Exactly. Childcare is core to our Nation’s economic infrastructure. We must treat is as such and pass Sen  @Senator Patty Murray’s Child Care is Essential Act and my Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit Enhancement Act to make child care more accessible & affordable for working families.

#OTD 56 years ago, the #CivilRightsAct became law. Today, we are witnessing a demand for justice that echoes the fights of that era as Americans march across our Nation—and it's our moral imperative that we meet the moment.

Next up: passing the Justice in Policing Act.

Just wear a mask whenever you're out. It's not hard, and it's one of the most effective things you can do to keep yourself and others safe.

Wearing a mask shows:

1. Compassion - the person near you could have, or care for someone with, an underlying health complication.
2. Humility - you could be asymptomatic.
3. Community - mitigating COVID helps us all. TOGETHER, we will beat this virus.

#MaskUp with @SenateDems!

The Trump Administration and Republicans in Congress want to sabotage affordable health care for our families, but I won't stand for it. During  #COVID19 and always, I'll fight like hell against any efforts to repeal the ACA and end Medicaid expansion. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/republicans-are-biting-the-democrats-helping-hand/2020/07/01...

It's unconscionable this Administration is making it HARDER to get health care during a pandemic. Congress should immediately take up my Coronavirus Medicaid Response Act, which will speed federal aid to states providing vital  #Medicaid services to those hit hardest by  #COVID19.

Imagine thinking this—let alone saying it—on July 1, 2020.

Trump ludicrously claimed to Fox Business just now that "I think we're gonna be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear, I hope." (The virus will not disappear on its own.)

.@ratemyskyperoom, I know you’ve been disappointed by my book placement before... thoughts?

The vast majority of U.S. counties with the highest rates of food insecurity are rural. Attempts by Republicans to undermine  #SNAP would disproportionately hurt these Americans – and taking food off the table won’t help anyone fight this virus.  #HandsOffSNAP  #BoostSNAPNow

The #COVID19 crisis is exacerbating hunger in communities across the country. Increasing #SNAP benefits isn't part of some @SenateDems "ideological wish list" as the Senate R's have said. It's an essential response to this public health crisis. #BoostSNAPNow

A new report from @SenateDems shows more than 40% of #COVID19 deaths have been among residents and workers in long-term care facilities. As we know, @POTUS has said “I don't take responsibility at all."

VP Pence in WSJ just 2 weeks ago: “Such panic is overblown..we are winning the fight against the invisible enemy." They’re not this naive. This ignorance is intentional. DC Rs are putting lives at risk so they can continue to pretend "everything is fine." https://apnews.com/32cb14de009bfff91bc76a967323c621

It's  #NationalPostalWorkerDay but this Administration wants to reward these front-line heroes by raising postal prices & undermining a critical agency at a time when  #VoteByMail is vital to ensuring safe elections. Voting by mail is secure, and  #USPS is here to stay.  #MailedIt

@Senator Bob Casey  @Senator Gary Peters and I just released a report detailing the Trump administration’s failure to protect seniors in nursing homes from  #COVID19. Donald Trump must be held accountable for failing to act as thousands of seniors died in this crisis. https://www.aging.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/COVID-19%20in%20Nursing%20Homes%20Final%20Report.pdf

Oklahoma voters showed exactly how important health care is by voting for Medicaid expansion—and how destructive their Republican leaders are in trying to block affordable health care options in the middle of a pandemic. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/01/oklahoma-expand-medicaid-pandemic-346681

According to a new report from @SenBobCasey, the Trump Admin delayed funding and guidance for states on nursing home oversight measures —leading to the #NursingHomeCrisis and over 54,000 unnecessary deaths.
