“Net neutrality is essential to a free and open internet. Repealing net neutrality pads the pockets of big corporations at the expense of consumers and small businesses. Congress has the power to overturn the FCC’s disastrous decision and we should do so now.”

February 15, 2018 Press Release
“Weakening the Americans with Disabilities Act is yet another Republican attack on our family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers with disabilities. Just as they did with cuts to Medicaid for people with disabilities, Republicans are once again demonstrating the cruelty of their backwards agenda."

February 9, 2018 Press Release
“The severity of the Porter scandal demands President Trump to immediately fire White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Mr. Kelly has jeopardized national security by allowing his subordinate, White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter — who was never granted a permanent security clearance — to control the President of the United States’ most highly classified documents. Mr. Kelly empowered and defended a domestic abuser in a highly sensitive role despite evidence from the FBI that he could not receive a security clearance."
