Had a great discussion with local leaders & advocates @Seattle_Housing’s Epstein Opportunity Center today about the innovative work happening in Seattle to bring together school districts, housing authorities, & social service organizations to tackle child & family homelessness.

Henry, Natasha, Jason, Lisa, Giuseppina, Stefanie, & Jasper are just a handful of the millions of patients @SenateDems  are standing with in the fight to #ProtectOurCare  from Republicans' partisan attacks. Read & help share their stories.

What do raising the minimum wage to $15/hour, ensuring paycheck fairness, protecting patients with pre-ex conditions, stopping gun violence, & reversing health care sabotage have in common? They're all bipartisan House-passed bills in @senatemajldr 's legislative graveyard.

Tens of thousands of Americans with disabilities being denied loan discharges they need and are eligible for is unacceptable. The Department of Education can & should solve this problem—and I will continue to hold them accountable until they do.

The Trump-Pence Administration's harmful #TitleX  gag rule is putting health care out of reach for women and families across the country—all because politicians think their ideological views are more important. We must keep fighting to #ProtectX .

On this day in 1941, our nation was forever changed. We must never forget the sacrifices of those we lost at Pearl Harbor, and we must honor the great service of the brave servicemembers who fought to protect our freedoms in World War II. #PearlHarbor78 

We must put a check on President Trump’s abuse of executive power—plain & simple.   I introduced legislation to return the stolen money the President took from the military for his border wall & create safeguards to ensure no president can do this in the future.

Reauthorizing #VAWA  tells survivors of domestic violence that we're with them, we support them, and we will help them gain their independence and seek justice.

Today, 52 Senate Republicans went on the record against affordable health care and protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Today, 52 Senate Republicans voted against patients and families. Don't forget.

My legislation would return the stolen military construction funds President Trump raided for his border wall back to their original projects, and ensure no future president can fund their pet projects on the backs of our military. Our women and men in uniform deserve better.

RT if you think Senators shouldn't be cut off after just 5 minutes of questions: #DeVos

During our first day back in session, @senatemajldr  should call for a vote on House-passed, bipartisan universal background checks legislation. RT if you agree.

This is about Roe. This is about health care. This is about our environment. This is about our democracy & the rights & freedoms of millions of people in WA & across the nation… It’s all on the line. Raise your voice. #StopKavanaugh .

The National Archives says it needs more time to produce Judge Kavanaugh’s records so the public can have a full picture of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. People and families deserve to know about Judge Kavanaugh’s complete record. Keep making your voices heard.

Justice Kavanaugh has started attacking Roe v. Wade from the bench—& that means women & men who believe women should have access to safe, legal abortion must stand up stronger than ever for women’s constitutionally protected health care rights. I’m ready & I hope you are too.
