The #BuildBackBetter Act delivers once-in-a-generation action to lower the everyday costs that burden working families – from health care to child care & more – fully paid for by making big corporations & the wealthiest pay their fair share.

We need bold investments in good public schools, public health infrastructure & environmental protection. @AppropsDems and I are ready to negotiate to fund these priorities and ensure we fund the government. It’s time for Republicans to come to the table.

Government funding legislation is essential to strengthening our communities, caring for our veterans, and protecting our national security. Republicans must come to the table so we can negotiate an agreement that delivers #ForThePeople.

The longer we fail to reach a 70% global vaccination rate, the longer COVID-19 will be able to mutate and produce dangerous variants. I joined @AppropsDems to discuss ways to speed up vaccine manufacturing and international distribution. invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=RKTnoEDf…
