The Democratic Whip of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Maryland's 5th Congressional District.
Too many Americans struggle with the cost of prescription drugs, and they need relief now. I am so proud that the House passed #HR3 this week to #LowerDrugCosts , and I urge the Senate to take it up and the President to sign it into law.
20 years ago, we launched the first Judy Center, which @HillaryClinton visited. Today, there are 53 centers across #MD . Judy always said our most crucial responsibility was to protect & educate our children, and I know she would be so proud of the progress we’ve made.
It has been 7 years since 26 children and teachers were taken from us at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It is shameful that, after such a senseless, horrific tragedy, the GOP still will not act. I continue to urge the Senate to take up House-passed legislation to #EndGunViolence .
If you read Rep. @RashidaTlaib ’s comments, it is clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are taking them out of context. They must stop, and they owe her an apology.
The escalating violence from this weekend and today against civilians strikes at the heart of Hong Kong’s vibrant democracy. I am watching these developments closely and stand with the pro-democracy protestors.
