Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Elizabeth Warren, Cori Bush, Joe Biden, and more.

Non Compos Mentis Awards

“With Roe gone, it’s more important than ever to crack down on so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that mislead and deceive patients seeking abortion care.” —Senator Elizabeth Warren

“The House is ready … to finally repeal the Hyde Amendment. The Senate needs to step up — the Senate must step up — to get rid of this racist, draconian, discriminatory policy.” —Congresswoman Cori Bush

“We must really discuss this — the use of federal lands for [abortion] services.” —Cori Bush

The BIG Lies

“Oil and gas companies are engaging in price gouging. This is why folks are paying record prices while corporations enjoy record profits.” —Senator Raphael Warnock (“You voted 4 times to cancel the Keystone Pipeline and against domestic drilling. Quit blaming others — you created this problem.” —U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker)

“We are stronger economically than we have been in history.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

“You all remember what the economy was like when I was elected: a country in a pandemic with no real plans how to get out of it. Millions of people out of their jobs, families in cars — remember? — backed up for literally miles, waiting for a box of food to be put in their trunk. … The previous administration lost more jobs on its watch than any administration since Herbert Hoover — that’s a fact — all based on failed trickle-down economics that benefitted the wealthiest Americans and hit the middle class and working people the hardest. But we came in with a fundamentally different economic vision: an economy that grows from the bottom up and the middle out. It’s good for everyone.” —Joe Biden

“The first year I was president, I cut the federal deficit by $350 billion. … By the end of September, I will have cut the federal budget by $1 trillion 400 billion — cut the deficit. So, when they start talking about you being big spenders, just point them to that.” —Joe Biden

“We got a long way to go because of inflation and because of the — I call it ‘the Putin tax increase.’” —Joe Biden

Fearmongering

“You know how hard it is to get anything done in Congress. Imagine what it would mean if Republicans had their way. Look, the ultra-MAGA Republicans — Congress is deciding every five years whether … Medicare and Social Security would be continued or discontinued or slashed. It’s shameful.” —Joe Biden

Yellow Journalism

“The Rise of the Far-Right Latina — Representative Mayra Flores is one of three Republican Latinas vying to transform South Texas politics by shunning moderates and often embracing the extreme.” —The New York Times

And Last…

“I was born in Burgos, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and raised with strong Conservative values to always put God and Family first. I have received only hate from the liberal media and constantly [been] told by the left to go back to Mexico. They don’t support us immigrants, they only use us for political power and don’t care about our well-being. I am here now and I won’t allow them to continue taking advantage of my people. The NYT knows nothing about me or our culture.” —Mayra Flores
