I don’t have to tell anybody that these are really crazy times. But we cannot lose sight of the fact that we have a global climate crisis. And we cannot allow Congress to pass an outrageous $740 billion defense budget while neglecting the needs of our people.

I look forward to working with Vice President Biden to help him win this campaign and to move this country forward toward economic, racial, social, and environmental justice. 3/3

@Paula25801  will be a senator who stands up to the political and economic establishment, puts the working class first, and fights to guarantee health care as a human right. I’m proud to endorse her grassroots campaign and I hope the people of West Virginia will support her.

Our job: put as much pressure as possible on Republican leaders to take action to help the American people right now.

Sign up to join our day of action on Saturday! Let’s continue the political revolution and expand our movement by electing strong progressive candidates across the country.

Here's something we don't discuss much. Life expectancy is in direct correlation to income. If you're rich you're likely to live a much longer and healthier life than if you're poor. Poverty kills. Our job: build a health care system and economy that work for all, not just a few.

Trump rejects science on COVID-19. And thousands unnecessarily die. Trump rejects science on climate change. And the very future of the planet is at stake. We cannot continue a government which rejects science. This November, we must come together and reject Trump.

We can keep winning races and electing progressives around the country, but we need your help. Join our #SummerOfAction  and sign up to make calls today!

It's summer. It's hot. It's vacation time. Sadly, the U.S. is the only major country not to guarantee any paid vacation or holidays. The result: 1 in 4 workers get no paid vacation time or holidays. This is outrageous. We need an economy that works for workers, not just owners.


Trump just had peaceful demonstrators viciously attacked. No, Mr. President. This is not a dictatorship. This is the United States of America. Our citizens have a constitutional right to peacefully protest. It's called the First Amendment.

Donald Trump believes climate change is a hoax. Donald Trump is an idiot.

Let us go forward together. The struggle continues.

Once a vaccine for coronavirus is developed, it should be free.

Young people: this is your election. You have the chance to transform this country. Vote!

We need real police department reform. Every police officer involved in a killing must be held accountable, and those found guilty must be punished with the full force of the law. Every killing of a person held in police custody must be investigated by the Department of Justice.
