There is no emergency justifying selling the Saudis bombs to kill children in Yemen. Congress passed a war powers resolution to end U.S. involvement and there is bipartisan opposition to the Saudi-led war. Congress must defund any such effort.

I say to the right-wing extremists who want to roll back Roe v. Wade: Abortion is a constitutional right and we are going to keep it that way.

How many kids suffer from mercury, lead, and soot in their air? And the most polluting incinerators in America hurt low-income and minority neighborhoods the most. We need clean air and water for all—not a government that works on behalf of polluters.

I agree with these 76 retired generals and admirals, who warn that a war with Iran would be a disaster for the region and for U.S. security, and who urge Trump to pursue diplomacy rather than an unnecessary conflict.

I understand President Trump is blocking a resolution at the that would require drug companies to disclose actual R&D costs for pharmaceutical drugs. Nobody should believe Mr. Trump when he talks about taking on Big Pharma.

Let me be clear: it is a disturbing attack on the First Amendment for the Trump administration to decide who is or is not a reporter for the purposes of a criminal prosecution. Donald Trump must obey the Constitution, which protects the publication of news about our government.

Young people have already demonstrated that they can take on powerful fossil fuel companies and force politicians to answer their call to action. To the more than 1 million people walking out for climate justice today: I stand with you.

I was right about Vietnam. I was right about Iraq. I will do everything in my power to prevent a war with Iran. I apologize to no one.

Trump said he would “stop Wall Street from getting away with murder." Instead, he deregulated Wall Street and gave them a $20 billion tax break. I've got a better idea. We're going to make Wall Street pay its fair share and stop reckless speculation.

I support the Transport Workers Union in their struggle against American Airlines. This is what a strong union and strong union leadership is about:

It is obvious that the President is a pathological liar who does not understand the Constitution. The fact is that if Mr. Trump continues to disregard the right of Congress to subpoena, he will leave House Members with no choice but to begin an impeachment inquiry.

Thank you for stopping by to talk about the amazing work you did in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria! The full resources of the United States must be used to ensure that Puerto Rico gets the food, water, housing, and electricity they still desperately need.

Congress must rein in corporate greed and make Wall Street pay its fair share to ensure that every American is able to benefit in our economy, not just the rich and powerful. Joining and to introduce the Inclusive Prosperity Act.

Yes, facts matter. Delta workers don't make as little as $9 an hour. They make as little as $8.25 an hour. It's time for Delta's CEO to stop misleading, stop discouraging workers from joining a union and pay all of them a living wage with good benefits.

This afternoon, I attended a Senate intelligence briefing where the Trump administration presented its policy on Iran. Without going into specifics, let me just say: If you think the war in Iraq was a disaster, in all likelihood a war with Iran would be far worse.

It is obvious Secretary DeVos wants to dismantle and privatize public education. No wonder she calls unions and local governments an "empire" to defeat. Our communities need an advocate for public education, not a billionaire advancing the interests of for-profit industry.

Can you believe this? We, as taxpayers, spent millions to develop a treatment for HIV. disregarded our government patent to charge $2,000 a month for the very same drug. We have got to stop Big Pharma from price-gouging the American people.
