October is #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth. We must continue to raise awareness, hold abusers accountable, & support legislation to address this. This is why I cosponsored H.R 1892, which provides a clean, one-year reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

 

🚨If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence, call the @ndvh hotline at 1-800-799-7233.

Public trust in our nation’s institutions is at its lowest point in decades.

Question 4: What does Congress need to do to ensure everyone has access to clean water?
thehill.com → We need the government to fully enforce the Clean Water Act

 

With 2 in 10 Delawareans relying on wells, access to #CleanWater is crucial - but we can't stop there.

#CleanWater must also be affordable. That's why I introduced #HR3293, to help low-income homes pay their drinking water & wastewater bills.

Rep. Rochester was commenting on this link from thehill.com

The greatest threat to our water is government inaction.

The White House is scrambling to find Plan B options for its climate change legislation, after Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia said he won't back a broader spending bill with Biden's signature clean electricity program. nytimes.com → Democrats Weigh Carbon Tax After Manchin Rejects Key Climate Provision

 

Putting a #PriceOnCarbon is the biggest & boldest step we can take to respond to climate change.

My bill, HR 2307, the Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act, will deliver near zero carbon emissions by 2050 & will rebate 100% of the polluters' payments to America's families.

Government policies have caused supply chain problems and inflation.

Four corporate meat processors control 85% of the US market. Their monopoly exists due to government over-regulation. Farmers and consumers suffer as a result.

My bipartisan bill, the PRIME Act would fix this!

 

HR 3835 would right-size regulations on meat processing, freeing up supply chains by empowering local businesses to serve local consumers.

It has 47 bipartisan sponsors in the House and 7 sponsors in the Senate (as S 2001). Here are the House sponsors:

When it comes to beating #breastcancer, timing is everything.

That's why I co-sponsored HR 3183, the Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act, which grants women with Metastatic Breast Cancer access to Medicare coverage without a 24-month wait. 🎀

 

Let’s talk about reparations in 2021 like we did in 2020. We’re not waiting for the midterms.

Black voters are tired of issues that are used to excite them, but then given excuse after excuse to pass them.

It’s time to bring HR40 to a vote.

Our nation is at a critical turning point, and we cannot afford to spend another $3.5T, which will only make matters worse. Rather than spending more money we don’t have, Congress should take steps to get wasteful government spending under control before it’s too late.

 

Now, more than ever, we need to pass the balanced budget amendment I introduced again this year. More: congress.gov → H.J.Res.3 - 117th Congress (2021-2022): Proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

We introduced #HR3054, the 21st Century Federal Writers' Project Act, to create a new jobs program for out-of-work writers and journalists so they can capture American stories that may otherwise go untold. Pleased to receive broad support for our bill. dcreport.org → A 21st Century Federal Writers' Project Proposed | DCReport.org

 

Growing up, I wanted to write novels and tell stories like #NY17's very own Toni Morrison.

Writers, and their stories, shape how we see the world and each other. They deserve our support, which is why I'm cosponsoring @RepTedLiu's 21st Century Federal Writers’ Project Act.

If @DeptVetAffairs can negotiate drug prices & the federal government can negotiate the price of a lifesaving vaccine, Medicare should be allowed to negotiate fair drug prices for ALL Americans – regardless of where they get their insurance from. We need #HR3 in #BuildBackBetter.

Q1: Tell us about yourself or your organization and the work that you do to build an inclusive, multiracial democracy where every vote is counted and every voice is heard. #FreedomToVoteTownHall

 

A1: After SCOTUS dismantled Section 2 of the VRA, I introduced w/ Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ-7) the Inclusive Elections Act, which would outlaw discriminatory voter suppression laws and guarantee inclusive elections.

I'm thrilled that our bill passed as part of #HR4. #FreedomToVoteTownHall

 

Community health centers provide primary health services to more than 29 million people in over 12,000 rural & urban communities in the US. However, most centers lack physical therapy services, which is why I co-lead HR 5365 to expand this access to those who need it most.

 

#Votingrights are at the core of our democracy and must be protected.

#HR1 and #HR4 are how we preserve our democracy for future generations.

 

Thank you to Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL-15) for cosponsoring HR 3860, legislation I introduced to prevent members of the Armed Forces from being forced to take the COVID-19 vaccine. It’s great to have your support!

 

The House has passed #HR8, my bipartisan bill to expand background checks and save lives from gun violence. But abuse of the filibuster in the Senate has prevented that bill from becoming law. This is unconscionable #TheFilibusterIsKillingUs.

 

I am working with my colleague Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX-27) to ensure our veterans are receiving the quality care they deserve. One of our bill’s provisions will enforce biannual training requirements on credentialing for all hiring officials in VA facilities. #HR217

Every day we don't pass the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, we risk people dying from treatable diseases just because of the cost of their medication.

We need to pass #HR3 because no one should have to choose between their life-saving medication and their rent.

 

Last month, the TX GOP passed #SB1 to suppress communities of color and Latinos in TX and silence our voices.

We cannot let them succeed.

Congress still has the responsibility to pass #HR1 & #HR4 to protect the sacred right to vote and make your voice heard.

Big Pharma's price gouging hurts every patient and every taxpayer in this country. It's no wonder why both President Trump and President Biden campaigned on letting Medicare negotiate drug prices. The American people want and need #HR3.
