February 12, 2018 Press Release
“The Trump administration’s infrastructure proposal is wholly inadequate to the task of rebuilding and modernizing our crumbling roads, bridges, waterways, and energy systems."
January 20, 2018 Press Release
“President Donald Trump and the Republicans have total control of Washington, but have consistently refused to work with Democrats to fund the federal government or address a long list of urgent national priorities. As we reach the one-year anniversary of the Trump presidency, tonight's government shutdown demonstrates the real consequences of the chaos emanating from an incompetent White House and of Congressional Republicans’ complete failure to govern."
January 17, 2018 Press Release
"The Republican Party has total control of Washington. Yet instead of fulfilling their responsibility to fund the government, President Trump and the Republicans wasted the last four months on their tax scam. Because they haven’t done their jobs, Republicans now tell us that we need to kick the can down the road again. Minnesotans and Americans deserve better."
March 16, 2017 Press Release
Minnesota cities, counties, and nonprofits will all feel the devastating effects of President Donald Trump’s backwards budget. With these harsh cuts — and the outright elimination of many programs — the Trump administration is abandoning our communities and our state. This budget shifts to Minnesota taxpayers the burden for keeping our state safe, strong, and moving forward.

“On Monday, Labor Day, we celebrate the success of America’s working men and women, past and present, who built our great country and created a strong middle class.

May 10, 2016 Press Release

The Treasury Department’s rejection of a proposed plan to cut retirement benefits to over 400,000 workers and retirees of the Teamsters’ Central States Pension Fund provides Congress needed time to fix this problem and stabilize this fund. With the retirement security of 22,000 Minnesotans on the line I don’t want to see promises broken or retirees forced into poverty.
