Twitter Web Client : No one can deny that today’s minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is nothing more than a starvation wage. After 10 years of inaction, it’s time to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Doing so would directly benefit over 41 million workers across the nation.

Twitter Web Client : Yesterday was a historic day. People all across the country woke up to our role in the horrific Saudi-led intervention in Yemen. We made it clear that the U.S. must rethink our relationship with the despotic Saudi regime. commondreams.org/news/2018/12/1…

Twitter Web Client : Thank you to all the people at the grassroots level throughout our country who helped us win this major vote on the path toward ending U.S. involvement in the horrific Saudi-led intervention in Yemen. wsj.com/articles/senat…

Twitter Web Client : In the last three years, 85,000 children have died and millions are on the brink of starvation. We must tell Saudi Arabia that the United States will no longer support their despotic regime's role in the horrific war in Yemen.

Twitter Web Client : The time is long overdue for the United States to stop following the lead of Saudi Arabia. The Senate must reassert its constitutional authority and vote today to end our support for this unauthorized, unconstitutional, and disastrous Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Twitter Web Client : We must extend the concept of public education beyond the 12th grade and make public colleges and universities tuition-free. Every young person, regardless of the income of his or her family, should have the opportunity to attend college.

TweetDeck : During his campaign, Trump repeatedly promised the American people that “the rich will not be gaining at all” from his tax plan and that it would provide a “big-league” tax cut for the middle class. He lied.

TweetDeck : The war in Yemen has displaced more than 3 million, brought 14 million to the brink of famine, and killed more than 16,000 civilians. The United States cannot continue supporting the disastrous Saudi-led war in this country.

TweetDeck : For every man, woman, and child in this country - regardless of income, race, gender, or zip code - health care must be recognized as a right, not a privilege.

TweetDeck : The Obama rule was designed to limit pollution in about 60 percent of the nation’s bodies of water, protecting sources of drinking water for about a third of the United States. Trump’s new rule puts the profits of polluters over the American people.

TweetDeck : After releasing a report that clearly states our need to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels and reduce carbon emissions, Trump’s EPA pick, Andrew Wheeler, is rolling back regulations that would help us accomplish just that.

TweetDeck : Activists in Michigan collected 400,000 signatures on two separate petitions to put the minimum wage increase and paid sick leave on the ballot this November.

Republicans' decision to undermine the will of the people is disgraceful and undemocratic.

TweetDeck : Steps to creating a vibrant democracy:

✅expand voter registration
✅expand voter turnout
✅overturn Citizens United
✅restore the Voting Rights Act
✅fight gerrymandering

TweetDeck : Climate change is real, it is caused by human activity, and it is already causing devastating harm here in the United States and across the globe. The fight for the future of the planet is the fight of our lifetime.
