Last quote by Patty Murray

I would hope it would have gotten done a month ago where it would have been easier to be enacted. I would hope it would have gotten done a month ago before the president created more chaos. Every day that goes by has a challenge to it, and the sooner the better.feedback

Patty Murray quotes

Sep 07 2017

After millions of students, parents and teachers stood up and rejected Secretary DeVos' extreme privatization agenda, I'm pleased that Republicans and Democrats in Congress ignored her requests to gut programs that help students from preschool to college and beyond, and instead continued to invest in the overwhelming majority of students who attend public schools.feedback

Sep 07 2017

Because no matter what any of us think about government in general – and no matter what we may think about programs or investments in particular – surely we should be able to agree that we should all do everything we can to make them work as well as possible. Not just by wishing for it, and not just letting blind ideology or partisanship guide the way or undermine policies that help people – but by using evidence … facts … science – making sure our policies are aligned with what we know works – and what we know doesn't.feedback

Don't be fooled. Senate Republican leaders are going to spend this weekend doing everything they can to cut backroom deals and get the 50 votes they need to jam Trumpcare through the Senate–and that's why it's so important that Democrats and patients and families across the country keep fighting back and making clear any senator who votes for this mean, heartless bill will own the consequences.feedback
