400,000 Americans have died from COVID. There is no issue more urgent than defeating this pandemic, and the Senate Democratic majority will immediately set to work on that goal.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood for inclusion and justice for all. By ceaselessly working against the worst impulses in our country, he inspired the better angels of our nature. We honor his legacy by continuing his work against poverty and racial inequality. #MLKDay 

From a violent insurrection to countless attempts to suppress votes: Attacks on democracy have come in many forms. The first bill the @SenateDems  majority will introduce will be the #ForThePeople  Act to renew democracy, end big money in politics, and tackle corruption. #S1 

Rioters, insurrectionists, white supremacists, and domestic terrorists tried to prevent this transfer of power. They have failed. Tomorrow, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States.

The Senate must hold Donald Trump accountable for the most serious charge ever levied against a president: The incitement of an insurrection against the United States. This severest offense must be met with impeachment, conviction, and disbarment from future office.

Comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship is one of the most important things a Democratic Congress can do. I’m proud @PresElectBiden  crafted a proposal. I look forward to working with him to get comprehensive immigration reform signed into law.

Joe Biden will be President of the United States today. Kamala Harris will be Vice President of the United States today.


What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by President Trump. This president must not hold office one day longer.

Hey @SenTedCruz  and his gang: You want to investigate election fraud? Start with this:

The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.

One of the reasons industries are so short on cash right now is that they have spent billions buying back their own stocks instead of investing in their workers and saving for a rainy day. That needs to be addressed NOW.

We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for COVID, and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well. It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with a hearing, and there is absolutely no good reason to do so.

Republicans are saying they are being barred from the “secret” hearings. But here’s a list of every Republican who is allowed into the hearings:
