Families are trying to get back on their feet. But Republican governors are knocking them down—taking money out of their pockets while they look for jobs or struggle to find child care so they can get back to work. It’s appalling. cnn.com/2021/06/15/pol…
Giant corporations like Amazon have too much power over the lives of working people. We need big, structural change to level the playing field—like making it easier to join a union and making sure workers’ voices are heard on corporate boards. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
In the 9 years since DACA was created, hundreds of thousands of Dreamers have become an inseparable part of the fabric of our nation. As we celebrate the anniversary of DACA, let’s commit to giving Dreamers the security and peace of mind they’ve been without for 9 years.

Voting is the beating heart of our democracy. Any law that makes it harder for someone with a disability to cast their ballot is an attack on the principle of free and fair elections. nytimes.com/2021/06/14/us/…
Well, we know our job for the next year and a half: We’ve got to make it “highly unlikely” that Mitch McConnell gets to be Majority Leader again. yahoo.com/lifestyle/mitc…
Republican lawmakers are targeting trans kids with hateful new laws. It’s despicable. Here’s how we can draw inspiration from the history of #Pride to fight back:
Roads, bridges, buses, trains, and broadband internet all make it possible for people to go to work and do their jobs. So does child care. We can’t invest in creating jobs without investing in quality, affordable child care.
Here’s why we need to pass the #ForThePeopleAct:
When nurses speak out, I listen—and I fight by their side. spectrumnews1.com/ma/worcester/n…
The rich and powerful have rigged the rules to make themselves richer and more powerful. That leads to the income gap. But income inequality doesn’t hold a candle to wealth inequality. It is long past time for a #WealthTax in America. elizabethwarren.com/covid-wealth-g…
Student loan debt is holding back tens of millions of people across this country who can’t buy homes, buy cars, or start small businesses. President Biden needs to #CancelStudentDebt not only for those people individually but also for our whole economy.
Our tax code is littered with loopholes. They’re so big that Jeff Bezos could drive an Amazon truck or fly a rocket ship through them. Let’s raise opportunity for everyone in America by making billionaires and giant corporations pay their fair share. cnbc.com/2021/06/10/how…
Democrats didn’t ask people to put us in office so we could enshrine a Senate rule that empowers Mitch McConnell. We asked people to vote for us so we could deliver results. Now is the time to deliver on our promises to the American people. #EndTheFilibuster
I’m grateful for @bjoewolf and everybody who’s stayed in this fight to honor the memory of the Pulse victims with action—to ensure full equality, end gun violence, and make sure we don’t forget what happened five years ago. cnn.com/2021/06/10/pol…
If we don’t make the ultra-rich pay their fair share, what are we supposed to say to all the working people who pay their taxes on time, as owed, and pick up the tab for these billionaires? nytimes.com/2021/06/09/us/…
I’m pushing for three changes to our tax laws—a #WealthTax, a Real Corporate Profits Tax, and long-term funding for the IRS to go after wealthy tax cheats—to bring in about $6 trillion. More than enough to pay for the entire Biden-Harris jobs plan, with trillions left over.
When you look at the right numbers, the truth stands out: Canceling $50,000 of student debt would give the most help to people who’ve had the rules rigged against them. #CancelStudentDebt finance.yahoo.com/news/student-l…
Voting is the foundation of our democracy. The filibuster is not.
Republicans across the country are passing law after law after law to make it harder to vote. They’re gearing up to gerrymander as many safe GOP seats as possible. The message is clear: They’re scared to face the will of the people in a free and fair election.
It’s one thing to know in the abstract that the ultra-rich play by a different set of rules. It’s another thing to have the facts shoved in your face. Let’s start to level the playing field here with a #WealthTax. cbsnews.com/news/income-ta…
We must get rid of the filibuster, pass the #ForThePeople Act, and stop this assault on our democracy.
We cannot throw our democracy off a cliff in order to preserve a Senate rule that isn't even a part of the Constitution.
According to this report, Elon Musk didn’t pay any federal income taxes in 2018. Neither did Jeff Bezos in 2007. From 2014 to ‘18, the 25 richest Americans got $401 billion richer—but only paid 3.4% of that in federal income taxes. We need a #WealthTax. propublica.org/article/the-se…
We need a fighter, a progressive changemaker, and a woman with plans to lead New York City—that’s why I am proud to endorse @mayawiley. Help support Maya’s historic campaign for New York City mayor: secure.actblue.com/donate/maya-ew… twitter.com/mayawiley/stat…
Early educators will keep leaving the profession unless we start paying them like the professionals that they are. My plan for universal child care includes a raise for every child care worker and preschool teacher in America. thehill.com/opinion/financ…
We’ve got to root corruption out of Washington so our government works for everyone—not just billionaires and giant corporations who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers.
Republicans have decided that the only way they can win is by preventing American citizens from voting. That should shock every American. But we can’t just sit back and watch their power grab. We have to fight back for our democracy by passing the #ForThePeopleAct.
Growing up in Oklahoma, my schools never taught me about the Tulsa Race Massacre or Black Wall Street. We can’t hide our past. We have to learn from our history to prevent racist violence and systemic discrimination in the future. oklahoman.com/story/news/edu…
The Biden administration is running out of time to #CancelStudentDebt. twitter.com/i/events/14004…
Student debt is locking millions of young people out of the housing market. They can’t come up with a down payment. They can’t qualify for a mortgage. All because they did exactly what everyone told them to do—get an education—and got stuck in a rigged system. #CancelStudentDebt
On average, our country faces 100 gun deaths a day. The American people are demanding action. The Senate must pass commonsense gun reform so we can have a government that keeps communities safe, not one that bows to the NRA. wearorange.org #WearOrange
A six-week abortion ban barely leaves time for someone to realize they’re pregnant & make an appointment—especially if they need to travel because ideologues have shut down all the nearby clinics. Congress must enshrine Roe’s protections into federal law. 19thnews.org/2021/05/what-s…
The Founders considered requiring House or Senate supermajorities to pass bills. But they said no—a simple majority in the House, a simple majority in the Senate, & a presidential sign-off should be enough. It was good enough for them. It's good enough for me. #EndTheFilibuster
Yesterday, at a vaccination clinic in Brockton, I spoke with a young woman who said she was there because she has a 1-year-old baby, and she knew that the best way to keep her baby safe was to get vaccinated. If you haven’t yet, make your appointment: vaccines.gov
No surprise: Creating jobs for working parents—especially working mothers—isn’t really possible unless we also ensure quality, affordable child care. texastribune.org/2021/05/29/tex…
A lot of young people would open up new small businesses in empty storefronts if they weren’t weighed down by tens of thousands of dollars in student debt. We need President Biden to #CancelStudentDebt to release more entrepreneurship and boost our whole economy.
In the past decade, audit rates for multimillionaires have dropped by 80%. We need to give the IRS the resources they need to ramp up enforcement—not targeting low- or middle-income families, but targeting wealthy tax cheats. Because that’s where the money is.
These community college students are working hard to get an education and build a future. I’m pushing for the federal government to work hard by their side and make it easier to make ends meet and put food on the table. eagletribune.com/news/merrimack…
President Biden has the authority to #CancelStudentDebt all on his own. With one stroke of the pen. And by canceling $50,000 of debt for tens of millions, he’d close the Black-white wealth gap for student loan borrowers by nearly 25 percentage points. theguardian.com/money/2021/may…
Republicans have decided that voter suppression is their path to victory. I’m very glad to see Texas Democrats fighting back and defending the right to vote. It’s time for us to show the same backbone in Washington by passing the #ForThePeople Act. apnews.com/article/tx-sta…
Woo-hoo @MelanieforNM! The people of #NM01 have now elected another great Democrat to this seat now that @DebHaalandNM is making us proud in the Cabinet. Melanie’s going to be a great fighter in Congress to create good jobs and protect our planet.
The best way to celebrate #PrideMonth is by continuing to fight for full equality. Every member of the LGBTQ+ community must be free to live and thrive without fear of discrimination or violence.
Right now, our tax code says, “If you're rich, we're going to help you get richer. But if you're a working person, we’re going to make it harder on you.” Congress has a window to un-tilt the system so it isn’t rigged to benefit the rich and powerful. And we must act.
The decisions we make in the next few months—on infrastructure, on taxes, on voting rights, on climate, and more—will set the course of our country for decades to come. Now is the time to raise your voice. Now is the time to stay in the fight.
100 years ago today, mobs of white residents descended on Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I visited the site of the Tulsa Race Massacre in 2019, and I’m fighting to make sure we confront this history of racist violence head on.
All three of my big brothers served in the military. I remember waiting by the mailbox with my mother for news. Days with a letter were extra sunny. My brothers made it home safely, but many service members did not. We honor their sacrifice on #MemorialDay and every day.
The way I see it, you can be an umpire or you can play the game—but you can’t do both at the same time. Amazon “competes” on a platform it controls and uses its power to bleed small businesses dry. D.C. is right to call it out and fight back. reuters.com/technology/was…
When predatory lenders lay traps that working families fall into, those financial institutions want everyone to think that those families were just irresponsible. That they brought it on themselves. But we see through the spin—and we fight for an economy that works for everyone.
We cannot let the infrastructure train leave the station without a big investment in child care.
