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.

Pharma giant @GileadSciences  lies and cheats, then asks the government for tens of billions of dollars in monopoly profits. @Ocasio2018  and I dema @usptod  that reject Gilead's endless greed. No one with HIV should have to die because they can't afford treatment.

As a young person, I protested the Vietnam war. Americans were lied to and sent to die. After 18 years of lies and $1 trillion of war in Afghanistan, we are in the same place. We must end this war and build a society that stops this from happening again.

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.

Once the House proceeds to impeachment, Leader McConnell must quickly schedule a full trial in the Senate, where I will uphold my constitutional responsibility as a juror.

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.

It is too late for us to carry on with establishment politics and establishment economics. This is not my opinion—it is just a scientific reality.

Mr. Trump and the GOP passed a tax scam two years ago. They said it would create jobs and boost wages. Big surprise: none of that happened—but who got richer? Their millionaire and billionaire donors.

President Trump, you made a big mistake. By trying to divide us up by race, religion, gender and nationality you actually brought us closer.

@realDonaldTrump , you are embarrassing our country and the millions of Americans who fought and died to defeat Nazism.

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.

No Mr. President, providing health care to every man, woman and child as a right is not a curse, it's exactly what we should be doing.

The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville  is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society.

Remember: our "crazy idea" of universal health care is a reality in: Australia Austria Belgium Canada Chile Czech Rep. Denmark Finland France Germany Greece Hungary Iceland Israel Italy Japan Netherlands New Zealand Norway Poland Portugal S. Korea Spain Sweden Switz. Turkey U.K.
