U.S. Senator Mazie K. Hirono - Proudly Serving the People of Hawaii
I have a very simple message for Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell tonight. The best and only way to honor the life’s work of Justice Ginsburg, a giant of a jurist, is to honor her fervent final wish that she not be replaced until a new president is installed.
The people doing the essential work aren't the Fortune 500 CEO or investment banker. It's the custodian, child care worker, or bus driver who have ALWAYS been essential - it isn't enough to simply tell them “thank you” and call them heroes. Actions speak louder than words.
It’s bad enough that @realDonaldTrump breaks the law all the time. Now he wants his supporters to join him. Voting twice is punishable by up to 5 years in jail and/or a $10k fine. Trump wants his supporters to become felons for him.
As an island state, Hawaii can’t drive or easily fly to the next state. We depend on deliveries of our medication or supplies from the @USPS —it's a literal lifeline. That's why we’re demanding Louis DeJoy reverse his previous changes and stop all future harm. #SaveTheUSPS
$400 million in tax fraud is the equivalent of the average American not paying taxes for 38,000 years.
Here's the thing-- Mitch McConnell is gaslighting us. Republicans rammed through a bill to give huge tax breaks to corporations and the mega-rich, and now they're using its consequences as an excuse to propose cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. It's all part of the GOP fever dream.
