Happy birthday to the Chair of @TransportDems, @RepPeterDeFazio. I will miss you in Congress next year.
Wishing a happy birthday to my friend @RepWexton from #VA10. Thank you for your work to build better lives for working families in America through your roles on @AppropsDems and @HouseBudgetDems.
Happy birthday to my good friend @RepAdams, who has been instrumental in addressing the maternal mortality crisis as Co-Founder of the @BMHCaucus. I’m grateful for your leadership as Chair of the @HBCUCaucus.
Our veterans are our heroes and they deserve quality care. That is why I joined in applauding legislation to strengthen the delivery of health care and provide much-needed upgrades to the current Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Prince George’s County. https://bit.ly/3MY8iEP
House Democrats are working to #ProtectRoe and will not stand idly by as Republican-led state legislatures trample on settled precedent and constitutional rights.
This restrictive bill signed by Gov. Stitt that will ban nearly all abortions in OK is a shameful attack on women’s freedom to make her own health care decisions. Women & their doctors should be making choices about their reproductive care, not the govt. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/05/19/oklahoma-abortion-ban-fertilization/
Wishing a happy birthday to my friend @janschakowsky from #IL09. Thank you for your service to our Caucus as Senior Chief Deputy Whip and your advocacy on behalf of America’s seniors as Co-Founder and Co-Chair of the Task Force on Aging and Families.
I spoke this week on the tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Prayers and moments of silence are appropriate, but they are not enough: Congress has a responsibility to the people of this country to try to prevent tragedies.
I’m proud House Dems passed the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act. We recognize that violence is not "legitimate political discourse." We understand that having law and order means protecting the Constitution and ensuring ours is a republic of laws, not terror of arms or threats.
While our nation is still grieving from violent domestic terror attacks, Senate Republicans undermined our public safety by refusing to consider Democratic-led legislation to strengthen law enforcement’s hand in keeping Americans safe from these threats. https://bit.ly/3PN7AvS
