I agree with Bill Gates. The last thing Congress should be doing is giving huge tax breaks to billionaires like him.

I agree with Bill Gates. At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, the last thing Congress should do is give huge tax breaks to billionaires. The very wealthy should be paying more in taxes, not less.

Happy to be home in Burlington. It's a warm and pleasant afternoon on Lake Champlain.

Will the Republicans in Congress listen to the American people, or simply obey the dictates of the NRA?

We must take on the NRA and pass commonsense legislation to keep our children safe.
 -Tighten background checks
 -End the gun show loophole 
-Crack down on people who buy guns legally for people who can’t
 -Ban civilian sale of semiautomatic assault weapons

We should not be selling assault weapons in this country. These weapons are not for hunting. They are for killing human beings. These are military weapons.

If Republicans actually listened to those in need, like Cara Sachs, maybe they would understand that "entitlement reform" will devastate the lives of millions of Americans.

President Trump's immoral budget will cut Social Security benefits for millions of hardworking Americans. And that means he lied to the American people.

I thank German Ambassador for joining me in Vermont this past weekend. I have always believed it is important for us to learn about what goes on in other countries, and there is plenty to be learned from Germany.

Maybe, just maybe, after 18 school shootings in America in just 43 days of 2018 the Congress might want to consider common-sense gun safety legislation and save innocent lives.

Another horrific shooting. Another unspeakable horror. My thoughts are with everyone at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after this terrible day.

Don't just weep. Fight for a progressive agenda to reduce income and wealth inequality.

Congratulations to gold-medalist , a first-generation American. Her father emigrated from South Korea to America in 1982 and worked his way up to an engineering job which he left to support her ambitions.

You can't get 80 percent of the American people to agree on what type of ice cream is best, and yet you have an even larger majority now who agree on giving Dreamers protection and a path towards citizenship.

As a result of Trump’s decision to revoke DACA, 122 people every day are losing their legal status. We have a moral responsibility today to stand up for the Dreamers and their families.

I do not want to see what the history books will say about this Congress if we allow 800,000 Dreamers to be deported. It would be an indelible moral stain on our country if we fail to act.

This whole debate over immigration and the Dreamers has become somewhat personal for me, because it has reminded me…

Happy Valentine's day to all the millionaires who will not have to pay into Social Security for the rest of the year. Let's lift the cap and end this absurdity.

Ready for a really bad idea? Gut funding for studying and tracking climate change while boosting the continued burning of planet-warming fossil fuels.
