When households are struggling to put food on the table, we shouldn't saddle them with egregious student loan payments. We must extend the student loan moratorium, and when President Biden takes office this January, cancel student debt. #CancelStudentDebt 

Stop needless and cruel deportations during the pandemic. Stop terrorizing our immigrant communities.

I’ve just been informed that operations at the Weymouth Compressor Station will be allowed to restart following an investigation into two gas leaks. This project is a threat to public safety, health, and the environment, and I will continue to fight it. #NoWeymouthCompressor 

Michael Flynn is a criminal. Roger Stone is a criminal. Donald Trump is a criminal. None of them deserve to be pardoned.

No one should go hungry today or any day. Here is a list of food resources form @projectbread  for anyone in Massachusetts seeking assistance during the #COVID19  pandemic. Call the FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333 or find help here:

#SmallBusinessSaturday is a moment to respond to the struggles our small businesses are facing and pass a robust relief package that provides the smallest, most vulnerable businesses, including our mom-and-pop stores, with the support they need to make it through. #reliefnow

Amid sky-high passenger complaints and a global COVID pandemic, Trump’s Transportation Dept. is limiting the agency’s authority to protect the flying public from consumer abuses. This outrageous rule must be overturned.

Trump will be gone soon, but families need help now. Let's: -extend unemployment -give $2,000/mo cash until this crisis is over -stop evictions and electricity/water shut-offs -connect all K-12 students to the internet -provide aid to states and cities

We don’t need Ajit Pai throttling progress at the FCC and we don’t need Big Broadband throttling your internet speed for the sake of their profits. Let’s put #netneutrality  protections back on the books and put consumers back in charge at the FCC.

We need to give everyone $2,000 a month until this crisis is over.

Trump says there’s a war on coal iPhones weren't a war on rotary phones, they were a revolution The horseless carriage wasn’t a war on horses, it was a revolution The ice box wasn't a war on salted meats, it was a revolution #cleanenergy  isn't a war on coal, it's a revolution

I will not take a meeting with Brett Kavanaugh. He has been nominated by someone implicated, and all but named as a co-conspirator, in federal crimes. His nomination is tainted and should be considered illegitimate.

Trump’s EPA just ended a key policy under the Clean Air Act. Here are a few of the pollutants you will be breathing more of as a result: Asbestos Arsenic Benzene Chloroform Cyanide Formaldehyde Lead Mercury If you're panicking about this, try to not take a deep breath.

The brave students & activists at #PolyU  represent the future of a democratic #HongKong . America stands with them, not police who are trying to crush this movement on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. We urge no use of lethal force. #StandWithHongKong 

I plan to introduce a Congressional Review Act resolution that would restore the Open Internet Order and reverse the ’s historic mistake of repealing . T #NetNeutralityis  fight is far from over.

Shame on you. I was 4 miles away at another facility on the same day. No one is being dishonest. These border facilities are a national disgrace, with human beings kept in conditions worse than prisons, children sleeping on floors. These facilities have become edifices to hate.

BREAKING: Chairman Grassley has unilaterally ruled 1/3 of the #Kavanaugh  records to be “Committee Confidential” meaning anyone not on Judiciary Committee cannot see them. That’s 79 Senators & the entire American public. It’s an unprecedented level of secrecy. #WhatAreTheyHiding ?

At the ICE facility I visited, I met a woman from Mexico who has lived here for 18 years. She called 911 after her husband brutally beat her. They turned her over to immigration authorities. She now fears deportation. She has 3 kids. There should be no agency with this mission.
