Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine discovery was funded by the taxpayers of this country. It costs Moderna about $2 to produce that vaccine. They now want to charge Americans over $100 a dose for that vaccine. That is absurd. https://t.co/OvL2A7Yq1H

Now, in the midst of a continuing public health crisis and a growing federal deficit, is not the time for Moderna to be quadrupling the price of the COVID-19 vaccine. Now is not the time for unacceptable corporate greed. https://t.co/w8rRyIGWoo

We should ask ourselves about the priorities of this country when year after year, we continue to spend billions of dollars on corporate welfare while 60% of our people live paycheck to paycheck. https://t.co/45T2zJnQqJ

I stand in solidarity with more than 7,000 @nynurses on strike at Mount Sinai Hospital & Montefiore Medical Center. If these hospitals could increase their assets by over $1 billion in 2021, they can afford to pay their nurses fair wages and treat them with dignity & respect.

Allow me to state the obvious: having 46 million people drowning in $1.8 trillion of student debt is not sustainable for working families, or for our country.

Southwest Airlines is a company which spent $5.6 billion on stock buybacks for wealthy shareholders while the workers who keep the airline running work 16-18 hour days and passengers are stranded during the holiday season. Unacceptable. https://t.co/bBpg1gdnaB

Jane and I want to wish you and yours a safe and happy new year. In the year ahead, we must fight harder than ever to create a nation that leads the world in the struggle for peace, and for economic, social, racial and environmental justice.
