.org/press-room/202….

It’s simple – if you work extra hours, you should earn extra pay.
Yet millions of American workers are denied the overtime pay they’ve earned because of outdated laws. I’ll never let up in our fight to fix that.

Wild to see gerrymandered politicians who had nothing to say about Ohio's billion-dollar bailout, money laundering, racketeering, and political bribery criminal convictions, now telling voters they should shoot themselves in the foot to get protection from special interests.

As we continue our video series on #thepeoplesbudget, listen to one of our childcare providers Tarrezz Thompson as she explains why this budget season is important to her.
No matter where we’re from or what we look like, our childcare providers deserve better!
A good question for @FrankLaRose and the other extremists pushing anti-democracy legislation. twitter.com/willpetrik/sta…

@MichaelMcIntyre @karenkasler Hey Mike — We're sorry about that; we were quoting Rick Jackson (@rickj903) on today's show — who is absolutely right to be angered by this handout to the wealthy. You can tell we're getting older, confusing former & current hosts.

See you at Drag Brunch this weekend!! 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️
We were going to try to live-tweet @soundofideas today, but it's just non-stop bangers. From objective facts and empirical data to observations about the technical failings of the bill, to simple observations about basic fairness, Debby Geier is absolutely dismantling HB1.
Even @MichaelMcIntyre is angry about how poorly-designed *and* unfair HB1 is.
Hoo boy, @CSULAWSchool's Denny Geier started in on the package of bad ideas in HB1, and hasn't stopped yet...
On @soundofideas today, a discussion of the nonsensical flat-tax proposal known as HB1
