Twitter Web App : Read my statement on today’s Pennsylvania federal court decision, and congratulating President-Elect Biden:…

Twitter Web App : The work Chairman Powell and Secretary Mnuchin did standing these facilities up – under extraordinary circumstances – was enormously successful in stabilizing and normalizing credit markets. Their work has led to record levels of credit availability across the economy.

Twitter Web App : I appreciate Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell agreeing to return unused CARES Act funds as part of the statutorily prescribed wind down of the emergency lending facilities.…

✅Create a council to advise on quality assessment of such facilities


Twitter Web App : Two of every three Pennsylvanians to die from COVID-19 were residents of nursing homes or other long-term care facilities. Senator Bob Casey and I introduced a bipartisan bill to combat the systemic failures at these nursing homes in Pennsylvania and across the country.

Twitter Web App : BANNED: Eating at a restaurant, going to school, work, a funeral, or a wedding.

PERMITTED: Huge protests in support of liberal policies or favored political candidates.

Seems inconsistent and arbitrary, but I'm sure Mayor Kenney and Philly officials have data to back this up.…

Twitter Media Studio : Today, we honor the heroes who have worn the uniform of our great nation. We are the land of the free because we are home to the brave. To all who have served, thank you. #VeteransDay

Twitter Web App : One should never doubt the resilience of American workers! The Q4 unemployment numbers show the labor market growing much faster than the prognosticators expected. While we haven’t fully recovered, we are well on our way!

iPhone : Congratulations to Erin and @HawleyMo on the birth of their first daughter! Wishing you and your family nothing but good health and happiness!…

Twitter Web App : This means campaign representatives must have meaningful access to observe whether the law is being followed. I strongly encourage all state and local officials to ensure that this happens as the election process is completed.

Twitter Web App : Democracy succeeds only when all sides can trust that the election process is fair and transparent. Given the extremely close result, the American people must be assured that the process is being conducted with integrity.

Twitter Web App : Today’s announcement by the media of the election’s outcome is a projection. A final outcome will be reached when the election process concludes, which is after all legal votes have been counted, litigation is resolved, and any recounts are completed.
