As a proud father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, I join in wishing all the dads and father figures in #MD05 and across America a happy #FathersDay and thanking them for all they do to build better lives for our nation’s children.
Today, I join in observing #Juneteenth and reflecting on the triumph of freedom over slavery in our country. Today, let us continue our journey to fulfil the promise of America, making our union, each new day and each new year, a little more perfect. bit.ly/39AtylL
Wishing a happy birthday to my friend from #CA09, @RepMcNerney, who has used his expertise as an engineer to expand America’s economic opportunity and research capacity on @EnergyCommerce and @HouseScience. I will miss you in Congress next year.
Today we're excited to share a special #PrideMonth message from @LeaderHoyer -- a strong supporter of our caucus who has brought numerous pro-LGBTQ+ bills to the floor throughout his tenure as Majority Leader #Pride2022#Pride
Our veterans deserve quality care, and I am glad that the Senate passed the #PACTAct yesterday to strengthen the delivery of health care and provide much-needed upgrades to the current Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Prince George’s County. bit.ly/3HBIyfB
I was glad to participate in yesterday’s Service Academy Tea and congratulate all of our terrific appointees! I thank each of this year’s class for their commitment to serving our country and look forward to what they will achieve in the years ahead.
Honored to join @CapitolHillCBA, including members of my staff, for an important discussion on the path forward following an important MRA increase to improve staff pay. I’ll continue to advocate for policies to recruit & retain talented, diverse staff in service #ForThePeople.
I join in remembering the Emanuel 9, who were cruelly murdered as they worshipped at Mother Emanuel Church seven years ago today. In their memory, and all those lost to domestic extremism and gun violence, we continue the work to stamp out racism and hate in all forms.
The work that @January6thCmte is doing is important to our democracy, & House Democrats are working tirelessly to bring down costs for American families. I was glad to join @MadisonSiriusXM to talk about these issues this morning. Listen here: bit.ly/3OkKQ4R
Proud to join the MD Delegation in the House in securing the inclusion of $500M toward a new, consolidated FBI HQ. We remain confident that the MD offers the best location for the FBI headquarters and look forward to GSA making a site selection this fall. bit.ly/39xPeyW
House Democrats just voted to #LowerFoodandFuelCosts for Americans at the grocery store and at the gas pump. This bill, which contains bipartisan provisions, would help farmers create stronger food systems and address supply chain disruptions #ForThePeople.
The #LowerFoodandFuelCosts bill is a positive step towards decreasing the cost of necessary goods like fuel and food for the American people. I urge my colleagues on both side of the aisle to vote yes and show our constituents that Congress is working together on their behalf.
President Trump’s efforts to pressure VP Pence into overturning a free and fair election threatened our democracy & directly contributed to the Jan. 6 attack. Today, our committee will lay out the facts of what happened. Tune in: 1:00 pm (ET)/10:00 am (PT)
I joined @LinseyDavis on ABC News Live Prime to discuss House Democrats’ work to lower costs for working families, the @January6thCmte's public hearings, and ongoing conversations on legislation to address gun violence. Read more here: bit.ly/39sbkmh
Glad the Biden Admin announced strong measures today to combat PFAS pollution & ensure clean drinking water for all Americans. These steps, bolstered by funding authorized in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will address water pollution & improve the health of our communities. twitter.com/EPA/status/153…
Happy birthday to my friend @RepAdamSmith from #WA09, a strong advocate for our military personnel and their families as Chair of @HASCDemocrats. I am grateful for your commitment to make America and our allies safer.
Honored to share a birthday with the @BaltimoreBanner! Our local news is essential to our democracy and makes for a strong and informed Maryland. I congratulate the Banner on its launch and look forward to their reporting. twitter.com/BaltimoreBanne…
Reducing disparities in access to financial services will help reduce costs for families, create jobs, and strengthen the resilience of our economy for everyone. I’m glad to bring @RepMaxineWaters’ #HR2543 to the House Floor today and urge a yes vote.
Appreciate @POTUS signing a historic executive order during #PrideMonth to protect the #LGBTQ community against discriminatory legislative attacks nationwide. I brought the #EqualityAct to the House Floor earlier this Congress & urge the Senate to act on this critical bill.
Today marks ten years of the #DACA program, established by President Obama in 2012. Dreamers deserve to remain in the nation they have called home since childhood; they should not have to live in fear of being separated from their families and communities. bit.ly/3NVyfFH
The #LowerFoodAndFuelCostsAct will:
✅ Shore up the food and agriculture supply chain
✅ Increase competition in the meat & poultry sectors
✅ Cut food and gas costs for consumers
Let's get this done for families across the country.
Today, I was proud to join in voting to pass @RepDebDingell’s Recovering America’s Wildlife Act through the House. This bipartisan legislation will promote greater sustainability for critical wildlife in our country & science-based conservation solutions. bit.ly/3HmDb3T
Wishing a happy birthday to the @USArmy, which was founded on this day in 1775. I am grateful for those who have served in the Army’s uniform with honor over the last 250 years and join in celebrating them and their loved ones.
As we observe #PrideMonth, I am pleased to see @OversightDems markup the # LGBTQI+ Data Inclusion Act to ensure lawmakers have the full and accurate data they need to better serve their LGBTQI+ constituents and look forward to bringing it to the Floor this work period.
The health of our wildlife and wild spaces is inextricably linked to the wellbeing of our country and our planet. I’m glad to vote today to #RecoverWildlife, create jobs, and prioritize conservation for future generations.
On #FlagDay, I join in celebrating our nation’s flag as a symbol of America’s founding principles of freedom, justice, and equality #ForThePeople, and sharing my gratitude to those who have sacrificed to defend it.
Finally, I said that yesterday's @January6thCmte hearing continued to demonstrate a compelling case to the American people that 1/6 was not just a violent assault on the Capitol, but an attack on our democracy itself devised and incited at the highest levels of government.
I also said that the Senate's bipartisan gun violence prevention framework is an important step to save lives. House Dems will be ready to act on that legislation once it passes the Senate. The American public is demanding that Congress act to #EndGunViolence.
I told press during my weekly Pen and Pad briefing that House Democrats will advance bills this week focused on lowering costs for Americans & tackling inflation, in addition to Senate-passed legislation to extend security protections to the families of Supreme Court Justices.
We're facing an urgent biodiversity crisis in the U.S. Failure to act now means thousands of our nation's fish and wildlife will become extinct.
Today, the House is voting on legislation to increase funding to recover and protect America's wildlife for generations to come. #RAWA
I was proud to bring the #OceanShippingReformAct to the Floor & join with bipartisan colleagues to pass it & to send it to @POTUS' desk. This bill is part of House Dems' effort to tackle inflation, strengthen supply chains, & bring costs down for Americans.bit.ly/3zROvU7
As Majority Leader, I am proud to bring the bipartisan #OceanShippingReformAct to the House Floor tonight to bring down costs for Americans and strengthen our supply chains. I urge a strong yes vote to send this critical bill to @POTUS’ desk to be signed into law.
Happy birthday to my friend @RepJerryNadler, a steadfast advocate for civil rights, equal protection under the law, and justice for all as Chair of @HouseJudiciary. I’m grateful for your service to our Caucus.
From Bowie to Broadway! I join in congratulating @BowieState student Myles Frost on his Tony award for his role as Michael Jackson in MJ the Musical. I am so impressed by your moonwalk and look forward to seeing your career take off on the stage! bit.ly/3xNjSOa
Wishing a happy birthday to my friend @EleanorNorton, a tireless advocate for #DCStatehood. I am grateful for your leadership in the work to expand economic opportunity and good-paying jobs by modernizing our nation’s infrastructure as a Member of @TransportDems.
Thursday’s hearing was only the beginning of the @January6thCmte presenting our findings to the American people.
This morning, we will uncover the Big Lie perpetuated by the former President w/ new details & testimony.
📺 Tune in: 10am ET/7am PT 📺bit.ly/3ttjNwkM4
Today, we remember and mourn the 49 innocent lives lost at #Pulse Nightclub six years ago. As we observe both Pride Month and National Gun Violence Awareness Month, House Democrats remain committed to continuing the work to achieve equality for all and #EndGunViolence.
House Democrats have long been committed to preventing gun violence in America, and while more action is needed, the Senate framework announced today will save lives and help build a safer America for our nation’s children.
As Majority Leader, I was proud to bring the #ProtectingOurKids Act and the Federal Extreme Risk Order Protection Act to the House Floor last week. I urge the Senate to take swift action on these proposals to #EndGunViolence.
