I heard from victims of the Marine Corps photo scandal about its impact on their lives and careers. Those responsible must be held accountable, and military leadership must renew efforts to prevent cultures of misogyny and disrespect within their ranks.
Transparency in Government
The American people deserve to know what potential conflicts of interest President Trump has in relation to foreign governments and business interests. I signed a "demand a vote" discharge petition to force a vote on the Presidential Tax Transparency Act (H.R. 304) to require the President and future candidates for President to release their tax returns. I will continue to support efforts to compel President Trump to release his tax information publicly.
Invasion of Privacy
I voted against
efforts undertaken by Republican leadership and the Trump Administration to make it easier for Internet service providers to sell individual browsing and search data without your consent. S.J.Res.34
passed the Senate 50 - 48, the House 215 - 205 and was signed into law by President Trump on April 3.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) introduced regulations under the Obama Administration to require Internet providers to get permission from consumers before selling their private information, including browsing history. S.J.Res.34 reversed those efforts. Consumers will now have to actively opt out to prevent providers from selling their private information. Thanks to all who called about this issue.

Results from the Last Survey
Do you support the Trump-Ryan healthcare plan that - according to the Congressional Budget Office - would cut the deficit, but would result in 24 million Americans losing their coverage?
Do you support the Trump budget proposal that increases defense spending and decreases funding for science, art, environmental protection, and many other federal programs?
