I don鈥檛 have a lot of words today, except to say that there is a concerted effort right now to convince you that 鈥渘othing can be done.鈥 It is designed to make you give in to the exhaustion of this moment. Don鈥檛 believe it. It鈥檚 a lie. We have power if we mobilize it.

We are begging you @SenSchumer @SpeakerPelosi @POTUS @WhiteHouse. If you won鈥檛 do anything, step aside so we can elect people who will.
May their memories be a revolution. This is the number for the Senate hotline - (202) 224-3121. Call your Senators. Tweet them. Show up at their offices. Demand that they vote on #GunReform TODAY. @SenSchumer @SenatorDurbin @SpeakerPelosi @SenateDems, we need ACTION! #Uvalde

Replying to @SenatorSinema
Do the right thing now. Reform the filibuster by moving to 41 needed to continue debate. Put the burden on the minority. Make them go around the clock, make them debate. Finally, finally do the right thing.
