Since then, we have taken meaningful steps forward from making COVID-19 PPE, tests, and vaccines widely available to creating 7.4 million jobs since the president entered office. Much of what the president proposed and accomplished is historic. Here is a break... Read more

Republican state legislatures around the country continue to pass partisan laws that make it harder for Americans to access the ballot box by limiting popular practices such as early voting and voting by mail, and taking over who administers elections. It is our responsibility in Congress to enshrine voter protections by ensuring every American can voice their opinion and that elected officials respect that decision. In ... Read more
