.@billmckibben, a fellow Vermonter, is a great environmental leader. He is an outstanding writer and organizer. Thanks to Bill, and other leading environmentalists, more and more Americans are fighting to save our planet. Thanks, Bill.
Trump and his friends believe in voter suppression and billionaires buying elections.

We want:
✅ Automatic voter registration
✅ The overturn of Citizens United
✅ Election day as a national holiday

History is on our side. We will win this struggle.
The current fight in DC is about more than a wall. It's about whether we are a nation of laws, where the president obeys the Constitution and democratic processes. The American people must inform Trump that we will not become an authoritarian nation.
Donald Trump may not like it, but we are not an authoritarian country. We have a constitution and separation of powers. There is no "national emergency," and Trump cannot build his wall without congressional approval.
The American people, the Congress and the courts must show Trump what the Constitution and separation of powers is about. Trump cannot declare a "national emergency" whenever he wants, and spend money on his pet project. Not gonna happen!
If you paid the $119 annual fee to become an Amazon Prime member, you paid more to Amazon than it paid in taxes.

Our job: Repeal all of the Trump tax breaks for the top 1% and large corporations and demand that they pay their fair share in taxes.
There is not a "national emergency" with regard to the southern border. What President Trump is doing is unlawful and must be opposed vigorously in the courts and legislatively.
The great economic crisis we face is the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality. When so few have so much, and so many have so little, a handful of billionaires end up controlling our economic and political life. That has got to change.
Today we remember the Parkland students and teachers who lost their lives.

Thank you to the young people who have courageously led the movement to end gun violence. With your leadership and the strong support of the American people we will pass commonsense gun safety legislation
Amazon made $16.8 billion in profits over the past two years but have paid ZERO in federal income taxes. In fact it got a $269 million tax refund.

Our job: Demand large corporations pay their fair share in taxes so that we can rebuild the disappearing middle class.

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.
.@realDonaldTrump They did. It wasn't.
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.
If Donald Trump takes people's anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare.
Remember: our "crazy idea" of universal health care is a reality in:

Czech Rep.
New Zealand
S. Korea
The white nationalist demonstration in #Charlottesville is a reprehensible display of racism and hatred that has no place in our society.
If Trump decides to end DACA, it will be one of the ugliest and cruelest decisions ever made by a president in our modern history.
Today in 1922, researchers at the University of Toronto announced the discovery of insulin. They sold the patent for $1 so it would be available to all.

97 years later, Eli Lilly is charging ~$300 and Americans die because they can’t afford their medication. Outrageous.
