As it turns out, Rep. Barr has the same amount of coal mines in his district as I do in mine! Who says Dems and GOP can’t find things in common? 😉

Buildings account for 70% of carbon emissions in NYC. 70%. Today the city embarked on an ambitious, aggressive plan to change that and create a ton of jobs doing so. This exactly the kind of economic + climate action we need.

Words cannot describe how proud I am of the grassroots organizers & officials (including Queens’ own !) behind this momentous passage by the . (Upgrading our buildings to be cleaner and healthier creates a ton of dignified jobs, too.)

Just a final note: Aside from a handful of lawmakers — , , — very few in Congress are questioning how the US can afford to spend $7.5 trillion on the military at time of already unusually high deficits

The is already changing the country. Here’s what folks didn’t see coming: just by *offering* the resolution to Congress, the ambitious text was made available to organizers+officials across the country. Now, local govs are taking action. First: LA. Today, NYC ⬇️

It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings. We are now requesting Mueller to appear before as soon as possible.

Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment. I didn’t campaign on it, & rarely discuss it unprompted. We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, & a Green New Deal. But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep.

While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction, I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate.

Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. As such, I’ll be signing onto ’s impeachment resolution.

If Congress wants to , we shouldn’t starve it + then sell it off for parts, forcing vets into for-profit emergency rooms + to providers who aren’t used to working w/their unique medical needs. We should fight to fully fund the VA + hire to fill its 49,000 vacancies.

🤣 Surprise! I know more about West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky & Appalachian communities than they think I do, in no small part bc it’s a valued perspective to me & for coalition-building, so I have it *in my staff!* I suspect underestimating women is the GOP’s kryptonite.
