This act of domestic terrorism by a racist, anti-Semitic white supremacist using an AR-15 should be a call to action. Let us finally pass common sense gun safety reforms. We cannot grow numb to this violence, and we must show our nation can come together to address this hatred.…
No, Mr. Bezos. Disinformation is Amazon spreading anti-union propaganda & forcing workers to attend illegal captive audience meetings. Disinformation is Amazon blaming a 17% price increase on "inflation" while making a record $35 billion in profits & avoiding $5 billion in taxes.…
The attack by Israeli forces against mourners at the funeral of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is an outrage. The United States must condemn this, and demand an independent investigation into her killing.
Greed. Greed. Greed. While Americans are struggling at the pump, in the first three months of this year, 21 oil and gas companies made over $41 billion in profits, more than double their profits from last year. The problem is not inflation. The problem is corporate greed.
The United States has the most dysfunctional, inefficient, bureaucratic and expensive health care system in the world. It’s time for Medicare for All.…
It is not acceptable that 68,000 Americans die each year because they cannot afford the health care they desperately need. It’s time to end this international embarrassment. It’s time to guarantee health care in the United States to all. It’s time for Medicare for All.
LIVE: No more insurance premiums. No more deductibles. No more co-payments. Health care is right, not a privilege. It’s time for Medicare for All.…
Today at 11am ET, we will hold the first ever hearing in a full committee of the U.S. Senate on Medicare for All. Health care is a right, not a privilege.
If you can’t stand up for a woman’s right to choose, for voting rights, for an economy that works for all, why are you caucusing with the Senate Democrats? We need a Democratic Majority where all members believe in economic, racial, social and environmental justice.
It is no great secret that women throughout the history of our country have had to fight for their basic human rights against all forms of patriarchy, so today let us be absolutely clear: When it comes to women’s rights, we cannot go backwards. We must go forward.
I'm LIVE on the floor of the U.S. Senate to demand we end the filibuster and protect the constitutional right to have an abortion.…
I'll be on the floor of U.S. Senate TONIGHT at 8pm ET to talk about why we must end the filibuster and protect the constitutional right to have an abortion.
Grateful to @SenSanders for calling a hearing of the Senate Budget Committee on Medicare for All & for the invitation to participate as a witness to share insights about how M4A would protect health, save lives, & save money. [email protected] to tune in:…

This Thursday, @SenSanders is holding a hearing on Medicare for All in the Budget Committee. I’m excited to testify alongside @AbdulElSayed & @NNUBonnie. The need for fundamental healthcare reform has never been so urgent.…

Estimates show that nearly 27 million Americans and their families lost their health care coverage when they lost their jobs due to COVID-19. Let me be clear: health care is a human right, not a job benefit. Yes. It’s time for Medicare for All.
We spend twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation but with worse health outcomes for our people. Does that make sense to anyone? It’s time for Medicare for All.
If Republicans can end the filibuster to install right wing judges nominated by presidents who lost the popular vote in order to overturn Roe v. Wade, Democrats can and must end the filibuster to keep abortion legal and safe.
This is what Oligarchy and corporate greed are all about. Two large and profitable corporations, owned by billionaires, spend millions to illegally deny their workers the right to organize. No corporation that breaks the law should get a federal contract.…
Congratulations to the resident doctors at UVM, UMass and Stanford who have voted, overwhelmingly, to unionize. These doctors believe its unfair to their patients and themselves when they are forced to work up to 80 hours a week at very inadequate pay. They're right.
Taxpayer dollars should not go to multibillion dollar companies that violate labor laws. Period.
It may be news to @LindseyGrahamSC, but Amazon has a 150% percent turnover rate. Workers come into the warehouses, they are worked as hard as humanly possible, and they leave, often crushed. Is this really a business model that should be rewarded with federal contracts?
Congratulations to President Biden for having the courage to do what no president in modern history has done. He is standing with union organizers who are helping to grow the trade union movement. This is an important step forward for working families. Let's go forward together.…
No government – not the federal government, not the state government and not the city government - should be handing out corporate welfare to union busters and labor law violators.…
Amazon has a 150% percent turnover rate. Workers come into the warehouses, they are worked as hard as humanly possible, and they leave. And a whole set of new workers come in to replace them. Is this really a business model that should be rewarded with federal contracts?
LIVE: Taxpayer dollars should not go to companies like Amazon and multi-billionaires like Jeff Bezos who repeatedly break the law.…
Teamsters General President Sean M. O'Brien is looking forward to this important hearing with @SenSanders & @Shut_downAmazon set to begin at 11am this morning. Watch live:… #1u #Amazon…

The Senate Budget Committee will be joined TODAY by @Teamsters President Sean O'Brien, @Shut_downAmazon and others for a hearing on why taxpayer dollars should not go to companies like Amazon and billionaires like Jeff Bezos who repeatedly break the law. Join us LIVE at 11am ET.
Clearly, Jeff Bezos, the second wealthiest person on the planet, desperately needs $10 billion from the American taxpayer to go to the moon. After all, he is only worth $150 billion.
We have strange priorities in the Senate. We can’t extend the child tax credit. We can’t deal with the crisis in child care. We can’t take on climate change. But somehow we can provide a massive amount of corporate welfare to a handful of corporations. Totally absurd.
If Mr. Bezos wants to go to the moon, wants to go to Mars, wants to go to Saturn, that’s his right. But he does not have the right to ask the taxpayers of this country for $10 billion to help him make his trip to outer space.
In my view, it makes zero sense for Congress to hand a $52 billion check to the microchip industry, no strings attached. This is an industry that said ‘Hey, let’s throw hundreds of thousands of American workers out on the street to make more money in low-wage countries.’ Absurd.
#Teamsters agree 💯 Don't miss this must-watch @SenateBudgett Committee hearing tomorrow w/#Teamsterss General Pres. Sean M. O'Brien@SenSanderss@GoodJobsFirstt &@amazonlaborr on ending Fed. contracts to companies engaged in illegal anti-union……C

Congress must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade as the law of the land in this country NOW. And if there aren’t 60 votes in the Senate to do it, and there are not, we must end the filibuster to pass it with 50 votes.
Eid Mubarak to all of our Muslim friends around the world.
At a time when over half of the people in this country live paycheck to paycheck, should we really be providing a multibillion-dollar taxpayer bailout for Bezos to fuel his space hobby? I don’t think so. The Senate will hold a vote this week to stop it.…
In Denmark, as a result of strong unions, McDonald's workers make $22 an hour, get 6 weeks paid vacation & 1 year of paid leave. In the US, 58% of McDonald's workers make less than $12 an hour & no benefits while its CEO makes $20 million. Every worker needs a union. #MayDay2022
While Vermont continues to lead the nation in syrup production, many studies are telling us that the climate crisis is threatening the industry. Now, more than ever, it’s important that we protect not only our planet, but also long-held and beloved practices, like sugaring.
I want wish each and every one of you a very happy May Day. When working people in our country and around the world come together, there is nothing that can stop us in the struggle for justice.
In the last 3 months, as gas prices soared, Exxon Mobil doubled its profit to $5.5 billion. Instead of increasing supply or expanding production, what did Exxon do? Triple its stock buyback program to $30 billion to enrich its wealthy shareholders. We need a windfall profits tax.
On this Yom HaShoah, we remember the 6 million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust. At a time of rising antisemitism, racism, and xenophobia, we must honor them today and every day by standing together against all forms of hate, bigotry, and intolerance.
Mr. Romney supports "bribes" in the form of tax cuts for the wealthy and billions in welfare for corporations, but is shocked by the idea that working Americans might get help paying off student debt. I know he thinks corporations are people, but does he know people are people?…
The time for talk is over. The time for action is now. Taxpayer dollars should not go to companies like Amazon and multi-billionaires like Jeff Bezos, who repeatedly break the law.
The U.S. Department of Labor has the authority to prevent companies like Amazon that have violated labor laws from receiving federal contracts. Taxpayer dollars should not go to companies and multi-billionaires like Jeff Bezos who repeatedly break the law. Let's get this done.
Federal Income Taxes Paid in 2021: $0: AT&T $0: AIG $0: Dow $0: Charter Communications $0: Salesforce $0: Duke Energy $0: Kinder Morgan Combined profits: $55.6 billion But we're told inflation is rising because a worker got a 50 cent raise & a $1,400 check. #TaxTheRich
The federal government bailed out the banks. Trump and the Republicans gave huge tax cuts to the wealthy. Congress is about to hand $10 billion to Jeff Bezos to go the moon. Yes, we can afford to cancel all student debt.
Since March of 2020 Mr. Bezos became $65 billion richer. He has enough money to own a $500 million, 417-foot mega-yacht. He has enough money to buy a rocket ship to blast William Shatner to outer space. Yes, he can provide decent working conditions.…
Taxpayer dollars should not go to companies like Amazon and multi-billionaires like Jeff Bezos who repeatedly break the law to defeat union organizing efforts. I'm LIVE on the floor of the Senate to say to President Biden it is time for action.…
At a time when many workers feel like cogs in a machine, Vermonters should be proud that at places like Switchback Brewing Company our state is helping to lead the country toward alternatives to corporate ownership.
On Earth Day, let us recommit to coming together and taking on the existential threat of climate change. We must act now to save the planet.
When we take that next giant leap into space let us do it to benefit all of humanity, not to turn a handful of billionaires into trillionaires.…
