This is awful news. Praying for the safe return of those still missing and thankful for the brave servicemembers taking part in search and rescue efforts.

Think about this. 60,000 flee a devastating earthquake, seeking safety. We welcome them into the US with open arms, as their nation struggles to recover. Now, at the snap of a finger, the Trump administration revokes their status and plans to deport them. Such cruelty.

If you’re reading this, you will be impacted by this FCC decision. Soon, internet providers could jack up your prices and even limit what content you can see. This is a horrible step away from a free and open internet.

How can my Republican colleagues call this bill a "tax cut" when it's actually a tax INCREASE for *more than half* of American households?

When it comes to health care, Americans deserve more choices and lower costs. I’ve got a plan to help get us there. It’s called Medicare X, and you can read more about it here.

I guess when they call this a “jobs bill” they mean that, once it passes, you’ll have to get a second one.

It's 11:21pm. Most Americans are asleep. But the GOP members of the Senate Finance Committee just rammed through their tax bill on a partisan vote, under cover of darkness. This process is an embarrassment.

"It's not good for me. Believe me," Trump said of the GOP tax plan back in Sept. In fact, he and his family could save more than $1B under House bill that just passed

We need Americans to speak out now more than ever. Senate Rs are still deliberating their plan, and they don’t yet have the votes. Call your senator TODAY to tell them NO tax plan that raises middle class taxes, attacks health care, and blows up the deficit. 202-224-3121.

This news will affect every single American and the entire U.S. economy. And not in a good way.

Three former SecDefs tell Congress: If you care about our national defense, oppose the GOP tax plan. I agree. This bill would jeopardize our efforts to fund the military.

The Democratic Party is stronger when we champion small-d democracy. That’s why I hope the DNC unity commission eliminates superdelegates. I am one, and I’ll happily give it up for a more democratic process.

While you were sleeping, the GOP made a big change to the tax bill. Individuals and small businesses will see big tax increases after 2025, while the breaks for big companies are permanent. Backwards priorities, under cover of darkness.

Earlier this year, during the repeated (and failed) GOP efforts to repeal the ACA, I said that I suspected my GOP colleagues would use efforts to gut health care to fund their tax cut proposal. I am sad to say that's exactly what they're doing now.

Today, Senate Rs also confirmed their plan will repeal health care reform's individual mandate—a move that could lead to an estimated 13 million Americans losing insurance and further sabotage of our insurance markets.
