These killings are hateful and heinous. Thank you @GovMLG
The targeted killings of Muslim residents of Albuquerque is deeply angering and wholly intolerable. I am sending additional State Police officers to Albuquerque to work in close coordination with APD and the FBI to bring the killer or killers to justice – and they WILL be found.

I am angered and saddened by the horrific killings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque. While we await a full investigation, my prayers are with the victims’ families, and my Administration stands strongly with the Muslim community. These hateful attacks have no place in America.

Last week, @RyanDBusse testified before @OversightDems about the gun industry's toxic marketing practices. The scariest part? Gun industry executives (all members of the NSSF) refused to take any responsibility for marketing weapons to mass killers.
When Gun industry leaders refuse to disavow marketing to white nationalists and domestic terrorists… you know we have a problem. I testified to Congress about the gun industry. It rattled me to my core | US gun control | The Guardian theguardian.com/commentisfre…

This retaliation against workers trying to unionize is unacceptable.  
BREAKING: Starbucks just fired another outspoken union leader in Buffalo. Last month, Sam Amato told us about how Starbucks’ inadequate health insurance put him in massive medical debt. Today, after 13 years of loyal service, he was fired.

As Democrats work to lower drug prices for seniors, Republicans aren’t even trying to keep their plans to slash Social Security & Medicare a secret. The message is clear, again and again: you can't trust them to protect Social Security & Medicare. madison.com/news/local/govt-…

Right @CTULocal1, Illinois must "quickly [to] put more money into evidence-based funding so that every school across our state receives the resources it deserves. CPS is one of hundreds of Illinois school districts that is 30% underfunded.” bit.ly/3BNkgOW @rweingarten

The PACT Act is the biggest expansion of VA health care in decades, and the largest single bill ever to comprehensively address exposure to burn pits. I look forward to signing this bill, so veterans and their families get the benefits and health care they earned and deserve.
