Guaranteeing 7 paid sick days to rail workers would cost the rail industry a grand total of $321 million a year – less than 2% of its profits. Please don't tell me the rail industry can't afford it. Rail companies spent $25.5 billion on stock buybacks and dividends this year.

Today, 72 Members of Congress made it clear that it would be an outrage to attach Sen. Manchin's fossil fuel "side deal" to the Continuing Resolution or any other must pass bill. At a time when our planet is on fire, we must take on the greed of Big Oil & reject this dirty deal. https://t.co/5AhlaaYVar

Yesterday, I was on the Senate floor to discuss climate catastrophes are happening all over the world and why we must not make it easier for the fossil fuel industry to destroy our planet. If you missed it, tune in. https://t.co/9uuglwFQjU

It's no accident that 71% of Americans have a favorable view of unions the highest since 1965, while just 36% hold a favorable view of corporations the lowest since Wall Street crashed the economy in 2008. The American people are sick and tired of corporate greed.

Congress must listen to the 650+ environmental and civil rights organizations who wrote that it would be "morally abhorrent" to attach Sen. Manchin’s fossil fuel "side deal" to the Continuing Resolution or any other must pass bill. https://t.co/kukwXsAje2

Combating climate change is more important than fossil fuel profits. I will not vote for any bill that makes it easier for Big Oil to destroy the planet and that includes approving the Mountain Valley Pipeline. The Continuing Resolution must not be held hostage by Big Oil.
