Today, with @SenMarkey and @SenGillibrand, I am introducing a 60% tax on the obscene wealth gains of 467 billionaires during this pandemic in order to guarantee healthcare as a right to all for an entire year. #MakeBillionairesPay https://t.co/6BxIHVTYvF — PolitiTweet.org

Today is the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. Seven years ago, it was gutted by the Supreme Court, leading to a wave of voter suppression laws. Our job now is to restore and expand the Voting Rights Act, fight voter suppression, and guarantee the right to vote. — PolitiTweet.org

The $600 a week in additional unemployment insurance has helped American workers afford their medicine, put food on the table, and keep roofs over their heads. Why the hell did Republicans just strip this lifeline away from 30 million workers trying to survive this pandemic? https://t.co/S1PVqzJb6H — PolitiTweet.org

President Obama is absolutely right. It is an outrage that modern-day poll taxes, gerrymandering, I.D. requirements, and other forms of voter suppression still exist today. If expanding the Voting Rights Act requires us to eliminate the filibuster, then that is what we must do. — PolitiTweet.org

Last week's $740 billion military spending bill wasn't enough. Senate Republicans want $29 billion more for the Pentagon as they try to slash weekly unemployment benefits from $600 to $200 for 30 million Americans who lost their jobs. "Pathetic" is too mild of a word for this. — PolitiTweet.org
