This morning I joined @SquawkCNBC to discuss our progress in negotiations to advance the full #BuildBackBetter agenda, as well as Republicans’ irresponsibility in regards to the debt limit. Watch my full interview: https://bit.ly/3E6bQjv
I spoke on the House Floor this morning to thank former President George W. Bush for his remarks on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, which reminded us of what true Republican leadership looks like and encouraged unity as we work toward a better tomorrow for all Americans.
#TuneIn around 8:30 a.m. this morning to watch my interview on @SquawkCNBC focused on Democrats’ #BuildBackBetter Agenda that will ensure families across the country have the tools they need to #MakeItInAmerica. Join us live here: https://www.cnbc.com/live-tv/
Withholding info from the @January6Cmte is no less than an act of betrayal of the American people & our Constitutional democracy. This is a moment of reckoning for our country. That is why the House is voting to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress. https://bit.ly/3vzo1SP
The Build Back Better Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to support children, families, & workers by expanding paid family & medical leave, making childcare more accessible, fixing our broken long-term care system, & much more.
We must get this done because #CareCantWait!
Senate GOP’s vote to block consideration of the #FreedomToVote Act is a rejection of Americans’ right to vote & further evidence of the threat the filibuster poses to our democracy. Defending the integrity of our democracy should not be a partisan issue. https://bit.ly/2Z5q9pw
Happy birthday to my friend @RepMikeLevin from #CA49, a climate champion as a Member of @NRDems & @ClimateCrisis. Thank you for your work to ensure veterans have the resources & tools they need to be successful as Chair of @VetAffairsDems’ Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity.
Congress has a duty to Americans to defend the right to vote. I urge Senate Republicans to join Senate Dems in voting to take up the #FreedomToVote Act, which mirrors critical protections against gerrymandering, dark money, & restrictive voting laws in the House-passed #HR1.
The House passed the Violence Against Women Act in March to take long-overdue steps to strengthen protections against gender-based violence & improve access to justice for survivors. During #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth, it is long past time for the Senate to act on #VAWA21.
