We must do everything we can to protect our trans brothers and sisters from violence, and we will work every day until hatred and discrimination truly have no place in our society.

It’s no secret that prescription drug prices are out of control. and I will introduce legislation to stand up to Big Pharma, bring prices down, and finally put patients over profits.

Trump is clearly very afraid of the prospect of the Senate delivering a serious rebuke to his policy by voting to end U.S. support for the Yemen war. But that is exactly what we will do when we vote on SJ Res 54 next week.

Trump also blamed Iran for the disastrous war in Yemen, despite the fact that the Saudi-led coalition has caused the most destruction by far.

Today President Trump, in a rambling and dishonest statement, tried to defend the despotic Saudi regime and cast doubt on the CIA’s conclusion that the crown prince was personally involved in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

Nobody said it would be easy to take on the drug and insurance companies and special interests who make billions from our dysfunctional health care system. But we will win this struggle for Medicare for All because the American people understand that health care is a right.

Congratulations to the Toys R Us workers who organized and stood up to Wall Street to fight for the severance pay they deserved. We will continue to fight the greed of Wall Street and private equity, and to expand the collective bargaining rights of all Americans.

We're proud to endorse and 's game-changing new bill to stop Big Pharma's unconscionable price gouging. Americans shouldn't have to ration access to treatment or go bankrupt to pay for the meds they need.

70% of Americans support expanding access to quality, affordable health care through a Medicare for All program. It’s time to give the American people what they want. It’s time for Medicare for All.

No other country allows pharma companies to charge any price they want for any reason they want. That has to change. At the start of the new Congress and I will introduce legislation to stop Big Pharma from ripping off the American people.

At a time of massive corporate profits, and an already regressive tax system, Amazon and other large corporations do not need corporate welfare. Instead, they need to pay their fair share of taxes.

Also worth noting — this poll destroys the old garbage talking point about how Dems must “moderate” to attract independent voters. In fact, support for Medicare for All is STRONGEST among independents, according to this poll from the Wall St Dems.

On Monday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. we're holding a national town hall on climate change, an issue that does not get nearly enough attention in the mainstream media. Let's go forward to protect the planet and create millions of good-paying jobs.

The CIA has confirmed what was obvious, that Jamal Khashoggi was murdered at the direction of the Saudi crown prince. The United States must thoroughly reevaluate our relationship with the brutal Saudi dictatorship, and start by ending support for the catastrophic war in Yemen.

Have your prescriptions shot up in price? Are you splitting pills in half to make your prescriptions last longer? Have you had to stop taking medicine altogether in order to pay other bills? Tell Bernie your story.

I say to the Walton family of Walmart: The American people are sick and tired of subsidizing your greed. Get off of welfare and pay your workers a living wage.

The brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents demands that we make clear that United States support for Saudi Arabia is not unconditional. It’s time to stop the war in Yemen.
