Health care coverage continues to be out of reach for millions, especially for low income families and people of color. I spoke with experts on the historic chance to close the Medicaid coverage gap & expand Medicare to include dental, vision & hearing in #BuildBackBetter .

There can be no reform without accountability. That means disclosure of all trades to this point by Fed officials. All relevant Fed ethics guidance should be released publicly. And independent IG and SEC investigations must be completed promptly and without Fed interference.

Of course Fed officials shouldn't trade individual stocks—it should be illegal. But Fed officials must avoid actual and perceived financial conflicts, period. We need full transparency on the behavior that's led us here & assurances these new policies will fix what's broken.

#LatinaEqualPayDay is a stark reminder of our country’s failure to achieve equal pay for equal work for Latinas, who make 57 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. We must close this gap. I'm going to keep pushing for Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.

How do the ultra-rich get away with paying almost nothing in taxes? They exploit loopholes & hire expensive lawyers, accountants & lobbyists to rig the rules. We need a #WealthTax  so the wealthy pay their pay share & IRS enforcement to catch tax cheats.

With SCOTUS refusing to block the Texas abortion ban yet again, people's reproductive rights remain under attack—an attack happening all across America. We need to pass the Women's Health Protection Act.

The Texas abortion ban has put undue harm on the health and economic security of pregnant people across the state—forcing them to travel hundreds of miles out of state to access reproductive care. It’s shameful SCOTUS has refused to grant them relief.

I've been calling for climate-related risk disclosures to mitigate the threat of climate change to our financial system. I'm glad the Biden admin is taking steps to help address this. Regulators need to treat climate change as the existential threat it is.

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.

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

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

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.
