Thank you, @POTUS, for reversing this discriminatory and inhumane policy that needlessly put lives at risk. This is a significant step in restoring healthcare protection for all LGBTQ+ Americans. https://t.co/VIj7MJfE1n

Republicans do not get to lecture Democrats on 'valuing life' when they continue to support the death penalty and a for-profit medical system that allows people to die b/c they can't afford to live. You can't claim to be a defender of life if you uphold policies that kill people. https://t.co/Cy039WTVgi

.@POTUS pledged to install 500k electric vehicle charging stations. The EV Freedom Act will do that, and: 🔋 Create good-paying union jobs 🔋 Allow us to recharge a vehicle in the same time it takes to refill a tank 🔋 Dedicate 50% of funding to frontline communities https://t.co/qYfLIUrigm

These nominations followed a months-long process with community partners to determine where we could have the most meaningful impact. While we likely won’t know for a while if any will be funded, we’re confident all 10 are worthy.

Much like the CCC of the New Deal-era, the GND's Civilian Climate Corps closes the gap between those who need work and work that needs to be done. https://t.co/4SVPP2NlSz

The Civilian Climate Corps aims to employ 1.5 million young Americans - putting them to work remediating blight, maintaining our parks and natural lands - and ultimately put them on a path to a long-term career, providing support like student loan relief and child/eldercare.

63M don’t have access to basic banking, like check cashing w/o fees. There’s a solution - one that would also send funding to @USPS. Post offices already exist in underbanked areas & could begin providing basic services via our pilot program with @BillPascrell & @RepMarcyKaptur https://t.co/nOU4dsFcfO

Environmental justice advocate Steven Donziger helped hold Chevron accountable for dumping toxic chemicals into Indigenous communities. Now he's facing an unprecedented and unjust legal assault. @RepCori, @RepRashida & I are leading the call for AG Garland to review his case. https://t.co/RPdQNkcRvF

The American Rescue Plan championed progressive causes like the Child Tax Credit, stimulus checks, and FEMA funeral reimbursements. Now, we need to continue this work by investing $10 trillion over 10 years in infrastructure to meet the crisis of the moment we’re in. https://t.co/UQSiKyR2b8

The #ChildTaxCredit payments are expected to arrive in July. This program is a lifeline for the middle class, helping families buy groceries, pay rent, & afford the essentials during this crisis. Learn more about the Child Tax Credit here: https://t.co/DsBYcjzEkZ

The one-year expansion of the #ChildTaxCredit will benefit 90.4% of children in NY-14. That's 134,800 children! It will also lift 12,000 children in NY-14 out of poverty and benefit 44,100 households. It's time to #MakeCTCPermanent https://t.co/GYJaHr1j3I

If you are fully vaccinated against #COVID19, you can start doing many things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, get a vaccine as soon as you can. See full details: https://t.co/s5kXwg65fB https://t.co/fvhehUiiCi
