Congressional Republicans continue to lie about their agenda, just as they've done for years. They continue to push legislation that sounds reasonable on its face but actually seeks to undermine the rights and freedoms of Americans and cement their hold on power. They continue to sow division and animosity in social media, in public speeches, and in legislation. They continue to remain silent about the treachery of the insurrection and ongoing deception from Trump.

Fortunately, Indivisible and INCO continue our work, too. 
We encourage you to check out Indivisible's MAGA Messaging Decoder Resource.
