The American people are sick and tired of the hypocrisy and corruption in Congress and the dangers of the Trump administration. Grassroots activism and change are the only route forward.

There was no "massive voter fraud". If anyone has committed voter fraud, it is the Republican party who are working tirelessly to restrict voting rights across the country.

"What do we do when we have a president and White House surrogates, along with enablers in the right-wing media, who continuously lie about something as fundamental to our democracy as whether we’ve got massive voter...

People all over the country have been out on the streets in Seattle, in San Francisco, in New York and many other places. And it’s working. The minimum wage is going up all over this country to $15 an hour. Our job now is to pass $15 an hour minimum wage in Washington so that every worker in this nation can have a living wage. When millions of us stand together we are going to transform this...

Anyone who tells you Social Security is going broke is lying. We can increase Social Security benefits for millions of Americans and extend the life of Social Security if we have the political will to tell the wealthiest Americans to pay the same rate as everyone else.

Worst of the worst. Donald Trump has brought forth the worst group of cabinet nominees in the modern history of our country. People who want to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and give huge tax break to billionaires. Nominees who will ignore the needs of women, children, the sick and the poor, while bending over backwards for Wall Street and corporate America. But in many ways,...

Today, we suffer from a grotesque level of income and wealth inequality that Trump policies will make worse. Millions of American workers are now working longer hours for lower wages, while 52 percent of all new income goes to the top 1%. The simple historical truth is that workers in unions earn better pay, have better working conditions and better benefits than non-union workers. They can...

Pope Francis is absolutely right. The Native American people have given us so much, yet they have been lied to, treaties they signed have been abrogated and their views have been ignored on issues like the Dakota Access Pipeline that impact their communities. Enough is enough. We must fight for a new kind of relationship between the federal government and the Native American community. The...

Congratulations, Mr. Schwarzman, on your 70th birthday and your ability to spend $20 million on your party. I hope you had a good time. You will certainly make a fitting member of the Trump administration, which includes the wealthiest cabinet in the history of the country.

Thanks to your efforts, Andrew Puzder, the CEO of Hardees and Carl’s Jr., has withdrawn his name from consideration to be the next labor secretary. Whomever the next nominee is one thing is clear: We will not rest until every worker in America is paid a living wage of $15 bucks an hour and has the right to join a union free from fear and intimidation.

What did he know? When did he know it? There is widespread acknowledgement that Russia played an extremely active role in the 2016 campaign. What we don’t know is if that effort was coordinated with Trump or others in his campaign. Today I will be asking the Senate Intelligence Committee to thoroughly investigate that issue. We need to know whether we have a president whose foreign policy...

You will recall, Trump went before the American people in the campaign and said, “I’m going to take on Wall Street. We're going to clean the swamp.” Well, the swamp has now overrun Washington, D.C. You have all of these guys from Goldman Sachs, the same old crew of Wall Street people, the people whose greed and recklessness and illegal behavior nearly destroyed our economy.

The decision of Michael Flynn to resign as National Security Advisor was the right one. Flynn had damaged himself in a very serious way, first through his inappropriate and possibly illegal conversations with the Russian ambassador while still a private citizen, and then by lying both to the public and his own administration colleagues as to the content of those conversations.

But Flynn...

Donald Trump said he was going to clean out the swamp, drain the swamp. Remember that? Well, guess who's running the swamp right now — the same exact Wall Street guys who have always determined American financial and economic policy. Trump is backtracking on every economic promise that he made to the American people. He told workers he would stand up for them and stand up to Wall Street. Now,...

Marathon Pharmaceuticals plans to charge $89,000 for deflazacort, a drug that is widely available abroad in countries like Canada and the United Kingdom for approximately $1,000 per year. That level of greed is unconscionable! Potentially life-saving medication does no one any good if they cannot afford it.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss poverty, to raise the issue of poverty to a national level, both in McDowell County and in our country as a whole.

That does not happen if leaders around the world are not prepared to work with our president, the leader of the most powerful nation on earth.
