This morning, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Margaret Brennan on CBS’ Face The Nation for an interview on Democrats’ agenda in the 116th Congress including reducing the cost of health care and prescription drugs, increasing workers’ paychecks, and cleaning up corruption in Washington. She also highlighted the accomplishment of record-breaking diversity in the 116th Congress with the new Democratic House Majority being more than 60 percent woman, people of color and LGBTQ.
“Each Veterans Day, Americans take time to reflect on and honor the bravery and sacrifice of our heroic men and women in uniform. For generations, our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, National Guardsmen and Reservists have stood for freedom and democracy wherever the call to serve has brought them. From the trenches of France 100 years ago to the deserts and mountains of Iraq and Afghanistan today, the sacrifice of America’s servicemembers has safeguarded our democracy and defended our most cherished values. And even in civilian life, our veterans continue to find ways to serve — as we see with the veterans among our firefighters and first responders battling the wildfires in California and helping communities evacuate.
“The hearts of every Californian and all Americans are heavy for the victims and families of all those impacted by the devastating wildfires burning throughout our state. We grieve for those we have lost and pray that all those still in danger remain safe. Americans across the country send our deepest gratitude to the brave, selfless first responders and fire fighters who are our nobility, and who are on the front lines protecting neighbors and strangers alike, fighting tirelessly to protect homes and keep our families safe.
