The Republicans have made it clear, from Mitch McConnell on down, that they want to repeal the estate tax, which mean’s Elon Musk’s family, worth over $200 billion, would get a tax break of up to $83 billion. That is obscene.

Exxon made a record $38 billion in profits in the last 2 quarters, up 228% from last year, by driving up prices outrageously. Now, Exxon's CEO says he's doing you a favor by spending $11.5 billion this year on dividends to enrich his wealthy shareholders. Isn't that rich.

The billionaires who fund AIPAC are spending $1 million against @SummerForPA because she stands with working people and against corporate greed. Democrats must unite and condemn this Super PAC, and do everything possible to elect Summer.

On Sunday, I'm headed to Pennsylvania for 3 events to get out the vote. We must make sure we have the turnout we need in order to create a government that works for all, not just the few. I hope you can join us there.

THANK YOU PHILADELPHIA! We've got two days left until the midterm elections. It's going to be close. In the next few days, I am asking you to do everything you can to help us get out the vote.

If young people and working people come out to vote in strong numbers today, we can win this election. Let's get this done. No matter where you live, make sure you vote. And while you’re at it, bring two or three of your friends or family members to the polls as well.

Let me congratulate @SummerForPA  on her resounding victory in Pennsylvania's 12th District. Summer ran a great campaign and withstood an onslaught of outside money from billionaires. She will be a great congresswoman for the working class.

It is beyond belief that in the year 2022 rail workers in America have zero guaranteed paid sick days. Zero. The rail industry, which made a record-breaking $20 billion in profits last year, must come to the table and negotiate a contract which treats their workers with respect.

In 2016, when Trump won PA, MI, and WI by a handful of votes, the election system worked just great. Now that he's losing, it's a "fraud" and they're "stealing the election." This is how demagogues destroy faith in democracy and move us toward authoritarianism. Count every vote!

Cancel student debt. All of it.

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

All of a sudden Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are worried that someone in America might get a $2,000 check "who doesn't need it." Funny. They had no problem giving a $1.4 billion tax break to Charles Koch and his family with a net worth of $113 billion. What hypocrisy!

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

Legalize marijuana. Expunge past marijuana convictions. End the failed War on Drugs.
