Yet, all too often, our environment has come under direct assault from our Republican colleagues’ toxic political games. We will need to work together if we are to meet the challenge before us. On this Earth Day, let us embrace our shared stewardship of this planet, preserve our environment, strengthen our economy, and avert the crisis of global warming.”

Speeches

It has no partisanship about it. It is sensible. And it will cost less to do more for our seniors. A challenge is there. The solution is clear. The Republicans have rejected that, so we are at their mercy."

"So, in order to reignite the American Dream – that’s what we’re about – to build ladders of opportunity for those who want to work hard, play by the rules, take responsibility, to have those ladders have sides about small business and entrepreneurship and a strong and thriving middle class, we have work to do.
