“Non-necessities are tax exempt, but why are we ignoring menstrual products? That really speaks to who’s in power & whose voice is being heard in politics,” Texas Menstrual Equity Coalition. I will once again file legislation to make period products tax exempt & hope my colleagues support.

It doesn’t matter what Republicans call them— vouchers defund our public schools. They’re an entitlement program for rich folks. Say NO to school vouchers!

Families in Texas can *already* send their children to Private + Exclusive Religious Schools. But that's not enough for our Republican Gov Greg Abbott & the Texas GOP:

They want to funnel *Your* Public Taxpayer $ into those Private Religious Orgs as well.

First, Joe Biden passes a bill to increase IRS size to audit conservatives. Then, he sends the FBI to raid President Trump’s home over phony investigation. They lied about his taxes. Lied about Russian collusion. And now this. Biden and the radical left are out of control!

“Adoption doesn’t do what abortion does. It does not end a pregnancy, relieve the burden of pregnancy, avoid the health risks of pregnancy, alleviate the psycho-social harm of relinquishing for adoption. It is not at all a substitute for abortion.”

Honored to receive the 2022 Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction.

We're going to overcome a governor who puts the gun lobby over the people of Texas, and work together to pass commonsense measures that will keep our kids and communities safe.

It spreads— Beto O'Rourke in tiny rural Milam, Texas, pop 1,737. Milam County went 75.5% for Trump in 2020 and 70.5% for Abbott in 2018. Looks like the whole town showed up 🍿. This race will be decided in conventional rural GOP strongholds that overcome metro deficits.

Every year, ~1200 Texans age out of foster care. Less than 10% will graduate college, and a quarter will experience homelessness.

Ashley Miznazi has beautifully documented the struggles and successes of this vulnerable population

Do you want to understand why Texas is the way it is? You have to know who is funding the politicians. 26 people have poured over $56,000,000 in the past 12 months into Texas politics. This illustrates the who and where.

Since the overturn of Roe v. Wade, many conservatives have suggested adoption as a replacement for abortion access. Experts say that adoption still carries trauma and health risks for parents and the children they place for adoption.
