How many police officers does it take to arrest a homeless black man for stealing food from a grocery store? 12. 6 cars. Guns were drawn. I yelled "Happy Thanksgiving" to them while shaking my head as I passed them in the parking lot.

There's a big difference between "want" and "need." Donald Trump wants to have won the election. Americans need COVID relief. See the difference?
Instead of working to pass much-needed relief to help the people of this country get through the pandemic, @senatemajldr sent the Senate home. This is shameful—and I'll keep fighting to get families, communities, and businesses the support they need.

This is a line for a food bank in Dallas. Congress has decided to leave millions of Americans to suffer and die.
Donald Trump’s final act as president may be his most damaging. The President and his team are making wild claims without evidence, which won’t change the result but do undermine confidence in our elections and threaten the promise of American democracy.
MA & our country already had a public health crisis before COVID: the opioid epidemic. Overdose numbers among Black & Latinx residents are especially alarming. And new data show the crisis has only gotten worse during the pandemic. We need to do something.
