AG Barr needs to stop his plan to make state and local governments, including those that are currently suing Purdue Pharma, owners of this OxyContin business that has devastated our communities.

Americans are paying the highest price in the world for Remdesivir because the Trump administration is allowing Gilead Sciences to jack up the price on this #COVID19  treatment. This needs to change. We need to lower costs and ensure this treatment is accessible to people.

Just wrapped up a great conversation with @RepGwenMoore , @Comm_Advocates  & @CitizenActionWI  on the need to make bold investments in new jobs programs that will put people back to work & help folks through this economic crisis. This is a stronger way forward and we must seize it.

Enough is enough. Trump lost and a smooth, peaceful transition is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. @USGSA  and @GSAEmily  need to acknowledge Joe Biden as President-Elect so we can start moving our nation forward.

The tragic violence at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa today is horrifying. My heart breaks for the victims and their loved ones. Thank you to our first responders for their brave and rapid response.

State & local governments have been on the frontlines of this pandemic from the beginning. We need to provide more support for our frontline workers so they can continue to provide essential services. We must act to #FundTheFrontLines .

Drug and alcohol rehab facilities have created a “huge, unpaid shadow workforce” – requiring patients to work for little to no pay rather than focusing on their recovery & treatment. @SenWarren  and I are demanding the @USGAO  investigate this now.

Don’t forget – from now until December 15, you can sign up for quality, affordable health insurance coverage for you and your family. Go to now to . #GetCovered

State & local communities have been working tirelessly throughout this pandemic. Now they're planning to undertake one of the largest vaccination efforts in U.S. history. Congress must provide folks on the ground the resources they need to ensure a swift vaccine distribution.

Climate change is an immediate & growing threat to our national security, public health and economy. It’s time to take bold action - naming John Kerry to the National Security Council as the presidential envoy for climate is an important step forward.

Last month, @realDonaldTrump  claimed that Mexico had agreed to immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural products from American farmers. That was a lie.

This is a disturbing report of suspicious trading in our futures and equities markets. It's worth having SEC, CFTC, DOJ, and FBI look into it. So I have asked them to do so.

Here's @SpeakerVos . He put voters’ health & lives at risk by refusing to postpone the election. He is wearing #PPE  that frontline health care workers need to protect themselves & save lives. Wisconsin still doesn't have what we need because @realDonaldTrump  hasn't delivered it.

Being a President for "all Americans" should include transgender students who deserve schools free of discrimination.

@VP  Pence took two months off from his COVID-19 task force so he could spend his time telling everyone @realDonaldTrump  had the pandemic under control. It’s not under control, it’s spreading because of a complete and total failiure of leadership in the White House.

If you still have an absentee ballot in Wisconsin DO NOT mail it. Fill it out, get witness signature & address on the envelope, and HAND DELIVER it by 8pm 11/3 to your local clerk or official drop box location. Make sure your VOTE is counted.
