Democrats account for nine of the top 10 members of Congress who've most mentioned the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection on social media and other public communications, according to data from Quorum provided to Axios.

Why it matters: A year ago, the Trump rally-turned-deadly-riot threatened the safety of senators and House members on both sides of the aisle. But Democrats have been most persistent in their criticism of the unprecedented event, according to the analysis.

By the numbers: In total, members of Congress made 12,853 mentions of Jan. 6 across press releases, floor statements, newsletters to constituents, tweets and Facebook posts from Jan. 7, 2021, to Tuesday morning, Quorum found.

  • Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) mentioned "January 6th," "Jan 6th" or "insurrection" 261 times — more than any other House member or senator.
  • Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) used Twitter to bash Republicans over the insurrection, such as Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.).
A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.
  • Meanwhile, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) was the only Republican to make the top 10, according to the data.
  • Many of his tweets focused on a baseless theory that the FBI was involved in the attack.

Why it matters: Katko was one of the 10 House Republicans who voted in favor of former President Trump's second impeachment.

Why 401(k) rollovers are so annoying

If you happened to change jobs recently, you may have tried to transfer your retirement account from your former employer into an Individual Retirement Account or your new employer's 401(k) plan. If so, you probably encountered a bureaucratic gantlet — and you're not alone.

Why it matters: Kludgey processes around retirement account transfers result in people losing track of their funds, giving up important tax advantages, or otherwise disadvantaging themselves and being less prepared for retirement.

The hard math behind America's labor shortage

Data: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Congressional Budget Office; Chart: Axios Visuals

Yes, the pandemic has created unusual temporary labor market dynamics. But in the bigger picture, the 2010s were a golden age for companies seeking cheap labor. The 2020s are not.

The big picture: In the 2010s, the massive millennial generation was entering the workforce, the massive baby bo0m generation was still hard at work, and there was a multi-year hangover from the deep recession caused by the global financial crisis.
