When she’s not pushing the Big Lie, or promoting a racist doctrine that inspired the Buffalo shooter, @RepStefanik is appealing to her QAnon base. From moderate to the craven right-wing, her story is the story of the modern GOP. Less party than anti-truth cult of personality.
It’s horrifying to be in this position again: grieving another mass shooting just hours after the attack in Buffalo. My heart breaks for the Laguna Woods community, and for every community marred by gun violence. I will never accept this bloodshed as normal. We. Must. Act.
Tucker Carlson is many things — but he’s not stupid. When he pushes racist conspiracies like “the great replacement,” he knows the risks. He knows some view his vile hate as a call to arms. The problem is Tucker just doesn’t give a damn about anyone but himself.
Closely monitoring reports of a shooting at Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles. This is a developing situation. But as we wait for more details to come in, one thing is clear: We need gun safety measures. And we need them now.
Two mass shootings in 24 hours, in Milwaukee and Buffalo — the latter killing ten people. I’m heartbroken. And I’m angry. Angry that the GOP continues to block even the most basic gun safety measures. We can stop this. We can save lives. Republicans just refuse to. Cowards.
Republicans want to overturn Roe. They want to criminalize women’s health care decisions. And let politicians decide what they must do with an expected pregnancy. Putting women’s lives, health, and freedom at risk. We must fight back to protect the right to privacy. We will.
The fact that Kevin McCarthy lied about wanting Trump to resign after Jan 6 isn’t a scandal. Or even a surprise. The scandal is that lying is the only way he can keep his leadership post. In Trump and McCarthy’s GOP, truth is disqualifying. And the bigger the lie, the better.
If Finland and Sweden want to join NATO, we should emphatically support their inclusion. They will contribute immensely to our collective defense. And their admission will also make Russia’s war on Ukraine an unmitigated strategic failure.
It’s really simple: The Capitol was attacked. And Republican members have information relevant to our investigation. We requested their cooperation. They refused. Leaving us no choice but to subpoena them. If their oath of office means anything, they have a duty to comply.
First, this is unconstitutional. But you know that. Second, this is just a cheap political shot. You know that, too. So as the member who represents Disney Studios, allow me to say: @HawleyMO, California doesn’t support your “Don’t Say Gay, Do Say Pandering” policy.…
Deeply saddened to learn Shireen Abu Akleh - a Palestinian-American reporter - was killed. I'm praying for her family, her colleague, Ali Al-Samudi, and all members of the press who risk their lives doing their jobs. A thorough investigation is needed to ensure accountability.
I'm appalled by Senate GOP's vote to block the Women's Health Protection Act. They are putting millions of women at risk. And their failure to act makes it easier for a partisan court to turn back the clock on reproductive rights. We won't give up the fight for choice. Ever.
Since the weekend, oil prices have fallen by about 10 percent. Yet gas prices just hit a new high. This is exploitation by oil and gas companies – plain and simple. It needs to end. And Big Oil needs to be held accountable.
I’m glad Democrats and Republicans united behind additional aid for Ukraine. During our meeting, @ZelenskyyUa stressed the urgency of further humanitarian, economic, and military assistance from the U.S. We promised to deliver. And we are making good on that promise.
Every worker deserves the chance to unionize – and staffers who work tirelessly to serve Congress and the public are no exception. Proud to vote tonight to recognize their right to organize in the House. The movement for labor justice belongs in the halls of Congress.
There's much to learn about unidentified aerial phenomena. But one thing is sure – the American people deserve full transparency. Next week, @HouseIntel will give the public a chance to hear from experts on one of the greatest mysteries of our time.
CONSERVATIVE (adjective) con·ser·va·tive | \ kən-ˈsər-və-tiv \ a. Tending or disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions. Example // "A conservative court would uphold settled precedent like Roe v. Wade. A partisan court would not."
On this day in 1945, the Nazis surrendered. And now, 77 years later, another dictator is trying to subjugate the people of a neighboring country. But there will be no victory for Russia. Ukraine, and peace, will prevail. And democracy will again triumph over dictatorship.
Great question, @SenBooker. To ensure every student gets a high-quality education, we ought to invest in the folks providing that education: Teachers. That's why I'm proud to co-lead the RAISE Act with you – a bill to deliver long-overdue salary increases to public educators.…
I don’t care how the draft leaked. That’s a sideshow. What I care about is that a small number of conservative justices, who lied about their plans to the Senate, intend to deprive millions of women of reproductive care. Codifying Roe isn't enough. We must expand the court.
I understand the impulse for despair. But it’s not too late to protect the right to choose. Congress must codify protections for abortion rights. We must abolish the filibuster to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act. Now. People elected us to lead, not lament. Let’s do it.
A free press is the bedrock of democracy, and we are indebted to the journalists who risk it all to speak truth and hold power to account. Today and every day, we stand with the free press. We honor their contributions and sacrifices. And we pledge to defend their rights.
There are no words. To adequately describe a draft SCOTUS opinion outlawing the right to choose. It’s devastating for the millions of women who will lose the right to make their health care decisions, thanks to a partisan court. Congress must pass abortion protections. Now.
On Eid al-Fitr, Muslims across America and around the globe gather to rejoice and give thanks as Ramadan comes to an end. I want to extend my best wishes to our Muslim friends and neighbors on this special occasion. May your festivities be joyous. Eid Mubarak.
Yet despite the horror of this senseless bloodshed, the Ukrainian people, under the leadership of President Zelenskyy, have been incredibly resilient. Ukraine is on the frontlines of a struggle between freedom and tyranny – and freedom must prevail.
Because tragically, even after two months of war, the toll of Vladimir Putin’s aggression only grows. Missile strikes continue as refugees flee for their lives. Bodies of innocents are piled in mass graves. People are going hungry and unsheltered. The stakes couldn't be higher.
As chair of @HouseIntel, I was particularly interested in ensuring Ukraine is getting the intel they need from our agencies. U.S. intelligence helped expose Putin's plans to the world. That helped unite our allies around sanctions. We must do even more.…
We're headed back to the U.S. after meeting with @ZelenskyyUa in Kyiv and President @AndrzejDuda in Warsaw. One thing is clear: We must continue to give military aid to Ukraine, and humanitarian assistance to those seeking refuge at home and in neighboring countries like Poland.
I am in awe of the courage of President Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people. In the face of extreme Russian brutality, Zelenskyy has inspired his people, and freedom-loving individuals across the world. We are with @ZelenskyyUa and the Ukrainian people.
The war in Ukraine is a struggle of freedom against tyranny. And we must do our part to ensure Ukraine is victorious. That means providing the humanitarian, economic, and military aid they need to prevail. We are proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainian people.
If billionaires can afford to go to space, they can afford dignity in the workplace. If corporations can afford millions in bonuses, they can afford a living wage for workers.   It’s just that simple.   Today, and every day, we stand with workers. And those trying to unionize.
During our meeting with @ZelenskyyUa, we discussed how the U.S. can continue to support Ukraine as it enters a new phase of the war, and how to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis. And we quickly relayed that critical information to @POTUS. We stand ready to deliver.
With @SpeakerPelosi, I met with @ZelenskyyUa and those on the frontlines of the war in Ukraine. We had one purpose: to reinforce our commitment to our allies. When we return, Congress must take up @POTUS's request for humanitarian and military aid. There's no time to waste.
Our Congressional Delegation was honored to meet with @ZelenskyyUa in Kyiv to salute his leadership and courage, to commend the Ukrainian people for their outstanding defense of Democracy and to say that we are with you until victory is won.

It's no secret America has a gun problem – turn on the TV or open a newspaper for proof of that. But there's more to learn about where the guns come from. I'm working on a bill to require an annual report on gun trafficking. Attacking trafficking is another way to save lives.
On Yom HaShoah, we remember the horrors of the Holocaust. We pray for the six million Jews and millions of others murdered by the Nazis and for the families devastated by one of history's greatest atrocities. And we rededicate ourselves to a simple, sacred promise: Never again.
Here's my take on the world’s richest man buying Twitter: He makes a great car and rocket. But I’m concerned his personal views will stop the fight against disinformation on social media. The problem on Twitter hasn't been too much content moderation – it's too much hate.
Everyone deserves quality health care. That's why I'm an original cosponsor of the Health Equity and Accountability Act, which includes large parts of my bills to root out biases and expand access to lifesaving care. Let's make our health care system work for everyone.
There aren’t any rules in Donald Trump's GOP. Caught in a lie? That's fine. Advocating for a coup? Also fine. Violating your oath of office? Commonplace. Telling the truth, on the other hand - that’s a disqualifying offense.
I'm glad @POTUS delivered an additional $800 million in aid to support Ukraine. With each passing day, Putin escalates the cruelty of his assault. So we must ensure our support for the Ukrainian people remains ironclad and ongoing. We will not waver.
One hundred and seven years ago, the Ottoman Empire began a systematic effort to destroy the Armenian people. Yet, through every horror, the Armenian people persevered. So today on this solemn anniversary we speak with one voice: We will not forget. We will never forget.
As the celebration of Passover comes to an end, I want to extend my best wishes to the Jewish community. I hope you ate plenty of matzo balls and matzo brei – and that you and your loved ones enjoyed a meaningful holiday (and now your return to leavened bread). Chag Sameach!
There's no sugar-coating it: The climate crisis is here – and our planet is in trouble. But it's not too late to act. This Earth Day, let's recommit to pulling out all the stops to protect our planet from this existential threat. Nothing short of a policy revolution will do.
Authoritarians don’t come to power alone. They come to power on the backs of men like Kevin McCarthy. Men too weak to adhere to any principle. Too hungry for power to say or do what’s right. And too cowardly to tell the truth. We deserve better.
What does the @GOPLeader call the time when the president of the United States was siding with Putin over his own intel agencies? When he was withholding military aid from Ukraine to extort political favors? When he was inciting a mob to attack the Capitol? The good ol’ days.
I want to wish all those who celebrate a very Happy Easter! As we begin our long-awaited return to family gatherings, I hope you and your loved ones enjoy a day of festivity and meaningful reflection together. Have a wonderful day!
Tonight, Jews across the country and around the world will gather at the Seder table to begin Passover. On this holiday, we reflect on the incredible resilience of the Jewish people – and pledge to fight the rising tide of antisemitism Jews face today. Chag Pesach Sameach!
Alabama passed a bill criminalizing doctors who treat trans kids. And this legislation – targeting vulnerable children – isn’t unique. Right now, 300 anti-LGBTQ+ bills are pending in state legislatures. The GOP is endangering these kids for political gain. They have no shame.
Ghost guns allow dangerous people to buy deadly weapons with no safeguards. I’m glad @POTUS is issuing new protections to keep us safe and taking action to end gun violence. Next: Let’s repeal the loophole allowing gun makers and dealers to escape justice and accountability.
Anti-vaxxers are using breakthrough cases like mine to push dangerous, unscientific lies. So let me be clear: I feel fine. I don't need a ventilator. My family isn't worried about whether I'll make it. Because I’m vaccinated. Vaccines save lives. Please get yours today.
