Student loan companies routinely deceive teachers, first responders, & other public service workers about their eligibility for PSLF. I’m concerned that the @CFPB has abandoned its oversight of these companies, and I want answers.
Housing costs are a real obstacle to families in MA & across the country, & we can’t fix it by nibbling at the edges. That’s why I’ve got an affordable housing bill to build 3M new housing units, reduce rents by 10%, & create 1.5M jobs. We can do this.
I’m glad @WellsFargo is starting to buckle under pressure. But given the bank's history of scamming students, they need to do a lot more to prove that they belong on college campuses. Students deserve better.
UPDATE: After I demanded answers from @WellsFargo about the exorbitant fees they've been charging college students, the bank has finally agreed to stop charging some fees on student debit cards.

Wells Fargo has a record of cheating its customers. The latest victim? College students. A new @CFPB report shows the bank gouged students with triple the fees of its competitors. @WellsFargo doesn’t belong on college campuses. http://fortune.com/2019/01/17/warren-wells-fargo-kicked-off-campus-exorbitant-fees/…
For years, the US has been enabling Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen. I was an early co-sponsor of legislation to end our support, which has now passed the House and the Senate. Our complicity must end – @realDonaldTrump must sign this immediately.
In 2017, I asked @USGAO to investigate whether @realDonaldTrump has followed protocol for handling secure matters at Mar-a-Lago. GAO reported: while the @SecretService protects the President, it’s the @WhiteHouse that determines who has access to Trump.
David Bernhardt has spent his career working to pollute our environment for corporate profits. He’s on the side of Big Oil, Big Coal, and Big Ag – not the American people or public lands. When his nomination comes to the Senate floor for a vote, I’ll be voting no. #StopBernhardt
That’s not all. A lawsuit alleges that Bernhardt’s ex oil and gas clients “began receiving sudden and dramatic windfalls only months since his swearing-in” as Deputy at @Interior. This is what happens when we let lobbyists waltz through the revolving door.
I’ve already called for an investigation into David Bernhardt’s actions at @Interior. As Acting Secretary, he worked to weaken important water and wildlife protections – that benefited his old lobbying clients.
The Senate Energy Committee just voted to advance David Bernhardt’s nomination to run @Interior – despite mountains of evidence that he’s more interested in working for swamp monsters like his ex-clients than protecting public lands.
After we introduced the Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act in 2017, the Federal Bureau of Prisons began offering free sanitary products. And last year, many of our provisions were included in the bipartisan prison & sentencing reform bill.
