Social Security has kept its promises to older Americans and Americans with disabilities for 83 years. We must protect it now more than ever #SocSec83
We must protect and strengthen Social Security so it can continue to provide older Americans and Americans with disabilities stability and security #SocSec83
Social Security Disability Insurance is the contract we make with workers who put their heart, soul and body into their work, to take care of them. #SocSec83

The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on the Kavanaugh nomination even though millions of pages of documents from his White House tenure have not been released.
The Judiciary Committee is conducting a hearing without knowing basic facts about the nominee’s record.
Having these documents is vital. It is even more important for Kavanaugh, whose record indicates a disturbing and expansive views on presidential power.

As students return to their college classrooms, we should be working to ensure their safety, not peeling back their protections against campus sexual assault as Sec. DeVos announced today
Title IX is a cornerstone of federal law to protect students from sexual harassment and sexual assault, and these regulations will hurt victims and make it harder for them to seek justice
The regulations also appear to conflict with other federal law, like the Clery Act, which I amended in 2013 to improve how schools respond to sexual assault

This is disgusting. A proposal that could only be made by creatures of the swamp. How about directing some energy towards helping working families instead?
Here’s a few ideas that could use a little White House support: Protecting pension for coal miners and other American workers who are at risk of losing their pensions.
Shoring up Social Security so that people who have paid in to the system can get their guaranteed benefits.

.@realDonaldTrump’s conduct during today’s press conference with Vladimir Putin was dangerous and reckless.
I have supported the Administration’s engagement with North Korea and on other matters of foreign affairs because I believe that America is strongest when our foreign policy is bipartisan. However, what occurred today was a new low and profound embarrassment for America.
Vladimir Putin is an adversary of America who attacked our elections in 2016, illegally annexed Crimea, has backed the murderous Assad regime in Syria and works every day to undermine our country’s security.

If President Trump is unwilling to hold Vladimir Putin fully accountable for Russia’s attack on our nation during the 2016 election, then he should cancel this meeting in the wake of yesterday’s indictments.
The meeting should only go forward if President Trump is prepared to forcefully confront Russia’s actions.
If it wasn’t already clear to our President, yesterday’s indictments of Russian hackers who attacked our fundamental democratic institution — the election process — show that the Russian Federation is not our ally or our friend. They are not to be admired or applauded.

In a nation with over 700 sitting federal judges, many of whom were appointed by Republican presidents, it is outrageous that President Trump will nominate from a list of just 25 dictated to him by the Heritage Foundation.
This list is the bidding of corporate special interests hell-bent on handing health care over to insurance companies, crushing unions that represent working men and women, and promoting policies that will leave the middle-class further behind.
Any judge on this list is fruit of a corrupt process straight from the D.C. swamp.
