It’s been 50 years since the world first saw that giant leap forward — I remember my brothers and I gathering around our black and white TV to watch, knowing that it was a truly historic moment. Thankful for the men and women at inspiring us, then and now!

$7.25 an hour is not a livable wage, period. No American working a full-time job should be living in poverty, but millions are. Let’s bring this bill to the Senate floor and I will proudly vote YES on a $15 minimum wage!

Bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate were clear: DON'T sell weapons to Saudi Arabia—weapons that in all likelihood will be used against innocent civilians in Yemen. Trump‘s disregard for the American people's elected representatives on this issue is shameful.

I just sent a letter calling on the FBI to open an investigation into the Saudi government’s brutal murder of Virginia resident and journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Despite credible evidence of high-level Saudi involvement, the Trump administration inexplicably refuses to act.

Sad news about the passing of Johnny Clegg. If you ever saw his band live, you will never forget the experience. “One (Hu)Man One Vote.”

The EEOC cites “go back to where you came from” as a classic form of discrimination that violates civil rights. The President’s bigoted words are so contrary to who we are as a country that we literally have laws against them.

The President starts mass deportations today. It’s also Woody Guthrie’s birthday, who protested cruel deportations in his 1948 song, “Plane Wreck at Los Gatos.” “Some of us are illegal, and some are not wanted... They chase us like outlaws, like rustlers, like thieves.”

This President sits exactly at the nexus of cruelty and incompetence, and we’ve got to do everything we can to stand up against his heartless actions.

Trump can’t launch a unilateral war with Iran. The House affirmed that today and a majority of Senators agree. We need to put up guardrails against unnecessary war.

Acosta was never fit to serve in the Cabinet — his departure is the right thing for our country. Now it’s time to focus on finally securing justice for survivors of Epstein’s abuse and getting a Labor Secretary who will stand up for workers and trafficking victims.

"I am afraid every day for the life of my daughter." Kids like Josephine and Jack—born with preexisting conditions that result in high medical costs—are at risk of losing their health care. Why? Because of the GOP-led, Trump-backed lawsuit to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

The young girls who survived Epstein's abuse had the right to decide for themselves whether to testify against their abuser. Acosta robbed them of that right when he kept the sweetheart deal from them.

Acosta is trying to defend the indefensible. He put a monstrous predator above survivors of sexual abuse, and he’s got to go — period.

. and I called on DOJ to publicly release the findings of its investigation into Acosta's sweetheart deal for Epstein. With each new revelation, we are repulsed that such a miscarriage of justice not only took place but was allowed to stand for so many years.

I don’t feel “very badly” for a guy who cut a sweetheart deal for a serial predator. I grieve for dozens of young women who were trafficked by that predator.

Shameful. Republicans in Richmond have decided preventing gun violence wasn’t even worth two full hours of debate. Virginians deserve better.
