While Trump provided a trillion dollar tax giveaway to the top 1% and profitable corporations, his budget would deny high-quality childcare and early childhood education to nearly 150,000 kids by cutting Head Start by $7.6 billion over the next ten years.

Trump's budget would take away nutrition assistance from more than 1 million pregnant women, infants and children by cutting the WIC program by $5.8 billion over the next decade. We must defeat this cruel budget.

I voted against the war in Iraq. Sadly, much of what I feared in fact did happen. I don't want to see it happen again.

16 years ago, the United States invaded Iraq. I opposed it at the time, warning of unintended consequences. We are still dealing with those disastrous consequences today and will be for many years. We need a foreign policy that focuses on diplomacy, not war.

Trump’s proposed increase in base Pentagon spending could make public colleges and universities tuition-free over the next decade.

Today’s vote is about much more than a wall or whether there is a national emergency on the southern border. There is not. It's about whether we are a nation of laws, where the president obeys the Constitution and democratic processes. We will not become an authoritarian nation.

Trump’s budget pays for his huge tax break to the top one percent by cutting $1.5 trillion from Medicaid, $845 billion from Medicare and $25 billion from Social Security. That is unacceptable.

In an historic vote, the Senate sent an important message: we will no longer support Saudi Arabia in causing the worst humanitarian disaster on the planet. Congress will reassert its constitutional authority on issues of war and end U.S. support for the war in Yemen.

This is historic. For the first time in 45 years, Congress is one step closer to withdrawing U.S. forces from an unauthorized war. We must end the war in Yemen.

Climate change is the existential crisis of our time. Why isn't this something we talk about on the news every day?

This is very good news. We can't properly reform our broken criminal justice system without ending the death penalty. We must abolish the death penalty once and for all.

Yemen is experiencing the worst humanitarian disaster in the world due to the Saudi-led war. The U.S. has been Saudi Arabia's partner in this horrific war. Too often, our weapons are being used to kill civilians. Today, the Senate can take a major step toward ending this war.

Wealth inequality in America is at an all-time high. It's time we make millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share.

Donald Trump's budget is not only an absolute disaster – full of ideas that the American people have already rejected – it exposes Trump for the fraud that he is.

85,000 children have starved to death in Yemen as a result of the Saudi-led war. U.S. participation in this war has not been authorized by Congress and is therefore unconstitutional. Tomorrow the Senate will vote to end U.S. support for this disastrous and unconstitutional war.

Medicaid covers nearly half of all births in the U.S. But Donald Trump wants to cut Medicaid by $1.5 trillion. Our job: Stop Trump's cruel budget and guarantee health care to every woman, man and child in this country, not throw more people off the health care they have.

Without new funding, more than 1 million Puerto Ricans will be impacted by cuts to their food assistance. Congress must act immediately to end this humanitarian crisis.

Amazon must recognize that workers' rights don't stop at the minimum wage. Amazon must significantly improve working conditions at its warehouses and respect the constitutional right of its employees to form a union and bargain collectively for a better life.
