A few drug companies are hurting patients by using unfair practices to keep drug prices artificially high. Today I reintroduced my bipartisan #CREATES Act to remove these obstacles & end these unfair practices, helping patients & families, & saving taxpayers $3.9 billion.
Thanks to my #CREATES Act cosponsors in the Senate who are working hard to keep down prescription drug prices. @ChuckGrassley, @SenAmyKlobuchar, @SenMikeLee & many others. Completely bipartisan. Read HERE about this important bill: leahy.senate.gov/press/020519cr…
I’m proud to fight for Vermont patients, families and seniors by reintroducing my #CREATES Act, which is why I’m delighted that @PeterWelch is a cosponsor of the bill in the House, and that we have support of #VT organizations like @AARPVT.

Long before the #TrumpShutdown began, Donald Trump, as a candidate, and then as President, resorted to fear, cynicism and misinformation for personal and political gain.
There is a crisis in America, but it is not the crisis the President wants us to believe. It is a crisis he’s caused, felt right now at the kitchen tables of American families who are trying to figure out how they will make ends meet and pay their bills. #TrumpShutdown
Dozens of Vermonters have contacted my office to urge the President and Republican leaders in the Senate to stop playing politics with their lives and reopen the federal government. #TrumpShutdown Read their stories HERE: leahy.senate.gov/press/011019da…

Each of the interns in my paid internship program has a “one-on-one day” to follow me and see exactly what goes into representing VT. Today Nina will be tweeting about her day from my account. I secured funds in this years approps bills to pay ALL congressional interns.
This is Nina taking over Senator Leahy’s twitter for today. I’m from Waterbury, VT and study political science and environmental science @AmericanU. It looks like we have a busy day ahead of ourselves!
The Senator skyped with AP Gov’t students from Spaulding High School in Barre. Senator Leahy enjoys talking with students across #VT about civic engagement. Great to be discussing political participation with young people!

Today I will be shadowed by my intern Kiernan, who will also be tweeting photos of his day from this account. My paid internship program is one of the best on Capitol Hill. If you are interested, apply by tomorrow, Nov. 16, HERE: leahy.senate.gov/services/inter…
[Kiernan] Today I’ll be shadowing Senator Leahy as part of my paid internship. I’m from beautiful @MorrisvilleVT and study political science at @AmericanU. Excited for a busy day as the Senator meets with constituents, committees, dignitaries, and advocates.
[Kiernan] Starting off the day in a @senjudiciary executive business meeting where the Senator spoke out against Trump’s installation of Whitaker as Acting AG. The Committee also reported #Vermont’s US Marshal nominee Brad LaRose for a vote on the Senate floor unanimously.

Disappointed that @SenatorCarper’s amendment to create a new Wood Heater Emissions Reductions grant program failed on a party-line vote in @EPWGOP. Just delaying the regulatory timeline is not enough. We must do more to help manufacturers and homeowners, in VT and other states.
#VT is one of the top states per capita for primary wood heating & for wood stove emissions. The problem is not new stoves sold today, but older dirtier stoves still in use. The rebate program @SenatorCarper proposed is WHAT WE NEED to help Vermonters upgrade to cleaner stoves.
I strongly support efforts to incentivize the purchase of new wood stoves that are cleaner-burning, use less fuel, and reduce energy costs. @EPWDems @EPWGOP @American_Heart @LungAssociation @HPBA_ @veic should make putting new, cleaner stoves in homes a top priority.

Topic - Ventricular Tachycardia!

Agenda:

1/10 – Ventricular Tachycardia
Simplified approach to evaluate tachycardia:
Rule #1 – If HD unstable ➡️ shock!

If HD stable, sit down & think.
Step # 1 - QRS: wide or narrow?
Step # 2 - Rhythm: regular or irregular?

This will narrow DDx!
#FITSurvivalGuide #ACCFIT
2/10 - Wide complex tachycardia

Always consider clinical Scenario!
Look for history of MI and cardiomyopathy ➡️ strongly favor #VT!

* If structural heart disease is present, you will be correct 9/10 times with diagnosis of VT!

Yesterday the @TimesArgus published a story about the senseless murder of Courtney Gaboriault at the hands of her abusive ex-boyfriend. This fundamentally flawed article demands a formal response. #btv #vt #vtpoli timesargus.com/articles/offic…
Despite the headline, the @timesargus spends considerable space glorifying a domestic abuser and murderer, and dismissing his victim as an afterthought. And let’s be clear: He is no victim. #btv #vt #vtpoli
The first mention in the story of a human being is of the killer, in the lede, referring to him in positive terms. #btv #vt #vtpoli
