It’s heartbreaking to wake up to news of yet another mass shooting in the United States. This time it was at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, leaving eight dead and seven injured. My sympathy is with the victims, their families and their coworkers.

Existing inequalities in health care have grown even worse. That’s why I’m cosponsoring this bill – to create an affordable, high-quality health insurance option managed by the government. It would guarantee access to care, lower costs and allow HHS to negotiate drug prices.

Gun silencers and suppressors are dangerous and don’t belong in our communities. They hide the sound of gunfire from potential victims and law enforcement. Removing them will save lives.

Gun violence has invaded every aspect of our lives. These shootings have become so prevalent that they seem to happen anywhere: our places of work, our places of worship, grocery stores, concerts, college campuses, even in our children’s schools.

Hundreds of thousands of homeowners who are more than 90 days late on housing payments still haven't taken advantage of financial help. Get more information on how to request forbearance here:

This week I sent a letter to the Treasury Department, encouraging the development of a national outreach strategy to ensure every struggling homeowner can access available federal relief. We need to ensure that this relief doesn’t go unused.

Next week is #NationalParkWeek . That means free entrance to all national parks tomorrow. If you can do so safely, get outside and enjoy the beauty of California’s nine national parks and all our other protected lands.

UPDATE: Republicans rejected our motion to adjourn until Monday so senators could read the bill they just introduced. RT If you think senators should have time to read a bill that affects every single American.

UPDATE: 43 senators now support our bill to bar children from being taken from their parents at the border. We still need a Republican senator to join. If you’re represented by a Republican senator, please ask them to cosponsor S.3036. #FamiliesBelongTogether
