As a new Congress begins today amid partisan conspiracy claims, our allegiance should lie not with any political party but with the American people.

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States” is an oath, not a suggestion.

Wishing you and yours a safe, healthy and happy New Year! The New Year is a time to begin again and resolve to do better. With a new Administration and new Congress in 2021, it’s time to come together to support comprehensive, affordable health care for our children and families. We can, and must, resolve to do better.

Wishing you and yours a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

Terese and I were saddened to learn today of the passing of Dick Thornburgh, a former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Governor of Pennsylvania, U.S. Attorney General, and friend. Our Commonwealth and our country are better for his distinguished service. Together with the entire Casey family, we send our deepest condolences to Ginny, his four sons, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris continue to build a capable team who will be ready to meet our Nation’s challenges on Day 1. In particular, I want to commend the selection of Carole Johnson as the Testing Coordinator on the COVID-19 Response Team. Carole served as part the health care team in my office and was Deputy Staff Director of the Senate Aging Committee where I am Ranking Member. Carole is a dedicated public servant who will work to put in place the national testing strategy we need.

Majority Leader McConnell has twice blocked a vote on Democrats’ bill to put $2,000 in the pockets of struggling families. The House passed this measure by an overwhelming bipartisan majority. The same could happen in the Senate if Senator McConnell would get out of the way.

Wishing all of those celebrating today a Merry Christmas. Though many of us are spending the holidays apart from our loved ones, may we find hope in the ways our Nation has come together during these unprecedented times and remember there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

Women’s Economic Empowerment and Trade

When nations fail to provide broad-based rights for women and girls they are effectively relying on gender-based discrimination for “economic advantage”. This harms workers everywhere and our trade laws must be modernized to help address it. Proud to partner with Sen. Cortez Masto on this important work to advance the rights of women around the world.

"As our Nation and the world continue to respond to COVID-19, we should look ahead to how we will create a safer and more equitable economic recovery for workers in the United States and around the world...It should be a priority of the United States government to advance the rights of women around....

The COVID-19 relief legislation is a bipartisan compromise that will put money in the pockets of working families and invest vital dollars into vaccine deployment. While agreement on this latest COVID-19 relief bill is welcome and long overdue, the legislation is nowhere near what must be done to address the full scope of our Nation’s public health and economic crisis. Due to the intransigence of Senate Republicans, this relief bill does not include critically-needed money to state and local governments to prevent service cuts and layoffs of firefighters, law enforcement and local health departments. It also lacks meaningful policies and investments to protect nursing home residents and workers and to allow seniors and people with disabilities to receive needed care at home. I will continue to fight for these measures. When a new Congress convenes in January and President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris are sworn in, we must begin work on bold, robust legislation that will allow America to build back better and provide families a full measure of support.

Our Nation faces a once in a century pandemic which requires a Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) who is committed to the health and well-being of all Americans. After meeting with him and reviewing his record, I am confident that California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is the kind of leader our Nation needs at the Department of the Health and Human Services during this challenging time. Xavier Becerra has dedicated his life to public service and at every turn he has fought to expand access to health care and improve the health and well-being of his constituents. As a Congressman, he was instrumental in developing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and as California Attorney General he has been leading the fight to protect the ACA. Attorney General Becerra has been on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19 by standing up for California workers’ safety on the job. Xavier Becerra’s long fight to ensure all Americans have access to health care will continue when he is confirmed as HHS Secretary.

Like everything else in 2020, meeting with Cabinet nominees looks different, but the new Administration is ready to build back better for our working families.

The pandemic and ensuing economic crisis have caused millions of children and their families to go hungry. Our farmers have faced significant market disruptions as well as the devastating effects of climate change. Given his experience and vision, I know that Tom Vilsack will make food security one of USDA’s top priorities and ensure that farmers have the tools they need to play a critical role in protecting natural resources and addressing the climate crisis. I had the opportunity to virtually meet with Secretary Vilsack on Friday and we discussed the work that needs to be done to deliver relief for families and farmers in Pennsylvania and throughout the Nation. He is committed to leading a diverse team at USDA and addressing the racial inequities in our food and agriculture system. At a time of national crisis, Tom Vilsack brings with him to USDA his eight years of prior experience as Secretary of Agriculture under President Obama, as well as first-hand, intricate knowledge of the department that will allow him to be effective on day one. I look forward to supporting his nomination.

Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the Attending Physician for the United States Congress and Supreme Court, recently issued a recommendation that all members of Congress receive the COVID-19 vaccine, which arrived at the Capitol this week in order to ensure continuity of government. This morning, I received the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. I will receive my second dose in approximately three weeks.

I encourage all Americans, in consultation with their doctor, to get the vaccine when it becomes available to them. I will continue to press the Administration to work to ensure that all Americans can receive the vaccine in a timely manner and insist that vaccines be distributed in an equitable fashion, particularly at nursing homes where residents and workers face an acute threat from the virus.

I am encouraged by the news that congressional leadership is nearing a deal on a $900 billion COVID relief bill, which would deliver much-needed support to workers, families and businesses. As I have said before, this is an interim relief bill to get Americans through the winter. There’s no question that state and local governments need significant amounts of money as well, which would prevent firefighters, teachers and other first responders from losing their jobs. Unfortunately, some in the Senate are saying that the only way you can help teachers and firefighters is by granting a broad corporate immunity that would put American workers in danger. That’s a false choice. We must work together to provide state and local governments the resources that everyone acknowledges they need without poison pills.

As our Nation surpasses 300,000 lives lost due to COVID-19, we pray for those who have passed and mourn with the families who have lost loved ones. While the delivery of a vaccine provides some light at the end of this dark tunnel, nothing can account for the pain of losing a family member, a friend or a neighbor. We can still save lives. I urge all Pennsylvanians and people across our country to follow the guidance of public health experts. Social distance. Wear a mask and stay home if you can. Everyone should consult with their health care provider about the vaccine and get vaccinated if recommended to do so. Our actions in the coming weeks and months will determine whether more lives are lost and more Americans mourn a loved one.

Today, I had the opportunity to virtually meet with Dr. Vivek Murthy, President-elect Biden’s nominee to be our Nation’s next Surgeon General. During President Obama’s Administration, Dr. Murthy was a Surgeon General who worked to protect and improve the health and well-being of all Americans. As our Nation faces its most dire health crisis in more than 100 years, I am grateful to Dr. Murthy for his willingness to serve in this role once again and lend his considerable skills and experience to the incoming Biden Administration. If confirmed, I am confident that he will play a critical role in helping to lead our Nation through the COVID-19 pandemic and emerge stronger.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet virtually with Wally Adeyemo, who has been nominated to serve as Deputy Treasury Secretary in President-elect Biden’s Administration. I commended Mr. Adeyemo for his service during President Obama’s Administration and his willingness to once again serve our Nation during this challenging time. Mr. Adeyemo expressed his desire to ensure that our Treasury Department focuses on the economic needs of working families. I am confident that he will focus his efforts on promoting policies that raise wages for workers and help American families make ends meet. Mr. Adeyemo has the experience and vision to serve as Deputy Treasury Secretary during this economic crisis. He, working together with Janet Yellen, who has been nominated to be Treasury Secretary, will help America build back better.

On Friday, I was pleased to have the opportunity to meet virtually with the Treasury Secretary nominee, Janet Yellen. I thanked Chair Yellen for her lifetime of public service and her willingness to once again work on behalf of our Nation and its families during this difficult time. We discussed Chair Yellen’s vision for the Treasury Department in President-elect Biden’s Administration and how she will work to ensure our Nation builds back better. Janet Yellen has the experience and vision to ensure the Treasury Department is at the forefront of the fight for working families. If confirmed, I am confident she will once again serve the Nation with distinction.

Today, we remember the lives lost in the Sandy Hook massacre. The educators inside Sandy Hook Elementary School died protecting their students. Rachel D'Avino, Dawn Hochsprung, Anne Marie Murphy, Lauren Rousseau, Mary Sherlach and Victoria Leigh Soto are heroes. Charlotte, Daniel, Olivia, Josephine, Dylan, Madeleine, Catherine, Chase, Jesse, Ana, James, Grace, Emilie, Jack, Noah, Caroline, Jessica, Avielle, Benjamin and Allison should have all started high school this year. Instead, their lives were cut short in their 1st grade classrooms. Our obligation to the victims of Sandy Hook and all those who lose their lives to gun violence on a daily basis remains unfulfilled. We must pass gun safety legislation so that “never again” is more than just a hollow notion.

7 of 9 Republicans in PA's congressional delegation have signed up for a bogus lawsuit that is nothing more than a corrupt attack on our state and its people. They are seeking to disenfranchise all voters.

The principles enshrined in the Declaration of Human Rights are as relevant today as in 1948. We must stand up for our rights and those of others—and with COVID-19 fueling injustices at home and abroad, human rights must be at the center of recovery efforts.

As a global leader, the U.S. has a responsibility to remember that disability rights ARE human rights. This summer I introduced legislation to establish an Office of International Disability Rights within the State Department to advocate for disability rights around the world. However, promoting international human rights also means taking a hard look at our systems at home. In addition to cosponsoring the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, my LEAD Initiative aims to ensure someone’s ethnicity or mental ability does not preclude them from fair treatment.

President John F. Kennedy once said “The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.” All people—at home and around the world—deserve to be treated with dignity, have their basic needs met and live in a society that values equal justice.
