The Senate just passed COVID relief.   ✔️ $1,400 relief checks. ✔️ Funding for vaccines. ✔️ Money to reopen schools. ✔️ Food, unemployment, and rental assistance. ✔️ Cutting child poverty in half. ✔️ Help for small businesses.   We must end this pandemic. And help is on the way.

Some say that the remedy of impeachment is flawed, an unworkable mistake of the founders.   That’s nonsense.   There is nothing wrong with the Constitution, its draftsmanship, or the oath.   Only with those who need uphold it.   The fault lies not in our laws, but in ourselves.

Senators arguing against raising the minimum wage make $174,000 a year.   The minimum wage is now $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year.   That’s not a living wage. Raising it to $15 will lift millions out of poverty.   Americans don’t care how it gets done, just that we do it. ASAP.

H.R. 1 will: 🗳Expand automatic & same day voter registration, vote by mail & early voting. Stop partisan gerrymandering. Protect elections from foreign interference. 💰Reign in dark money & special interests. ⚖️Enforce ethics rules for officials. We must protect our democracy.

I'm proud to be an original cosponsor of Medicare for All.   Healthcare is a human right: ✔️Universal coverage. ✔️Lower costs. ✔️No barriers to treatment.   No matter who you are. No matter what you do for work. No matter what you can afford.   It's time for #MedicareForAll .

Sandy Hook. Parkland. El Paso. Orlando. Las Vegas. Atlanta. Boulder. This awful list keeps growing. No more. We must act: Universal background checks. Ban assault weapons & extended clips. And more. We have the power. Not the NRA. So let’s act. Before another tragedy strikes.

The NRA will fight tooth and nail to preserve the gun industry’s unjustifiable legal immunity.   But we don’t have to let them win.   I have a bill to end this obscene liability shield—that no other industry enjoys—so gun violence victims get their day in court.   Let's act. Now.

Some of the troops who are serving in Afghanistan today were not yet born on 9/11. And after 20 years of war, of death and of loss, a continued military presence there is no longer in our best interest. This decision isn’t without risk, but it's the right one.

The Russia sanctions confirm what we've long known: Trump’s campaign chairman shared internal polling data and strategy with Konstantin Kilimnik - who shared it with Russian intelligence. While Russia was helping Trump’s campaign. So much for the “no collusion” crowd.

Donald Trump must be convicted and removed from office. Because he will always choose his own personal interest over our national interest. Because in America, right matters. Truth matters. If not, no Constitution can protect us. If not, we are lost.

Mr. President, I see you’ve had a busy morning of “Executive Time.” Instead of tweeting false smears, the American people would appreciate it if you turned off the TV and helped solve the funding crisis, protected Dreamers or...really anything else.

After listening to the President’s lawyers opening arguments, I have three observations: They don’t contest the facts of Trump’s scheme. They’re trying to deflect, distract from, and distort the truth. And they are continuing to cover it up by blocking documents and witnesses.

The U.S. government is finally open again. RT if you think Congress should pass legislation to prevent future shutdowns.
