Middle class families pay into Social Security with every dollar they earn. But for the top 1%, their contributions are capped. If we remove this cap, we can ensure everyone pays their fair share and protect Social Security for decades to come. #ScrapTheCap
Oregon landfill accepted 2 million pounds of radioactive fracking waste from North Dakota
This is incredibly disturbing. I stand with local leaders who are calling for a public meeting & full transparency about any risks & health impacts that Gorge residents may be facing. I hope the OR legislature is able to ban all future fracking waste from coming to our state.
Let me get this straight—Trump is taking BILLIONS of dollars from DoD that were meant to fund emergency defense programs so that he can build his vanity project that won’t actually solve any of the problems he says it will? And @SenateGOP is ok with that?
It was a real pleasure, Wayne. You’re helping to educate and develop incredible young leaders, and we’re sure going to need all the bright, dedicated minds we can get to solve the problems before us.
This is an incredibly important development in the fight for justice in Sudan, & it’s exactly the kind of accountability @RepMcGovern & I called for in our bicameral letter to Secretaries Pompeo & Mnuchin. I applaud this decision by the Sudanese government
The Senate just sent a powerful message that America does not want to blunder into another endless war. Trump’s reckless actions w/ Iran show exactly why this power must not rest w/ one individual. We will restore our constitutional system of governance.
Leave it to Oregon to lead the way on reducing plastic pollution in our communities, bodies, & environment! Proud to team up w/ @RonWyden to bring a “bottle bill” (modeled off of our own state’s incredibly successful program) to the rest of the nation.
Facial recognition is both a powerful & problematic frontier—and one Congress needs to get ahead of NOW. @SenBooker & I are demanding a moratorium on federal use until we can be sure people of color won't be wrongfully targeted, & Americans’ rights to privacy won't be abused.
