Enhanced unemployment benefits are set to expire in 31 days. But this crisis will not. Here’s how @RonWyden  and I are proposing to extend them for as long as this crisis continues: The American Workforce Rescue Act. #DemsDemandAction 

I call on #Nicaragua  to be more open to dialogue with civil society, and to cooperate with the UN & the Inter-American system. This is fundamental to strengthen the response to #COVID19 , and to overcome the socio-political crisis – @mbachelet  at #HRC44  👉

Experts like Harvard professor @jasonfurman  agree: “The Coronavirus Medicaid Response Act would not just protect American workers and communities against damage from the COVID crisis, it would permanently reduce the severity of recessions, improve healthcare, and protect jobs.”

I took to the floor with @SenatorDurbin  to demand that the Senate pass the American Dream and Promise Act, #HR6 . We need to fight for our Dreamers. So many of them are on the frontlines of this crisis fighting for us! But Senate Republicans just blocked it.

We CANNOT allow Republicans to let enhanced unemployment benefits expire amid COVID. I took to @DataProgress  to explain how @RonWyden  & I are proposing to extend them as long as this crisis continues: The American Workforce Rescue Act #DemsDemandAction 

Some businesses will not make it through the pandemic-spurred economic crisis. Consumer spending will not fully bounce back even into next year. And there is a serious chance of a double-dip downturn that could permanently scar the American labor force.

This moment is nothing less than an “existential crisis” that will reshape American society, says Danielle Allen, head of Harvard’s Safra Center for Ethics and co-author of the university’s “Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience

The Democrats see an opportunity in this crisis. Not to help the American people, but to hold an emergency relief bill hostage until they get their radical wish list. How long will Arkansans and Americans across the country have to wait?

I get the sense that this is not only the low point of the Trump presidency but the low point of the American presidency ever. Has any president ever been this overmatched by a crisis?

In the last 24 hours, the American president has: 1. Corruptly pressured a governor to drop lawsuits against him to reverse a punitive policy change 2. Claimed the power to personally direct the Justice Department to investigate anyone he wants Our democracy is in crisis.

Partners HealthCare CEO Anne Klibanski, who makes between $2M and $6M every year, has refused to pay her hospital staff hazard pay during this crisis. Last year, the company made $485M in profit. The American health care system is beyond broken.

This is a serious problem. As the current crisis illustrates, we should NOT be dependent on China for life-saving medicines. We can’t keep giving China that economic/military weapon. We need domestic capacity, made in the USA, to protect American lives.

No American or the world can take confidence from what we just witnessed. In the midst of an epic crisis-a moment that calls for calm, steady leadership, the @POTUS  shows himself to be deeply unstable and erratic.

We are in the greatest health care crisis of our lives. The economy may slide into a depression. Saying “we are not a shipping clerk” re: the guarantee of medical supplies to American hospitals is chilling. This is a national emergency can’t be subcontracted out to 50 governors.

Attorney General Bill Barr: “The crisis that we’re dealing with today is right on our door step and it presents a real clear and present danger to the American people."

No but seriously: what is the US Congress doing on Monday to address the acute humanitarian crisis for 3.5 million American citizens?

Mr. President, I see you’ve had a busy morning of “Executive Time.” Instead of tweeting false smears, the American people would appreciate it if you turned off the TV and helped solve the funding crisis, protected Dreamers or...really anything else.
