Latest Scoops

I requested documents from Johnson & Johnson b/c I'm troubled by reports of an alleged decades-long effort by them to potentially mislead regulators & consumers about the safety of one of its products—which is used by parents & children across the country.

It's wrong that survivors of the horrific abuse Jeffrey Epstein committed were denied information about the plea deal ‘of a lifetime’ that now-@LaborSec helped negotiate. I’ll keep pushing for answers to make sure nothing like this happens again.

Johnson & Johnson may have known for decades that small amounts of asbestos had been found in its talc & powder products. This would be unacceptable, & this cover up may have resulted in long-term harm for men, women, & children who used their baby powder.

Declaring a state of emergency when there isn't one isn't how our government is supposed to work & isn't remotely what was intended when emergency authorities were created.

I stand with Democrats, Republicans, and every American who is concerned by this. We will fight back.
ICYMI: @SenateMajLdr McConnell announced a vote for next week on an anti-women's health bill that leading medical organizations have vocally opposed. Democrats stand with women, doctors, nurses, & everyone who cares about women’s health to make sure this bill doesn't become law.
My message about this #TitleX gag rule is that extreme Republicans absolutely do not know better than women about women’s health care, and we are going to make sure we are heard.
Under the #TitleX gag rule, doctors and providers who millions of women trust—disproportionately women of color and women who rely on clinics for affordable care—will be blocked from offering them the full range of repro health options b/c politicians think they know better.
This #TitleX gag rule is meant to do one thing and one thing only: further undermine a woman’s constitutionally protected right to safe, legal abortion in the United States of America.
The anti-women's health bill that @SenateMajLdr McConnell announced is coming up for a vote would put @VP Pence & Republicans right where they don’t belong—in between a woman & her health care provider as she's making personal health decisions. It's unnecessary & harmful.
Reminder: President Trump declared a state of emergency and circumvented Congress and the American people based on lies and a manufactured crisis.

He performed an outrageous, horrific, and un-American abuse of power. If you're shocked and angry about this—you're not alone.

RT if you think Senators shouldn't be cut off after just 5 minutes of questions: https://t.co/oGBRmoVTZ4 #DeVos
Justice Kavanaugh has started attacking Roe v. Wade from the bench—& that means women & men who believe women should have access to safe, legal abortion must stand up stronger than ever for women’s constitutionally protected health care rights. I’m ready & I hope you are too.
RT if you think every worker in America should receive #EqualPay for equal work.
This is about Roe.
This is about health care.
This is about our environment.
This is about our democracy & the rights & freedoms of millions of people in WA & across the nation…

It’s all on the line. Raise your voice. #StopKavanaugh.
Republicans are blocking the release of Judge Kavanaugh’s complete record & President Trump appears to be an unindicted co-conspirator to a federal crime. Put together, that’s more than enough reason to wait before we hold hearings to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court.
The National Archives says it needs more time to produce Judge Kavanaugh’s records so the public can have a full picture of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

People and families deserve to know about Judge Kavanaugh’s complete record. Keep making your voices heard.
There is no urgency to fill this seat before October. Republicans held a Supreme Court seat open for more than a year all to prevent President Obama from fulfilling his constitutional role. Surely we can take the time we need now in order to fulfill OUR constitutional role.
I am here today to say: once again, women are watching, and we’re not going to allow that to happen again.

A rare look inside the GOP’s women’s health caucus.
We passed a bill 3 weeks ago that kept the government open, without funding for Trump’s wall. The Democratic House followed suit and passed a bill that would do the same.

We were elected to make decisions that help the American people, NOT to provide cover to the president.
