Press Releases

November 17, 2017 Press Release
“The Trump administration’s latest supplemental request is woefully inadequate. I am appalled that the Trump administration wants to make people suffering in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands wait even longer to rebuild their homes and lives. The request also fails Florida, Texas, and those impacted by the wildfires in California. Our fellow Americans deserve better."
November 16, 2017 Press Release
“The Trump-GOP tax scam singles out Minnesotans for higher taxes by ending the state and local tax deduction, punishes people with high medical bills by eliminating the medical expense deduction, and even makes it harder for students and families to pay for college. This bill will explode the federal debt, guaranteeing that Republicans will move forward with cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and eventually Social Security."
November 16, 2017 Press Release
“The Senate Ethics Committee should conduct a formal inquiry into the disturbing allegations made against Senator Franken. The account and photo released today can only be described as completely inappropriate.”

November 2, 2017 Press Release
“As expected, House Republicans’ idea of tax reform is to force working families in Minnesota and across the United States to pay for a massive giveaway to billionaires, CEOs, and big corporations. Their bill hands the wealthiest Americans hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, slashes taxes on big corporations, and helps heirs and heiresses dodge taxes entirely."
October 30, 2017 Press Release
“The criminal charges against President Donald Trump’s top campaign aides confirm that illegal activity and unethical behavior proliferated in the President’s inner circle. Our worst fears about President Trump and his associates’ poor judgment and bad intentions have once again been confirmed."
