Senate Democrats passed the boldest agenda we’ve seen in a long time—an agenda that improved the lives of the American people. We focused on things that matter to everyday Americans. And the American people trusted us with the majority again!

Democrats had an amazing 2 years and got a record amount done this Congress. And the American people believed in our accomplishments: American Rescue Plan Infrastructure bill PACT Act for veterans A major gun safety law CHIPS and Science Act Inflation Reduction Act So much more
We staunchly defended a woman's right to choose. Because the American people turned out to elect Democrats in the Senate, there is now a firewall against the threat by MAGA Republicans of a nationwide abortion ban.
The American people rejected the anti-democratic, authoritarian, nasty, and divisive direction the MAGA Republicans wanted to take our country.
Voters saw what Senate Democrats were able to accomplish during the last two years: The American Rescue Plan The infrastructure bill The PACT Act for veterans A major gun safety law The CHIPS and Science Act The Inflation Reduction Act And so, so much more
As MAGA Republicans stoked fear and division: Senate Democrats were talking how we worked to deliver on the issues that mattered most to people.
Democrats will have a majority again in the Senate! This election is a victory and vindication for Democrats, our agenda and our accomplishments, and for America and the American people.
This #VeteransDay, we honor America's heroes and their families for their service and sacrifice to our country. We are forever indebted to our vets. And we will never stop fighting for them!

The inflation report today shows that our plan is working, but there’s more work to do and we won’t stop fighting for Americans across this country!
