Senate Democrats spent the past month organizing a big impeachment trial against former President/Ex-Twitter user Donald Trump. Trump was up for his role in the January 6 fracas on the sacred land of Capitol Hill, but this time, the Senate decided against calling witnesses… for reasons. Democrats couldn’t get enough Mitt Romneys to switch sides and vote against the GOP Big Man, and the vote failed.
All this was, of course, bound to happen. Our real issue with Impeachment II, though, is that the circus has kept more important business (Covid Stimulus Relief and the PRO Act) off the voting floor. At this rate, our $2,000 Biden Bucks (or is it $1,400?) won’t arrive until mid-March! Yo, Joe! Where’s our money?
Along with the smaller checks comes money towards school reopenings, which are often pushed against the wishes of teachers who remain unvaccinated with no clear plan for when or how that will occur. The city of Philadelphia has partnered with CHOP to begin vaccinating teachers “by the end of February” (which the Union has called “an encouraging step”), but the process is expected to take until May, which is just in time for kids to return home for summer break! Stay tuned to Philly DSA social media pages for updates on Philadelphia Federation of Teachers’ Actions across the city, as they continue to fight for safe reopenings and vaccinations.
