After a long night of votes, @SenateDems  are as determined as ever to get the Inflation Reduction Act across the finish line. Republicans can offer as many bad faith amendments as they want—we’re going to stay here and get the job done. Too much is at stake.

Right now, Republicans are doing everything they can to stop the Inflation Reduction Act. They don’t want to cut costs for American families. They don’t want to address the climate crisis. And they don’t want to make Rx drugs more affordable. All they want to do is complain.

White supremacist violence is one of the leading terror threats facing the United States today. As a nation, we must accept that reality and take the necessary steps to address this crisis and stop the spread of this hateful and violent ideology.

Will be joining @CNN  shortly. Tune in.

We know Americans are feeling the brunt of inflation. This plan is fully paid for by cracking down on Big Pharma & closing tax loopholes exploited by wealthy corporations to avoid paying taxes—and no one earning less than $400,000/year will pay more in taxes becuase of our plan.

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.

I cannot believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday. President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist. He used those words repeatedly.

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.

I want to state this unequivocally: abortion is a constitutionally protected right, and the Court should uphold this constitutionally protected right. RT if you agree.
