Today is the LAST DAY for West Virginians without health insurance to apply for coverage during the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Open Enrollment Period. I encourage every West Virginian without health insurance to visit healthcare.gov to find a plan today.
We are forever grateful our miners put their lives on the line every day to power our great nation. Jeffrey served our state and our country during his time in the mines, and his sacrifices will never be forgotten.
Gayle and I are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Jeffrey A. Phillips at the Ohio County Mine. His family, friends and loved ones are in our prayers and we ask all West Virginians to join us during this difficult time.
GOOD NEWS: More than $500 MILLION will be invested into #WV's bridges over 5 years thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill. This funding will address our crumbling bridges to ensure every West Virginian is driving on safe roads, bridges & highways. sen.gov/4KVQ
And when Dr. Califf appeared before the Senate HELP Committee, I made it clear that the FDA needs leadership who will institute a culture change, not continue to fail to keep Americans safe. sen.gov/3JQ7
Instead, President Biden nominated Dr. Califf, who has significant ties to the pharmaceutical industry, in November to serve as FDA Commissioner. I strongly opposed his nomination, which is an insult to those who have been impacted by the drug epidemic. sen.gov/23WQ
In March of last year, @SenatorHassan and I led 5 of our colleagues in calling on @POTUS to bring new leadership to the FDA to address this crisis that has been exacerbated by the COVID pandemic. sen.gov/127X
Americans & West Virginians deserve competent leadership at the @FDA who will take immediate action to address the drug epidemic that has killed more than 100,000 Americans in the last year. sen.gov/ZOPL
.@NucorCorp's state-of-the-art steel mill will employ West Virginians in good-paying, long-term jobs. Investments from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill have made #WV an even more attractive location to companies like Nucor, ensuring #WV will continue to see major investments.
It’s not too late to sign up for health insurance at healthcare.gov during the Open Enrollment Period. I encourage every West Virginian without health insurance to visit healthcare.gov to find a plan that works for you and your family before the Jan 15 deadline.
WATCH: In 2021, I secured billions in pandemic relief for #WV and our cities & counties, voted for a historic, bipartisan investment in #infrastructure, and helped tens of thousands of #WV families. Take a look back at my work in Washington and across the state of WV in 2021:
Harry Reid was a quintessential public servant. He served the people of Nevada for decades and was a giant in the United States Senate. My prayers are with his family and friends as they mourn this incredible loss.
WATCH: During this season of giving and reflection, Gayle and I are reminded of the importance of family, the source of life’s greatest joys and deepest bonds. As this year comes to a close, let us all reflect on our many blessings as we celebrate with family & loved ones.
Senator Isakson was one of the most decent human beings I ever had the pleasure of knowing. His career was one of public service, not self service. Georgia has lost a favorite son and our country has lost a true patriot. My heart is with his family and everyone who loved him.
Chairman @Sen_JoeManchin & Ranking Member @SenJohnBarrasso just introduced the the Fission for the Future Act, bipartisan legislation that would support the commercial deployment of advanced nuclear reactors.
WATCH: @SecBecerra joined me in West Virginia last week for the ribbon cutting ceremony for Marion Neighborhood Hospital, #WV’s first small-format hospital. I'm proud of this critical investment in #RuralHealth that will serve north-central #WV for many years to come.
