At a time when voting rights are being rolled back, the Freedom to Vote Act would strengthen our democracy and give more Americans a voice. That’s why the Senate should do the right thing and protect what so many generations fought so hard to secure.

In a period of unprecedented economic change & technological disruption, we should acknowledge millions of Americans will need a new way to meet basic needs & a pathway to stand on. Majority of Americans are for universal basic income. https://t.co/ISSHtvtRVA#ForwardParty #UBI https://t.co/btqvCzt1Bq

We spend nearly $ 20 billion every year in oil & gas subsidies, and $ 720 billion (and rising) every year on the defense budget.
How then is $ 350 billion per year to help working Americans get by, and to save our planet, too much? It’s less than 2% of our GDP.

Democrats need to make the economic argument. Build Back Better tackles inflation, creates opportunity, builds manufacturing capacity, spurs growth, and enhances the freedom of Americans to pursue good jobs, entrepreneurship, and the American dream. https://t.co/hxSVB9cfuU

In 2020 the major parties spent $ 2.65 billion just on trying to defeat each other in the Congressional races. A lot of that money obviously canceled each other out. They could have given $ 1,000 to 2.65 million Americans.

Investment is followed by innovation, jobs, and wealth, and too much of all of those are being consolidated along our coasts.
We must empower rural Americans to participate in the high tech economy — that’s exactly what my Endless Frontier Act does.
