The Supreme Court's decision striking down a commonsense gun safety law puts more lives at risk. Amidst our Nation’s epidemic of gun violence and the recent string of horrific mass shootings, this reckless decision highlights the immediate need to pass the Safer Communities Act.

The Aston Township Fire Department in Delaware County is receiving federal funding to help recruit and retain more firefighters and emergency responders. #PAMapSpotlight

BREAKING: The Finance Committee just included my ABLE Age Adjustment Act in the retirement bill headed to the full Senate. It would enable millions more adults with disabilities to open ABLE accounts to save for long-term care without losing federal benefits.

#TitleIX is a cornerstone of federal law protecting students from discrimination based on sex as well as from sexual harassment and assault. For 50 years, it’s opened doors for generations of women through education. #TitleIX5050 

But there is still so much work to be done to uphold and build on the progress we’ve made over the past 50 years. I applaud @SecCardona  for working to undo the damage Secretary DeVos did by restoring #TitleIX  protections for sexual assault survivors. #TitleIX50  50

Corporations shouldn’t be able to write off anti-union activities from their taxes. My #NoTaxBreaksForUnionBusting  Act would put an end to this.

Americans deserve to feel safe in their schools, grocery stores, synagogues, churches & communities. Getting this bill to @POTUS  's desk & signed into law as quickly as possible will save lives. It's a long overdue first step toward ending our Nation's epidemic of gun violence.

Today’s decision upends almost a half century of legal precedent and rips away a constitutional right that generations of women have known their entire lives. This dangerous ruling won’t end abortions in this country, but it will put women’s lives at risk.

And make no mistake—this is not the end goal, it’s just the beginning. Republicans in Congress want to pass federal legislation to completely ban abortion. Our daughters and granddaughters should not grow up with fewer rights than their mothers.

Right now in America, it is easier to get an AR-15 than a test kit for COVID-19.

The GOP's so-called "Rescue America" agenda would raise taxes for 75% of those earning under $55,000 annually. 99.9% of households earning under $28,000 would see a tax hike. Meanwhile, more corporations would pay $0 in income taxes.

I’m proud of what the accomplished this year. I’m skipping this political stunt at the White House and just invited the Eagles to Congress. How about a tour of the Capitol?

This is Nixonian. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein must immediately appoint a special prosecutor to continue the Trump/Russia investigation.

Why is the state-sponsored news agency of Putin’s regime, which kills journalists, given access to Oval Office meeting over US journalists?

This means insurance companies are no longer required to cover things like maternity care and emergency services. This will effect everyone.

To be perfectly clear: The is admitting to a room full of CEOs that in order to make their corporate tax cuts permanent, Senate Republicans will gladly take health care away from 13 million people.

Going through this disaster of a 'health care' plan now.

. and Congressional Republicans must stop their partisan attacks on our law enforcement. FBI agents risk their lives for us; the continued attacks by the President and Congressional Rs are outrageous.

No wonder @SenateGOP  was hiding this bill. It's a terrible scheme that will devastate the middle class. Let's go to the text
