It was an honor to be with @FrankMBTC and the Massachusetts Building Trades Council today. You all in the Building Trades are the heart of America’s labor movement and the kind of champions our working families in Massachusetts need and deserve. Thank you for all of your work.

“The spread of the $93 trillion figure is a textbook example of how the right-wing media sphere disseminates misinformation to stymie climate action.”

The right-wing will keep spreading misinformation about the #GreenNewDeal. Don’t buy it for a second.

The Green New Deal resolution identifies the threat of climate change, sets goals to effectively fight it, and identifies principles that must guide our action. Energy efficiency, 100% clean, renewable energy, environmental justice.

I’m w/ women’s health & community leaders at Planned Parenthood in Boston to oppose Trump’s new rule that would “gag” health care providers at nearly 4,000 #TitleX-funded centers from informing patients about how to access safe, legal abortion care. WATCH: https://t.co/7BGA7TFHRY

To attack the innocent and the faithful in their house of worship is the ultimate act of hate. We condemn this anti-Muslim act of barbarism.

But amidst this bloodshed and outrage, we must recommit ourselves to the long-held values and pursuits that we know as a country are true.

The FCC is proposing rules changes that would likely shut down public, educational, & government access stations across the country. We need to be raising up smaller voices, not further hollowing community media.

@FCC: don’t pull the plug on community TV.

Aircraft with such consequential safety deficiencies like the Boeing 737 MAX 8 & 9 should not be certified without appropriate fixes, including additional pilot training. I commend the DOT for investigating this process.

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.

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.

Chairman Grassley unilaterally deemed #Kavanaugh records “Committee Confidential.” Penalty for release could include “expulsion” from the Senate, which hasn’t happened since the Civil War, for disloyalty to the Union. GOP is going that far to keep them secret. #WhatAreTheyHiding?

I just reviewed the FBI’s #Kavanaugh report. The FBI never interviewed many relevant witnesses. There are also thousands of pages of leads from the tip line that received no follow up. It’s clear the White House only wanted the FBI to go through the motions & that’s what it did.
