An accessible America is a better America. When the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law—on this day in 1990—America became better. It gave people the opportunity to determine their own future. pic.twitter.com/njfVy9CNoS

Today marks the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act — a landmark bill I proudly cosponsored in the Senate. While we celebrate the incredible progress we’ve made toward meeting the full aspirations of the ADA, we must recommit to the work that remains.

Americans have over $ 140 BILLION in medical debt — double what was previously known.
Because of our broken, for-profit health care system, people are drowning in debt just for getting sick.
Let’s solve this crisis once and for all with Medicare for All.

Thinking of this response from 2019 again today after reading about all the Americans not getting vaccinated because they don’t trust the government.
I’m also thinking again about how Finland’s basic income experiment showed increased trust as one of the many positive results. https://t.co/D7lQiYTWZI

I do not think I am making a radical statement when I say that it’s working class Americans, not billionaires who pay zero in federal income taxes, who need the help of their government. That’s what I’m focused on.

For most Americans, paying your taxes is your contribution to schools, roads, and bridges that everyone uses. For the ultra-rich, it’s a nuisance to be avoided at all costs.
It’s time for a fair system, for everyone. To start, it’s time for a wealth tax.
