Chicagoans know it well—sitting in traffic is the worst. That's one reason I wrote a provision that's now part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal that will help clear up congestion and get more folks to their destination quicker across the country. chicagotribune.com/business/…

Every holiday season, we're reminded that it isn't about the presents we get—but the presents we give. And the best present we can give our family is peace of mind that they have access to healthcare in the year to come. Only a week left to #GetCovered👉healthcare.gov.

The All Stations Accessibility Program (ASAP) Act sets aside $1.75 billion to make transit stations across the country more accessible for people with disabilities. We're checking in with @SenDuckworth, who helped introduce the ASAP Act. LIVE: wbez.org/live + 91-5 FM

Reducing food insecurity. Helping working families get the support they need. A profound victory, indeed. Thanks to Democrats and Democrats alone.
Treasury Sec. Janet Yellen says the Child Tax Credit in the American Rescue Plan reduced food insecurity for families by 24%. She calls it “a profound economic and moral victory.”

It’s simple: we’re one of the wealthiest nations on the planet. We shouldn’t be among the most fatal for new moms in the developed world, too. The Build Back Better Act would help tackle this maternal health crisis, end racial disparities and save moms' lives.

Today marks 80 years since the horrific attack on Pearl Harbor—a day that will forever live in infamy. On Pearl Harbor Day, we are reminded of the sacrifices made and the brave lives lost in service to our nation. May we live each day in a way that honors their sacrifices.

Today I will mark the first ever @WhiteHouse Maternal Health Day of Action. We must do everything we can to protect and strengthen maternal health and reproductive health. This is about the rights of women and the future of our nation. nitter.fdn.fr/i/broadcasts/1vA…

Today is Maternal Health Day of Action at the @WhiteHouse! I'm proud to be joining this important summit and moderating a panel of women and providers to shine a light on the systemic challenges facing our maternal care system and why we must pass the Build Back Better Act.

On this day, the 13th amendment was ratified—abolishing the enslavement of Black Americans. But 156 years later, racial injustice persists. In our broken criminal justice system, police brutality, discrimination and beyond. It's on all of us to bring about systemic change.

When I was recovering at Walter Reed, Bob Dole was a patient too. He was 81 years old then, and he had his own private room, but he always did his rehab with the rest of us—cracking jokes and sharing stories about his Army days. It was an honor to be able to call him a friend.
Breaking News: Bob Dole is dead at 98. He overcame grievous war wounds to become Senate majority leader, spending decades on the national stage. nyti.ms/3Il8dt4

I’ll always remember how that proud Veteran from an earlier generation took the time—during some of the most difficult moments of my life—to interact with us younger Soldiers, helping us recover from both our physical and psychological wounds.

He was a Wounded Warrior, true statesman and model of the Greatest Generation who never failed to answer the call to serve. My thoughts are with Bob Dole’s loved ones today, but I know there are many across this great nation—myself included—who will miss him dearly too.

She didn't know it then, but Rosa Parks' bravery aboard that bus set into motion the historic Montgomery Bus Boycott that took place 66 years ago today. Let this be a reminder of how one powerful act of peaceful protest can be on our path to true racial justice in America.

Lifting children out of poverty and putting money in the pockets of working families everywhere. That’s what Democrats did with expanded Child Tax Credit. And we could extend it with the Build Back Better Act.

I had a great discussion with @NorthwesternU's @BuffettInst yesterday today on the importance of environmental justice and how climate change impacts our national security. It was an honor to be your inaugural guest speaker.
Thank you @SenDuckworth for joining Northwestern's @BuffettInst to examine the intersection of climate change, national security, climate justice, and how universities can partner with the government to improve the future.
