Twitter Web App : The House passed the Paycheck Fairness Act on March 27, 2019 – 505 days ago. It is long past time for @SenateMajLdr McConnell to give that bill a vote and help close the pay gap, especially for Black women and other women of color.

Twitter Web App : Today is #BlackWomensEqualPay Day, the day this year when Black women finally earn what white men made in 2019. This wage gap is part of the systemic discrimination that Black women face every day – injustices proven devastating during COVID-19. cnbc.com/2020/08/13/bla…

Twitter Web App : Federal regulators must account for the economic threats caused by the #ClimateCrisis – & make sure that the fossil fuel industry isn't downplaying their climate risks to investors & the public. That's why I introduced the Climate Risk Disclosure Act with Rep. Sean Casten last year.

Twitter Web App : The #ClimateCrisis threatens communities & economies. That's why I’m pushing the SEC to make public companies disclose their climate-related risks – in fact, I’ve got a bill for that. But it's not just me – big investors are also demanding the same info. politico.com/news/2020/08/1…

Twitter Web App : Breonna Taylor was shot to death by police in her own home 5 months ago today. All of the officers have walked free. We must demand #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor. And we must keep fighting for the Justice in Policing Act to protect Black lives and end police brutality. #SayHerName

Twitter Web App : Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's investments in U.S. Postal Service competitors were already deeply problematic. But his purchase of @Amazon stock options after his appointment is inexcusable. The USPS OIG must investigate this corruption. cnn.com/2020/08/12/pol…

Twitter Web App : Trump's executive order won't do a darn thing for the tens of millions of Americans about to lose their homes. Enough with the political games – the Senate must pass a relief package that includes my bill to extend and expand the eviction moratorium.

Twitter Web App : I cannot believe I have to say this: the federal government should not be changing our country’s water efficiency standards because Donald Trump is having problems washing his hair. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Twitter Web App : I joined Martin Heinrich and Senate Democrats in condemning the nomination of William Perry Pendley to lead the Bureau of Land Management. His record of racism toward Native people and advocacy for reducing public lands clearly disqualifies him from this role.

Twitter Web App : COVID-19 has forced underfunded public health officials to shift resources away from controlling the spread of EEE – a deadly mosquito-borne illness in MA. Ed Markey & I are again urging CDC to help state & local public health efforts to fight EEE. bostonglobe.com/2020/08/10/met…

Twitter Web App : President Trump on U.S. COVID deaths: “It is what it is.”

It’s not just President Trump. According to Sen. McConnell, 20 Republicans don’t think we should do ANYTHING else on COVID

Thats why Senate GOP delayed for four months & thats why we’ve been unable to find an agreement

Twitter Web App : Democrats, Independents, and Republicans agree: it makes no sense to let giant corporations and private equity vultures gobble up struggling small businesses and increase their power through predatory mergers during a pandemic. newsweek.com/most-americans…

Twitter Web App : Sabotaging the U.S. Postal Service is a threat to our upcoming elections. But it’s also a threat to how many Americans pay bills, receive prescriptions, and stay in business – especially during this pandemic. We must fight back to #SaveTheUSPS. finance.yahoo.com/news/we-see-it…

Twitter Web App : The State Dept bypassed Congress to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia without ensuring they won’t be used against civilians. Here’s a thought, Secretary Pompeo – if our weapons are at risk of being used against innocent people, don’t sell them to these countries. politico.com/news/2020/08/1…

Twitter Web App : Deploying federal agents to shoot rubber bullets at protesters exercising their First Amendment right is unconstitutional.

Federal agents and their leaders in the chain of command must be held accountable.

Twitter Web App : MA schools stepped up to feed hungry kids during this pandemic – but they need Dept. of Agriculture’s flexibility to keep meeting their students’ needs. Last week the entire MA delegation urged USDA to extend its school nutrition waivers through the 2020-2021 school year.politico.com/news/2020/07/2…
