This is a solemn and somber day for our country. @HouseJudDems  has recommended articles of impeachment against POTUS, and next week, these articles will come to the House Floor for consideration. Read my full statement here:

Open Enrollment ends this Sunday, December 15. Don’t miss your chance to #GetCovered  for 2020. I encourage every American to visit @HealthCareGov  to review their options.

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.

This week, House Democrats: ✅Delivered on our promise to make health care costs more affordable by passing #HR3  to #LowerDrugCosts  for Americans, ✅Passed the #NDAA , to strengthen national security and provide paid parental leave for federal employees.

Happy birthday to my good friend and an outstanding colleague in the MD delegation, @RepRaskin . As we conduct our oversight responsibilities, our Caucus is grateful for your knowledge and insight as a Constitutional scholar.

Wishing a happy birthday to Congress’s only electrician, @DonaldNorcross . Thank you for fighting for America’s working men and women, including your efforts to #RaiseTheWage  and expand opportunity.

Happy birthday, @RepAnnaEshoo ! Thanks for your work as Chair of @EnergyCommerce ’s Health Subcommittee, including strengthening public health and defending women’s access to health care.

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.

This week, House Dems passed Senate Republican funding bills to reopen govt. But rather than take up & sign those bills that are agreed on, & are refusing to end this . Read how the imp #TrumpShutdownct  of their shutdown is growing:

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.

I urge to as Chair o #RemoveNunes  the House Intel Cmte. Altering a classified memo after the Cmte’s vote is dishonest, violates House Rules, & demonstrates the lengths he is willing to go undermine the rule of law in order to protect POTUS.

From @AARP : Under newest version of #TrumpCare , 25 million 50-64 yr olds with a pre-ex condition would be at risk of being denied coverage
