Official Twitter account of U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, proudly working for the people of Connecticut.
Trump & his admin slammed the door in the face of women fleeing ruthless violence, LGBTQ+ refugees escaping persecution, & thousands of others seeking safety in the US. It was right & necessary for AG Garland to reverse these brutal, shameful decisions.
Reproductive rights & abortion access are deeply & dangerously threatened. We’ve had enough meddling between Americans & their health care decisions. We’ve had enough shameful attack on people’s freedoms & futures. The time is now for the Women’s Health Protection Act.
So many memories are made here at Toad’s Place in New Haven & other music venues across CT. After a year of having their doors shuttered, I was proud to be with @rosadelauro & the owner of Toad’s Place, Brian Phelps, to announce a federal funding grant to help them reopen.
Thanks to the dedicated volunteers & staff of the Red Cross who worked diligently throughout the pandemic to maintain blood supplies. Nationwide we are facing a blood shortage—now more than ever if you can donate, each donation can save three lives.
CDC may accommodate a dangerous politically driven court decision by rewriting some details, but must retain key safety protections. Vaccinations are vital. So are COVID tests & other steps. Cruise ships may again become deadly Petri dishes of disease without them.
Shocked & appalled—I just left a 90 minute classified briefing on foreign malign threats to our elections. From spying to sabotage, Americans need to see & hear these reports.
This morning’s classified coronavirus briefing should have been made fully open to the American people—they would be as appalled & astonished as I am by the inadequacy of preparedness & prevention.
