For far too many people it's too difficult to get to the polls. We need to make it much easier for everyone to participate in the democratic process. Election Day should be a national holiday.

Congratulations to Seattle for clearing past misdemeanor convictions for marijuana possession that were prosecuted before marijuana was legalized. We must decriminalize marijuana nationally and expunge federal marijuana use and possession crimes.

Right now, President Trump and his Republican enablers are working to erode protections for patients with pre-existing conditions. Americans deserve better. Health care should be affordable and protect patients when they actually need it.

Jeff Bezos is the wealthiest person in the world. It is not enough for him to offer 25 cents-an-hour wage increases to employees making grossly inadequate wages. There is no reason why Bezos and Amazon cannot pay workers $15 an hour plus decent benefits.

Mayor is a doing a great job in standing up for the people of Puerto Rico. How outrageous is it that the president is opposing Puerto Rican statehood, a major decision, simply because of his views on one local leader?

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez have risked their lives to come forward and tell their stories. Republican Senators, their staff and the Trump administration must stop disparaging these brave women and treat them with respect.

If Brett Kavanaugh refuses to withdraw from consideration for the Supreme Court following these two very serious allegations of sexual assault, then the Senate Judiciary Committee must postpone any votes on his nomination until a full and fair investigation is conducted.

Today we learned that the State Department's legislative affairs staff is led by a former lobbyist for arms manufacturer Raytheon. This is how the billionaire class profits off of the devastation of Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East.

The President's statement to discredit Christine Blasey Ford is sexist, outrageous and based on ignorance. Dr. Blasey is a credible person who has made a very serious allegation. She must be treated with respect and not face intimidation.

The Trump administration must reverse this decision. We cannot make cuts to essential and life-saving programs to pay for their racist, xenophobic agenda.

Trump's former chief economic advisor Gary Cohn seems to have a bit of amnesia. He recently asked the question, "What laws were broken?" when asked about the big banks who crashed our economy in 2008. Let's refresh his memory:

If Scotland can demand that Amazon get off corporate welfare and pay its workers a living wage, then so can the US. Now is the time for people to come together around the world to take on the greed of the oligarchs.

Today, our illustrious president said that Medicare for all "can't be afforded." Mr. President, it's your disastrous efforts to take health care away from millions of Americans that can't be afforded.

Mr. Pompeo: human lives are worth far more than defense contractor profits. We must end America's involvement in this disastrous and unconstitutional war. The Senate must also investigate this effort to mislead us.
