Dec. 8, 2017 Tweet - "Wages. Wages. Wages. Our focus must remain on ensuring that middle class Americans see the benefit of our strong economy. No one should pat themselves on the back until everyone is taking home more pay, not just those at the top. #JobsReport"

Dec. 7, 2017 Tweet - "Update: Congressional negotiators are making good headway on a budget deal that would meet our commitments to our military & urgent priorities here at home. I hope this progress continues but it's in stark contrast to @POTUS who again said yesterday: "a shutdown could happen."
Dec. 7, 2017 Tweet - "Nobody wants to see a shutdown. But without an agreement that covers defense AND economic development, programs to combat the opioid crisis, shore up pension plans, support veteran's health care, relieve student loan debt, and build rural infrastructure could see a cut."
Dec. 7, 2017 Tweet - "The #GOPTaxScam was muscled through Congress with such reckless haste; we're still finding errors & unintended consequences. Even GOP tax officials say so:"

Dec. 1, 2017 Tweet - "Tonight, I feel mostly regret at what could have been. Tax reform is an issue that is ripe for bipartisan compromise. There is a sincere desire on this side of the aisle to work with the GOP, particularly on tax reform, but we have been rebuffed, time & time again"
Nov. 30, 2017 Tweet - From the one-sidedness with which it was drafted to the reckless haste with which it was considered -- the #GOPTaxBill has failed to go through anything resembling the normal legislative process.
Nov. 30, 2017 Tweet - The American ppl are clamoring for us to work together. They believe our politics is broken. They think our politics is starved of common sense & compromise, and it is. The way the #GOPTaxBill is being rammed thru is exactly why the American ppl think our politics is so broken.
Nov. 30, 2017 Tweet - Until we see what the @SenateGOP's midnight rewrite looks like, let's go over what we know the #GOPTaxScam does so far: [thread]
Nov. 30, 2017 Tweet - The #GOPTaxBill will balloon the deficit by at least $1.5 TRILLION: adding to the debt burden borne by the next generation and diminishing our ability to support the military and invest in our schools, our roads, and in scientific research.
Nov. 30, 2017 Tweet - To be clear: the #GOPTaxBill will increase the deficit which will cannibalize support from everything we know is essential to economic growth & a strong middle class, including support for our men and women in uniform.
Nov. 30, 2017 Tweet - We will fight another day on the Senate GOP's tax bill. Your voices have been incredibly powerful, first on health care & now on tax reform. Don't give up now!
Nov. 29, 2017 Tweet - Mr. President, if your wealthy friends don't know about all the breaks & loopholes in the #GOPTaxBill that will benefit them, they should hire a better lawyer.
Nov. 29, 2017 Tweet - Honestly, if @POTUS' friends' lawyers haven't figured out how the #GOPTaxPlan benefits the wealthy above everyone else, let me help: 1/6
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - The #GOPTaxScam is terrible for New York & the country. It is a massive transfer of wealth to the already-wealthy. It would exacerbate inequality and set the middle class back at the worst possible time.
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - Across the country Americans signing up to #GetCovered on only have until December 15th to lock in coverage for 2018. Spread the word - there's a plan for everyone.
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - Bipartisanship & compromise are possible on tax reform. We can do a better job than this & not saddle the next generation of Americans with even larger deficits, even larger debt.
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - The #GOPTaxBill would even open up drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge because this tax bill wouldn't be complete unless it helped big oil companies too. #ProtecttheArctic
Nov. 28, 2017 Pelosi, Schumer Joint Statement on Congressional Leaders' Meeting with President Trump
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - Under the #GOPTaxBill, estates worth over $11 million get a tax break. Corporations get a permanent reduction in their tax rates while individual tax breaks expire after a few years. Why is that?
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - The GOP isn't proud of their bill. Every ind. analysis has shown it will end up raising taxes. @TaxPolicyCenter estimates 60% of middle-class families will see a tax INCREASE by the time the bill is fully implemented, while folks making >$1M will get an average tax CUT of >$40K.
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - We don't have any time to waste in addressing the issues that confront us, so we're going to continue to negotiate with Republican leaders who may be interested in reaching a bipartisan agreement.
Nov. 28, 2017 Tweet - If @POTUS, who already said earlier this year that "our country needs a good shutdown," isn't interested in addressing the difficult year end agenda, we'll work w/ those who are. Looking fwd to continuing to work in good faith w/ our GOP colleagues in Congress to do just that.
