We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Ron Wyden is associated, including Americans and Oregon. Most recently, Ron Wyden has been quoted saying: “This just seems to be across-the-board, systemic rewriting of the separation of powers. Everybody understands that in the first days of a new administration you're kind of finding your feet and may take a little bit of extra time, and people like me will acknowledge that. That's not what's going on. This really feels like a pattern of just saying, We don't believe in getting back to Congress as they try to carry out their oversight responsibilities.” in the article In letter to Trump, Democrats accuse White House of intentionally withholding information.

Ron Wyden quotes

My message for the president is short enough to tweet. Today across America we are taking the gloves off. It's time to knock off the tax rip offs. No more Cayman Island accounts for the insiders. No more tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas. No more special breaks for Wall Street. Knock off the secrecy, Mr. President, and publicly release your own tax returns. Disclosing tax returns is the very lowest ethical bar for a president and we are going to insist that he clear it.feedback

There is no outcome in which the administration sabotaging insurance markets persuades Democrats to pass Trumpcare, a disastrous proposal which would only make our health care system worse.

The DOE has the ability to make things right – first by reinstating its rules to punish contractors that retaliate against whistleblowers like Sandra Black, and second, by penalizing this specific contractor for retaliating against her. The DOE's failure to take any action would send a dangerous signal to contractors at the Energy Department and across the government that it's still open season on whistleblowers.feedback

It's terrible for seniors. Trumpcare forces older Americans to pay 5 times the amount younger Americans will–an age tax–and slashes Medicaid benefits for nursing home care that two out of three Americans in nursing homes rely on.feedback

Representative Nunes's statements would appear to reveal classified information, which is a serious concern. With regard to the substance of his claims, I have no idea what he is talking about.feedback

That's the way to really lose credibility. I think you let the facts drive the answer to that.feedback

Politicized assertions by White House chief of staff Priebus about what may or may not be the findings of an FBI investigation are exactly the wrong way for the public to hear about an issue that is of grave consequence to our democracy. The American people deserve real transparency, which means Director Comey needs to come forward, in an open hearing, and answer questions.feedback

If the White House chief of staff can make public claims about the supposed conclusions of an FBI investigation, then Director Comey can come clean with the American people.feedback

The Mnuchin rule is already being broken as Republicans look to strip away hundreds of billions of dollars in Affordable Care Act tax credits for working Americans to pay for a giant tax break for the wealthy. Bottom line is it's unfair to cut benefits that the middle class depends on, all so the wealthy pay a lower rate.feedback

We all know what the stakes are with the new chairman of the FCC. He is prepared to do the bidding of the big cable companies at the expense of consumers. This is another one where, early on, it's going to feel like we are really pushing the rock up the hill. But if it comes down to the citizens and the people at the grassroots against the special interests, then we can win that.feedback
