Taxpayers spend $15B/year in direct federal subsidies to the fossil fuel industry. We shouldn't provide giveaways to the very people responsible for polluting our water and lands. I’m proud to work with @SenSanders to end the fossil fuel welfare system. https://t.co/D6wtAZCl7M https://t.co/TXTbh1u4e7

Bringing troops home from Afghanistan is a courageous decision by President Biden. There is more to be done to end the forever wars. @RepRoKhanna and I write about the next steps. https://t.co/WGsdUOZXKS

I stand in solidarity with the University of Vermont staff who are organizing to form a union. When workers unionize and collectively bargain, they gain a strong voice to fight for better employment conditions that benefit us all. https://t.co/DOmIK1VMim

LIVE: Some very powerful special interests tell us the cost of combatting climate change is just too expensive. Compared to what? We're holding a Budget Committee hearing NOW on the cost of inaction on climate change. https://t.co/mHSTh3M2Rp

Sen. Bernie Sanders reacts to Biden's plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11: “These wars cannot continue to go on forever and we've got to learn that in many respects diplomacy… is much more important, much more effective than an occupying force on the ground.” https://t.co/ho5Er9lbmu

The Budget Committee tomorrow at 11 a.m. will hold a hearing on the cost of inaction on climate change. But it won't be Big Oil who pays the price. If we do nothing, climate change will push millions into extreme poverty, disproportionately in communities of color. https://t.co/J6cSD2AHOs

We are seeing record levels of hunger in the richest nation on earth. We cannot continue to prop up a grossly unjust economy in which the very rich get much richer while millions of working families struggle to afford the most basic necessities of life. https://t.co/hEQh4VtGQl

A nation will not survive morally or economically when so few have so much and so many have so little. It is time for CEOs to pay their fair share of taxes, and treat their employees with dignity and respect. https://t.co/3ORvP6mwpM

While fossil fuel companies get rich off destroying our planet for future generations, American taxpayers are forced to cough up $15 billion per year in direct federal subsidies to the fossil fuel industry. How does that make sense?

Workers should not be intimidated, or badgered by a company because they are exercising their constitutional right to form a union.

The fact that the company was able to force workers to attend closed door, anti-union meetings is just one reason as to why we need legislation that finally gives workers a fair chance to win organizing elections.
