The change we need will not happen tomorrow. But it is important that we maintain our vision and continue to fight.

The fact that our "very stable genius" president prefers to be briefed about the pandemic by a game show host on Twitter instead of scientists and doctors tells you everything you need to know about how clueless and pathetic the Trump administration is. Trump must be defeated.

 25,148  622  4,752

As the pandemic surges, Trump is more clueless, isolated and unhinged than ever. He is undermining Dr. Fauci, and believes that "everyone is lying" about COVID-19, including the CDC. For the sake of science and the health of our nation, Trump must be defeated.

Texas, vote for @SiegelForTexas tomorrow to help us continue our fight for Medicare for All, a livable planet and to get big money out of politics.

Thank you Senator @BernieSanders!

I’m so honored to be in this fight with you. Together in 2021 we will fight for solutions that meet the scale of the crises we are facing: on jobs and racial justice, on climate and health.

Let’s finish the job! #TX10

Trump is finally wearing a mask. Too little too late.

His refusal to develop national pandemic policy based on science has led to widespread confusion and cost us many thousands of lives.

Trump has rejected science. In November, we must come together and reject Trump.

Trump commutes Roger Stone's sentence, while Black and Brown kids sit in jail. This is why we need major reform of a broken and racist criminal justice system. No more two-tier justice. Rich or poor, Black, white or Latino — we need "equal justice under law."

 20,388  725  3,883

Mitt Romney and I hold different opinions on virtually everything. But I agree with him strongly that Trump's commutation of Roger Stone's sentence is "unprecedented, historic corruption." The key political question of our time is: Where are all the other Republicans?

It's summer. It's hot. It's vacation time. Sadly, the U.S. is the only major country not to guarantee any paid vacation or holidays. The result: 1 in 4 workers get no paid vacation time or holidays. This is outrageous. We need an economy that works for workers, not just owners.

We can keep winning races and electing progressives around the country, but we need your help. Join our #SummerOfAction and sign up to make calls today!

I fought alongside @BernieSanders to ensure a Senate vote in July on his amendment to reduce $740B defense budget 10%

We'll put the money to priorities like health care, housing, childcare in communities with 25%+ poverty, including many communities of color

Proudly support it

This month the Senate will vote on my amendment to cut the Pentagon's bloated $740 billion budget and invest in housing, health care, education and jobs in distressed communities here at home. I thank @chuckschumer for his support for this amendment and securing a vote on it.

Trump rejects science on COVID-19. And thousands unnecessarily die.

Trump rejects science on climate change. And the very future of the planet is at stake.

We cannot continue a government which rejects science.

This November, we must come together and reject Trump.

Here's something we don't discuss much. Life expectancy is in direct correlation to income. If you're rich you're likely to live a much longer and healthier life than if you're poor. Poverty kills. Our job: build a health care system and economy that work for all, not just a few.

As someone who grew up in poverty, @JulieOliverTX knows the struggle working Texans face each and every day. The people of Texas’ 25th Congressional District need Julie fighting for them in Congress, and I’m proud to support her grassroots campaign.

Senator Sanders has never forgotten that Congress is supposed to serve people, not corporations -- and that families struggling to afford healthcare, working class Americans, and those who our political system ignores deserve a voice.

I’m honored and truly humbled.

Raw sewage drains into Pamela Rush's backyard. Her children are exposed to mold. She still owes $15,000 on her mobile home.

Systemic injustices trap millions of people like Pamela in poverty. Our mission is to find them a way out.

Jane and I are deeply saddened to hear that Pamela Sue Rush has passed away. I will always carry with me what she showed us. She was a mother, an activist and an unyielding spirit. She will be deeply missed. But, as I promised, I will make sure her story is never forgotten.

Y'all, I am beyond words!
I first met Bernie because he showed up right here in WV. Even though he was surrounded by press & politicians, he made a point to sit & listen to this coal miner's daughter. Sincere thanks for your compassion & support @BernieSanders!
