Now that we've passed a budget resolution, we're closer to making a once-in-a-generation investment for families. And we can easily fund it by making the rich & big corporations pay their fair share. Read my op-ed on 3 ideas that would raise $5 trillion+. washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

Big corporations like @Amazon shouldn't be cashing out billions in profits every year while paying almost nothing in taxes. We can stop that. My Real Corporate Profits Tax would ensure corporations pay their fair share & raise hundreds of billions to pay for #BuildBackBetter.

It’s shameful that not a single Republican supported the Freedom to Vote Act today. All 50 Democrats stood strong and voted yes. Democrats must eliminate the filibuster to protect voting rights and our democracy. There’s no more time to waste.

Private equity firm THL saddled Art Van Furniture with debt, leaving the company in bankruptcy & killing over 3,000 jobs. My #StopWallStreetLooting Act would clean up the worst abuses & encourage private equity managers to help companies grow rather than sucking them dry.

Tune in now as I host the first @SenateBanking Subcommittee hearing focused on private equity. We need to get the facts on the table about what private equity firms are doing to our economy & communities. nitter.fdn.fr/i/broadcasts/1yo…

Private equity firms were already gutting companies & killing jobs before COVID-19. Now they’re drooling over companies to exploit during this crisis. They prioritize profit and leave workers, consumers, communities, and ordinary investors in the dust.

Private equity-owned nursing homes had devastatingly high mortality rates during the pandemic. Private equity-owned retailers got loaded with debt & shut their doors for good. And private equity landlords waited for the eviction moratorium to end so they could make more money.

Today, I’m reintroducing my bill to #StopWallStreetLooting & end these abusive practices by putting private investment fund managers on the hook for companies they control, empower workers & investors, and safeguard markets from risky corporate debt. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Elizabeth Warren retweeted
For decades, hearing aids have cost thousands of dollars, making them inaccessible for roughly 30 million older Americans. That’s about to change: (1/4) washingtonpost.com/health/20…

Despite Republican efforts to politicize DA Rollins’ nomination & mischaracterize her record, data from the Boston Police Department shows violent crime in Boston is down. She has extensive law enforcement credentials & a proven track record of reducing crime. Look at the facts.
Sen. McConnell's speech on the Senate floor misrepresented U.S. Attorney nominee Rachel Rollins' record, claiming she is "soft on crime." #FactCheck: Rollins has handled civil commitment trials for sexually dangerous individuals, prosecuted money laundering, and served as a DA.

The wealthiest 1% fail to report more than 20% of their income. Third-party reporting would help the IRS zero in on cheats when the wealthy don’t honestly report their income—just like hard working wage earners already do.

Democrats want to help the IRS sniff out the hidden cash of banks’ wealthiest clients when they cheat on their taxes. So it's no surprise bank lobbyists and Republicans are spreading lies about our proposal—they have trillions in unpaid taxes on the line.

These tax reforms will help unrig the system and ensure the ultra-rich and giant corporations start to pay their fair share. Passing these in the reconciliation package would deliver a big down payment for affordable housing, universal child care, and creating green jobs.

Today I set the record straight with @TreasuryDepSec about how more 3rd party reporting will help the IRS sniff out the hidden cash of wealthy tax cheats. No surprise bank lobbyists are fighting hard against this. We have to make our tax system fairer in the reconciliation bill.

Nearly 40 million adults report difficulty hearing, yet only a fraction of them use hearing aids, primarily due to high costs. @ChuckGrassley & I passed a law in 2017 to make hearing aids available over-the-counter & drive down costs. Today that law is closer to the finish line.

Soon, people with mild to moderate hearing loss will be able to buy a hearing aid right off the shelf. OTC hearing aids will dramatically increase competition and lower costs for consumers. This is terrific news. washingtonpost.com/health/20…

I'm fighting for different ways to tackle the #ClimateCrisis in the reconciliation bill. Everything from changing our power grid to green wind & solar energy to converting public transportation to electric. This is our chance to fight back against climate change.

It’s great news that the Biden admin announced steps to address PFAS contamination in our environment. PFAS chemicals threaten public health & it’s our duty to safeguard our water & air. We must also hold big polluters accountable for harm they’ve caused in MA and across the US.
Breaking News: The Biden administration said it would regulate PFAS, the "forever chemicals" in many household items that have contaminated drinking water. Exposure to the chemicals has been linked to certain cancers and other health issues. nyti.ms/3n3gLuO
