No infrastructure bill should pass without a $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill. That is the agreement that was made & that is the agreement that must be kept. Physical infrastructure is important, but the needs of working families & combatting climate change is more important.

Aging in America ought to mean aging with dignity. And right now, aging with dignity is very, very difficult for far too many of our elderly people. Let us realize the original goal and vision of Medicare and expand it to include dental, vision, and hearing care.

18 million people in this country have reported being unable to fill a prescription because they couldn't afford the cost.

Please do not tell me we do not need to take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry and dramatically lower the cost of prescription drugs. https://t.co/1ZappyWHPe

The ruling class in this country is very, very religious. Their religion is greed. And they are prepared to destroy the planet to make a few more dollars.

The good news is this: if we stand together in solidarity around a progressive agenda for working people, we can win. https://t.co/0nl4R7lTc2

If we were to judge a nation simply by how many millionaires and billionaires it's got, America would be number one — no question — but a great nation is judged by how well it treats its weakest and most vulnerable. We must fight to become a nation of compassion and solidarity.

Under our reconciliation bill, seniors would pay lower prices for prescriptions while receiving hearing, vision and dental care, AND we lower prescription drug costs for all Americans.

It's insane that we have to fight for these obvious steps. But here we are. And fight we must.

The Republican Party, who added $7.8 TRILLION to the national debt under President Trump, wants you all to believe they are very, VERY serious about the national debt now that we are going to be taxing the wealthy to help the working class of this country.

It should not be a luxury in the richest country on the planet to get paid time off to spend with your newborn baby.

Pop quiz. Just a few years ago, how many Republicans objected to spending trillions of dollars on tax breaks for billionaires and corporations? ZERO.

Today, how many Republicans object to spending trillions to benefit the working class of this country? ALL OF'EM. Pathetic.

In the midst of massive labor shortages in many parts of the country, creating a strong childcare system is truly a no-brainer.

Let's finally make child care affordable in this country.
Let's finally make pre-K for 3- and 4-year-olds free.
Let's finally invest in the children.

Adding dental, vision and hearing benefits to Medicare is supported by 84% of the American people.
It is supported by 89% of Democrats.
It is supported by 79% of Republicans.
This is what the American people want.
This is what we must deliver to them.

To my mind, it is a bit embarrassing that our great country is the only major country on the planet not to guarantee paid family and medical leave.

Let us pass the reconciliation bill and finally put an end to that international embarrassment once and for all.

In America, elderly people should not be walking around without teeth in their mouth and not be able to afford to go to a dentist.

Should we tell young people of this country, 'sorry, taking on the crisis of climate change just isn't that important'? 
Should we tell working families, 'sorry, we're not going to make child care affordable'?

$3.5 trillion IS the compromise. Let's get this done.

Why is it that the people of Canada can purchase a vial of insulin for around $12, while just 2 miles away in Detroit, Americans are charged $98.70?

I'll tell you why — because we are the only major country which does not negotiate drug prices. Those days are coming to an end. https://t.co/TqTSX5FZup

There are many Americans who have lost faith in their government's ability to pay attention to their needs and their everyday struggle just to get by.

Are we going to prove their disillusionment right? Or are we going to have the guts to invest in them after decades of neglect?

It is no great secret that in America, it is not the United States Congress that regulates the pharmaceutical industry.

Every day in America, people go to their doctor because they are sick. They get a diagnosis from their doctor. But they can't afford to pay for the prescriptions they need to get well. Then they get even sicker.

Does that make any sense to anyone?
