@SummerForPA  understands that health care is a right not a privilege, that a $7.25 federal minimum wage is a starvation wage, and that we need members of Congress who've got the guts to stand up and fight for working families. Pittsburgh, tomorrow, get out and VOTE!

If Howard Schultz wants a photo-op with the President so badly, maybe, just maybe, he ought to obey the law, end the union busting at Starbucks, stop firing workers for being pro-union and negotiate a first contract with union workers that is fair and that is just.

Cancel student debt. All of it.

It is outrageous that in the year 2022 we are talking about the government saying to women that they cannot have the choice about what they can do with their own bodies.

With very few exceptions, @daveweigel  being one of them, nobody in the mainstream media is covering the major story of this primary season and that is how billionaires, through AIPAC, are spending millions to defeat progressive candidates.

As a worker, you deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. What does that mean? It means being able to have a life outside of your job. It means decent wages. It means health care that you can actually afford to use. That's what Starbucks workers' struggle is all about.

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.

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

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!
