Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi held her weekly press conference today in the Capitol Visitor Center. Below are the Leader’s remarks:
“Today, another American community is reeling from the horror of gun violence, perpetrated against innocent school children. Our hearts ache for the people of Parkland, Florida and the entire Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School community. Our deepest gratitude goes out to the heroic first responders who provided aid and comfort to those in need. As the families and friends of the victims mourn and others wait for word from their loved ones, Americans everywhere share in their shock and grief.
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Members of the Congressional Task Force on Election Security for a press conference releasing its final report including ten specific recommendations on what the federal government and states can and should be doing to secure our nation’s elections. Below are the Leader’s remarks:
“For more than a quarter of a century, the Americans with Disabilities Act has advanced our nation’s mission to build a fair, equal and just future for all. This milestone law has transformed the lives of the 55 million Americans who live with a disability, and shattered barriers to full participation in society. Congress should be building on that progress, not undermining it.
Yesterday, President Trump – aka ‘the king of debt’ – rolled out a cruel budget proposal that would sharply raise the federal deficit by more than $7 trillion, showing the compounding cruelty of the deficit-exploding GOP tax scam.
Now, President Trump’s budget proposal is being slammed from all sides – including from Republicans enraged that their President has pulled back the curtain on the GOP’s deficit hypocrisy:
TODAY, the White House unveiled their infrastructure plan, claiming ‘$1.5 trillion’ to invest in ‘our failing infrastructure and develop innovative projects.’
But here’s the reality: President Trump is actually only proposing $200 billion in federal funding, while his budget even slashes critical infrastructure funding to the Department of Transportation by nearly 20 percent and the Army Corps of Engineers by 22 percent.
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after President Trump released his budget blueprint, which calls for staggering cuts to domestic health, education and economic initiatives for working and middle class families:
