Elizabeth Warren 17 hours ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 10:00pm I just told Rachel @Maddow: we can’t let the infrastructure train leave the station while child care and clean energy get left on the platform – or while billionaires and big corporations don't pay their fair share in taxes.

Link to Image Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 12:35pm I believe that President Biden should #CancelStudentDebt to provide lasting relief to working families and boost our economy. But until then, extending the pause on student loan payments is a critical way to help tens of millions of borrowers being crushed by debt. Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 12:35pm The pause on student loan payments has been a huge relief for families, but it ends in 100 days. We're urging President Biden to extend it at least another 6 months to give @usedgov more time to prepare and borrowers and our economy more time to recover. https://t.co/pF8CNgJcbq Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 9:47am I applaud the @SecDef for endorsing this bold and long overdue step.

Senate Republicans refused to even debate the bill.
This continued obstructionism highlights the need to eliminate the filibuster. Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Tuesday Jun 22 - 6:24pm Mitch McConnell and the desperate Republican minority just silenced the American people, sold out our elections to their billionaire donors, and defended corruption that is rotting government to its core. Democrats must #AbolishTheFilibuster now – our democracy is at stake. https://t.co/WvjaP1gJBD Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Tuesday Jun 22 - 5:10pm I support @POTUS extending this moratorium. Congress provided money to get renters current, but many states need more time to get the money delivered. COVID remains a serious risk, and we can't let families get evicted while they're waiting for support. https://t.co/b9zqU6CM5f Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Tuesday Jun 22 - 3:41pm I’m glad the FTC will be investigating this deal.

It’s time to make them vote this week and show whose side they’re on. Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Monday Jun 21 - 3:55pm #PrimeDay makes this one of the most dangerous weeks of the year for @Amazon warehouse workers, but Amazon won’t even acknowledge a link between its “productivity” demands and injuries.

We should make this expansion permanent. https://t.co/hrkTnqiQU8 Elizabeth Warren 3 days ago:   Monday Jun 21 - 2:54pm Democrats expanded the #ChildTaxCredit in the #AmericanRescuePlan to automatically help millions of children and families – but even if you don’t file taxes, you may qualify for up to $300 a month. Non-filers should visit the IRS’s new sign-up tool today: https://t.co/4ZzbawzQbq Elizabeth Warren 3 days ago:   Monday Jun 21 - 1:44pm Millions are at risk of default or distress when student loan payments resume. @SenTinaSmith, @SenMarkey and I want the President to #CancelStudentDebt – but until that happens, we want to know how student loan servicers are preparing to support borrowers. https://t.co/fKJRBzPXyY Elizabeth Warren 3 days ago:   Monday Jun 21 - 12:24pm Jeff Bezos is never going to pay his fair share of taxes so long as our tax system focuses on income – not wealth.

Elizabeth Warren 4 days ago:   Saturday Jun 19 - 5:34pm I’ve got an affordable housing bill to build nearly three million housing units, help scrap zoning rules that make housing more expensive, and help first-time homebuyers in formerly redlined areas. Let’s do this. https://t.co/iDEaXetxbU Elizabeth Warren 5 days ago:   Saturday Jun 19 - 2:12pm The IRS has been gutted so badly that it often targets the cheapest people to audit: low-income Black and Brown Americans.

Elizabeth Warren 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 17 - 10:26am Despite every desperate right-wing attack to rip health care away from millions of Americans, the Affordable Care Act is constitutional and it’s here to stay. Now let’s get to work to improve it so every American can get the care they need.
