Dems are ready to meet the White House and Republicans halfway. But they aren’t even willing to come to the table and negotiate. They are letting down millions of Americans in the process.

There’s no way around it: President Trump’s country club fix is going to cut unemployment benefits for 30 million Americans. Families across the country need our support right now.

We need a comprehensive plan to combat climate change and protect our planet and our future. As one piece of that strategy, we need to be putting a steadily rising price on carbon emissions.

The economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis can’t be solved with the President signing executive orders from the golf course. It’s past time for Senate Republicans to do their job.

I joined Mothers United for Justice in downtown Chicago to listen to the stories of families who have been impacted by police brutality. We must demand accountability—and justice for all.

President Trump’s executive orders are not the answer. We need real action from Congress. And for that to happen, Mitch McConnell and Republican leaders must come to the table.

We need to address the urgent threat posed by climate change and invest in a clean energy economy. That’s why I am advocating for a Clean Climate Future Fund.

If Congress refuses to fund the U.S. Postal Service and provide the urgent support it needs during this pandemic, we will see devastating impacts on both our economy and our democracy.

Foreign actors are targeting the 2020 election—just like Russia did in 2016. We need to be prepared to fight back and defend our democracy and elections from foreign interference.

The President cannot solve this problem by executive order. Republican leaders in Congress need to come to the negotiating table and get this done.

The Republican leaders in Congress aren’t even in the room during these negotiations. What are they doing that’s more important than supporting unemployed workers during this crisis?

Rep. John Lewis believed that the right to vote was sacred. He risked his life to protect this fundamental right for all of us. Congress must defend voting rights—and our democracy.
