U.S. Senator from New York

Latest Scoops

I think every one of my Republican colleagues in Congress, as well as the President, should be required to read this gut-wrenching story. Then maybe they’d finally do something to stop the real national emergency of gun violence.
If we want to talk about strengthening our economy, we have to start with investing in education — especially STEM infrastructure, job training and supporting our public schools and teachers.
Student debt is at a crisis level in this country, and it holds our whole economy down. One of the first things I'd do as president is allow all students to refinance their loans at 4%. The federal government shouldn't be making money off the backs of our students, period.
Declaring a national emergency over a racist and ridiculous campaign promise is already an outrageous abuse of power—but diverting funds from natural disaster victims is abhorrent. Not on our watch.
Hi Iowa! I'm so excited to be back again. I'm teaming up with @nowthisnews and @ProgressIowa to host a special living room conversation with caucus goers in Cedar Rapids today. We'll be streaming live this afternoon - hope you can join us! Tune in here:
I've said since day one that I'm running because as a mom of young kids, I think we need a president who fights for families as if they were her own. A president who leads with compassion, not ego. I think it's time we had a mom in the Oval Office.
I'm not a candidate who happens to be a mom; being a mom is a big part of what I'm running for. Every decision we make as a country now affects the next generations—we can't let those decisions be made by people who care about profits more than families.
Not a controversial idea: If the C-suite executive gets paid family leave, then the factory floor worker should also get paid family leave.
An important part of my campaign is meeting voters in as many diners as I possibly can. Delicious morning in Lebanon, NH!

The Most Relevant

You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office.
Trump ordered the end of DACA and TPS. Then he shut down the government. Now he’s holding federal workers hostage, saying he'll temporarily give back what he took away—only if we give him a pointless, ineffective wall he falsely promised Mexico would pay for. This is a bad deal.
.@SenateMajLdr has scheduled a vote today. No, it’s not to reopen the government and begin paying 800,000 federal workers who’ve gone without pay for 27 days. It’s to restrict reproductive health care coverage. Unbelievable.

Stop attacking women. Open the government.
We can’t let Trump’s right-wing nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, take a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court. I still need 548 more people to join me in speaking out before 11:59 p.m. tonight: Tell the Senate to reject Trump’s nominee!
President Trump should resign. But, of course, he won't hold himself accountable. Therefore, Congress should investigate the multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations against him.
Some great news: We need just one more vote, from one more Senator, to have enough votes to reverse the Trump administration’s #NetNeutrality repeal. Keeping our internet free and open to everyone could not be more important. Contact your Senators today!
Women are a force to be reckoned with. We won’t be silenced.
Any senator who votes to confirm Judge Kavanaugh after Dr. Ford’s testimony is telling our country exactly this: the experiences of women don’t matter. Their trauma doesn’t matter. Their stories and their voices don’t matter.
Take at his word. He wants to “punish” women for exercising their reproductive freedom. He promised to nominate to SCOTUS someone who would “automatically” overturn Roe v. Wade. We need to fight like women’s lives and freedom are on the line. Because they are.

President Trump seems not to understand that the female jobs he created were Democratic women in Congress.
