Nearly 40% of people with student debt never received a degree. They worked hard, did what they were supposed to and tried to advance their education, but life happened and now they're getting crushed by debt. Canceling student debt will help working people.

The poultry industry is dominated by a few giant corporations who are cutting pay for farmers and raising prices for consumers. The Biden admin is right to take concrete action to help Americans get lower prices at the grocery store. twitter.com/nytpolitics/st…

"This is a working people's issue. There is a sort of stereotype that we're talking about ivy leaguers who have racked up all this debt. It's absolutely not true," -@LizShuler, President of @AFLCIO. twitter.com/AFLCIO/status/…

.@amazon claims to be the "safest place on earth to work," but reality doesn't back that up. Workers injuries are alarmingly high & Amazon won't stop putting profits over people. I stand with Daniel Olayiwola & workers fighting for safe workplaces.
Democrats have worked for years to enact meaningful gun safety reforms.   Republicans refuse to even acknowledge that our weak gun laws are a problem—and abuse the filibuster to block legislation that Americans overwhelmingly support. Saving lives should be a bipartisan effort.
Mitch McConnell already said a national abortion ban is possible if #RoeVWade is overturned. Republicans are prepared to force their extreme position on Americans, even in cases of rape & incest. The American people don't support this radical agenda. businessinsider.com/mitch-mcconnel…
.@SenAmyKlobuchar and I have a new bill to provide $20 billion in election funding for states and localities. Voting is the beating heart of our democracy, and this funding is critical for our elections. The Senate should pass this bill.
Let's be clear: Republican Senators are blocking common sense gun safety legislation against the will of the American people. twitter.com/business/statu…
One more time, in plain English, here’s what the experts at the @BostonFed have to say: concentrated corporate power amplifies inflation. That’s why we must enforce our antitrust laws and spur competition to lower costs for Americans.
And here’s what the @BostonFed concluded: “the recent rise in concentration is an amplifying factor for the pass-through of current cost shocks emanating from supply shortages, energy price shocks, and labor market tightness."
Meaning? Concentration results in market power—& corporations use it to jack up prices & profiteer during inflationary times. @BostonFed puts it: “the pass-through of cost shocks into prices..becomes..greater when there's an increase in concentration.”
First, they found clear evidence that the economy has become more concentrated: “Industry concentration has increased significantly in the United States in the past 20 years, and this trend has accelerated since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
There’s been a lot of debate whether corporate monopolies and price gouging are contributing to inflation when it’s plain as day that’s what’s happening. The @BostonFed has weighed in. And here’s what they found. Buckle up. twitter.com/BostonFed/stat…
We're in a national baby formula crisis because a single plant went down in a highly concentrated industry with no excess capacity. You have to drive your head pretty far into the sand not to notice that market concentration is driving up prices & undermining supply chains. twitter.com/StevenTDennis/…
Millions of children, parents, teachers, and Americans are waking up with not only heartbreak for the lives lost, but also fear for their families. We’re sick and tired of gun violence, and we cannot let one political party block any solutions. Our children deserve better.
It's heartbreaking and sickening how routine mass shootings have become in America. Fourteen babies and a teacher. My heart goes out to all the families in Uvalde, Texas, whose lives were shattered. The Senate must pass gun safety legislation and protect our children.
My bill was signed into law last year to rename military assets that celebrate traitors who took up arms against the United States to defend slavery. These recommendations are a significant step to reckon with our past, end decades of injustice, and honor American heroes. twitter.com/AP/status/1529…
If Republicans achieve their goal of overturning #RoeVWade, women across this country will bear the consequences. This is a five-alarm fire, and we need to use every tool possible to protect the right to safe and legal abortions.
Workers at Maximus call centers do critically important work to ensure millions of Americans can access their healthcare. I stand with these workers in their fight for better pay, affordable healthcare, and a union, and I'm in this fight with you all the way. twitter.com/CWAUnion/statu…
Private equity giant @KKR_Co bought up dozens of group homes for people with disabilities — then made big money providing grossly substandard care and risking patient safety. My colleagues and I are calling for answers on these disturbing practices. buzzfeednews.com/article/kendal…
We should cap insulin costs at $35 a month and lower the price of prescription drugs for all Americans. Let’s do this.
Congratulations to @PPFA workers across Massachusetts who will vote to unionize! A union will ensure these workers are empowered to do their critical work of providing safe abortions and other reproductive health care services to women across the Commonwealth. twitter.com/1199mass/statu…
Nearly 9 million federal loan borrowers are 50 years of age and older. With a stroke of his pen, @POTUS can #CancelStudentDebt and bring relief to millions of Americans.
The American people support canceling student debt, even those who don’t have loans. One of the reasons? There's scarcely a working person in America who doesn't have a friend, family member, or coworker weighed down by this burden. @POTUS should #CancelStudentDebt.
Justice Thomas refused to recuse himself from cases involving the 2020 election while his wife was leading efforts to overturn it. I’ve got a plan to root out these corrupt practices by Supreme Court Justices and fix our broken judicial ethics system. washingtonpost.com/investigations…
Over and over, @WellsFargo gets caught cheating. And this time they've been caught giving fake job interviews to candidates to "boost diversity efforts on paper" —even though they had already given the job to someone else. This bank needs to be broken up. nytimes.com/2022/05/19/bus…
We are calling on the Biden Administration to implement broad-based student loan debt cancellation by executive action. Read the full statement below:

Four corporations control 85% of the beef market—they're using their market power to raise prices to pad their bottom line. @SenatorRounds and I have a new resolution to direct the @FTC to investigate antitrust violations in the beef packing industry. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
.@linakhanFTC is right: unchecked market concentration contributes to the baby formula shortage & the high prices Americans are paying for meat. I've got a plan to crack down on monopolies and create competition in our markets to lower costs. marketwatch.com/story/ftc-chie…
Private equity has been buying up everything from homes to hospitals — hurting families and workers, and potentially breaking U.S. laws. @JusticeATR is right to enforce our antitrust laws to promote competitive markets and lower consumer prices. ft.com/content/7f4cc8…
A Trump appointee (whose boss tried to overturn an election) staged her own coup to try and override President Biden’s FDIC majority to protect big banks from oversight. Rs still defend her, like they defend Trump. But it was illegal, and she resigned in disgrace. twitter.com/amacker/status…
If Roe is overturned, the consequences of this decision will fall hardest on low-income women and women of color, but make no mistake—every American will feel the impact. This is a five-alarm fire and Democrats need to use every tool possible to protect the right to choose.
We've seen anti-abortion activists use location data to target women at abortion clinics. In some cases, that data has been used by prosecutors to criminally charge people. That is absolutely unacceptable. I joined @SenWarren to demand data brokers ban these practices. twitter.com/SenWarren/stat…

Big corporations are jacking up prices, lining shareholder pockets, and making inflation worse. But while American families are hurting, CEOs are getting huge raises. wsj.com/articles/ceo-p…
I’ve been fighting to enhance transparency & I’m glad more Pentagon officials understand our moral & strategic imperative to prevent civilian casualties. But we must do more. It's critical that this year's annual defense bill include my bills. thehill.com/policy/defense…
I'll be reviewing the Pentagon’s report carefully. Investigations must be independent and comprehensive, including interviewing witnesses on the ground. I recently reintroduced a bill to prevent future civilian harm & hold leaders accountable when failing to follow laws of war.
The 2019 US airstrike in Syria is among the most devastating instance of civilian harm. We need accountability & transparency—and that's why I called for an investigation into this strike. We can't continue accepting civilian death & harm as a cost of war. nytimes.com/2022/05/17/us/…
The shortage of baby formula today is due in part to a lack of competition. While Abbott raked in massive profits in this highly consolidated industry, their execs ignored safety warnings and gave away billions to investors. @SenBooker & I want answers. huffpost.com/entry/baby-for…
Democrats need to use every tool possible to protect a woman's right to choose. With an extremist Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe, I’m calling out data brokers for their disturbing practice of selling location data of women visiting abortion clinics. nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
The majority of student loans are held by those with no household wealth. That’s not surprising. It’s the reason why they had to borrow money in the first place to try and advance their education. @POTUS should #CancelStudentDebt to help millions of hardworking Americans.
We need to stop the kind of price gouging we’ve seen from Big Oil and other corporate bad actors during this global health crisis, and help Americans afford groceries and transportation. I’m glad to join @SenWarren in offering the Price Gouging Prevention Act of 2022.

Americans overwhelmingly support the right for every woman to control her own future. But Republicans want to overturn #RoeVWade and force their unpopular agenda on the rest of America. We can't go back. Never.
One million Americans have died from COVID-19. We must honor the family & friends we've lost & those who continue to be affected by this pandemic. My resolution would establish a day of remembrance for COVID-19 victims & survivors—Congress should pass it. apnews.com/article/us-cov…
.@JeffBezos is a thin-skinned billionaire lashing out as a distraction from @amazon’s shameful treatment of workers and its massive tax avoidance. @POTUS’ plan will fight inflation by making giant corporations pay their fair share & fund investments like affordable child care.
Trader Joe's is a multi-billion dollar company, but they've been slashing workers’ pay and benefits in recent years & cutting corners on worker safety during a pandemic. I stand with Trader Joe's workers in Massachusetts organizing for better pay, benefits, and work conditions. twitter.com/moreperfectus/…
I stand in solidarity with @BeuBrookline fighting for better pay and working conditions that reflect the important work they do every day for our kids. They’re pushing for policies to recruit and retain educators of color, and I’m with them all the way. wbur.org/news/2022/05/1…
Black women shoulder a disproportionate amount of the student debt crisis, holding 47% more debt than white men and 27% more than white women. .@POTUS should #CancelStudentDebt to help close the racial wealth gap among borrowers. nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/bl…
Underinvestment, restrictive zoning and Wall Street exploitation have jacked up housing costs for American families. I've been calling for policies to expand housing supply and loosen big investors' hold on the market. @POTUS’ housing plan is a strong move to lower costs. twitter.com/thehill/status…
