Today, @RepBarbaraLee & I named 5 vice chairs to the Task Force on Poverty & Opportunity. These members have a deep track record of leadership on poverty & economic justice issues & I’m excited to see what ideas they bring to the mission of ending poverty. https://bit.ly/3eXtWJz
The Minority Leader has "had it" with one of the members of his Conference – a member willing to tell the truth about the 2020 election.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses in #MD05 and across the country have managed through unprecedented circumstances and provided our communities with compassionate care. I am proud to honor their work on this #NationalNursesDay, and every day.
Pleased to see @POTUS’ goal of preserving 30% of the US’ land & waters by 2030 in the #AmericatheBeautiful plan. I look forward to working w the @WhiteHouse to identify further legislative actions that support bold & necessary environmental protections. https://bit.ly/3uqa9cv
In our first 100 days of the 117th Congress, House Democrats passed the #ForThePeople Act, which includes a number of provisions to make voting easier for all Americans. I urge the Senate to take up & pass this legislation.
Once again, GOP-run legislatures & governors are working to suppress the vote. This FL law attacks the bedrock of our democracy & underscores the need for voting rights protections nationwide. House Dems remain committed to ballot access #ForThePeople. https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/06/politics/desantis-signs-florida-bill-voting-restrictions/index.html?utm_term=162030780465858ae5b96152a&utm_source=cnn_Breaking+News&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1620307804660&bt_ee=ZF0%2Bd2ZvaV9fwWVAZqkVdgHnWWMQuNXPEkQrnQrCZETcASlbY9MLZd1fyzfNdjOL&bt_ts=1620307804660
Glad to see nearly one million Americans have signed up for health care coverage during the Biden Admin’s special enrollment period. I encourage everyone to visit http://HealthCare.gov to find a plan that works for you and your family. #GetCovered https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/552109-special-enrollment-sees-almost-940000-americans-sign-up-for-affordable-care
