It's deeply unfair to our troops to allow perpetual war to continue on autopilot. Our resolution says: no war unless you come and make the case to Congress first. If we’re not even willing to have that debate, we shouldn’t be forcing people to risk their lives.

This is a strong bipartisan message from the Senate that we will uphold our constitutional duty to deliberate and vote before sending our troops into harm’s way.

How quickly a year flies by when we're spending it together. Happy Valentine's Day, Anne!

The Senate just voted to move forward with a vote on our war powers resolution. This bill sends a very powerful message to the American public—including our troops and their families—that before we get into a war, there will be careful deliberation about whether it’s necessary.

Thanks, Jeff. Grateful for your partnership over the years on this important issue.

At the same time that health officials are requesting additional emergency funding for the CDC to prepare for the threat of the coronavirus, President Trump is proposing budget cuts to the CDC, WHO, and NIH. We need to listen to the experts, not defund them.

RT if you support #DACA  and #DREAMers  who make our nation stronger #DefendDACA 

Ten rounds. That's the magazine limit allowed in Kentucky while hunting deer. Yet when we call for similar limits on assault weapons used in mass shootings, we're told it violates the 2nd Amendment. Why are we valuing deer lives more than human life?

I wanted to be first at my polling place, but 99-year-old Minerva Turpin beat me to it. Looks like I need to get used to being number two!

Retweet if you think the Senate GOP should #ShowUsTheBill  and hold hearings on health care

Charlottesville violence was fueled by one side: white supremacists spreading racism, intolerance & intimidation. Those are the facts.

People often forget that we *already had* an assault weapons ban. For a decade! So don't let the gun lobby cry "unconstitutional!" It wasn't. We are pushing to *reinstate* this law so we can reduce mass shootings. Pretty straightforward.

It's 11:21pm. Most Americans are asleep. But the GOP members of the Senate Finance Committee just rammed through their tax bill on a partisan vote, under cover of darkness. This process is an embarrassment.
