Chag Sameach to all who are celebrating Yom Kippur in Milwaukee and around the globe!   May you have an easy fast and a blessed holy day.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a day forever etched into our nation's memory. On this day, let us honor the lives lost and the brave first responders who put their safety on the line to help others. We will #NeverForget .

27 years ago, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was made law. This legislation made transformative changes to how our country responds to domestic and sexual violence. @PresElectBiden ’s leadership made VAWA possible.

Now, it's time for Senate Republicans to support the House-passed VAWA to build upon the protections survivors need to stay safe, housed, and supported.

Tune in now to watch my @WaysMeansCmte  colleagues and I continue marking up the Build Back Better Act. ⤵️

We are discussing measures to: ☀️ Combat the climate crisis 💻 Create jobs 👪 Extend tax cuts for workers & families 🩺 Lower health care costs and more.

Build Back Better is about reopening the pathways to the American Dream and upward mobility. Trickle down economics has failed Americans. And the claim that we’re broke is a broke lie! In fact, we can’t afford to not pass this 21st century package!

Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children’s Defense Fund, has been a lifelong champion for children. I’m thinking of this memory from five yrs ago as the @WaysMeansCmte  finished marking up the Build Back Better Act, which boldly fights child poverty w/the Child Tax Credit.

A woman is dead! The U.S. Capitol is under siege. Peaceful transfer of power has been disrupted. Trump has incited this chaos & violence. The 25th amendment must be invoked. If not, Congress must impeach & convict Trump. 13 days is far too long for Trump to remain in office.

156 years ago on June 19, the announcement of the end of the Civil War & slavery reached Galveston, TX. Since then, this day represents freedom for African-Americans. Today, we're celebrating that freedom by sending a House-passed bill to make #Juneteenth  a holiday to @PresElectBiden .

I tested positive for COVID-19. I am following guidance from my doctor and am isolating from others. I am thankful to be feeling well. And I do not foresee this disrupting my work for Wisconsin’s Fourth.

The same police department who shot an unarmed black man 7 times in the back for walking away from them just let an armed white supremacist walk right past them after shooting people. See the problem?

The Senate GOP is more concerned with filling a SCOTUS seat less than 2 months before an election than passing a COVID relief package. Their priority isn’t the American people.

If it’s safe for people to go to work, why are Republicans pushing to immunize businesses from liability?

There’s not a worker shortage, there’s a shortage of jobs that provide a living wage and access to decent, affordable childcare.
