Proud I fought alongside @SenSanders to ensure we vote in July on his amendment to cut $740B defense budget by 10% and put $$ into priorities like health care, housing, childcare in communities with 25%+ poverty—including many communities of color I proudly support the amendment

Glad to have @SenSchumer join @SenSanders, @RepBarbaraLee & I to demand a 10% cut from this year's bloated defense budget. The time is long overdue to reshape our national priorities and put the needs of the American people first. https://t.co/6y8c3a4lqv

And let me also thank @SenSchumer for securing a vote on my amendment during the week of July 20th. If there was ever a time to fundamentally change our national priorities, now is that time. Let's cut the Pentagon budget and invest in healthcare and housing here at home.

Let me thank @SenSchumer for his support for my amendment to cut the bloated $740 billion Pentagon budget by 10% and invest $74 billion in communities that have been ravaged by extreme poverty and mass incarceration. This amendment will begin to change our national priorities. https://t.co/Ju2KWqQlXH

Opinion: U.S. government scientists helped invent remdesivir, and HHS has a legal and moral duty to ensure access to it in the U.S. and around the world. It has the policy tool it needs to do that. https://t.co/l6PGLUXUYa

Remdesivir costs less than $10 to manufacture. @GileadSciences is charging $3,100 for it. Taxpayers spent $70 million to develop this drug. Coronavirus has killed 130,000 Americans. It's time to take control of this patent and provide remdesivir to all who need it. https://t.co/a6VPvIxAC9

The richest 1% owe 70% of all unpaid taxes. With the money from these tax cheats, we could do all this: 👩🏽‍🎓Tuition-free college 👩‍👦‍👦End child hunger 🚰Clean water for all 🏡Build 500,000 affordable homes 😷Masks and PPE for all 📬Fully fund the Post Office https://t.co/vNNUeDLV14

No national testing program. No adequate production of protective gear. No commitment to a free vaccine. As almost every major country sees the spread of coronavirus decline, America's infections are spiking. Trump's incompetence is killing people.

Economists call for more direct cash payments tied to the health of the economy https://t.co/DWcLhP78eJ https://t.co/G0fUL9Iw8i

You don't need a Ph.D in economics to know this, but it can't hurt: We need direct, monthly cash payments for everybody in America until this crisis is over. https://t.co/xyRa612X7j

Evictions must be banned for the entirety of this crisis. This is a matter of racial and economic justice that Congress cannot ignore. https://t.co/mmksPso3Hh

The cruelty of this White House knows no bounds. Foreign students are being threatened with a choice: risk your life going to class in-person or get deported. We must stand up to Trump's bigotry. We must keep all our students safe. https://t.co/Q2MvmgJPqV

If Target just did it, you can be damn sure @Walmart, owned by the wealthiest family in America, can raise its starting wage to $15 an hour. https://t.co/4ZwRk6mTiP

American taxpayers are already funding the development of a coronavirus vaccine. When it is ready, we must put it in the public domain and ensure that it's available to all. No more privatizing, monopolizing and profiteering by Big Pharma. https://t.co/yAh8tFjpep

BREAKING NEWS. Court orders a shut down and removal of oil from the Dakota Access Pipeline. Order says Dakota Access assumed much of its economic risk knowingly, and the potential harm each day the pipeline operates https://t.co/pqnunJ5Suh via @IndianCountry

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and millions of others who fought against the Dakota Access Pipeline showed us the power of standing together against injustice. We can create a future where a clean environment and indigenous rights matter more than Big Oil’s profits. https://t.co/8Ato13OTWp

The Trump administration is focused on making it harder for homeless trans people to get safe shelter during this pandemic. That is outrageous. As a society, we can—and we must—end homelessness and housing discrimination against trans people. https://t.co/Dx3e1UTnYS

This is a major victory for the millions-strong climate justice movement, which fought for years to stop this pipeline. Together, we will secure clean air and good jobs building a renewable-energy economy that protects the only planet we have. https://t.co/KjXEyRlrEd

As a pandemic rages, public health departments across America are being starved and are on the verge of collapse. Meanwhile, billionaires have seen their wealth grow by $565 billion. That is what oligarchy looks like. https://t.co/vh65KgeQ9U

The minimum wage is worth less than it was 50 years ago. If wages had gone up with productivity, today it would be three times higher. Corporate America has been waging a war on workers for decades. It's about time working people stand up and fight back. https://t.co/DOm703wiSh

Breaking News: President Trump delivered a dark and divisive speech at Mount Rushmore, leaning into the culture wars and barely mentioning the pandemic. https://t.co/03WOgau4Zx

Throughout our history, demagogues have always tried to demonize different people to divide us up. We will not let Trump succeed. We will break down the irrational hatred he is fomenting. We are going to build a politics of love, compassion, and unity. https://t.co/g89uZv854h

This holiday weekend, let us reflect on the disturbing reality behind every plate of food—workers are being exploited and put at risk every day. They don’t need more lip service, they need justice: Hazard pay, sick leave, $15 an hour and a safe workplace. https://t.co/tZ6Enfemnq

Jane and I wish you and your loved ones a very happy Independence Day.

Together, we can and will create the kind of nation based on love and justice that we know we can become. https://t.co/WZFthTCCwq

I believe that right now, the American people want real transformation. They want us to invest in health care, jobs and education for all, so that they can live their lives with dignity and security. They want a government which represents all of us, not the 1%.
