Ahead of the #SOTU  tonight, I recorded a video with my guest Andrea to discuss the #StateofHealthCare . WATCH:

Read my statement on tonight’s State of the Union: #SOTU2020

With the nation watching, @gretchenwhitmer  delivered an exce #SOTUlent  response. Proud of our Governor for focusing on the priorities that matter to families in Michigan and across the cou #SOTU2020try . 2020

Today was a serious moment in our nation’s history. I am concerned that the message being sent is that this President, and future Presidents, are above the law. That, of course, is the opposite of what should be true in our democracy. My full statement:

Great to join my friend @algore  at #FosterOurFuture2020  to discuss how agriculture is one of the most promising solutions to the #ClimateCrisis .

While I have family rooting for both sides, I've got a good feeling that my Spartans will go on the road and #BeatMichigan  today! #GoGreen 

The President promised to take care of the Great Lakes, but included no funding to move forward with the Brandon Road project, a critical choke point to stop Asian carp from entering the Lakes. The #TrumpBudget  fails our MI test for what's important.

Henry is a nine-year-old in MI living with a number of pre-existing conditions. I pressed @SecAzar  on why the #TrumpBudget  does nothing to protect kids like Henry. Instead of taking care of families, the budget guts Medicare, Medicaid, and other health care funding.

Last week, @SenateDems  brought seven bills to the floor that would secure our elections from foreign interference and protect your vote. Senate Republicans blocked all seven! It is long past time @senatemajldr  gets serious about the future of our democracy.

Leader McConnell has been wasting time all year by shutting down the United States Senate. 90% of the 300+ House-passed bills stuck in his legislative graveyard are bipartisan!

I strongly support bringing jobs home. The President should start by closing his own foreign factories.

We have to let Republicans know: 135 million Americans with pre-existing conditions - including more than half the families in Michigan - can't afford to lose their health care. My friend @morethanmySLE  joins me to discuss how to #ProtectOurCare !

This is a power grab, clear and simple. It goes against the will of people who made their voices heard at the voting booth 30 days ago.

You only have until December 15th to sign up for health care through Open Enrollment. Thank you to my friend Peter Morley for being such a passionate voice for those with pre-existing conditions and sharing why it’s so important to #GetCovered ! @morethanmySLE 

We’re going to need The Force to get these bills through Mitch McConnell’s legislative graveyard.
