U.S. Senator from Vermont and candidate for President of the United States.
TOMORROW: The corporate media has done a pretty poor job covering the reconciliation legislation, which has left a lot of working people asking, 'What's in the damn bill?' Join me, @Ocasi @RevDrBarbero @MaryKayHenry01 @VarshPrakash8, , @alaw202 , and tomorrow for a panel discussion.
John Deere's profits have exploded by some 67%, but workers who spent years with the company are now being forced off their insurance. That is beyond outrageous. John Deere is a hugely profitable company, and workers must be allowed to keep their health care during the strike.
TONIGHT: Polls show a majority of the American people support the policies in our reconciliation bill, but too many don't know they're actually in the bill! Tonight, @Ocasi @RevDrBarbero @MaryKayHenry01 @VarshPrakash8, , @alaw202 , and join me to discuss. I hope you'll join us.
"[Corporate lobbyists] want YOU to give up before the deal is done, because it's way easier for them to try to get away with the things that they're lobbying for and against if people at home aren't watching." - @Ocasio2018 on the need to stay engaged in the fight for this bill
"The truly radical thing to do on climate would be to do nothing." - @VarshPrakash
The average billionaire in America today has a lower tax rate than the average worker. Does that seem acceptable to you?
JOIN OUR PANEL: We are proposing historic legislation which says you know what? Maybe we should finally invest in the needs of working people. Join us for a special rebroadcast of our panel discussion, 'What's In The Damn Bill?.'
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!
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.
Some people ask: Why would you impeach and convict a president who has only a few days left in office? The answer: Precedent. It must be made clear that no president, now or in the future, can lead an insurrection against the U.S. government.
