And there's been really no negotiation on the Build Back Better Act.
Let's just wait, this is a negotiation and we've got to continue to move this forward, but The Hyde Amendment is something that the majority of the country does not support, one in four women have had an abortion and need to have reproductive care in a very, very important time when those protections are being rolled back.

Bernie Sanders on Monday has consistently and recently multiple times said he doesn't want these kinds of people in the movement, but to focus on these folks really erases women and folks of color and the tens of millions of people who literally bring an incredible energy everywhere they go... These women of color, black and brown folks, don't deserve to have Bloomberg paint us and stereotype us in this way.
The attorney general has made it clear -- through his broad support for sweeping presidential power and authority and his past criticism of the special counsel's inquiry -- that he is not an unbiased participant.
