Sarah Burris: Sen. Inhofe put Trump on speakerphone while in a restaurant, and someone else recorded the conversation. Trump said he didn't want a bill to pass that changed the names of bases from Confederate names, & it had already passed!

Alex Cawthorne Gaines: I want to see more creative solutions for our housing crisis. There's insufficient housing stock to give to people; there are people who've been on waiting list for vouchers for years. We need to plug holes in our safety net.

Nancy Bailey: My daughter is 28, but if she were school age, I would not send her to school. I would work closely with her teachers & the PTA. I think many teachers did a great job with virtual learning in the spring.

Stephen Herzenberg: Our policy makers need to recognize where the economy is going & shape that economy so we have good union jobs while stopping air & water pollution. We have the chance to turn a corner here & reimagine a better future.

Michael Linden: We should be paying people to stay home. Unemployment is roughly enough to keep them whole but it's not enough to keep them from going back to work. Maybe instead of an extra $600/week, people should get an extra $1000 or $1200
