Last quote by Nancy Pelosi

While we support the tougher sanctions on North Korea, which the House has already passed, I am concerned that adding them to this bill instead of standalone legislation will cause further procedural delays in the Senate. It is essential that the addition of North Korea to this package does not prevent Congress from immediately enacting Russia sanctions legislation and sending it to the President's desk before the August recess.feedback

I think I'm worth the trouble. You know what? I want them to win. I want them to win. If I were bothered by that, I wouldn't be raising the money. What is curious to me is people say, Raise us all the money and then step aside.' It's like, what?feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

With this order, President Trump is making his disregard for transparency and his lack of respect for Congress's oversight role crystal clear.feedback

Jun 02 2017

May 26 2017 - Republican Party

We like to win, don't get me wrong. But I'm just saying, history is on our side. We'll keep up the enthusiasm, no question about that. We have one of the greatest organizers ever – Donald Trump.feedback

May 16 2017 - Russia

The fact is that anyone who has anything to do with intelligence, the one thing you always say is, I cannot confirm or deny that that is true. So the president could be saying something that's in the public domain, but confirming it to the Russians in a way that is very dangerous.feedback

This accidental, messy approach to intelligence is very endangering.feedback

May 10 2017 - American politics

This is deadly. This is deadly.feedback

May 10 2017 - Russia

From what I hear Republican Senators saying, they don't have any interest in passing this bill as it is.feedback

They have this vote tattooed on them. This is a scar they will carry. Whatever happens down the road, the members of the House Republican caucus will be forever identified with the worst aspects of the bill they have passed.feedback

May 04 2017 - Obamacare

We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it – away from the fog of the controversy.feedback

Republicans have made Trumpcare even more dangerous and destructive than the last time they brought it to the floor.feedback

May 04 2017 - Trumpcare

Trumpcare means heart-stopping premium increases for people with preexisting conditions, and no Band-Aid amendment will fix it.feedback

People will say 'I am a no and give me some fake reason to make it look like the bill is better.feedback

May 03 2017 - American politics

May 03 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Democrats wholeheartedly agreed, and at every point in the process of passing the Affordable Care Act, we ensured an up-to-date CBO estimate was available for the legislation being voted on. Now, House Republicans are hoping to bring the latest version of Trumpcare to the Floor before the CBO can reveal its catastrophic impacts on millions of American families.feedback

May 03 2017 - Obamacare

Republicans are clearly terrified of their members and the American people seeing the full consequences of their plan to gut critical protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions. As then-Ranking Member Paul Ryan wrote to the Director of the CBO in 2009, Before Congress changes health care as the American people know it, we must know the likely consequences' of the legislation.feedback

The American people have a right to know the full consequences of Trumpcare before their representatives vote on it.feedback

May 03 2017 - Obamacare

But if you're a deconstructionist, then there's just almost no common ground.feedback

May 03 2017 - Obamacare

That was very important because lots of time the outside will say, While we're at it, why don't we go for single payer?' I'm like, Save that for another day! Because you're not going to get anything unless we kill this bill. And the only way we're going to kill this bill is going to be to focus on what it does.feedback

May 03 2017 - Obamacare

It is exactly the same thing. If you want to win, you have to have the clarity of message of 'How this affects YOU' in the clearest possible way, not 'How this runs counter to MY vision of public policy'. We fully intend to win the House. In another few days, we'll be a quarter of the way (from the last election to the next one). Can you believe that? In the next six months, I'll be able to tell you better.feedback

May 03 2017 - Obamacare

I grew up Nancy D'Alesandro, in Baltimore, Maryland; in Little Italy; in a very devout Catholic family; fiercely patriotic; proud of our town and heritage, and staunchly Democratic. Most of those people – my family, extended family – are not pro-choice. You think I'm kicking them out of the Democratic Party? … You know what? That's why Donald Trump is president of the United States – the evangelicals and the Catholics, anti-marriage equality, anti-choice. That's how he got to be president. Everything was trumped, literally and figuratively by that.feedback

May 03 2017

I don't think much of that stuff is going to survive.feedback

May 03 2017

Up to 17 million children who have pre-existing conditions can no longer be denied coverage by insurers.feedback

In a defeat for President Trump, the [deal] does not fund the immoral and unwise border wall or create a cruel new deportation force.feedback

May 01 2017

The omnibus (spending bill) is in sharp contrast to President Trump's dangerous plans to steal billions from lifesaving research, instead increasing funding for the NIH (National Institutes of Health) by $2 billion. Now, the members of our caucus will assess the whole package and weigh its equities.feedback

May 01 2017 - Republican Party

Apr 27 2017

We are never going to shut government down. In fact, we don't even have the power to do so. They have the majority. They have the president. They have the Senate. They have the House. Any shutting down of government, the ball is in their court.feedback

President Trump's tax plan is short on details and long on giveaways to big corporations and billionaires.feedback

Apr 27 2017

Apr 27 2017

The same trickle-down economics that undermined the middle class are alive and well in the president's tax plan.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Our major concerns in these negotiations have been about funding for the wall and uncertainty about the ... payments crucial to the stability of the marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act. We've now made progress on both of these fronts.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Trumpcare

Many would lose access to affordable health coverage entirely, on top of the 24 million hard-working Americans who would already lose insurance under the original TrumpCare language.feedback

Apr 26 2017

Apr 25 2017

Did we ever think we would see the day when we would say, Please bring back George W. Bush'? We really did work together.feedback

Apr 25 2017

The president's comments this evening are welcome news given the bipartisan opposition to the wall, and the obstacle it has been to the continuing bipartisan negotiations in the appropriations committees.feedback

Apr 24 2017

I do not think the election was a referendum on building a wall to the tune of tens of billions of dollars.feedback

Apr 24 2017

No, he did not promise he would take food out of the mouths of babies.feedback

We have the leverage and they have the exposure.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - AT&T

That would be bad news for consumers in Tribune's markets in two ways. First, consumers would lose an independent voice in their media market, and second, consumers could see their cable bills go up because Sinclair charges cable operators more than Tribune for retransmission consent.feedback

Apr 14 2017

People would say to us, Isn't that a lot of money for a barrier? For a net? And I would say, No it's not a lot of money for a life. For all of these lives.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - Obamacare

Refusing to make the Cost Sharing Reduction payments has no purpose but to hurt millions of people, and manufacture a crisis.feedback

Apr 09 2017

Members of Congress know what they can pass. Maybe the White House doesn't. And that's – that line of communication is where you might see some – more difference of opinion than even between Democrats and Republicans in the Congress.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Syria conflict

The President's action and any response demands that we immediately do our duty. Congress must live up to its Constitutional responsibility to debate an Authorization of the Use of Military Force against a sovereign nation.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Syria conflict

As heartbreaking as Assad's chemical weapons attacks on his own people was, the crisis in Syria will not be resolved by one night of airstrikes. The killing will not stop without a comprehensive political solution to end the violence. The American people are owed a comprehensive strategy with clear objectives to keep our brave men and women in uniform safe and avoid collateral damage to innocent civilians in Syria.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Keeps doing a limbo dance. How low can you go?feedback

Apr 02 2017

Right now he looks, I don't know, in personal disarray. In some ways, he had a successful campaign, Make America Great Again,' something that is obviously very appealing to many people.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - American politics

We would not be opposed to any border security measures that are not the wall – increasing technology. There are better things that we can be doing.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - American politics

We want legislation that meets the needs of the American people and does not have the poisonous riders in it. We have to see the substance of what is in the bill.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

We don't want people to take an immunity bath at the Congress so that the Justice Department cannot make the case they may want to make against him. I really don't want to think that it's about Flynn to get the president. This is about Flynn and Flynn.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Affordable Care Act

The bill was dead. So the American people had spoken: they did not want to repeal the Affordable Care Act.feedback

They must take repeal off the table, and they must stop sabotaging the Affordable Care Act.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Mar 28 2017 - Russian probe

The chair of the House Intelligence [Commitee] has a serious responsibility to the Congress and to the country. Chairman Nunes's discredited behavior has tarnished that office. [House] Speaker [Paul] Ryan must insist that Chairman Nunes at least recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation immediately. That leadership is long overdue.feedback

Mar 28 2017

Overwhelmingly, the American people do not agree with Republicans that this information should be sold, and it certainly should not be sold without your permission. Our broadband providers know deeply personal information about us and our families.feedback

Chairman Nunes' discredited behavior has tarnished that office.feedback

Mar 28 2017

President Trump and congressional Republicans' contempt for clean air, clean water, and our clean energy future endangers the health of our children and the strength of our economy. The administration's spiteful assault on the clean power plan will not bring back jobs to coal country, it will only poison our air and undermine America's ability to win the good-paying jobs of the future.feedback

Mar 27 2017

We're happy to take credit! We're willing to listen. We always want to work with the president, but my message to the president is, First do no harm. That's one place we can work together and that would signal his good faith and willingness to work together. Success breeds success. I'm proud of our caucus. I'm proud of the coordination we had with the outside. I'm proud we could convey to the grassroots, we don't consider yourself the drumbeat they echo, we consider ourselves the echo of their drum beat.feedback

Now that they were saying this is something we want to take away from you, the leverage completely changed.feedback

Mar 27 2017

They (Republicans) are in a lose-lose situation, but people have to know what it means to them. Inside maneuvering is essential, but it doesn't get the job done unless you have outside mobilization.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Affordable Care Act

This is pretty exciting for us, yesterday our anniversary, today a victory for the Affordable Care Act more importantly, for the American people. Tomorrow is the fifty first anniversary of Rev Martin Luther King Jnr saying in a speech…that of all of the forms of inequality, inequality in healthcare is probably the most inhumane.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Obamacare

Today is a great day for our country, what happened on the floor is a victory for the American people. Let's just for a moment breathe a sigh of relief for the American people.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Affordable Care Act

As bad as Trumpcare was, Republicans have been up to all night trying to make it worse. They're scrambling to find a bill that they can pass on the floor. I don't know if you want to call this on Trump's part a 'rookie's error'. But you don't find a day and say we're going to pass a bill. you build your consensus in your caucus. And when you're ready, you set the date to bring it to the floor.feedback

Mar 23 2017

You may be a great negotiator. Rookie's error for bringing this up on a day when clearly you're not ready.feedback

Mar 23 2017

Today we are gathered to say how proud we are of what was accomplished and contrast it with what is being proposed. Less care for more money. Pay more, get less. Premiums and out-of-pocket costs will go up. Coverage will be reduced.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Republican Party

We are honored to be joined by an unsurpassed champion for working families in our country. He will be here soon.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Twitter

We can work with them to do that, but what they have put forth is a terrible bill, 24 million people kicked off of health insurance, which the speaker calls an act of mercy, an act of mercy.feedback

Mar 19 2017

We take an oath to protect and defend our country, but our strength is measured in more ways than just taking money for the health, education and well-being of the American people, which is a source of our strength.feedback

Mar 18 2017

Some of them are trying to pin a rose on this report and make it sound like it's a good thing and the others of them are trying to discredit the CBO, but it's completely wrong, completely wrong. ... Numbers are quite elegant things, you know. The CBO will always give you the worst-case scenario.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Clean energy

President Trump is not making anyone more secure with a budget that hollows out our economy and endangers working families. Throwing billions at defense while ransacking America's investments in jobs, education, clean energy and lifesaving medical research will leave our nation weakened.feedback

Mar 16 2017

President Trump has shown that he does not value the future of our children and working families.feedback

Of course you can have savings if you cut off millions of people from access to health care. Explain that to your constituents.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Trumpcare

Sadly, the people who will lose care if the Republican plan were to prevail, which I doubt it will, are people who voted for Donald Trump, many of them. And you know where the benefits are going to go for all that $600 billion? Largely blue states. You know where some of the benefits will be lost? Largely in red areas.feedback

Mar 14 2017

They are implementing the biggest transfer of wealth in our history. In terms of insurance coverage, it's immoral. In terms of giving money to the rich at the expense of working families, it is indecent and wrong.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I hope they would pull the bill. It's really the only decent thing to do. How can they look their constituents in the eye when they say to them '24 million of you will no longer have coverage.feedback

Mar 14 2017

This is a remarkable figure. It speaks so eloquently to the cruelty of the bill that the speaker calls 'an act of mercy'. I don't know if he thinks it's an act of mercy to all the people who will lose coverage, to people who lose jobs, to the hospitals that they have to close down, especially in rural areas.feedback

Mar 14 2017

This isn't about politics, it's about values.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I hope they would pull the bill. It's really the only decent thing to do.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I find the charm offensive offensive. Theoretically do I think that a director of the FBI who knows for a fact that something is mythology but misleading to the American people, and he should set the record straight? Yes, I do think he should say that publicly. Couldn't possibly be true.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - Twitter

We were meeting with the president of Russia. He brought an entourage in with him. He was the one who was doing the talking. The question is, have you met with him? No, I haven't met with him. I met with the president of Russia. Who else is in his entourage, who know? Presidents, heads of state come in, they bring their party. They barely even introduce them. So, this is completely, completely different.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - Wiretapping

Mar 09 2017

What we have seen is the Republicans' long-feared and job-killing health bill that means less coverage and more cost to American people. I don't think the president really knows what he's talking about.feedback

If I rule the world, one thing we would do to make the future better, would be the education of girls. Not just here in America, across the world. Because one woman succeed, world succeed. Thank you all very much for coming.feedback

Mar 08 2017

If Republicans have their way, working families, older Americans, and people with disabilities will face huge new health costs. We promised the American people we would drain the swamp and end business as usual in Washington. This bill does not do that. We don't know how many people would use this new tax credit, we don't know how much it will cost, and we don't know if this bill will make health care more affordable for Americans. This is exactly the type of backroom dealing and rushed process that we criticized Democrats for, and it is not what we promised the American people.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Nothing is more wholesome than the increased participation and leadership of America's women: in our economy, in our society, in our democracy.feedback

Mar 07 2017

If Republicans have their way, working families, older Americans, and people with disabilities will face huge new health costs. Families across America are going to be pushed off their health coverage just so Republicans can hand a massive tax break to the wealthy.feedback

Mar 07 2017

Republicans even enable insurers to once again charge more or deny coverage to millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions, abandoning those families who lapse in coverage for any reason at all.feedback

Mar 07 2017

He doesn't even have the faintest idea of what he's talking about.feedback

Mar 07 2017

The American people and members have the right to know the full impact of this legislation before any vote in committee or by the full House. We're not talking about something that is manageable.feedback

Mar 07 2017

That coverage of people with pre-existing conditions can't be done easily and without ensuring healthy people also buy into insurance pools.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - American politics

This Republican bill will do massive damage to millions of families across the nation. Republicans have decided that affordable health care should be the privilege of the wealthy, not the right of every family in America.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Republicans have decided that affordable health care should be the privilege of the wealthy, not the right of every family in America.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Immigration

The Trump Administration's repackaging has done nothing to change the immoral, unconstitutional and dangerous goals of their Muslim and refugee ban. This is the same ban, with the same purpose, driven by the same dangerous discrimination that weakens our ability to fight terror.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I think the press were accomplices in the undermining of our election by the Russians by not pointing out this stuff [the emails] is worthless. Because it comes from an undermining of our election, or at least reminding the public where this – these emails, the leaking of these emails came from.feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

I wasn't at the dinner. I'm just finding out about this, but the fact is I'm still in a sort of a state of 'What is going on here?feedback

Mar 05 2017

It's called a wrap-up smear. You make up something. Then you have the press write about it. And then you say, everybody is writing about this charge. It's a tool of an authoritarian.feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

I wasn't at the dinner. I'm just finding out about this. You all are criticizing Cedric for something he said in the course of the evening, and he maybe should be criticized for that; I just don't know the particulars. But do I, every day, marvel at the fact that somebody who said the gross and crude things that President Trump said, he wouldn't even be allowed in a frat house, and he's in the White House. I think everybody was making crude comments. And I just – I just don't know. I wasn't at that dinner.feedback

Mar 05 2017

The Deflector-in-Chief is at it again. An investigation by an independent commission is the only answer.feedback

Mar 03 2017

They are splitting hair here. The recusal tells us that there is something wrong. If these meetings were so innocuous, why did he deny he had them.feedback

Mar 03 2017

The recusal is an admission that something is wrong.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Republicans are hiding their draft A.C.A. repeal bill in a basement room.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Watergate

The other part of it is the possibility of perjury, which is punishable by law for anybody else. Certainly we should have that be standard for the highest-ranking law enforcement person in our country.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Watergate

So this recusal is an admission that something went on but it's not sufficient. There are two things. One is the recusal as a surrogate of then candidate Trump's campaign and having communication with the Russian government knowing they were hacking our system. That's what the recusal is about, however narrow it is.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Trump administration

Attorney General Sessions' narrow recusal and his sorry attempt to explain away his perjury are totally inadequate.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Affordable Care Act

They're hiding their bill in the basement. The Republicans are too terrified of their constituents to make their plan to destroy the Affordable Care Act.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate.feedback

Mar 02 2017

After lying under oath to Congress about his own communications with the Russians, the Attorney General must resign. Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign. There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal and financial connections to the Russians.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Oil

When we believe the time is right we will put forth our positive agenda, but not while people are still enamored by what could be viewed as a snake-oil salesman by some and a messenger of hope by others.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Wall Street

The president's speech was utterly disconnected from the cruel reality of his conduct.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Wall Street

Trump "speaks like a populist, but he is selling working people down the river to Wall Street.feedback

Feb 28 2017

Our House Democratic caucus will be very dignified tonight.feedback

Feb 28 2017 - Deportation

The president's Muslim and refugee ban dishonors our values, violates our constitution and undermines our nation's fight against terror. He has launched a cruel deportation dragnet that will tear families apart, and has hauled law-abiding immigrants out of church shelters, courtrooms and schools.feedback

Feb 27 2017 - Russian probe

The statement by Chairman Nunes today really raises questions about stonewalling in my view.feedback

Feb 27 2017

The attorney general must recuse himself.feedback

Feb 24 2017 - American politics

The Republican bill raises families' costs, weakens coverage and pushes millions of Americans off of health coverage of any kind.feedback

Feb 24 2017

The rule of law depends on the FBI's complete independence, free from political pressure from the targets of its investigations.feedback

Feb 21 2017

If they need Democratic votes, because some of their people will vote for nothing, as you well know, then we'll have to talk. But I fear that if they don't need Democratic votes, the product would be something very horrible for the American people.feedback

Feb 17 2017

They are stonewalling this. The speaker is saying it's up to the Intelligence Committee – the chairman of the Intelligence Committee is saying don't look at me, I'm not doing any of this. the American people deserve better.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

Do you know what a scapegoat is? That means in a community when people want to absolve themselves of guilt, they get a goat and they heap all of the ills onto the goat and they run the goat out of town. So, the inference to be drawn from his statement is that other people have blame that should be shared in all of this.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

I have a tweet, I'm going to make, I'm telling my staff right now – It's not scapegoat, its stonewall, and that's exactly what the Republicans in Congress are doing.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

The American people deserve to know the full extent of Russia's financial, personal and political grip on President Trump and what that means for our national security.feedback

Feb 12 2017 - Grammy awards 2017

Did you see those photos of President Obama enjoying flight surfing? I think President Obama is the only person who is happy Obama isn't president.feedback

Feb 10 2017

For the sake of our values and the security of America, Democrats will continue to press for President Trump's dangerous and unconstitutional ban to be withdrawn.feedback

Feb 09 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

I think it's inappropriate, but he's a totally inappropriate president, so it's totally in keeping with who he is. What I think is more inappropriate, though, is for him to refer to a judge who made a ruling that he didn't agree with as a 'so-called judge.' Now we're talking about the separation of power, not the thin skin of an incompetent president.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I want to know what the Russians have on Donald Trump. I think we have to have an investigation by the F.B.I. into his financial, personal and political connections to Russia.feedback

Feb 03 2017 - Sanctions

Less than two weeks after walking into the White House, President Trump lifts sanctions on the Russian Security Service. Vladimir Putin's thugs meddle with an American election, and President Trump gives them a thank you present.feedback

Feb 01 2017 - Supreme Court

After the relentless contempt for women that candidate Trump displayed throughout his campaign, it is no surprise that President Trump intends to place someone hostile to women's rights on the Supreme Court. In the Hobby Lobby case, Judge Neil Gorsuch revealed his eagerness to single out women's health for discrimination and enable employers to meddle in their workers' most intimate health decisions.feedback

Jan 31 2017

What the president has done is not in the interest of security. It is reckless. It is reckless and rash. To protect our Constitution and our people, we must be strong and smart.feedback

Jan 19 2017

We've done it before, we know how to do it.feedback

Jan 14 2017

Let us remember that many have tried to silence @repjohnlewis over the years. All have failed.feedback

Jan 14 2017

There is a great deal of evidence to say that this is a high - an issue of high interest to the American people. The strength, the integrity of our own democracy. And that for that reason, the FBI should let us know whether they're making - doing that investigation or not. They're usually inscrutable, as you saw in the public testimony in the Senate.feedback

Jan 14 2017

The American people are owed the truth.feedback

Jan 14 2017

Instead of honoring his committee's responsibility to hold the administration accountable, Chairman Chaffetz has appointed himself President-elect Trump's chief strongman and enforcer.feedback

Jan 13 2017

For six years, they have had a chance to propose an alternative. We've seen nothing, but what we have seen is their cut and run. They want to cut benefits and run.feedback

Jan 11 2017

"I always wondered what the Russians have on Donald Trump,"feedback

Jan 06 2017

I think people don't want the day to pass without registering concerns. In some cases, members are concerned about voter suppression, in some cases they are concerned about Russian influence on our election. There are a number of concerns. But it's not going to have an impact at the end of the day.feedback

Jan 06 2017

That's why people have some level of dismay today on the vote ... about the Electoral College. How much is known about the foreign disruption of our election?feedback

Jan 06 2017

I will be there and I will support those who object. It's not going to have an impact at the end of the day. People don't want the day to pass without registering concern.feedback

Jan 02 2017

We're going to fight as hard as ever to protect the ACA (Affordable Care Act), said Representative Steny Hoyer, the House of Representatives' second-ranking Democrat.feedback

Dec 17 2016

We cannot have an OMB director who sees inflicting pain on working families as leverage for his radical agenda.feedback

Dec 13 2016

Whose interest is served by that?feedback

Dec 13 2016

While Speaker Ryan sharpens his knives for Medicare, Chairman Johnson's bill is an alarming sign that Republicans are greedily eying devastating cuts to Americans' Social Security benefits as well.feedback

Dec 09 2016

American families need a Labor Department that stands up for workers' wages, retirement security and safety, not one focused on reducing their pay. Andy Puzder has a long record of fighting against the wages of working families.feedback

Dec 07 2016 - EPA

The head of the EPA cannot be a stenographer for the lobbyists of polluters and Big Oil.feedback

Dec 07 2016

We hope that General Kelly is willing to stand up for facts, families and the Constitution. America will not be made great by dragging parents away from their children, by squandering billions of dollars on a wall that does little to secure the border, or by rejecting freedom of religion and echoing the darkest chapters of persecution.feedback

Dec 06 2016

Brushing aside the law that enshrines civilian control of the military – without discussion, in a massive must-pass funding bill – would set a terrible precedent.feedback

Dec 05 2016

There is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America.feedback

Dec 05 2016

Dr Ben Carson is a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential as Housing and Urban Development.feedback

Nov 30 2016

We know how to win elections. We've done it in the past, we will do it again.feedback

Nov 30 2016

They weren't defections, I had two-thirds of the vote.feedback

Nov 30 2016

I have a special spring in my step today because this opportunity is a special one, to lead the House Democrats, bring everyone together as we go forward.feedback

Nov 29 2016

Congress carefully designed the CFPB to elevate the interests of consumers above those of a well-heeled industry and provided for a single director removable for cause to ensure accountability and effectiveness. Under the Constitution, Congress has considerable latitude to shape the structure of independent agencies.feedback

Nov 26 2016

After decades under Fidel's doctrine of oppression and antagonism, there is hope that a new path for Cuba is opening.feedback

Nov 17 2016

To be a strong voice for hard-working families and to uphold the values we cherish as Americans, House Democrats must be unified, strategic and unwavering. These qualities took us to victory in 2006 and I believe they will do so again. We must start now!feedback

Nov 15 2016

There must be no sugar-coating the reality that a white nationalist has been named chief strategist for the Trump administration.feedback

Nov 14 2016 - Homosexuality

After winning the presidency but losing the popular vote, President-elect Trump must try to bring Americans together - not continue to fan the flames of division and bigotry.feedback

Nov 09 2016

We can work together to quickly pass a robust infrastructure jobs bill.feedback

Nov 08 2016

I would say that when the director of the FBI, Mr. Comey, released that letter two Fridays ago, he became the leading Republican political operative in the country.feedback

Nov 08 2016

But we can see very clearly that, and I think most people would've agreed, the success, the opportunity to win the House was predicated on a big victory for Mrs. Clinton. When her numbers narrowed, so did that prospect.feedback

Nov 07 2016

The FBI's swift and thorough review should finally close the door on this Republican sideshow.feedback

Oct 26 2016

The heroes who served our country in uniform deserve every bonus and benefit they received in good faith. We all must work together to swiftly address this situation and monitor any additional issues that come up in California and other states.feedback

Oct 25 2016

These brave Californians were willing to give everything to serve our country, and they earned every penny and benefit given to them.feedback

Oct 16 2016

I think it will be a single-digit difference. They'll be ahead by some. We'll be ahead by some, but it is definitely within reach.feedback

Sep 29 2016

You make your own wave, and that's what we're doing.feedback

Sep 23 2016

I've worked with these families for a very long time, and I think they should have their day in court.feedback

Sep 08 2016 - Zika

By Zika, I mean for a year. I don't mean for three months. Zika should be emergency spending. It should not be off-set (requiring cuts in other government programs), because it is an emergency.feedback

Jun 23 2016

Republicans turned off the microphones. We raised our voices.feedback

Jun 23 2016

They turned off the cameras. We went to Periscope. They tried to shut down the discussion, and what resulted was a discussion heard 'round the world.feedback

Jun 23 2016 - Democratic Party

Without you and without the technology of Periscope [the sit-in] would just be a debate in the Halls of Congress unrecorded because they turned off the microphones. But we raised our voices. They turned off the cameras and we went to Periscope.feedback

Jun 23 2016

Moments of silence aren't a substitute for the actions needed on gun violence.feedback

Jun 23 2016

Just because they cut and run in the dark of night, just because they have left doesn't mean we are taking no for an answer.feedback

Jun 22 2016

We truly believe that if there was a vote, we would win the vote.feedback

Jun 14 2016 - Wall Street

The latest plank of House Republicans' Wrong Way agenda is nothing more than a wish list for polluters, unscrupulous financial advisers and Wall Street. It will do nothing to create jobs in our country.feedback

Jun 06 2016

In this campaign, we have seen her vision, her knowledge, her ability, indeed her stamina, to get the job done for the American people.feedback

May 19 2016

May 19 2016

We have a bipartisan agreement [on the bill]….that does contain a restructuring that can work.feedback

The new SFMOMA is a manifestation of our city's deep respect for creativity.feedback

Feb 26 2016

People are always saying that members of Congress from opposite parties should spend more time after work like we used to do. It would be fun to spend more time with Ted Cruz. Don't you think? ... Somewhere where he feels right at home. A Justin Bieber concert, a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game, a maple syrup tasting.feedback

Feb 04 2016

Katrina was a natural disaster. How it was handled was a man-made disaster.feedback

Aug 02 2011 - Social security

Another reason to support this bill – even though there are plenty of reasons not to – is that it stops cuts in social security, Medicare and Medicaid. This is the most important assignment given to the Democratic leadership going to the table, to make sure there are no cuts in benefits, in Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security – that was achieved.feedback

Jul 30 2011

This bill is going nowhere. It is a total waste of time. And every day we spend on this waste of time is another day we are not talking about the highest priority of the American people which is job creation.feedback

Apr 24 2009

I have always been for a truth commission because I think this is very important. The question that was there was should there be immunity or not. I think it should be decided on a case by case basis.feedback

Dec 09 2008

It may take more than 15 billion dollars to get to March 31 but come March 31 it is our hope there will be a viable automotive industry in our country with transparency and accountability to the tax payer.feedback

Dec 03 2008 - Ford

There's certain standards that we want to see. We want to see a commitment to the future. We want to see a restructuring of their approach, that they have a new business model, a new business plan. There has to be compensation reform.feedback

Sep 29 2008 - Wall Street

Working in a bi-partisan way we sent a message to Wall Street. The party is over, the era of golden parachutes for high-flying Wall Street operators is over. No longer will the US taxpayer bail out the recklessness of Wall Street. And that's the news that this legislation brings.feedback

Sep 28 2008

We've made great progress, we have to commit it to paper so that we can formally agree, but I want to congratulate all the negotiators for the great work that they have done.feedback

Aug 26 2008

Barack Obama is right and John McCain wrong.feedback

Aug 24 2008

Anybody that Barack would choose would be the one that I support. So I think there's great excitement surrounding the Biden announcement. People are rallying around him. They know his values, they know his effectiveness, they know his patriotism.feedback

Jan 30 2008

I myself, as Speaker of the House, would like to call upon the Senate to take up our legislation and to pass it quickly. It is essential to the relief of some of the hardship that America's families are feeling. Many Americans in the middle class are living paycheck to paycheck.feedback

Jul 28 2007

I think that America is not as safe as it could be and this legilsation will take us forward to a great extent to make America safer.feedback

Feb 17 2007

The president also is absolutely determined to keep this country safe and to do what is best for Americans. That is his job.feedback

Jan 10 2007

If the president chooses to escalate the war in his budget request, we want to see a distinction between what is there and to support the troops who are there now. If the president wants to add to this mission, he is going to have to justify it.feedback
