We can keep winning races and electing progressives around the country, but we need your help. Join our  #SummerOfAction and sign up to make calls today! https://berniesanders.com/july-solidarity/?source=tw200711

This month the Senate will vote on my amendment to cut the Pentagon's bloated $740 billion budget and invest in housing, health care, education and jobs in distressed communities here at home. I thank  @Chuck Schumer for his support for this amendment and securing a vote on it.

I fought alongside  @Bernie Sanders to ensure a Senate vote in July on his amendment to reduce $740B defense budget 10% We'll put the money to priorities like health care, housing, childcare in communities with 25%+ poverty, including many communities of color Proudly support it

Trump rejects science on COVID-19. And thousands unnecessarily die. Trump rejects science on climate change. And the very future of the planet is at stake. We cannot continue a government which rejects science. This November, we must come together and reject Trump.

Here's something we don't discuss much. Life expectancy is in direct correlation to income. If you're rich you're likely to live a much longer and healthier life than if you're poor. Poverty kills. Our job: build a health care system and economy that work for all, not just a few.

Sign up to join our day of action on Saturday! Let’s continue the political revolution and expand our movement by electing strong progressive candidates across the country. https://berniesanders.com/july-solidarity/?source=tw200710

Our job: put as much pressure as possible on Republican leaders to take action to help the American people right now.

Senator Sanders has never forgotten that Congress is supposed to serve people, not corporations -- and that families struggling to afford healthcare, working class Americans, and those who our political system ignores deserve a voice. I’m honored and truly humbled.

As someone who grew up in poverty, @JulieOliverTX knows the struggle working Texans face each and every day. The people of Texas’ 25th Congressional District need Julie fighting for them in Congress, and I’m proud to support her grassroots campaign.

Jane and I are deeply saddened to hear that Pamela Sue Rush has passed away. I will always carry with me what she showed us. She was a mother, an activist and an unyielding spirit. She will be deeply missed. But, as I promised, I will make sure her story is never forgotten.

Raw sewage drains into Pamela Rush's backyard. Her children are exposed to mold. She still owes $15,000 on her mobile home.

Systemic injustices trap millions of people like Pamela in poverty. Our mission is to find them a way out.

She passed away from Covid on July 3rd. Let’s remove the injustice and structures that trapped her.

Y'all, I am beyond words!
I first met Bernie because he showed up right here in WV. Even though he was surrounded by press & politicians, he made a point to sit & listen to this coal miner's daughter. Sincere thanks for your compassion & support @BernieSanders!

.@paulajean2020 will be a senator who stands up to the political and economic establishment, puts the working class first, and fights to guarantee health care as a human right. I’m proud to endorse her grassroots campaign and I hope the people of West Virginia will support her.

I don’t have to tell anybody that these are really crazy times. 

But we cannot lose sight of the fact that we have a global climate crisis. 

And we cannot allow Congress to pass an outrageous $740 billion defense budget while neglecting the needs of our people.

While  @Joe Biden and I, and our supporters, have strong disagreements about some of the most important issues facing our country, we also understand that we must come together in order to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history. 1/3

BREAKING:  @Joe Biden &  @Bernie Sanders 6 policy task forces have released a hefty list of recommendations for the party's nominee &  @Democratic Party platform committee to consider. Details on the united effort to coalesce voters provided first to  @NBC News w/  @Mike Memoli https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/democratic-task-forces-send-biden-progressive-policy-...

Let’s keep up the momentum for progressive candidates running across the country! Sign up to join our Summer of Action and make calls for  @Rashida Tlaib,  @Cori Bush,  @Pramila Jayapal and more this Saturday: https://berniesanders.com/july-solidarity?source=tw200708

Should decisions on health care be determined by the patient? Or, should they be controlled by the whims of the employer? Today's Supreme Court decision makes it clear why health care is a human right, not an employee benefit, and why we must pass Medicare for All.

Grateful for you  @Bernie Sanders! I'm looking forward to continuing to work with you on the critical issues that will help working families everywhere!

Congratulations to @Bonnie4Congress for winning her primary last night. I look forward to continue working with her in Congress to fight for working people across New Jersey and the entire country.

Congratulations to  @Bonnie Watson Coleman for winning her primary last night. I look forward to continue working with her in Congress to fight for working people across New Jersey and the entire country.

Patients’ ability to get contraception shouldn’t be up to employers. It should be a decision between patients and their doctors. Health care—including birth control—is a right, not an employee benefit. We must fight Trump’s rollback of these rights by passing Medicare for All.

This economic crisis is not ending soon. Tens of millions of people have lost their jobs. They should not lose their housing too. There must be an immediate, nationwide moratorium on evictions, foreclosures, and utility shut-offs.

It's always unacceptable for the U.S. to have more people in jail than any country on Earth, but especially so during a pandemic. During this crisis we must keep people out of jail who shouldn't be there and continue our fight to end mass incarceration. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/02/opinion/coronavirus-jail.html

Trump may not understand it, but high-quality masks, distributed to every American household and produced in the U.S. through the Defense Production Act, will save many thousands of lives. I am fighting for that amendment in the Defense Authorization Act.

New Jersey: remember to vote today and cast your ballot for @Bonnie4Congress and @Arati4Congress. Let’s send these strong progressives to the U.S. House. Find the voting information you need here:

Trump's pathological lying never stops. While he continues to tell us how great the "recovery" is doing, the pandemic surges and millions face hunger, eviction and loss of health care. Together, we'll defeat Trump. Together, we'll move this country in a very different direction.

The temperature in Siberia is 100 degrees, wildfires are raging there and sea ice is melting. In the midst of all the other crises we face, we cannot forget climate change. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency and sustainable energy. Now!

Congratulations to the many Native Americans and advocates who struggled to defeat this terrible pipeline, which should never have been built. We must end our dependence on fossil fuels and stop putting corporate profits over Native American rights. The struggle continues.

Politicians and the corporate media won't discuss it much but over the past 30 years the wealth of the top 1% has gone up by $22.65 trillion, while the wealth of the bottom 50% has gone down by $776 billion. This growing wealth inequality is a moral obscenity.

We need to stop bipartisan support for a bloated military budget. While defense contractors make huge profits and we spend more on the military than the next 11 nations combined, doctors and nurses lack masks to help us fight COVID-19. Insane priorities.
