U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the longest-serving independent in congressional history.
My friend @RepRoKhanna is right: it is Orwellian for Congress to hand over billions of dollars worth of weapons and bombs to a president waging a horrific, unconstitutional war in Yemen—and call that progressive.
Congress must vote against this disastrous Pentagon authorization—a bill of astonishing moral cowardice. We do not need to shower Trump, his Saudi friends and the military-industrial complex with a $738-billion taxpayer giveaway.
Think about all of the intellectual and emotional damage we do because we ignore the needs of our children. Under my legislation with @Ilhan , we invest in our young people, we nurture them, and we make sure all of our kids get free school meals.
Look around at the big-money interests spending millions of dollars on ads to confuse the American people. How will we beat them? Through the efforts of Medicare for All champions like @RepJayapal and @NationalNurses’ Jean Ross. This is how we make health care a human right.
President Trump, you made a big mistake. By trying to divide us up by race, religion, gender and nationality you actually brought us closer.
This is an egregious attack on our democracy. The end of #NetNeutrality protections means that the internet will be for sale to the highest bidder. When our democratic institutions are already in peril, we must do everything we can to stop this decision from taking effect.
The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society.
