More than a decade ago, advocates for working people warned that the WTO and unfettered free trade agreements would lead to the loss of millions of good-paying American jobs. Guess what? We were right.

This is called oligarchy: government of, by, and for the billionaire class.

On #CyberMonday , shoppers will rely on the U.S. Postal Service for fast, reliable, and affordable shipping. But Mr. Trump wants to privatize and destroy it. These good-paying unionized jobs lifted families like @mrdannyglover 's into the middle class—we must protect them.

Who is helping keep Saudi Arabia’s warplanes in the air as they bomb Yemen—where children are dying of hunger in the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet? The United States of America. That has got to stop.

We take from the poor, we give to the rich: this is the philosophy of the modern Republican party.

The average interest rate for a payday loan in Utah? 652%. 70-year-old Vietnam veterans are being jailed for not being able to keep up. The Loan Shark Prevention Act, from @Ocasio2018  and I, would put an end this disgusting greed.

Did you know we once had a Republican president who expanded Social Security? Maybe today's Republicans should listen to what he had to say about the program, instead of trying to destroy it.

A greedy drug company deprives Americans of lifesaving HIV medicine, lies about it, then has the audacity to ask for a monopoly to make billions more in profit. What a disgrace. I applaud the grassroots activists opposing this obscene corporate giveaway.

@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.
