I’m holding all Oregonians and our state in my prayers today as we mark this grim anniversary.
Late last night, every House Republican voted against $1,400 checks, money to reopen schools, and funding to accelerate vaccines. Luckily, the bill narrowly passed despite this obstruction, and I'm ready to work to get it to the President's desk as quickly as possible.

Authoritarian governments, not democratic republics, send unmarked authorities after protesters. These Trump/Barr tactics designed to eliminate any accountability are absolutely unacceptable in America, and must end.
Electoral college ballots rescued from the Senate floor. If our capable floor staff hadn’t grabbed them, they would have been burned by the mob.
I was barred entry. Asked repeatedly to speak to a supervisor—he finally came out and said he can’t tell us anything. Police were called on us. Children should never be ripped from their families & held in secretive detention centers. RT if you agree this is WRONG.
@realDonaldTrump : Get your DHS lackey and uninvited paramilitary actions out of my state. Our communities are not a stage for your twisted reelection campaign.
I asked the senior senator from Texas to come to the floor and explain his Wall Street Welfare amendment that lets giant hedge funds be taxed like small businesses. Still waiting. RT if you want him to come to the floor.
I just left the tent city at Tornillo. It is a child prison camp. They refused our request to speak with the children who are held there.
Summary of our letter to Barr and Wolf: Your authoritarian police state is not welcome here. Get out of Oregon.
These are tweets that the new Admin has already deleted. RT if you believe in science and oppose Trump's gag order on climate facts!
