The most important obligation of our leaders is to keep us safe. By spreading a lie, the ex-president incited a violent attack. Anyone who continues to spread that lie is endorsing further violence. It’s unacceptable.
Mitch McConnell: "100% of my focus is on stopping this new administration."
No more games with obstructionists—ignore them and push forward to save our voting rights, protect our civil rights, and invest in middle class families.
I know that not everyone agrees with our plans to invest in middle class families. We can have real debates over issues of policy.
But the fundamental principles of our democracy are NOT up for debate. Promoting Trump’s lies means you are unfit to serve in government.
My prayers go to the families, departments, and communities of Detective Luca Benedetti with the San Luis Obispo Police Department and Officer Jimmy Inn of the Stockton Police Department, who were both killed in the line of duty this week.
"We know the risk they face. I have a family member who has been shot at and was told he was lucky to be alive. We are grateful for the sacrifices of law enforcement." - @RepSwalwellhttps://t.co/i3aWIjzaiC
.@POTUS and @HouseDemocrats fought for vaccines in arms and checks in pockets. We won that battle.
Now it’s time for the next one: creating millions of new jobs by rebuilding America. Our country deserves it and America’s families need it.
As someone who served 27 years in law enforcement, and had the honor of serving as Chief of Police, one thing I know for sure is that the police and the community, and the community is the police. We are one, and when we come together, we can do anything. https://t.co/i3aWIjzaiC
I sent a letter to @POTUS urging action on ghost guns. It is critical that the president move quickly to prevent the release of 3D-printed firearm information that could be used by criminals to make untraceable firearms.
Only half of Florida children have access to preschool, which makes it hard for parents to work and drains your bank account.
The #AmericanFamiliesPlan will provide access to free, high-quality pre-school to 3 & 4 year olds in Florida and give our children a brighter future.
The #AmericanFamiliesPlan is an ambitious plan for an ambitious country.
We believe in the power of American families. We believe in the power of the middle class. We believe that when we invest in our families, we invest in our future. https://t.co/2JN4iPZEPJ
The American Families Plan addresses four of the biggest challenges facing American families:
✅Access to a good education, including universal Pre-K
✅Quality, affordable child care
✅Up to 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave
✅Money directly into the pockets of families
"I rise to recognize the officers who made the ultimate sacrifice and died in the line of duty...I know all to well the risks that officers take...I know all too well the anxiety of not knowing if my loved one will make it home." - @RepJahanaHayeshttps://t.co/i3aWIjzaiC
We passed the #AmericanRescuePlan to help get communities back on their feet. I am grateful to the Biden Administration for their swift action to put our legislation into action by making this funding available to our community. https://t.co/HRMMcwG0QW
America is the only high income country in the world without paid family leave. It’s an embarrassment and it makes it hard to build a family here.
The #AmericanFamiliesPlan will create national paid family and medical leave, allowing you to focus on what’s most important.
