Date Title
10/19/2020 Tweet - "A federal judge struck down the Trump administration's attempt to eliminate food assistance for nearly 700,000 people. I am proud to have filed two amicus briefs with @HouseDemocrats to fight this vile attempt to put so many Americans at risk of hunger."
10/15/2020 Tweet - "8 million Americans have fallen into poverty since May as federal aid has run out. House Democrats passed the Heroes Act twice to provide relief to struggling Americans. It's time for Mitch McConnell to pass legislation that meets the significant needs of American families."
10/13/2020 Tweet - "In 2019, Black infants born in South Carolina were nearly 3x as likely as White babies to die before their first birthday. The Trump administration wants the Supreme Court to strike down the ACA, which would only worsen these racial health disparities."
10/13/2020 Tweet - "There is an affordability crisis when it comes to internet access in America, and the current pandemic only makes it worse. The House passed comprehensive legislation to expand access to affordable, high-speed internet. The Senate has taken it nowhere."

10/07/2020 Tweet - "New @TrevorProject survey: 60% of Black LGBTQ youth respondents who wanted mental health care were not able to get it, with over half citing affordability as the reason.

10/02/2020 Tweet - "We have 4% of the world's population, but 20% of the world's coronavirus deaths. I urge the Trump Administration to put partisan politics and ideology aside, embrace our nation's long history of science, and finally show the leadership we need to get this pandemic under control."
10/01/2020 Tweet - "Today we remember the innocent lives that were lost 3 years ago during a mass shooting in Las Vegas. We cannot continue to ignore gun violence in this country. We must pass common sense gun violence legislation into law so we prevent tragedies like this from happening again."

09/24/2020 Tweet - "Today we wear orange masks to urge @senatemajldr McConnell to take up legislation to help end gun violence. The House passed #HR8 575 days ago and #HR1112, my bill to close the Charleston Loophole, one day later. It is time for @SenateGOP to act."
09/23/2020 Tweet - "We just passed the tragic milestone of 200,000 COVID-19 deaths in America. I urge my colleagues on both sides to seek meaningful solutions to help the millions of Americans still struggling through this crisis--solutions based on science and economics, not politics or ideology."
