I will continue to demand a vote on sensible gun legislation from my Republican colleagues. We should vote and show the public where we stand. Who are we as a Congress if we cannot protect our children?

Horrified to hear the news of the school shooting in Florida. My heart goes out to all the students, faculty, staff, and families affected by this. This is the 18th school shooting this year, this has to stop.

We should be working to bolster pgrms like Medicare. That’s why I intro'd #medicarebuyin w @RepJoeCourtney & @RepBrianHiggins , which would give Americans ages 50-64 the ability to buy-into Medicare as a quality, affordable coverage option. Learn more here: https://t.co/w08xnBjBHK

The #trumpbudget is paid for on the backs of seniors & America's most vulnerable, w/ its proposed cuts to social safety net programs. I hope that POTUS doesn’t repeat the GOP trick of giving tax cuts to the wealthy & then say we don’t have $ for pgrms essential to every day ppl

The #trumpbudget proposal to nix national service programs like #americorps is unacceptable. We should be enhancing & expanding these programs. Less than 1% of our nation is serving in the military & all national service pgrms. A nation can’t long survive if less than 1% serve.

“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory... will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” HBD President Lincoln https://t.co/eRL51uKT5I

I voted in favor of the bipartisan funding bill today as it provides critical funding for Community Health Centers, Puerto Rico, veterans, and it supports our military amongst other vital measures. Read my full statement here: https://t.co/QAKN9dlCo2

This shutdown falls squarely on the shoulders of egotists like Senator Rand Paul. He threw a wrench in the bipartisan budget deal. We have a responsibility to govern, not play political games. I call on all my colleagues to do the responsible thing and re-open the government.
