Black women earn an estimated $946,120 less than white, non-Hispanic men over the course of a 40-year career. This gap is UNACCEPTABLE and undermines the economic stability of families.

. understands that the death penalty is very costly, unequal in its application, and does nothing to improve public safety. That’s why he’s joining his colleagues and me in calling on @SupremeCtPA to abolish the death penalty once and for all.

The banana split was created in a Latrobe pharmacy in 1904. 🍌🍨😋 115 years later, Latrobe is celebrating with live music on three stages, a car show that will include a pickup truck converted to look like a giant banana -- and lots of banana splits.

This is common sense stuff. It's broadly supported, and overdue for a vote in Pennsylvania. 93 percent of American voters support requiring background checks on all gun sales. Let's get it done! /9
