I'm LIVE now, speaking on the floor of the U.S. Senate. In every state in America, people are hurting and calling out for help. Let us hear their cries. Let us act now to end police brutality, halt a deadly pandemic, and provide economic relief to all. https://t.co/5htWFM6xSJ

Target’s announcement today shows us that a $15 minimum wage is an idea whose time has come. Years of grassroots organizing has created an unstoppable movement. Now the Senate must pass our Raise the Wage Act and guarantee a dignified, living wage for every worker in America. https://t.co/EgjBTkgTZs

It’s time to abolish “qualified immunity" so police officers can be held fully accountable for abuses they commit. No one is above the law.

President Trump forced hazardous meat plants to reopen to protect the profits of large corporations over the lives of meatpacking workers who got sick and died from coronavirus. Beyond disgusting. It's time to put people before profits. https://t.co/XVKh7gpfYq

President Trump’s effort to dismantle the Postal Service would be a disaster for our seniors. We can't let Trump and his cronies have their way. Congress must act to save the Postal Service so seniors can access life-saving medication and mail-in ballots. https://t.co/MBX4YmgVMh

This pandemic is not going away any time soon. Our people are struggling. A one-time $1,200 check sure as hell ain’t cutting it. Congress has got to get its act together and provide monthly $2,000 payments to all—and make it cover the past three months. https://t.co/bGVdsYKcmK

I’ll be damned if when a COVID-19 vaccine is developed, more people die because they can’t afford to purchase it. Any life-saving vaccine must be free.

"Less than lethal"? What a joke. These weapons are fracturing people's skulls, destroying their eyeballs, and harming their lungs. Enough. We must ban the use of rubber bullets, tear gas and pepper spray on protesters across the country. https://t.co/glYh47tTnE

This is what oligarchy looks like. During the pandemic, 630 billionaires have seen their wealth go up by $565 billion while almost everyone else has seen their wealth go down by $6.5 trillion. We cannot push this grotesque inequality under the rug. https://t.co/CVMjUJPvTl
