I’m headed to the Senate floor right now to request my colleagues unanimously pass my anti-lynching bill. It’s absurd that Congress has tried and failed to do this dozens of times for the better part of a century. Let’s get it done.

“That $500 a year is less than $50 a month and you all are just doing this in an election year. You all are not serious about increasing pay raises for teachers. If so, you would do a whole lot better.” -

$500 for our hardworking dedicated teachers! The amount is a disgrace. That’s $9.62 per week or $1.37 per day

Now, Sen. has motioned to recommit the bill to committee, which would essentially kill it with this being a floor deadline day. He says there are too many questions surrounding the conference report

Sen. Simmons says he is trying to do the right thing by women and children with this amendment, and that when victims of rape and incest find out they might be pregnant they are able to have an abortion performed.

. is asking Senate to vote for his amendment, providing an exception if the mother has been raped or in incest This amendment and support for/against it speaks to what is most frustrating and, ultimately, intractable about the debate on all abortion law

As Governor of , I was proud to pass largest teacher pay increase in US. We should pay teachers like we pay ballplayers. We rely on them for our children, the most precious people in our lives, yet give them little money or help & ask them for the impossible every day
