In an @FSCDems hearing, we pushed private banks on their handling of Paycheck Protection Program loans. This program was designed to help small business owners survive the pandemic, but instead there are numerous reports that eligible loans are not being fully forgiven.

Flashback to 2019 when Michael Cohen testified that the Trump family had defrauded taxpayers and investors by consistently lying about the value of their assets. Today鈥檚 lawsuit from @NewYorkStateAG is a critical step towards accountability.

Last year, we raised concerns about Puerto Rico鈥檚 electric grid. More than 4 years after Maria & Irma wiped out power for 70% of the Island, the grid was still extremely vulnerable to natural disasters. This weekend鈥檚 infrastructure failure was tragically predictable.

We now have the chance to do something different. We can help Puerto Rico鈥檚 economy & vulnerability to climate change by building a reliable, sustainable grid that will create thousands of jobs. We must break the vicious cycle of rebuilding vulnerable fossil fuel infrastructure.

On the one year anniversary of Hurricane Ida, we鈥檙e thinking of the neighbors we lost, and the many more who are still struggling to rebuild their homes. This flooding was preventable, and, going forward, we must use every tool at our disposal to prevent future climate disasters.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the monsoons in Pakistan 鈥 from the millions who have now been displaced to the thousands who have tragically lost their lives.
Record monsoon rains and floods in Pakistan have killed 1,000+ people, including hundreds of children. Pakistan produces less than 1% of CO2 emissions but is highly vulnerable to climate crisis events. Officials say a third of Pakistan is underwater: "It's all one big ocean."
