I stand with you!" 4/20/18 Tweet - "Nestle can now pump 250 gallons a minute of our water to sell across the U.S, yet residents of Flint will now have to buy their bottled water.

We've recently passed into law some important steps to strengthen protections for young athletes but there is much more to do." 4/19/18 Tweet - "Today in @SenateFinance I called on the Trump Admin to negotiate the lowest price for naloxone.

He was the wrong choice for CIA Director then, and he is the wrong choice to represent America as the Secretary of State now." 4/18/18 Tweet - "I did not support Mike Pompeo to be CIA Director and I will not vote for him to be our Secretary of State. He is not fit to be our head diplomat or to represent American values around the world." 4/18/18 Tweet - "Today I joined 38 of my colleagues to call on Scott Pruitt to resign. We need someone at the EPA who will stand with us to protect our air, water, and Great Lakes!" 4/18/18 Tweet - "Our Michigan police officers, firefighters, and first responders use naloxone to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses and save lives.

Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services - Stabenow, Peters Call on Administration to Take Immediate Action to Reduce Price of Naloxone, a Life-Saving Opioid Overdose Reversal Drug 4/18/18 Tweet - "It's unfortunate that House Republicans are pushing a farm bill that abandons the bipartisan approach that allowed us to pass the current #FarmBill.

I'm focused on bringing down the outrageous cost of prescription drugs and thank Linda for sharing her story with me." 3/29/18 Drug companies see prescription drugs as a commodity.

Schumer, Senate Minority Leader - Bring Forward Legislation to Reform Sexual Harassment, Discrimination Rules in Congress 3/28/18 Tweet - "I continue to stand up to the drug company lobbyists and special interests who spend millions to keep the cost of your medications so high. It is wrong and my plan would lower the cost of prescription drugs -- making a major difference for our Michigan families." 3/28/18 Tweet - "Big Pharma spends more on lobbying than any other industry to stop competition that would lower prices.
