We shouldn't let GOP off the hook just b/c they are desperate to pass ANY tax cut & forgot their concerns about debt https://t.co/m58DybTxyYGOP showed no confidence in their absurd claims, voting down my circuit breaker amdt that would reverse tax cuts if the deficit increasesTax breaks don't pay for themselves. Independent economists agree. GOP must be held accountable when their rosy assumptions dont materializeGOP raises alarm re: rising natl debt but tax plan would add $1.5T to deficit while giving huge tax breaks to largest corporations & richest

When it comes to the next Farm Bill, we can & should do better for ALL farmers.Let’s do more to help beginning & underserved farmers by connecting retiring farmers w/ new & making land & equipment more affordable.We need to make sure ALL farmers who grow ALL types of foods (not just commodity crops) can get crop insurance.Let’s help small farms that grow REAL foods by limiting commodity subsidies & dedicating more resources to local growers, not large agribiz.We need food & farm policies that support ALL farmers, not just a select few. #NationalFarmersDay.@realDonaldTrump, let me help: https://t.co/L3mSikU72u https://t.co/BnA2UFxMhy

We must all fight against any effort that moves us backwards & fight for efforts to reduce carbon pollution. #ActOnClimateI'm working in Congress to hold America's polluters accountable through a carbon tax and to support the decarbonization of our grid.We need to accelerate—not delay—our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and move our economy toward 100% clean, renewable energy.Scott Pruitt & the Trump admin cannot repeal facts, science, or economics.

Join us in demanding House GOP leadership end their dangerous efforts & instead allow a vote on legislation to help end gun violence. (4/4)We need action to prevent gun violence, not enable it. Yet, House GOP leadership is still working to advance the SHARE Act.
