U.S. Senator from Connecticut.
I will look at the intel when I get back to DC this afternoon. But if Iran was involved, it is as unacceptable as it is predictable. Trump’s Iran strategy has been blind unilateral escalation. No off ramps. No international consensus building.
Heading to the floor now to talk about the need for the Senate to act on gun violence. We need universal background checks. We need meaningful action on gun violence. We need a debate. And we need a vote.
97% of Americans believe that you should have to pass a background check before you buy a gun. RT if you're one of them.
19 out of 20 murderers have no mental illness diagnosis. 4 out of 5 mass shooters have no mental illness diagnosis, and half showed no signs on a prior, undiagnosed illness. Framing this as just a mental illness problem is a gun industry trope. Period. Stop.
It's worth asking why we spend $600 billion a year on the military if we can't get more than 5000 troops and 50 helicopters to Puerto Rico.
Trump said yesterday no one cares about his tax returns. @RonWyden & I have a bill requiring their release. Retweet this if you agree w us.
