iPhone : This National Blood Donor Month, I’m still fighting to end the U.S. FDA’s outdated & discriminatory blood donation ban for gay & bisexual men. Blood donor restrictions should be based on science & risk, not sexual orientation. bostonglobe.com/metro/2016/06/…

Twitter Web App : .Geoffrey Supran is right: obtaining fossil fuel corporate documents is “one of the most important actions Congress could take to address the climate crisis.” The House must act.

Twitter Web App : My housing bill will invest in 3M new housing units, bring down rents by 10%, & start to close the Black-white wealth gap caused by decades of housing discrimination. I’m grateful that @Marty_Walsh, Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer, & mayors across MA support this bill. commonwealthmagazine.org/opinion/as-may…

Twitter Web App : I’m very glad to see Mayor @Marty_Walsh announce bold action to tackle the housing crisis in Boston head-on. The federal govt needs to be a strong partner to cities like Boston that are fighting for more affordable housing for all of our families. wbur.org/news/2020/01/0…

Twitter Web App : It’s shameful that when housing discrimination is still rampant, Donald J. Trump & Ben Carson want to gut civil rights laws like the Fair Housing Act. It’s time to confront the legacy of govt-backed housing discrimination & fight to reverse it. curbed.com/2020/1/6/21051…

Twitter Web App : Access to safe drinking water is a basic human right, but millions of Americans – especially communities of color – have tap water that violates federal standards. I’m fighting for much-needed investments in our country’s drinking water infrastructure & so should the President.

Twitter Web App : Dangerous PFAS chemicals in our drinking water threaten the health of families in MA & across the country. It’s disgusting that the President would even consider vetoing Rep. Debbie Dingell & Senator Tom Carper’s bipartisan bill to clean up PFAS-contaminated sites. newsweek.com/white-house-an…

Twitter Web App : I'm concerned by reports that Iranian Americans & others of Iranian heritage were detained at the border or denied entry into the US. I've got questions for CBP. twitter.com/sdooling/statu…

Twitter Web App : Puerto Rico was struggling long before last night’s earthquake & long before hurricanes devastated the island. Congress must pass my bill with Rep. Nydia Velazquez to provide Puerto Rico a path to comprehensive debt relief so they can get back on their feet. masslive.com/politics/2018/…

Twitter Web App : My thoughts are with the people of Puerto Rico as they recover from a series of terrible earthquakes. We will fight to hold the Trump administration accountable so the island’s residents receive the support & respect they need to recover. nbcnews.com/news/latino/6-…

iPhone : The rise in anti-Semitism & horrific attacks like those in Monsey, NY have no place in our country. On #JewishandProud Day we reaffirm our solidarity with Jewish communities in MA & beyond & stand together against all forms of bigotry & hate.

Twitter Web App : The IRS has no more excuses to create its own Free File program. My bill with Rep. Brad Sherman would let millions of Americans simply sign & return a pre-filled tax form, & finally require the IRS to create a free online tax prep & filing service. vox.com/2016/4/13/1141…

Twitter Web App : I’m glad that the IRS is reforming the Free File program to ban tax prep companies' worst tricks & allow the IRS compete with them. But the IRS should’ve gone further to ensure that the millions of eligible taxpayers are truly able to file their taxes free of charge.

Twitter Web App : For more than 5 years, I’ve pushed to replace the broken IRS Free File program that has let giant companies trick taxpayers into paying for services that should be free. Persistence works. propublica.org/article/irs-re…

Twitter Media Studio : Since 2015 I’ve said the #IranDeal was the best option to peacefully prevent a nuclear-armed Iran & prevent another war. But the President’s reckless actions have led Iran to totally scrap the deal & brought us closer to a war.

Twitter Web App : We should be expanding the services of the U.S. Postal Service – not privatizing it. I've spent years fighting for postal banking to provide basic banking services like savings accounts for millions of underserved Americans. usnews.com/opinion/articl…

Twitter Web App : Washington has looked the other way while private equity firms have gutted companies, hurt workers, & drained our economy. That’s why my bill to #StopWallStreetLooting would fundamentally change the private equity industry. vox.com/the-goods/2020…

Twitter Web App : The 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years.

2020 is our turning point. We must fight for a new climate democracy – of the people, by the people, for the planet. Let us usher in the era of the #GreenNewDeal.

iPhone : Wishing everyone in Massachusetts, across the country, & around the world a safe & happy New Year’s celebration! I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to keep fighting alongside you.
