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.

New York City’s school buses will be electric by 2035. This is a HUGE victory for our communities and planet. Senate Dems are working to pass our Build Back Better legislation including my Clean Cars for America initiative to combat the climate crisis.

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.

We just held a critical vote to advance Myrna Pérez’s nomination to the 2nd Circuit and set up her confirmation vote for Monday I championed her to @PresElectBiden  She's an accomplished attorney, a voting rights and elections expert And she’ll be the only Latina serving on this court

Latinas earn just 57 cents for every $1 earned by white men. And it would take them until today to catch up to what white men made at the end of last year. @SenateDems  will continue working to secure paycheck fairness for Latinas and their families. #LatinaEqualPayDay 

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!

If President Trump doesn’t like Twitter, he can do everyone a favor and stop tweeting.

What Senate Republicans BLOCKED last week —Rental assistance —Food assistance —Funding for COVID testing & tracing —Protections for workers —Protections for Dreamers —Resources for elections —Resources for schools & nursing homes —Resources for state & local governments & tribes

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.

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

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.

We voted no on the McConnell-GOP bill because among other problems it includes huge bailouts without protections for people and workers and without accountability, and because it shortchanges our hospitals and healthcare workers who need our help. These changes need to be made.
