Trump's pathological lying never stops. While he continues to tell us how great the "recovery" is doing, the pandemic surges and millions face hunger, eviction and loss of health care. Together, we'll defeat Trump. Together, we'll move this country in a very different direction.

The temperature in Siberia is 100 degrees, wildfires are raging there and sea ice is melting. In the midst of all the other crises we face, we cannot forget climate change. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency and sustainable energy. Now!

Congratulations to the many Native Americans and advocates who struggled to defeat this terrible pipeline, which should never have been built. We must end our dependence on fossil fuels and stop putting corporate profits over Native American rights. The struggle continues.

Politicians and the corporate media won't discuss it much but over the past 30 years the wealth of the top 1% has gone up by $22.65 trillion, while the wealth of the bottom 50% has gone down by $776 billion. This growing wealth inequality is a moral obscenity.

We need to stop bipartisan support for a bloated military budget. While defense contractors make huge profits and we spend more on the military than the next 11 nations combined, doctors and nurses lack masks to help us fight COVID-19. Insane priorities.

We spend $740 billion on the Pentagon, but somehow we don't have enough money to provide health care, housing and childcare to all Americans. My amendment to cut the defense budget by 10% would begin to change our priorities. It will be voted on in the Senate the week of July 20.

“We need elected leaders who are going to stand for what is morally right. Who are going to stand up for humanity. That, at the end of the day, is what people in the community respond to.” –

She wants to create millions of good-paying jobs and rebuild our infrastructure and energy systems. She has been one of Trump’s strongest opponents in Congress. Her voice is important as we push forward with the important work of making a more fair and just America for everyone.

I’m proud to endorse for re-election. Bonnie has always been a strong, progressive voice in the fight for the needs of working families. She understands health care is a human right and the importance of a Medicare for All, single-payer program to cover everyone.

The business model of the pharmaceutical industry is unfettered greed. This is not the time for corporate profiteering of off death and suffering. We must guarantee that coronavirus treatments and vaccines are free to all Americans.

We need to reduce the military budget by 10% and use the savings to invest in distressed communities around the country that are experiencing extreme poverty, mass incarceration, deindustrialization and decades of neglect.

We need progressive leaders like running for office, all over the country, at every level of government. That is how we carry on our movement to build a nation that is based on justice.

Rent is due for millions today, at a time when more than 45 million Americans have filed for unemployment. We need to suspend rent and mortgage payments nationwide. We also must extend the $600/week expansion of unemployment benefits, which expires at the end of the month.

In my view, the time is long overdue for us to take a hard look not only at the size of the Pentagon budget, but at the enormous amount of waste, cost overruns, fraud, and at the financial mismanagement that has plagued the Department of Defense for decades.

Congress must ensure that the treatment and the vaccine for coronavirus are free to all Americans. You should not have to go into debt to survive a pandemic.
