      When Republicans controlled the Senate they tried to use reconciliation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and throw 32 million Americans off of the health care they had.

      Today, we will also use reconciliation, but we will use it much differently than the Republicans. We will use it to benefit the working class, not the billionaire class.

      Mr. President: It’s no secret that millions of Americans are giving up on democracy and have lost faith in their government. Many of these people are working longer hours for lower wages and are seeing their children experience a lower standard of living than they had.

      This legislation will not only provide enormous support to the kids of this country to the parents of this country, to the elderly people of this country, but it will also, I hope, restore the belief that in America we can have a government that works for all, not just the few.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.
