President Trump: you are not improving health care when you deny funding to Planned Parenthood and deny millions of women their provider of health care. Stop the attack on women's health.

At a time when banks have never been more profitable, Congress voted yesterday to give them another massive gift in the form of deregulation. Our job is to break up the largest financial institutions in the country, not reward their greed and recklessness.

I am concerned that despite some very good provisions in the VA MISSION Act, it continues a trend toward the slow, steady privatization of the VA. I will vote against it.

How sad is it that we now have students in this country who are expecting violence in their schools. As Congresswoman says, the Congress must stand up to the NRA and pass gun safety legislation. Enough is enough.

At a time of exploding profits, I would hope that would pay everyone who works in your fulfillment centers a living wage. Thank you very much for your invitation to visit a fulfillment center. I look forward to doing that. Let’s work out a mutually convenient time.

Thank you for your response to our video. I remain deeply concerned about Amazon, an enormously profitable corporation, paying workers wages that are so low that they are forced to depend on federal programs like Medicaid, food stamps and public housing for survival.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos' wealth increases by $275 million every single day. Meanwhile, Amazon workers have to rely on food stamps and public assistance just to survive. This is what a rigged economy is all about.

There's a three-letter word stopping us from passing common sense gun safety legislation: NRA.

In Vermont, Planned Parenthood is the only provider of Title X services, and without federal funding, their ability to serve thousands of low-income Vermonters will be seriously limited.

I always find it curious that "conservatives" tell us how much they want to get the government off the backs of the people. But when it comes to women and family planning, they want to the government to tell every woman in America what she can and cannot do with her body.

This is the latest disgraceful attack on women’s rights by the Trump administration. Title X funds provide much-needed family planning services for millions of people around this country.

The American people, gun owners and non-gun owners alike, overwhelmingly support common sense gun safety legislation. It's time to act.

There's little left to be said about the horrific school shooting tragedies that we've seen over and over – today in Texas. These are very sick acts. Congress and Trump must finally have the courage to stand up to the NRA and do what the American people want. Enough is enough!

The three wealthiest people in America own more wealth than the bottom 50 percent — over 160 million people. Meanwhile, almost half of families in America can't afford basic necessities. Is that really the kind of society we want to be living in?

It is not a radical idea to say that every American citizen over the age of 18 should be automatically registered to vote.

We are dealing with a crisis of inequality and that is why we must start making the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes, not give more breaks to those at the top.

The United States Senate just voted to repeal the disastrous FCC decision to end . We must demand that the House does the right thing and stands with the Senate to overturn this decision.

Congratulations, President Trump, on being the first president in history whose speech on "bringing down drug prices" sent pharma stocks soaring.

The Senate just took an important step toward reversing the Trump administration’s disastrous decision to repeal . Now the House must side with the 86% of Americans who support net neutrality and pass this resolution to protect our free speech and democracy.
