Let’s be clear: fuel assurance doesn't guarantee generation after a disaster. During the Polar Vortex, coal piles froze. Coal piles flooded in Hurricane Harvey. This response fails to address the real vulnerabilities in our grid, most notably weaknesses i

These requirements targeting poor families and folks approaching retirement age also ignore the practical realities of working life for millions of Americans, e.g. @CenteronBudget: "Most Working-Age SNAP Participants Work, But Often in Unstable Jobs"

ALL of America's middle class, working families & our must vulnerable deserve to be heard and their needs & values represented. That means #EveryoneCounts. How can we live up to America's most hopeful legacy of self-governance if we don't even kno

Amidst all of this, in mid-April House Oversight & Government Reform chairman @TGowdySC wrote to Scott Pruitt (again) because: “the EPA has failed to produce all the documents requested.” https://t.co/hvfycTxQV7

Administrator Pruitt’s aides even considered leasing a private jet at a cost to taxpayers of some $100,000/month: https://t.co/gIxo7TO04P.

President Trump was asked about Mr. Pruitt's housing scandal the next day (4/3). The President responded, "I hope he's going to be great." https://t.co/EMWfsfxOvf

@nowthisnews @AdyBarkan @BeAHeroTeam During his visit to Washington, dozens of U.S. Representatives gathered in a room across from the House chamber to listen as this chair-clad champion, arms raised, taught us all something about our democracy. Thank you

.@EnergyCommerce requested EPA Inspector General investigate this activity last year. An investigation was launched in January. In March, despite knowing he was under scrutiny for these exact hiring practices, @EPAScottPruitt quietly delivered big raises

86% of U.S. households depend on public water systems, many of which need major repairs or replacement. My colleagues and I fought for & won $50 million in additional funding for states to repair drinking water systems and $50 million to support state

@EPA This budget deal loosens the gag on @CDCgov #gunviolence research, opening a door that has been closed for more than two decades. The bill also strengthens the background check system and helps cash-strapped school systems looking to invest in greate
