Senator Pat Toomey: we are here to say, "Please vote NO when this health care bill comes before us in the Senate in a few days. This is a barbaric and immoral piece of legislation."

The science is done. The debate is over. Climate change is real, it is happening, and we must demand that massive environmental reform is put in place before it's too late to save our planet.

For weeks, Republicans have been drafting their ‘health care’ bill in secret, refusing to hold hearings or public debate. Now we know why. The bill Republicans announced is even worse than expected and by far the most harmful piece of legislation I have seen in my lifetime. This bill has nothing to do with health care. It has everything to do with an enormous transfer of wealth from working...

There is one very fundamental issue that we should not be disagreeing about. And that is, no matter what our political view progressive, conservative or moderate - we must do everything that we can to preserve American democracy and oppose the current drift toward authoritarianism that I believe President Trump represents.

Protesters with disabilities were arrested after protesting outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office over the GOP health care bill.

"Don't touch Medicaid, save our liberty," the protesters chanted outside his office. I hope Mr. McConnell listened to what the demonstrators had to say.

We cannot be throwing millions off of health care, slashing Medicaid and defunding Planned Parenthood as the Republican bill is trying to do. Our job is to rally millions of Americans against this disastrous bill to make sure that it does not pass the Senate. We must guarantee health care as a right to every American, not a privilege for the wealthy.

There’s not a single state in the country where more people support Republicans’ health care bill than oppose it. Only 29 percent of Americans support the bill. It’s the most unpopular piece of major legislation Congress has considered in decades. It is opposed by the AARP, the largest senior group in America, as well as the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the American...

This week, the United States Supreme Court agreed to hear a very important case that could limit gerrymandering of voting districts. Let’s be clear. Politicians who gerrymander districts to unfairly gain political advantages are cowards. To those who work to suppress the vote by people who may vote against them I say: get another job. Our job: Fight back. Expand voter registration and turnout....

We are seeing the results of how oligarchy functions right now in Congress, where the Republican leadership wants to throw 23 million people off of health insurance, cut Medicaid by over $800 billion, defund Planned Parenthood, cut food stamps and other nutrition programs by over $200 billion, cut Head Start and after-school programs, make drastic cuts in Pell grants and other programs that...

Every time a minimum wage increase is proposed locally or nationally, conservative politicians and their billionaire campaign contributors claim that jobs will be destroyed. Time and time again they have been proven dead wrong.

Take a look at the latest data from Seattle. According to its Office of Economic Development, after Seattle became the first major city to increase the minimum wage to...

The House passed health care bill is the worst piece of legislation I have seen in my lifetime. Now you have a process where maybe a dozen Senate Republicans even know what the bill will look like. Not only is this is a disgrace to the Senate, to the Congress, but it is an insult to the American people. We must stand up and fight back immediately.

In Phoenix, Arizona, yesterday, more than 40 flights have been cancelled — because it is too hot for the planes to fly. That is insane. But that is the reality of what we are seeing with our climate now. Of the 17 hottest years on record, 16 have occurred in the 21st century. Climate change is real and is caused by human activity. This planet and its people are in trouble. Unless we get our...

Why are we the only major country on Earth not to guarantee healthcare to all people as a right? Why do we pay double per capita for healthcare compared to any other major country? Why do we pay the highest prices in the world by far for prescription drugs? My view is we should join the rest of the industrialized world and work toward a Medicare for all single-payer program—not throw 23...

Next to Wall Street, the pharmaceutical industry is the most powerful political force in Washington. They spend huge amounts of money on lobbying and campaign contributions, and they always get their way. While one out of five Americans under 64 is unable to afford the medicine they need, and while we pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, the industry goes merrily...

Our criminal justice system is profoundly broken and has failed African Americans over and over again. We must demand a justice system that values black lives, not one that takes innocent black lives. We need major reforms including making certain that lethal force is the last response, not the first response.
