Let’s call it for what it is: Trump’s actions to undermine the US Postal Service are an attack on free and fair elections. In 2016, nearly one in four voters cast their ballot through the mail‼️

We are not going to let Trump and his cronies sabotage, bankrupt, and privatize the Postal Service. We are not going to let them suppress vote by mail and undermine democracy. We are going to fight like hell to .

No one with cancer should have to beg for money on GoFundMe. No one should die because they can't pay for insulin. No one with coronavirus should be afraid to see a doctor. We must tax billionaires' pandemic profits to make health care a right for all.

Puerto Rico can no longer be treated like a colony. All Puerto Ricans must be able to fully exercise their right to vote.

A miles de personas en Puerto Rico se les negó el derecho al voto ayer. Para garantizar que todos votos se cuenten durante esta pandemia, debemos proteger el Servicio Postal, el envío de papeletas por correo, y los recursos a gobiernos locales para realizar elecciones seguras.

Thousands of people in Puerto Rico were denied the right to vote yesterday. To ensure every vote is counted during this pandemic, we must protect the Postal Service and mail-in ballots and make sure local governments have the money they need to run safe, secure elections.

Sitting at his luxury golf club, Trump issued executive orders that: ❌ Won't stop evictions ❌ Won't extend unemployment benefits ❌ Won't support states and cities But I'm sure millions going jobless and hungry will be relieved to hear he had fun golfing.

The insurance companies and the drug companies have spent billions to protect their obscene profits by lying to the American people about Canada’s universal health care. Together, we will defeat their greed and guarantee health care as a human right.

In the midst of a global pandemic, President Trump’s lawless deportation and detention regime continues to target the most vulnerable. We must invest in our immigrant communities, not pour more money into ICE, CBP, and private detention centers.

If we could bail out large corporations, please do not tell me that we cannot save the Postal Service.

This man's hospital bills for coronavirus cost $1.9 million. Meanwhile Mark Zuckerberg's wealth just surpassed $100 billion. During this crisis, we must tax billionaires' pandemic profits in order to guarantee free health care for all.

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.

The coronavirus crisis displayed our dangerous levels of economic inequality, and the Trump administration's response has only exacerbated the gap between the richest and the rest of us. We need a wealth tax to and get us back on track. Now.

Today is the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. Seven years ago, it was gutted by the Supreme Court, leading to a wave of voter suppression laws. Our job now is to restore and expand the Voting Rights Act, fight voter suppression, and guarantee the right to vote.

We are in the midst of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. And the Republican-led Senate is doing nothing. Join me on the Senate floor to demand help for the working class who are hurting like they have never hurt before.

Maybe, just maybe, Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump should listen to teachers and public health experts instead of threatening to cut funding for public schools.

Congratulations to the people of Missouri for voting to expand Medicaid! Across the political spectrum, the American people know that nobody should go without health care. Together, we are building a powerful grassroots movement to guarantee health care as a human right for all.
