During this pandemic, access to affordable care is more important than ever. That is why I just voted to support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act. #LowerCostsforCare 

56 years ago, the #CivilRightsAct  outlawed discrimination and segregation based on race, religion, sex or national origin. But the fight for justice continues. We will not stop until EVERY AMERICAN has full and equal access to their American dream.

Happy 4th of July! Although our barbeques, fireworks and parties will need to look different this year, I hope everyone has a safe and healthy #IndependenceDay ! Through our celebrations, please continue to social distance and wear a mask to keep our community safe.

This decision is a win for women’s reproductive rights, but the fight is not over. We must pass the Women's Health Protection Act and demand that all women have access to affordable, safe, and reliable reproductive care.

This bill will help lower the cost of coverage, encourage remaining states to expand Medicaid, and allow Medicare to negotiate fair prescription drug prices.

Investing in our nation's infrastructure means bringing it into the 21st century. It means modern roads, bridges, & transit systems. It means investments to combat #ClimateChange  & expand broadband access. The #MovingForward  Act is a promise of a better future for all Americans.

In May, I pressed the SBA to be more transparent about companies receiving PPP loans, & today the administration publicly released some data. This initial information only reinforces the need for additional data & more strict Congressional oversight.

Today, we wear suffragette white to send a strong message that we are fighting #ForThePeople  and advancing women’s rights. #WomenUnited

Seniors have a lot to lose if Speaker Ryan’s devastating #BillionairesFirst  tax plan becomes law.

Baby Boomers will be turning 80 about the same time that #Trumpcare 's Medicaid cuts kick in. Our seniors can't afford it.

GOP can try to hide from the truth, but 2/3 of Americans want us to fight for more affordable care, not surrender & #MakeAmericaSickAgain .

2/ We all deserve clean air to breathe, but unfortunately, @realDonaldTrump  and @EPAScottPruitt  would rather lower air standards and increase rates of sickness in all fifty states. Let's dem #CleanerCarsand  and cleaner air.

1/ From Day 1, Trump made it clear that CA’s waiver authority under the Clean Air Act was enemy number 1, and they have spitefully done everything in their power to end this critical protection for CA, 12 other states, and DC.

My constituents in Sacramento overwhelmingly oppose the disastrous #Trumpcare  bill. Emails/Calls/Letters so far: Oppose: 1,598 Support: 54

Pres.Trump took away your internet privacy rights. Now he plans to gut #NetNeutrality . We must protect the open internet.

@realDonaldTrump  @EPAScottPruitt3 / Make no mistake; the California waiver creates jobs, saves consumers money at the pump, and keeps families healthier. Revoking our waiver erodes those goals and cedes U.S. leadership in auto manufacturing, and I believe we are better than that.

The facts are clear. Trump violated his oath by withholding taxpayer funds in exchange for dirt on a political rival. He continues to invite foreign powers to violate our sovereignty. These are impeachable acts and a clear danger to our nation. We must act to #DefendOurDemocracy .
