Glad to have @SenSchumer join @SenSanders, @RepBarbaraLee & I to demand a 10% cut from this year's bloated defense budget.

The time is long overdue to reshape our national priorities and put the needs of the American people first.
 
Let me thank @SenSchumer for his support for my amendment to cut the bloated $740 billion Pentagon budget by 10% and invest $74 billion in communities that have been ravaged by extreme poverty and mass incarceration. This amendment will begin to change our national priorities.
Replying to @SenSanders
And let me also thank @SenSchumer for securing a vote on my amendment during the week of July 20th. If there was ever a time to fundamentally change our national priorities, now is that time. Let's cut the Pentagon budget and invest in healthcare and housing here at home.

Proud I fought alongside @SenSanders to ensure we vote in July on his amendment to cut $740B defense budget by 10% and put $$ into priorities like health care, housing, childcare in communities with 25%+ poverty—including many communities of color

I proudly support the amendment
 
Remdesivir costs less than $10 to manufacture. @GileadSciences is charging $3,100 for it.

Taxpayers spent $70 million to develop this drug. Coronavirus has killed 130,000 Americans. It's time to take control of this patent and provide remdesivir to all who need it.
Opinion: U.S. government scientists helped invent remdesivir, and HHS has a legal and moral duty to ensure access to it in the U.S. and around the world. It has the policy tool it needs to do that. buff.ly/2VFDnVd
 
The richest 1% owe 70% of all unpaid taxes. With the money from these tax cheats, we could do all this:

No national testing program. No adequate production of protective gear. No commitment to a free vaccine.

As almost every major country sees the spread of coronavirus decline, America's infections are spiking.

Trump's incompetence is killing people.
 
You don't need a Ph.D in economics to know this, but it can't hurt: We need direct, monthly cash payments for everybody in America until this crisis is over.

Evictions must be banned for the entirety of this crisis. This is a matter of racial and economic justice that Congress cannot ignore.

The cruelty of this White House knows no bounds. Foreign students are being threatened with a choice: risk your life going to class in-person or get deported.

American taxpayers are already funding the development of a coronavirus vaccine. When it is ready, we must put it in the public domain and ensure that it's available to all.

No more privatizing, monopolizing and profiteering by Big Pharma. nytimes.com/2020/07/06/opi…
 
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and millions of others who fought against the Dakota Access Pipeline showed us the power of standing together against injustice.

We can create a future where a clean environment and indigenous rights matter more than Big Oil’s profits.

The Trump administration is focused on making it harder for homeless trans people to get safe shelter during this pandemic. That is outrageous.

As a pandemic rages, public health departments across America are being starved and are on the verge of collapse.

The minimum wage is worth less than it was 50 years ago.

Throughout our history, demagogues have always tried to demonize different people to divide us up.

We will not let Trump succeed. We will break down the irrational hatred he is fomenting. We are going to build a politics of love, compassion, and unity.

This holiday weekend, let us reflect on the disturbing reality behind every plate of food—workers are being exploited and put at risk every day.

They don’t need more lip service, they need justice: Hazard pay, sick leave, $15 an hour and a safe workplace. buzzfeednews.com/article/albert…
 
Jane and I wish you and your loved ones a very happy Independence Day.

Together, we can and will create the kind of nation based on love and justice that we know we can become.
 
I believe that right now, the American people want real transformation.

They want us to invest in health care, jobs and education for all, so that they can live their lives with dignity and security.

They want a government which represents all of us, not the 1%.
 
No, Mr. Trump, coronavirus will not just “disappear.” We need to pass legislation to fight this pandemic and protect the American people. That means:

😷 Masks for all
🧪 Free testing for all
💊 Health care for all
👨‍👩‍👧 Economic security for all

Proud to work with @SenatorDurbin, @SenSanders and others on this bicameral effort to ensure that all countries have the financial support they need to recover from #COVID-19.
 
I am proud to join @SenatorDurbin on this legislation to have the IMF provide financial support to the developing world, at no cost to U.S. taxpayers.

It is the very least we can do to prevent unimaginable increases in poverty, hunger, and disease that threaten the world's poor.
The world has lost more than 500,000 people to #COVID19. The virus has brought global economies to a halt. Today @SenSanders, @SenJackReed, @SenatorCardin, @SenJeffMerkley, & I introduced a bill urging international financial institutions to help.

.@AmericanAir: how many Americans will die bc you fill middle seats, w/ your customers shoulder to shoulder, hour after hour. This is incredibly irresponsible. People eat & drink on planes & must take off masks to do so. No way you aren’t facilitating spread of COVID infections.
 
How on earth can airlines—in the middle of pandemic—fly their planes at full capacity?

I am demanding federal action to require social distancing, mask-wearing, and disinfection in planes and airports.

We must put the safety of passengers and workers ahead of corporate profits.
 
No one is above the law. @SenMarkey, @SenWarren, and I introduced a bill to abolish “qualified immunity" so police officers can be held fully accountable for abuses they commit, just like everybody else.

🚨 14.7 million Americans are still out of work. Coronavirus infections are rising at an unprecedented rate. 🚨

Until this crisis is over, we must:

💵Provide $2,000 a month per person
🏥Ensure medical care without cost
👷‍♀️Guarantee workers' wages
💳Extend unemployment benefits
 
Instead of addressing the surge in hunger due to this economic meltdown, the Senate is rushing to pass a $740 billion military budget.

We need to fundamentally alter our national priorities. It's time to eradicate hunger in America. It's time to increase nutrition support.
 
Today, workers in Washington, DC will get paid at least $15 an hour. This is what happens when workers raise their voices, organize and demand to be heard. It’s time for Congress to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15 an hour for all workers.

One theory is that by spending $740,000,000,000 on the most sophisticated weapons of mass destruction in world history, we'll be safer.

I'm not so sure.

Maybe what makes us safer is breaking down fear and hatred around the world, so that we can recognize our common humanity.
 
Rent is due. But over 40 million Americans lost their jobs because of this horrific pandemic. How are they expected to put together the income to make rent?

It is time to cancel rent and mortgage payments until this crisis is over.
 
Alec Smith died at 26 because he was rationing insulin that was too expensive.

Now Big Pharma is suing to block a law passed in his honor to make insulin more affordable.

Let’s be clear about this: Big Pharma’s greed is literally killing people in this country.
BREAKING: Pharma is suing to block Minnesota's new insulin access law.

The Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act was passed in honor of a 26-year-old who died rationing insulin.

Today, I asked Dr. Fauci whether we need to manufacture and distribute free, high-quality masks and guarantee free vaccines to everyone in America.

The Senate must listen to our public health experts and immediately pass my proposals to do exactly that.

America's coronavirus cases are skyrocketing even as other major countries have controlled its spread.

Congress must step up. We need to act urgently to guarantee robust testing, tracing, masks, and medical treatment for all.
 
Taxpayers provided funding for the development of this drug. Now Gilead is price-gouging off it during a pandemic. Beyond disgusting.
