Communities across America continue to face environmental and public health threats that for too long have gone unaddressed. These communities are often communities of color or indigenous communities, and they tend to be low-income. We should all be outraged. I’ve introduced a bill that is an important step in fixing this unacceptable reality. We cannot have social justice or economic justice without environmental justice.

Overuse of antibiotics with livestock has contributed to increasing levels of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, resulting in “one of the biggest emerging threats to human health, spreading resistance to vital drugs and endangering millions of lives.” I’ve co-sponsored legislation, called the Preventing Antibiotic Resistance Act, that will reduce the overuse of medically-important antibiotics in agriculture in the US. Not only to does Congress need to pass this bill, but we need to do more globally to address this growing crisis that is putting millions of lives in danger.

The Children’s Health Insurance Program known as “CHIP” is a vital program that covers millions of children -- but in September, Republicans in Congress let it expire while it continued to pursue its failed Trumpcare efforts. Since its creation 20 years ago, this program has produced dramatic results, driving down the percentage of our children in America that do not have health coverage from about 14% down to 5%. We need to reinstate this program immediately before states run out of funds to provide for millions of American kids. Please, call Congress and demand that we reinstate CHIP: (202) 224-3121

Today’s vote to completely gut net neutrality protections is an outrageous assault on a fair and open internet. Creating fast lanes and slow lanes on the internet will stifle innovation and undermine the democratizing power of the internet. Net neutrality isn’t just a tech issue – it’s a small business issue, it’s an education issue, it’s a health issue – and it’s not a luxury. All Americans should have equal access – free from blocking or discrimination – to online content, platforms, and websites. The fight isn’t over. I’ll continue to push for a legislative solution that will protect consumers. Mark my words, this decision will not last. Save #NetNeutrality.

Congress must do what it can to ensure that Special Counsel Robert Mueller can continue his investigation without interference from the president. I don’t believe any administration that is under investigation itself should be able to fire the special counsel conducting the investigation—and right now, that is an unfortunate reality we are potentially facing as political attacks against Mueller continue to escalate. I’ve introduced a bill that offers commonsense protections to ensure the special counsel is not terminated unjustly. This is an important bill not just for this moment in history but going forward to future administrations.

Many people don’t know that the company (one of America’s largest privately owned companies) traces its roots and origins back to the South Ward of Newark, New Jersey. In fact, the M&M candy was invented in Newark. I am so pleased by this news and proud to have played a roll in their return along with many others. Welcome back home Mars!

CHIP is an incredible program that helps some of our most vulnerable and underserved children throughout our country, providing health care coverage for nearly 9 million American children who live in low-to-moderate income households. And the results are clear -- the uninsured rate for children has decreased from 14% to 5% since the program was created in 1997. It’s been several months since CHIP lost its funding, and now states are increasingly at risk of not being able to make payments. Please call your members of Congress and demand that CHIP funding be immediately extended: (202) 224-3121

Over the summer, as part of the standard Congressional vetting process for high-level Presidential appointments, I questioned Singapore ambassador nominee K.T. McFarland in writing about whether she had ever spoken to Michael Flynn about his contacts with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, in her capacity on the presidential transition team or as deputy national security advisor. Her response to me was, "I am not aware of any of the issues or events described above." This is deeply problematic. According to the New York Times, "An email exchange obtained by The New York Times indicates that Ms. McFarland was aware at the time of a crucial Dec. 29 phone call between Mr. Flynn and Mr. Kislyak that was intercepted by American intelligence. During that call, Mr. Flynn urged Moscow to respond cautiously to sanctions just imposed by the Obama administration for Russia’s interference in the presidential election." This suggests that Ms. McFarland gave false testimony to me and the United States Senate on a matter as significant as communications between the Russian government and the Trump transition team. This is an alarming development, and another example of a pattern of deception on the part of Trump’s closest associates regarding their connections and communications to Russian government officials.

Senator Angus King (who has an awesome Instagram account @anguskingmaine - follow him) shared this with me today. This tax bill is not targeted to the middle class or low income earners. About a trillion dollars of the 1.4 trillion dollar bill go to the wealthiest people and corporations. Republicans are pushing the myth that somehow this will raise wages and benefits to middle income workers. This is obviously a fallacy. Right now corporate profits are at an 80-year high but wages have been stagnant for over a decade. Moreover, most corporate profits - 80 to 90% - have been going to stock buy backs and dividends not worker pay. The bill is not law yet. It still must go through a conference with the House and Senate, and then back to both bodies for a final vote. Please take action to stop this bill. Call your Senator and representative and let them know how you feel. 202 224 3121.

Republicans continue to abuse an obscure law called the Congressional Review Act (CRA) in order to quickly rollback Obama-era protections, with little notice or public debate, using a simple majority vote. This law had previously been used only once before—back in 1996—but since President Trump took office it has targeted 31 rules in order to take away protections that benefit everyday Americans in order to reward special interests and big corporations at the expense of consumers, working families, and the environment. Earlier this year, I introduced legislation with Senator Tom Udall to end this damaging practice, but it needs your support. Please call Congress and demand the repeal of the CRA: (202) 224-3121

This decision means that those financial advisors more concerned with their bottom line than with helping customers will now have 18 more months to ignore new consumer-friendly rules that protect Americans’ retirement savings from bad investment advice and hidden fees. This new delay is on top of a six-month delay in enforcement of the conflict of interest rule announced earlier this year. Enough is enough. It’s time to finally enforce these rules and ensure that every financial advisor prioritizes their clients' interests over their own.

This bill is an outrage. The idea that slashing taxes for the wealthiest Americans and big corporations will somehow magically result in more money and increased wages for the middle class is pure folly. Instead of a thoughtfully crafted, bipartisan plan that will truly lift wages and cut taxes for all Americans, Republicans have jammed through a disastrous proposal that lavishes tax cuts on corporations and the wealthiest and raises taxes on everyday Americans. In this perverse plan, the people who need a tax cut the least end up with the most, and those who truly need a tax cut get taken for a ride. We’ve heard the tired, bogus argument that giving a trillion dollar tax cut to corporations will somehow ‘trickle down’ to workers. But that fallacy has been disproven time and again. Look no further than what major companies have said they’re going to do with their windfall: give more payouts to shareholders, not raise wages for workers. My colleagues across the aisle should take a hard look in the mirror and ask themselves – honestly – who they are fighting for: their wealthy donors or working Americans? We’ve already proven that we can be a nation that creates great wealth and opportunity. Our challenge now is to be a nation that creates great wealth and opportunity for all. This bill fails that challenge miserably. In the days and weeks to come, I’ll do everything I possibly can to ensure this embarrassment of a bill never becomes law.

The nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation reported that the Senate Republicans' tax plan -- which we could be voting on in a matter of hours -- would add more than $1 trillion to our federal deficit over the next decade, even after economic growth is taken into account. To recap: this bill hands out trillion dollar tax cuts to the biggest corporations and wealthiest individuals while raising taxes on households making less than $75,000. And now, the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation reports that we’re going to explode the deficit to do it. The Republican tax plan is a disgrace, but it stands a real chance of passing in the Senate. Regardless of how tonight's Senate vote shakes out, this fight will not be over. We must all continue to speak out against this disastrous tax plan and prevent it from ever becoming law.
