Tackling the climate crisis has always been one of my top priorities. This Congress, Senate Democrats delivered—we've taken the biggest, boldest action on climate in U.S. history, and the future of Washington state stands to benefit from it. — PolitiTweet.org

It's heartbreaking & wrong that a patient from Texas had to fly to WA state just to get abortion care. No one should be denied the health care they need, but that's exactly what Republicans are doing with their extreme abortion bans—& they want to take it to all 50 states. https://t.co/RbnrEtkCsR — PolitiTweet.org

Everyone has a right to high-quality, affordable housing. That’s why I’ve fought to secure housing relief that has helped so many people in need in WA state pay their rent or mortgage, & why I’ll continue to push for long-term action to lower housing costs for everyone. — PolitiTweet.org

In Southwest Washington, I helped secure funding to ensure clean drinking water, expand access to mental and substance use disorder programs, and build safer roads for everyone to use. I’m in the Senate making sure Washington state’s priorities are Congress’s priorities. — PolitiTweet.org

Parents across WA state are struggling to find & afford child care—& that includes so many pursuing a higher education. I secured funding to help student parents get child care on-campus—& I'm keeping up the fight to lower child care costs for EVERYONE. https://t.co/Kmc8dDeW9G — PolitiTweet.org

Keeping Washington state’s marine habitats healthy and vibrant is so important—right now and for future generations. That’s why I helped create the @NWStraits Commission and why I’m introducing legislation today to continue to support it. https://t.co/NhWUYpOwU8 — PolitiTweet.org

Right now, too many Hanford workers with beryllium exposure can’t get the care they need because of a technicality. That’s unacceptable. We owe it to Hanford workers to get them the care they deserve—& I’m introducing legislation today to get it to them. https://t.co/ZPgHtJvAZe — PolitiTweet.org

Once again, Senate Republicans sided WITH special interests and dark money—and AGAINST honest and transparent political debate. Instead of voting for the #DISCLOSE Act and cracking down on the dark money in our democracy, Republicans blocked it. Shameful. — PolitiTweet.org

Republicans want to: ❌ Ban abortion in all 50 states with a national abortion ban. ❌ Punish doctors who provide abortions in states where it's legal now. ❌ Prevent women from getting birth control. This is the extreme Republican agenda. — PolitiTweet.org

In the year 2022, Black women shouldn't be paid just 58 cents on average for every dollar white men make. Women deserve to be paid the same as men for doing the same work. It's past time to pass my #PaycheckFairness Act to make equal pay a reality. #BlackWomensEqualPay — PolitiTweet.org

It was my honor to introduce WA state’s own Jamal Whitehead at his @JudiciaryDems hearing. As @POTUS’s first judicial nominee with a disability, his confirmation would bring to the federal bench someone who understands the experiences of so many people with disabilities. https://t.co/PG2WBFZ7Wq — PolitiTweet.org

Republicans just blocked my legislation to protect doctors from being punished for providing abortion care in states where it's already legal—just a week after they introduced a national abortion ban that threatens doctors with time in jail.

One of the most important things I can do as a Senator is help get federal resources directly to WA state. That's why I've fought to secure funding for projects across WA like restoring aquatic habitats within the Puget Sound, building supportive housing in Spokane, & much more. — PolitiTweet.org

The Trump tax cuts were a gift to giant corporations and left working people in the dust. With the Inflation Reduction Act, we're making sure companies are paying their fair share in taxes because WA state's workers shouldn't be paying more in taxes than giant corporations. — PolitiTweet.org
