The filibuster isn't a constitutional right or a pillar of our democracy — but the right to vote is.

I'm fighting to defend everyone's right to vote — whether you're voting for my party or not. But as I made clear in my @foxnews op-ed today, I'm not going to let the filibuster stand in our way.

Protecting the right to vote shouldn't be a partisan issue. But when the same people pushing baseless claims of stolen elections want to make voting even harder, I'll do everything I can to defend your right. And I won't let the filibuster stand in my way.

Americans need to be able to trust that our public officials aren't acting in their own self-interest. We need to pass the Ban Conflicted Trading at the Fed Act to ban Federal Reserve officials from trading individual stocks.

Omicron is more contagious — but if you're vaccinated and boosted, you are far less likely to get seriously ill and need hospital care. Protect yourself and help ease the strain on hospitals and health care workers. Get vaccinated and boosted.

Kids 12 and older who got their second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine before August, 2021 are now eligible to get their boosters! Both my boys got their boosters, and I hope you'll boost your kids too. It's the best way to protect them and help keep all of our kids in school.

Watching @GabbyGiffords ' recovery these past eleven years has been nothing short of remarkable. Every single day, I'm amazed by her tenacity and determination to keep pushing forward and to keep fighting to end the gun violence epidemic. Gabby, I'm so lucky to call you my friend.

I did not let a violent insurrection stop me from doing my constitutional duty to certify a free and fair election. I will not let the filibuster stop me from doing my duty to defend the sacred right to vote.

But our work doesn’t end there. Those who are determined to undermine our democracy are still hard at work pushing the Big Lie and using it to justify an unprecedented wave of voter suppression bills.

That day left a stain on our democracy. We owe it to the American people to see the investigation of January 6th through to the end and hold those responsible accountable.

I keep these text messages as a reminder of what it felt like to live through that day — not just to remember my own fear and frustration, but to remember how terrifying it was for the people who loved me to watch the violence unfold live on TV and worry over my safety.

Last year I wrote for @nytopinion about what it was like in the Capitol on January 6th. Today, I want to share with you some of the text messages I've saved from that day.

Look at what Erin Scanlon and Lindsey Knapp endured and tell me: Does that seem like a fair, independent, and impartial justice system? We need to FULLY remove the prosecution of serious crimes from the chain of command. #PassMJIIPA

Hospitals and health care workers are already exhausted after fighting this pandemic for two years. Please, please, please: Get vaccinated. Get boosted. And wear a mask and get tested. It's the best way to protect yourself from getting seriously ill.

This has been a tough year, and we've still got big problems to tackle in the year ahead. But I'm still an optimist, because I know we're ready to roll up our sleeves, get to work, & make next year even brighter. From my family to yours, wishing you all a happy, healthy new year!

To all the moms who've been working so hard to look after your kids this year — pulling together child care, carpools, staying home longer than you expected — I want you to know that I'm so proud of you. And we're going to fight to get you affordable child care and #PaidLeave .
