The monthly #ChildTaxCredit  payments are a lifeline for parents who are struggling with the cost of child care. We can make life easier for millions of families by making these changes permanent and investing in #UniversalChildCare  infrastructure.

10 years ago today, the @CFPB  opened its doors to protect consumers and hold big banks and financial institutions accountable. Donald Trump and the GOP tried their best to kill that little agency, but it’s still standing – and it’s here to stay. Happy birthday, CFPB!

As the eviction moratoriums, forbearance protections, and student loan payment pauses end, the @CFPB  has a powerfully important job ahead to protect all Americans, especially Black and Brown consumers facing racial discrimination.

The @CFPB  ’s work is more important than ever right now. If you think you’ve been cheated on a mortgage, credit card, student loan – even just a $5 fee that shouldn’t be there – fill out a complaint. The CFPB is government that works for the people.

Guys like Thomas Barrack and Paul Manafort have exposed some of the corrosive and dangerous ways that foreign governments hide their efforts to influence the US government. I told @JoyAnnReid : that’s one of the many reasons the Senate must pass the #ForThePeople  Act now.

More than two-thirds of federal student loan borrowers say they aren’t ready for payments to resume in October. The student loan companies have told me they’re not ready too. I’m urging President Biden to extend the pause on payments.

Our child care system was already broken before COVID pushed it to the brink of collapse. The numbers don’t add up for families or for child care providers. We need to invest in #UniversalChildCare  infrastructure so every family can get the care they need.

Unions built America’s middle class, and unions will rebuild America’s middle class. The Senate needs to listen to the American people and pass the #PROAct  now to protect and strengthen workers’ right to organize for better pay and working conditions.

A bipartisan group of senators just approved my plan to toughen up ethics at the Pentagon. When @DeptofDefense  officials spin through the revolving door, they'll be banned from working on issues involving their former employer for 4 years, instead of 2.

There are two justice systems in America: one for the rich and powerful, and one for everyone else.

Two Senate Judiciary Committee members tested positive for COVID-19 today. We don't know when we'll know just how many people have been infected. The Senate cannot safely proceed on the Supreme Court nomination. We must focus on containing this virus to protect members and staff.

The violence at the Capitol today was an attempted coup and act of insurrection egged on by a corrupt President to overthrow our democracy.

William Barr is not the President’s lawyer – he is the country’s lawyer. His political interference is blatantly corrupt and he should resign.

It’s time to ban Members of Congress & other senior officials from owning or trading any company stocks while in office. They can put their savings in conflict-free investments like mutual funds, or they can pick a different line of work. #EndCorruptionNow 

Trump told states they were on their own to purchase medical equipment, so that’s what MA tried to do. But then the federal government outbid MA at least 3 times – and reports show two of our orders were seized by federal authorities. This is unacceptable.

I thought we’d already covered this after the attacks in Lafayette Square: the US government should not be using unidentified federal officers as a secret police force to terrorize US citizens & violate their constitutional rights. This is outrageous.
