Representing the people from the Great State of Michigan in the United States Senate
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:
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.
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 !
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
