I am thinking of everyone in the path of Hurricane Ida—please be as safe as possible and follow recommendations from local officials. twitter.com/fema/status/14…
I keep returning to the heroism of the servicemembers who lost their lives yesterday and the heartbreak their families are enduring. I can scarcely begin to imagine the grief. My heart is with them, and my deep gratitude is with all who serve.
Closely monitoring the horrific attack at the Kabul airport—my prayers are with the victims and their loved ones. It’s critical that we work to secure the area and prioritize evacuation of US citizens and Afghan allies. I thank our servicemembers on the ground for their bravery.
I’m glad to see Virginia mobilizing to provide much-needed support for our Afghan allies as they are welcomed to the US. We must continue to do all we can in the Commonwealth and around the country to offer help to those at risk. twitter.com/sarah_rankin/s…
Great news and a big step forward in our fight against this pandemic. I urge everyone who hasn’t already been vaccinated to schedule your first dose right away—vaccines save lives. Visit vaccines.gov to get started. twitter.com/kaitlancollins…
I joined 50+ colleagues in signing a bipartisan letter to the Administration today, urging swift action for the urgent evacuation of Afghan Special Immigrant Visa applicants and their families. We must do everything possible to ensure the safety of US citizens and Afghan allies.
While I believe it is now time to bring our troops home, we also must continue working to maintain humanitarian and diplomatic support for Afghanistan to ensure the country does not again become a safe haven for al-Qaeda.
The U.S. went into Afghanistan in 2001 to defeat those who attacked the U.S. on 9/11, and 10 years later, we found and killed Osama bin Laden. We stayed an additional decade to help train Afghan security forces and create conditions for a more stable future in that country.
What we are seeing unfold in Afghanistan is devastating. At this time, we must do everything we can to prioritize the evacuation of U.S. personnel, Afghan partners, journalists, women leaders, activists, human rights defenders, and others.
Too many educators must take on a mountain of student debt to pursue a profession that benefits all of us. Read why Senator @timkaine and President @BeckyPringle are calling for a fix to the broken Public Service Loan Forgiveness program: bit.ly/3yK1Fif

This is great news—the provisions in the American Rescue Plan to help kids and families are WORKING! twitter.com/politico/statu…
Four years ago, white supremacists descended on Charlottesville to spread bigotry. Today, we remember Heather Heyer and Virginia state troopers Jay Cullen and Berke Bates, whose lives were cruelly cut short that day—and we stand against the hate that led to their deaths.
This Build Back Better Budget is transformative for American families and I’m so proud to celebrate its passage today. From universal pre-K and workforce development to millions of jobs, action on climate, and tax cuts for middle class families—this is a historic investment. twitter.com/nbcnews/status…
Thrilled the Senate has passed this historic investment in America’s recovery and economy. This bipartisan legislation will put Americans back to work in good-paying jobs, begin to fix our crumbling infrastructure, and build our country back better. twitter.com/frankthorp/sta…
On the 56th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act being signed into law—and over 8 years since SCOTUS first gutted it—I am more committed than ever to doing everything in my power to protect Americans' right to vote. This is the central cornerstone of our nation—we can't give up.
I was so proud to see my bipartisan Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act—legislation to equip our medical professionals with resources to cope with the trauma and challenges they face—pass the Senate last night and get one step closer to becoming law.
Rich Trumka was a friend, mineworker, labor leader—a tough guy with a huge heart and an amazing legacy. He never forgot where he came from or who he came from. I met him long ago in Southwest Virginia and will miss him very much.
Happy 60th to this guy! @BarackObama, we sure are glad you were born.
Pleased my bipartisan bill to repeal the 1991 and 2002 AUMFs has been passed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. This legislation reasserts Congress’s vital role in both declaring and ending wars—and reflects our strong partnership with a sovereign, democratic Iraq.
The tragic death of the Pentagon police officer yesterday reminds us how much we owe to law enforcement who keep us safe. We need police reform—just like we need Congressional reform—but we should always honor the service of those who put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe.
Incredibly sad news. My heart is with Officer DeFreytag’s loved ones. We must support our public service heroes who endure so much to protect our communities. These losses are gut wrenching. twitter.com/mikevwusa/stat…
It’s heartbreaking to hear about Officer Hashida’s death—my thoughts are with his family, loved ones, and fellow DC police officers.  If you or anyone you love is hurting, please know that there is support available. Call 1-800-273-8255 any hour of the day. twitter.com/CNN/status/142…
A truly excellent person to support this important work. Congratulations to my friend Mr. Khan—Virginia is proud that you call our Commonwealth home. twitter.com/samstein/statu…
On this day in 1965, LBJ signed Medicare and Medicaid into law, transforming access to health care for so many Americans. Today, we celebrate that groundbreaking legislation and commit to expanding affordable health care to ALL Americans—because health care is a human right.
This morning, a group of 250 Afghan interpreters and their families landed at Dulles and headed to Fort Lee to begin their transition to life in the US after aiding our military efforts. Glad to be with @votevets marking this important step.
So sad to hear the news about Carl Levin passing away. A wonderful Senator, Armed Services Chair, and friend.
For the past four years, every week was "infrastructure week" in the Trump Administration, and yet every week was the same—we'd get no deal. Six months into the Biden-Harris Administration, we've got a deal. This is what competent leadership looks like!
The American Rescue Plan we passed was one of the boldest pieces of legislation in American history, and families are seeing that investment pay off with a strong economy and money in their pockets. Remember: Passed by one vote with only Democrats supporting it. Elections matter! twitter.com/secyellen/stat…
This is frankly ridiculous. Trashing a government institution that’s announcing recommendations (not mandates) to keep people safe will only weaken people's trust, at a time when we desperately need to do the opposite. twitter.com/schwartzchron/…
The CDC’s COVID data tracker is updated every morning—check it out below. If you live or work in an area of substantial or high transmission, be sure to follow the latest guidance and #MaskUp in public indoor spaces to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. twitter.com/CDCgov/status/…
So sorry to hear about the death of Mike Enzi. His low key kindness made him distinct among Senate personalities.
This young guy definitely would have gotten vaccinated, because #VaccinesWork! Join him and get vaccinated today—it’s safe, easy, and free. Vaccines.gov has everything you need to know.
Always grateful for those who risk their lives to keep our communities safe. We’ve got to honor them by doing more in Congress to prevent gun violence tragedies. twitter.com/wtkr3/status/1…
So much of this is preventable. If your friends or loved ones aren’t yet vaccinated, please take the time to talk to them about how important it is—one conversation could have the power to save many lives. Visit vaccines.gov for answers to many common questions. twitter.com/ryanstruyk/sta…
To all of @TeamUSA, including the many Virginia athletes representing us in the Tokyo Games, I'm wishing you the best of luck as #Olympics2021 kicks off! Stay safe, and know that we're all cheering you on back home.
The Senate Armed Services Committee has passed our annual defense bill—and in addition to delivering much-needed support to Virginia’s defense community, I'm so glad that this year’s NDAA includes landmark reforms to address the scourge of sexual assault in our military ranks.
Thanks to coordinated efforts from Congress, @POTUS, @StateDept, and @DeptofDefense, Afghans who risked their lives to support our military and foreign policy objectives can escape the dangers they face due to their service. I applaud this step to protect our Afghan allies. twitter.com/NBCNews/status…
Baseball games, movie theaters, schools, churches. This is normal in America—but it doesn’t have to be. We can and must do more to keep our communities safe. That starts with passing federal legislation to reduce gun violence. twitter.com/Acosta/status/…
We have got to secure a path to citizenship for Dreamers—period. These young people deserve to live out of the shadows in the country they have called home since childhood. twitter.com/camiloreports/…
Today, millions of American families will see more money directly in their bank accounts—thanks to the expanded Child Tax Credit. 1.6M kids in VA will benefit. 85K Virginian kids will be lifted out of poverty. Grateful Dems in Congress and @POTUS were able to make this happen.
The budget agreement we have announced is a historic investment in America's economy and families. From bringing down the cost of childcare and health care to expanding early childhood education to fighting climate change, this is transformative. twitter.com/SenSchumer/sta…
A superb pick by President Biden. Jeff Flake is a principled public servant who has deep respect for the intergral role of the Senate in matters of war, peace, and diplomacy. politico.com/news/2021/07/1…
I commend these lawmakers for taking a bold stand for voting rights, which are at the heart of our democracy. I'm with them in this fight, and will continue to work toward a solution to protect the right to vote at the federal level. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
I'm alarmed by Cuban President Diaz-Canel’s call for confrontation against peaceful protesters. I stand with the Cuban people exercising their right to demand freedom and reform and speaking out against decades of oppression. All should be able to voice their opinions peacefully. twitter.com/EarlyStart/sta…
Just wrapped a bipartisan Congressional delegation to Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia, and Guatemala. We met with government, civil society, and business leaders to discuss fighting COVID, promoting trade, and addressing the drivers of migration. Grateful for these strong partnerships.
Glad to see the Biden-Harris Administration and our Democratic Party pushing to protect voting rights. I am committed to doing everything in my power to support the right to vote and pass comprehensive voting rights legislation. This couldn't be any more important. twitter.com/ABC/status/141…
Virginians should prepare for possible power outages and flash flooding as Tropical Storm Elsa moves across parts of our Commonwealth later this afternoon into tonight. Please pay attention to local media and weather forecasts for the latest updates.

While #Elsa may not significantly impact the commonwealth, you should still prepare for remnants it could bring, especially to southeast #Virginia. 💻 Have multiple ways to receive alerts & warnings. 🔴🟠🟡🔵 Review your emergency plan & know your evacuation zone & ro6M40T

We’ve got to expand student debt relief. I was glad to join @PattyMurray and more than 20 other Senate colleagues in signing a letter to @SecCardona pushing to expand and improve relief for federal student loan borrowers. Hopeful the @usedgov will consider our recommendations.
