My parents immigrated from India in 1971 when I was 3 years old. They chose America to be our home, learned a new language, embraced new traditions, and sacrificed to give their children a shot at the American dream. Image
I was 15 yrs old when a kid on my school bus told me to “go back where you came from.”
This is my home and my country. I proudly took an oath of allegiance when I became a naturalized citizen. My family has worked hard to give back to this nation that welcomed me as a little girl.
For our President to repeat the same words to ANY American that a high school bully spoke to me 35 years ago is shameful. It feeds into a hateful & demonizing narrative that has no place in our nation.
I implore all elected officials to condemn the comments made and stand up for the values on which our great nation was founded. #WeBelong #AZ06

Today, I dropped my new Ethics Plan. Let’s talk about why we need to address corruption in Washington TODAY.

@RepDavid & his history of unethical behavior:
A Thread: (1/9)
The #s:
11: the # of ethics violations @RepDavid admitted to
424: the number of pages in the investigative report detailing his misbehavior
435: the number of Representatives who reprimanded him (ALL OF THEM)
$50,000: the pricey fine he paid for his violations (2/9)
He received a *bipartisan* rebuke for gross impropriety, unethical behavior, and abuse of *taxpayer* money

He managed to do the impossible: unite both parties to condemn his behavior! (3/9)

Okay let’s talk.

The truth about @RepDavid and his betrayal of Americans with pre-existing conditions: A Thread. #AZ06 (1/7)
Rep. Schweikert recently published a misleading constituent newsletter to distract from his HORRIBLE record of voting to rip away protections for nearly 400,000 Arizonans w/ pre-existing conditions. (2/7)
He has voted over and over and over again to eliminate essential protections that prevent insurance companies from denying coverage or charging more to cover Americans w/ pre-existing conditions. (3/7)

Okay let’s talk.

The truth about @RepDavid and the @USPS: A Thread (1/7)
Over the weekend, Schweikert voted against bipartisan legislation that would allocate the necessary emergency funds to operate the Postal Service.

Luckily this bill passed, no thanks to him. (2/7)
Why does the USPS need an influx of funding? The current administration has made consequential changes to the mail service's operations & now seniors’ social security checks, bills, and prescription medication for veterans are being delivered late. (3/7)

It’s outrageous and inexcusable that Congress has completely failed in its job to support families and businesses across this country by putting partisan politics above real solutions in being unable to pass a new relief package that is badly needed. (1/5)
And it’s equally irresponsible that Social Security and Medicare -- benefits earned from a lifetime of hard work that are necessary to ensure Americans can retire with dignity – are being put at risk for political purposes as a result. (2/5)
This shouldn’t be difficult – if Congress cared half as much about working families and small businesses as they do their big money corporate special interest donors, they’d work together and get the job done to help our communities. (3/5)

I am honored to be the nominee in Arizona’s 6th Congressional District. Thank you to the voters who have put their trust in me and to the volunteers who made it happen 💙#AZ06 (1/6) Image
For nearly a decade, our district has been represented by a D.C. politician who puts the profits of his special interest corporate donors over positive change that will make life better for working families here in Arizona. (2/6)
Rep. Schweikert has betrayed his oath to serve our community, misused taxpayer resources for his own personal benefit, and lied about it. (3/6)
