Leader Pelosi. Good morning, everyone. Welcome back. Perhaps you’ve been here the whole time.
Leader Pelosi. Thank you very much [Congresswoman] Barbara Lee for bringing us together in this special order to honor a very special person, Congressman, Mr. Mayor, Ron Dellums. You worked with him, so you saw close up his commitment to values to make the future better for everyone in our country. And you also participated in his collaboration. When an issue arose or was anticipated, he engaged the entire community in the discussion, in the collaboration of what is best for the community, not deigning to them but listening, he listened and we all listened.
Tonight, President Trump is heading to Billings, Montana to hold another one of his campaign rallies.
He will likely attack the press and perhaps those that work at the White House too, go on and on about “draining the swamp” even though all evidence points to the contrary, and defend his SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
What won’t he mention? The ongoing GOP court battle to attack health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. (Let’s not forget that just last year in Montana, former GOP House Candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed a reporter when asked a question about Trumpcare’s assault on people with pre-existing conditions.)

Today, Republicans’ cruel assault on the health care of Americans with pre-existing conditions continued – this time playing out in a federal courthouse in Texas.
After voting to take away consumer protections for people with pre-existing conditions in their brutal Trumpcare bill, Republicans are now waging a court battle against the ACA putting in dire peril the health care of 130 million Americans who currently have health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, cancer, mental illness or substance abuse – and all those who will be diagnosed with a health condition in the future.
“One year ago, in a shameful act of cowardice and cruelty, President Trump terminated DACA, forcing hundreds of thousands of brave young men and women and their families to live under a cloud of fear and uncertainty. The transformative DACA initiative honored our country’s proud heritage as a nation of newcomers, allowing patriotic Dreamers to come out of the shadows and fully contribute to our communities and our country, making America more American.
