The grace period for the CARES Act federal eviction moratorium ends today, leaving millions at risk of eviction & homelessness. Sen. McConnell should bring the Senate back from recess so we can get back to work. These families need #RentReliefNow .

Sen. McConnell should bring the Senate back to Washington to vote on the Delivering for America Act immediately. Whether it’s meds, paychecks, or benefits like Social Security, millions of Americans rely on USPS. We owe it to them to keep the mail running on time.

"My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed." - Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg   I’m with RBG.  RT if you are too.

This morning I joined @ToniPreckwinkle , @RepBobbyRush , @RepDannyDavis , & @RepCasten  to discuss how recent @USPS  changes have negatively impacted Illinoisans who receive their medications by mail. USPS handles 1.2 billion prescription drug shipments each year.

Climate change is an existential threat to life as we know it. I'm proud to support @SenDemsClimate  #CaseForClimateAction —a roadmap for big & bold solutions to the most important challenge of our lifetimes. You can read more about our plan here:

The President denies calling fallen American military heroes “losers.” He also denied saying “s...hole countries” in a White House meeting. I was there. He said it.

It’s been 90 days since the Supreme Court rejected President Trump’s effort to repeal DACA. And yet his Administration is still refusing to accept new DACA applications—openly ignoring an order of the highest court in the land.


BREAKING: Senate Democrats just tried to get Senate Republicans to adjourn for a few days and take the time to actually read their tax bill. RT if you agree that reading bills before they’re voted on is the least we can do.

94% of Americans (93% of gun owners) want background checks on every gun sale. Retweet if you do too.

Troubled by the ongoing violence in Hong Kong. The overwhelming majority of HK citizens aspire for greater political freedom—it’s time for Leader McConnell to allow a vote on the bipartisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019.

I'm gravely concerned that the 14 criminal referrals from Special Counsel Mueller related to the investigation are under the supervision & control of AG Barr. He's virtually disqualified himself to be the kind of person we can expect to stand back & make sure justice is served.

No, Mr. President, not "many sides." There is one side with nazi flags and nazi salutes. America is not on that side.

White supremacists were responsible for every incident of race-based domestic terrorism in the U.S. in 2018. Every single one. But for some reason, the DOJ decided not to share this information with Congress despite my repeated requests. Why? There’s no good explanation.
