There is something profoundly wrong when we have a president, and we have Republican congressional leaders, who are working overtime for tax breaks for billionaires, but they have nothing to say about raising the minimum wage. I will soon be introducing legislation to do just that.

Congratulations to President Trump! He has set a new record—having the lowest approval rating of any president after the first three months in office. This tells us something very important. Americans clearly aren’t on board with his disastrous agenda: xenophobic immigration policies, throwing millions off health care, putting corporate profits over the safety of our environment, and many more...

This is exactly what we mean when we talk about oligarchy. Multi billionaires and corporations should not have the power to pick and choose who is in charge of our federal agencies. But that is exactly what happened—Koch Industries spent millions on lobbying Congress to confirm Scott Pruitt, our head of the Environmental Protection Agency who doesn’t believe in environmental protection. It's...

Our country is strong when unions are strong. The past few decades have seen the power of unions and workers' rights as a whole drastically decline - this is unacceptable. We must fight for the working men and women of this country to have their voices heard loud and clear.

Big surprise. Trump lied. During the campaign, Mr. Trump promised people that there would be “consequences” for companies who move jobs out of the country and throw Americans out on the streets. But for Carrier Corp., the “consequences” of closing a plant in Huntington, Indiana, and cutting 600 jobs at another in Indiana was a $7 million tax break. Mr. Trump—this isn’t just playing politics....

Broadband access is a necessity, not a luxury. Period.

Since taking over the FCC, President Trump’s Chairman, Ajit Pai, has been waging war on internet access and consumer protections on the behalf of large corporations like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T.
Last week, Mr. Pai took action to remove price caps that are meant to protect schools, hospitals, libraries, and small businesses from being...

America is the wealthiest country in the history of the world. And yet today, millions of our seniors are going hungry and millions of children are in poverty. 28 million people don’t have health insurance. To be a poor person means to have a shorter life expectancy. The reality is that in America today poverty is a death sentence. According to a new report, the poorest men in America live...

Over and over again, candidate Trump told the American people that he was a different kind of Republican. He claimed to be a champion of the working people. He said that he was going to stop Wall Street from getting away with murder. He said he was going to re-instate the Glass Steagall Act to prevent Wall Street banks from gambling with the bank deposits of the American...

Let me be clear. Climate change is real. It is caused by human activity. And it is already causing devastating consequences. In the year 2017 it is almost unbelievable that a president of the United States and his party continue to deny the virtually unanimous scientific community. But there is hope because people are fighting back. People around the world are saying: The time for denial is...

My Republican colleagues love to talk about "family values" and how much they respect families and children. But do they care that we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on Earth? Do they support guaranteeing twelve weeks of paid family and medical leave? Do they respect families enough to pass universal child care?

This is what a revolution looks like. The number of workers maintaining wind turbines is set to more than double between 2014 and 2024, according to estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. If we really want to create millions of jobs and leave behind a planet that our grandchildren can actually live in, we need to transform our dependence away from fossil fuels. And we need to do it now.

This says a lot! The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum is switching to solar power in order to save money. Coal is the past, and solar is the present and the future. Solar power is not a trend or a temporary fix to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels. We need to do whatever we can invest our resources in sustainable forms like solar power, to protect our planet for future generations...

There really is no limit to the pharmaceutical industry’s greed. The entire industry is full of crooks. While Americans are making life-and-death choices on whether to pay for food or their prescribed medications, drug companies continue to rake in astronomical profits and pay their executives millions. Our job is to stand up to the industry and say: We will not take this anymore. This greed...

He said he would help the middle class. Instead, he’s tried to throw millions of people off their health insurance. He’s trying to give more tax breaks to billionaires and corporations.

The American people are ready to end the international embarrassment of being the only major country not to guarantee health care to all of its people. In a recent survey from the Economist/YouGov, a majority of Americans support “expanding Medicare to provide health insurance to every American.” Meanwhile, another poll from Morning Consult/Politico showed that a plurality of voters support “a...
