America's 467 billionaires have accumulated $731 billion since the pandemic started. Let's put a 60% tax on those gains and provide health care for every single American for the next year.

As I’ve been saying...”Before the coronavirus pandemic put millions of Americans out of work, spending so much money on new doomsday weapons was profligate. Now, it seems morally indefensible.” Powerful editorial ⁦⁩. Well worth your time.

What kind of society do we live in where tens of millions go hungry and jobless while 467 people—the richest 0.001% of America—each accumulate $5 billion a day during this pandemic? We're going to to provide health care to our people.

I investigated COVID-19 cases at assisted living centers with & . Residents were 5 times more likely to test positive. Inpatient treatment facilities have similar risks, but they also don’t report their COVID-19 cases to HHS or CDC.

More than 160,000 Americans are dead. Millions more have lost their jobs. The American people pay with their lives every day for the criminal negligence of the Trump administration to combat COVID. It is time the country’s wealthiest do the same with their profits.

Glad to see that the Division of Marine Fisheries is now able to distribute this hard-won and much-needed relief to our fishing communities.

I’m happy to see the Massachusetts plan for how to distribute CARES Act fisheries relief be among the first approved in the country. I worked with NOAA and the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission to ensure things moved along smoothly.

We need to give every American a retroactive $2,000/month payment for each of March, April, May, June, July, and August. $2,000/month going forward until this crisis is over. And then $2,000/month for three months after that.

Immigrants are being left out of COVID stimulus payments. In Massachusetts, 75% of households surveyed that have an undocumented member have not received any kind of federal stimulus funds. 78% report not having enough to eat. We need safety net funding for ALL immigrants.

America has the opportunity to advance the offshore wind industry and provide clean energy for millions of homes, 80,000 annual jobs, and billions in revenue and investment. We must continue to support offshore wind, pass my Offshore WIND Act, and fight for a clean energy future.

It would be unacceptable to leave even a single student without the tools they need to safely learn from home, but the GOP’s proposal could strand 16 million kids without adequate internet access/devices. I’m fighting for at least $4bn in E-Rate funding.
