Official account of Senator Chuck Schumer - New York’s Senator RT≠endorsement
The fight to protect our democracy is far from over in the United States Senate. As soon as next week, I am prepared to bring the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to the floor.
The Senate needs to be restored to its rightful status as the world’s greatest deliberative body. After the Civil War, Congress passed the 14th and 15th Amendments without a single vote from the minority party. It wasn’t partisan—it was patriotic. Today, we feel the same.
Build Back Better will be the greatest investment in the American people, in our economy, and in the fight against climate change that we’ve seen in a long, long time.
I was honored to join Bishop Nelson, @67ClergyCouncil , & more at the ribbon cutting today for Phase One of the Ebenezer Plaza. The affordable housing development will provide additional space for the Ebenezer Urban Ministry Center as well as over 500 units of affordable housing!
