Right in the midst of a global pandemic, the Trump Administration is doubling down on their efforts to strip health care away from millions of Americans. I'm leading my colleagues in the Senate in demanding @TheJusticeDept  halt its reckless attacks on the ACA.

If Mathias Cormann retires later this year here’s a possible reshuffle: Simon Birmingham into finance and senate leader, Greg Hunt into trade, Linda Reynolds into health, Peter Dutton into defence, Stuart Robert into home affairs and Ben Morton enters cabinet.

Public health officials told a Senate committee Thursday that a panel of experts outside the U.S. government may help decide who gets the eventual COVID-19 vaccine first.

PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: I’m guest hosting @JimmyKimmelLive  July 8th and 9th with special guests @theebillyporter , Amy Schumer, South Carolina Senate candidate @harrisonjaime  and in her late night talk show debut, rising pop goddess @IKimPetras !!! Tune in!

Families, workers and small businesses across Michigan are still grappling with #COVID19  & there is more work to be done. The Senate should not adjourn for two weeks and instead stay in session to deal with this unprecedented economic and health crisis!

It’s been a long time coming, but the Senate finally passed my bipartisan bill blocking e-cigarette sales to children. This puts the same safeguards in place as traditional cigarettes purchased online. It’s time to protect children’s health against addictive substances

From expanding access to health care to protecting public lands to growing the economy, Governor@stevebullockmt  is ready to win and fight for Montanans in the Senate. #MTSen 

Health care remains a top issue for voters, but Senate Republicans continue to try to sabotage access to quality, affordable coverage. In November, voters will hold them accountable.

As I mentioned in this week’s U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Hearing, @CDCgov  has updated information on who is at increased risk for severe illness from #COVID19 :

Senate Health Cmte Chair Alexander: Whether there will be enough tests to allow teams to play sports or spectators to watch may depend upon breakthrough concepts being fast tracked at the National Institutes of Health ‘shark tank.’ The more tests, the more sports.

I urge the Senate and House to pass the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act with additional funding for PPP, Hospitals, and Testing. After I sign this Bill, we will begin discussions on the next Legislative Initiative with fiscal relief....

Senate Democrats just blocked a major move to turn this economy around &get ppl back 2work Phase 3 relief package incl recovery checks to help families pay their bills +very strongly beefed up unemployment insurance +resources for our health care system This is NO time 4 politics

REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE VOTED THIS WEEK TO CUT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID IN HALF The GOP just keeps coming for your health care again and again and again and again. And this time, they want to do it while extending President@realDonaldTrump ’s tax cuts for the wealthiest few. No

GOP controlled the House and Senate for two years under Trump. If the wall was such an emergency, they could have used reconciliation to pass it with 50 votes in Senate. Why didn’t they? I guess throwing millions off health care & cutting corporate taxes were higher priorities.

The Senate Republicans’ bill put corporations first, not workers & families. Today, @HouseDemocrats  will unveil a bill that takes responsibility for the health, wages & well-being of America’s workers: the Take Responsibility for Workers & Families Act.

Today, 52 Senate Republicans went on the record against affordable health care and protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Today, 52 Senate Republicans voted against patients and families. Don't forget.

BREAKING: Senate Republicans just released the schedule of hearings, committee markups and public testimony for their health care bill.

Thank you Mr. Trump for admitting that universal health care is the better way to go. I'll be sure to quote you on the floor of the Senate.

RT if you want Senate Republicans to start over and work with Democrats on a bipartisan plan to improve the health care system

RT if you agree: the Senate GOP's decision to hide their health care plan is undemocratic, dangerous, and just plain wrong.
