The @ChipRoyTX approach to fighting COVID-19: - the-flu-is-worse - nothing-to-see-here - everyone-needs-to-relax - I-know-more-than-Dr. Fauci - TX-hospitals-aren't-that-full! - herd-immunity-with-no-vaccine
It's unacceptable and unconscionable that so many nursing homes across Texas are still not reporting their COVID data. This information is essential for families to protect their loved ones & for experts to stop the spread of this virus. #TX21 kxan.com/news/coronavir…
No surprise - poll workers are hesitant to work polls without face mask requirements to keep them safe. Remind me the reason for excluding polling locations from your face mask order, @GovAbbott? texastribune.org/2020/07/09/tex…
Between April and June, @wendydavis outraised @chiproytx by more than $850,000 atxne.ws/2W5UvUx

106 lives lost today. 2,918 total. These aren’t just numbers. These aren’t just statistics. These are people, with family and friends who loved them and who will grieve. Our state will be less great without them. Prayers for those left behind. #TX21 statesman.com/news/20200709/…
Thank you to the grassroots supporters who made this possible. 88% of our donations were under $100, and over 80% came from Texans. I’ll put all of us up against @chiproytx and his dark money special interest supporters any day of the week. #TX21 twitter.com/PatrickSvitek/…

As run-off election day nears, it's notable that the CDC recommends alternatives to in-person voting. Yet in TX, @GovAbbott has blocked efforts to expand mail-in voting & exempted polling places from face mask requirements. How's that for GOP leadership? washingtonpost.com/politics/in-ne…
Working parents who rely on these child care providers are essential to our economic recovery. They deserve information and full transparency about whether their kids are at risk in daycare settings. And child care providers deserve resources to assure safety. #TX21 twitter.com/TexasTribune/s…
If I have to wear this doggone thing, surely you can wear a mask. Stay safe Texas. Love, Ziggy. #ConeofShame #MaskProud #MaskUpTX https://t.co/3Nj5rZi6W8
As our state saw yet-another day of rising #COVID19 infections, @chiproytx decided it was a good day to remind Texans where his priorities lie. Spoiler alert: It's not with working families. https://t.co/zNaYGBNWkF
In the face of rising drug prices, let’s take a moment to remember that @ChipRoyTX believes it's 'offensive' for Congress to question the system & has told Pharma execs: "I hope you make a lot of money!" We deserve better, #TX21. politico.com/news/2020/07/0…
When drug companies use pay-to-play tactics to influence doctors to prescribe particular medicines, drug prices rise & the American people foot the bill. We need anti-kickback laws with meaningful consequences. #TX21 nbcnews.com/business/econo…
In his town hall, @RepChipRoy said "we should wear masks when we are around people. At first I didn't understand how important that was." @ChipRoyTX, would you agree, then, that @GovAbbott's mask mandate should include polling places? #TX21
Texas has the highest uninsured rate and a family planning safety net that has never recovered from cuts instituted by the state in 2011. With SCOTUS’ decision today, access to family planning just got even worse. apnews.com/65d64e383b5b90…
Expanding Medicaid would give access to health insurance to almost 2M Texans &, from its inception in 2012, would've brought $100 BILLION of our tax dollars back here to provide medical care and boost our economy. Sure could use both right about now. #TX21 expressnews.com/opinion/commen…
Here's an idea: allow mail-in ballots & require face masks at polling stations. #TX21 houstonchronicle.com/politics/texas…
I cannot stress this enough: every single one of us plays a role in flattening the curve to prevent our hospitals from running out of space. Social distancing & wearing masks will literally save lives. #TX21 twitter.com/TexasTribune/s…
As @GovAbbott said several days ago, the safest place for us to be right now is in our home. So why, then, no ability to vote by mail? And why does his mask order SPECIFICALLY exempt voting locations? I was proud to mask up to vote today, for my health and others. https://t.co/XYyVynjmrp
COVID has taken a disproportionate toll on Black & Latino families as a result of systemic discrimination in healthcare, but also in housing, criminal justice, education, & at work. We must acknowledge this reality & work tirelessly to reverse its course. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
As we celeb. the declaration of our independence let’s take today & the days ahead to reflect on our founding promise that “all men are created equal.” This means nothing if it doesn’t include EVERYone. The best gift we can give America on her birthday is vowing to fulfill that🇺🇸
Suspending H-1B visas for highly specialized workers - positions that would otherwise go unfilled - will slow down our economic recovery. Companies across Texas, and the country, depend on the skillsets these workers bring. #TX21 kxan.com/news/business/…
Universal #VoteByMail and reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act are essential to deliver on the promise of what it means to live in a democracy. #TX21 expressnews.com/opinion/commen…
Be safe this 4th of July weekend friends, take care of your fellow Americans by wearing masks, staying 6' apart, avoiding large gatherings, and washing your hands regularly. We're ALL in this together. #MaskUpTexas
It’s pretty simple folks - expand healthcare access, expand the economy. In Congress, I’ll work tirelessly to make health insurance more accessible & affordable for all Texans. @ChipRoyTX? You be the judge. #TX21 texasmonthly.com/politics/mend-…

We have to get this right. Essential workers who sacrifice their health to power our economy should be able to rely on safe child care, & child care providers deserve the resources needed to protect children.

One of the most important challenges for leaders at local, state & fed levels will be addressing the “COVID slide” our students face, particularly those who’ve disengaged while working to support family incomes & those w/o computer/internet access. This is a top priority for me. twitter.com/TexasTribune/s…
wear a mask. that's it, that's the tweet
This is very alarming and cause for great concern. A subsequent report by @Joeycules indicates that 1 out of every 4 newly hospitalized patients in Bexar County is #COVID19 related. twitter.com/Joeycules/stat…
It is unconscionable that any American President would allow what was essentially a “murder for hire” scheme against American troops to go unanswered. Our troops, their families and the American public at large deserve answers. nytimes.com/2020/06/29/us/…
RT @washingtonpost: National mask mandate could save 5 percent of GDP, economists say wapo.st/3ib2ysx
Two identical #COVID19 tests in TX were billed at $199 and $6,408, respectively — a 3,200% price difference. @ChipRoyTX refuses to take action as Republicans continue trying to repeal (w/ no replacement) the health care of 23M Americans. #TX21 nytimes.com/2020/06/29/ups…
Yesterday, the House passed a bill that would expand health care coverage to millions of Americans, cut costs for those covered under the ACA, & provide ability for Medicare to negotiate drug prices, benefitting us all. @ChipRoyTX voted against it. nytimes.com/2020/06/29/us/…
The construction of the Kinder Morgan pipeline is wreaking havoc on the drinking water of TX Hill Country residents. Kinder Morgan should immediately halt construction until they clean up their mess & ensure no further damages are possible. #TX21 houstonchronicle.com/news/investiga…
 
says that he’d do something about this if he “put [on his] lawyer hat…” Well, he’s wearing a congressional hat, so what’s he waiting for? When I have my “congressional hat” on, you better believe I’ll fix this. #TX21
Early voting in the TX primary run-offs starts today. Shamefully, even as #COVID19 skyrockets in TX & @GovAbbott says the “safest place for you is at home,” he’s failed to take action to allow you to #VoteByMail. Voting should not mean risking your health. star-telegram.com/news/politics-…
In April, Texans were told "testing is the foundation on which the plan to open Texas is built." Months later, testing can still take hours or even days & it's currently not available to everyone who wants one. This is unacceptable. #TX21 texastribune.org/2020/06/27/cor…
We need a more secure reproductive future—and we can get there by electing the right people. Let's flip the Senate! twitter.com/ilyseh/status/…
Yes!! Today #SCOTUS reaffirmed a woman’s right to make her own reproductive healthcare decisions free from sham government regulations purporting to care about women’s safety. Score one for the good guys, team! 🙏🏻 twitter.com/SCOTUSblog/sta…

I proudly stand with @JoeBiden in demanding that Congress #BanChokeholds & pass meaningful police reform. Please sign this petition if you agree: go.joebiden.com/page/s/ban-cho…
You can't make this up: Republicans, in the middle of a pandemic w/ 40M filing unemployment, are asking #SCOTUS to repeal health care for 23M Americans. Note: this ruling would also remove protections for pre-existing conditions, meaning approx. 340k could lose coverage in #TX21 twitter.com/MSNBC/status/1…
Reminder: Since day 1, @ChipRoyTX has ignored & mocked the advice of scientists & medical experts, calling for an express, uncoordinated reopening. Look where that's landed us. #TX21 twitter.com/TexasTribune/s…

Proud to stand alongside Planned Parenthood in its continued efforts to assure that women and men have access to the reproductive healthcare that they need. twitter.com/pptxvotes/stat…
It was a privilege to stand with and for so many women (& men!) that day. It became know as the “People’s Filibuster” for a reason & reminds us of the power we have when we fight alongside each other for what we know to be right. I’ll always be a proud member of that #unrulymob twitter.com/lanainaustin/s…
Remember when @ChipRoyTX pushed a fringe theory re herd immunity w/o a vaccine? The results: record hospitalizations & dwindling ICU bed capacity. Oh, and a simultaneous withdrawal of fed funds for testing, leaving our economy AND safety more threatened than ever. #TX21 twitter.com/thehill/status…
The only "overhaul" that's going to lead to improving #COVID19 outcomes needs to happen in November. #Vote. politico.com/news/2020/06/2…
The disproportionate impact of #COVID19 on communities of color has illuminated systemic racism in health care, education, housing, criminal justice & environmental justice. We can & must address the inequities in each of these. npr.org/sections/healt…
H-1B visas are granted to workers outside the US with highly specialized skill sets for jobs that will otherwise go unfilled. Barring these visa holders is senseless, and will hurt companies across Texas and the country. #TX21 texastribune.org/2020/06/22/h1-…
RT @JulianCastro: Trump’s entire White House has voted by mail. But they don’t think you should be able to.
Federal funding should be used to supplement education spending on new COVID-related expenses, not for the state to fill its budget gaps. #TX21 statesman.com/news/20200622/…
The same weekend that Austin & San Antonio become two of the top 5 fastest-growing #COVID19 hotspots in the country, the President suggests we slow down testing & @ChipRoyTX tries to take a victory lap. #TX21 ksat.com/news/local/202…
Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and father figures out there. Missing mine today. If yours is still with you, savor every moment you’re able to say “I love you.” #FathersDay
If your biggest risk is that more people vote... 🤔 politico.com/news/2020/06/1…
With cases rising & businesses reopening in TX, parents should not have to fear for their children's safety. Child care providers should be provided with the resources needed to implement all safety guidelines provided by the state & the CDC. #TX21 texastribune.org/2020/06/19/cor…
There are deadly consequences to the systematic unwinding of environmental protections of our air & water that disproportionately affect black mothers. "This is a moment of reckoning for racial injustice and health disparities." nytimes.com/2020/06/18/cli…
Let’s give meaning to the words #BlackLivesMatter by resolving to do the long, hard work that is necessary to provide the promise of “absolute equality.” We've got a lot more work to do, and we won't be silent until it's done. Let's get to work. /11
A healthcare system where Black Lives have the same access to health insurance and healthcare as everyone else. An education system where every Black student is given an opportunity to realize his or her full potential. 9/
Absolute equality means a criminal justice system where Black Lives are not disproportionately incarcerated or killed at the hands of police. An environmental justice system where Black Lives are not disproportionately exposed to air and water pollutants. 8/
This year, as we observe the promise of #Juneteenth, let’s be reminded of the power that comes when we stand with and alongside each other to fight for the just and equal world that each of us deserves. 10/
to toxic environmental pollutants causing lead poisoning of Black children and sky-high asthma rates, to inequities and inadequacies in housing, to long term public health failures, and, of course, to continuing injustices at the hands of law enforcement. 7/
Had we achieved it, Black Americans would not be experiencing the impacts of sustained racial inequities that they endure on a daily basis: from inadequacy of child-care, public education and access to affordable higher education 6/
“The people of TX are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the US, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights & rights of property between former masters & slaves..." 4/
155 years later we’re still in pursuit of “absolute equality”. Had we achieved it, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Javier Ambler, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Alton Sterling, Trayvon Martin, Philando Castile, & many would still be with us. 5/
Though Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation two and a half years prior, the news had traveled slowly throughout the south before finally reaching Galveston. These were the words bestowed by General Gordon Granger: 3/
This year, we turn our attention to how much we still need to do to assure equity and opportunity for Black Lives. 155 years ago today, on the balcony of Ashton Villa in Galveston, TX, word reached the last remaining slaves in the nation that slavery as they knew it was over 2/
This year, #Juneteenth will feel different from the 154 before, and necessarily so. Historically, we've taken time to reflect on the African American experience – to acknowledge the scourge and suffering of slavery & honor the liberation & contributions of African Americans 1/
