Date Title
04/19/2021 Tweet - "Something is wrong with us accepting the fact that just because you put on a gun & a badge, nothing else matters. That it makes you a saint & you are to be treated that way. That has to come to an end. I hope this verdict will start us on that journey."
04/19/2021 Tweet - "In order to truly close the #digitaldivide, we must make high-speed broadband internet accessible and affordable for all Americans. Listen as I join @drturnerlee and @MignonClyburn on @BrookingsInst's #TechTank podcast."
04/16/2021 Tweet - "We are witnessing an epidemic of police brutality & killings in this country. Adam Toledo, Daunte Wright, George Floyd, and so many others should still be alive today. The job of the police is to serve and PROTECT. This is why we must enact the Justice in Policing Act into law."
04/16/2021 Tweet - "As essential workers remain on the frontlines protecting Americans from the ongoing pandemic, we must ensure their safety is prioritized. The Workplace Violence Prevention Act strengthens OSHA standards to better protect our health care & social workers' safety in the workplace."
04/16/2021 Tweet - "This morning Americans are waking up to news of yet another mass shooting. My heart goes out to the friends and family of the victims, but we need more than thoughts & prayers. It's time for the Senate to send House-passed gun violence prevention bills to the President's desk."
04/16/2021 Tweet - "We must continue to wear masks and avoid crowds until all Americans have had an opportunity to be fully vaccinated. And we must overcome vaccine hesitancy so that all Americans benefit from these life-saving scientific breakthroughs."
04/16/2021 Tweet - "In the beginning of the internet, we called it the information highway. I'd like to see that become a part of our infrastructure. Broadband access is going to be key to rural America in the 21st century, just like electricity was key to rural America in the 20th century."
04/15/2021 Tweet - "1/3rd of the U.S. population has now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, & we are finally on a path to defeat this virus. However, we must ensure that vaccines are distributed equitably, and that black & brown, rural, and low-income communities are not left out."
04/15/2021 Tweet - "Due to the pandemic, tax day is May 17 this year, however, Americans will soon benefit from provisions of the #AmericanRescuePlan that begin to reverse inequities in the tax code. We must build on this progress & ensure that big corporations & the wealthy pay their fair share."
04/15/2021 Tweet - "It is absolutely inexcusable that in 2021, women still do not have equal pay. The Paycheck Fairness Act will finally fulfill the promise of #EqualPay. It's time we had equal pay for equal work. Period."
04/15/2021 Tweet - "When a scientist tells me that the research says it would be helpful to my comfort and wellbeing to take a vaccine, I'm going to take it. And I would urge my constituents and all others who may have any confidence in my opinion to please follow the scientists and get vaccinated."
04/14/2021 Tweet - "Why is it so important that you get a gun in 3 days? What's wrong with 10 days? We sometimes wait 30 days just to get something in the mail. This isn't about taking away guns. This is about keeping guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them."

04/11/2021 Tweet - "We recognize today's anniversary of the Fair Housing Act in the midst of a homelessness crisis exacerbated by #COVID19. The #AmericanRescuePlan will help keep Americans in their homes. We must continue our work to make high-quality housing accessible and affordable for all."
04/09/2021 Tweet - "I applaud the Biden-Harris Administration's funding request for endorsing my "10-20-30" plan, which targets investments in persistent poverty communities. I look forward to working with the Administration to expand opportunity in areas that have been neglected for far too long."
04/09/2021 Tweet - "Many Americans, especially those in rural areas, lack the ability to travel to get a COVID-19 vaccine. By bringing the vaccines to the people, we can ensure that we get shots in arms and make the progress needed to defeat this virus."
04/08/2021 Tweet - "We have to take the COVID-19 vaccine to the people. We are making progress in South Carolina, & I applaud @scdhec & Gov. @henrymcmaster for doing what's necessary to make that progress. It's my hope that my fellow members of Congress will do this in their communities as well."
04/08/2021 Tweet - "I applaud President Biden for taking action to #EndGunViolence. The House has sent two gun violence prevention bills to the Senate, including my bill to close the Charleston Loophole. We need the Senate to send these bills to the President's desk now."
