Taxing Americans, sometimes tens of thousands of dollars, who are grieving the death of a child or adjusting to a life-changing disability is simply unconscionable.

I am deeply concerned that President Trump is putting forward nominees for critical judgeships who are demonstrably unqualified. The cases that come before the courts are too important to tolerate bias, prejudice, incompetence, or inexperience. #CourtsMatter

Terrific news this morning about @FreeXiyueWang , who was released from Evin prison after being held by Iran for 3 years. My hope is that the US and other countries around the world can soon welcome home all those wrongfully detained in Iran.

On Dec. 7, 1941, at the attack on Pearl Harbor, Gunner’s Mate 1st Class Paul Gustavus Gosnell, of Wilmington, Delaware, was killed in action on the @USNavy  destroyer USS Shaw. Paul, who had served as a #devildog  in @USMC , is buried in Baltimore Nat’l Cemetery. #PearlHarbor78

I’ve been hearing and claiming that ‘collusion is not a crime.’ Well, I took the liberty of reading the U.S. code myself. Here’s what the law actually says:

Republicans have hired an outside attorney to grill Dr. Ford, they’ve scheduled a vote on Judge Kavanaugh for Friday AM (the day after this hearing), and they’re limiting questions to 1 round of 5 min Qs Does that sound like they’re taking this seriously to you? Me neither.

I am heartbroken by what I’m witnessing at the Southern border today. I asked this young boy if he has been able to brush his teeth in the American holding facility. He replied: “No.” We are better than this. We have to be better than this.

Does this seem like a legitimate process for vetting someone for a lifetime Supreme Court seat to you? Me neither.

If the Senate passes a bill in the middle of the night, before anyone can read it, to completely re-write the entire US tax code, that's a pretty good indication of what's in it.

RT if you think we shouldn't re-write America's tax code in the middle of the night with...this.

Just an idea re: tax reform: Scrap this mess. Start over. Work together. Hold hearings. Listen to experts. Pass real, deficit neutral, pro-growth, pro-middle class tax reform. Just an idea.
