Washington D.C. — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement on Congressman Michael Capuano:
“Across the country, the American people are confronted with a GOP Congress and Administration that are relentlessly ransacking the health care, financial security and futures of American families,” Leader Pelosi said. “After House Republicans chose to advance a destructive and partisan Labor, HHS and Education bill that turns its back on hard-working families, this conference will provide an opportunity to craft a strong, balanced bill that recognizes America’s strength is measured not only in military might, but in the health and well-being of America’s hard-working families. Democrats will fight for funding that honors our duty to provide our military with the tools they need for a strong and smart national defense and meets the needs of children and families. Our dynamic House Democratic Conferees will bring the strength of their values and wide-ranging expertise to the vital work of hammering out bipartisan bills on these critical issues. They will work tirelessly to support our courageous men and women in uniform, and they will remain faithful to their responsibility to help build a better future for all Americans.”
Welcome back from the August District Work Period. I hope it was beneficial to your constituents and to you personally. As we approach the end of this Congress, we must Be Ready for the prospect that we will be in the Majority in January.
Dear Democratic Colleague,
As we all prepare to communicate with our friends in labor on Labor Day, I write to share some thoughts and plans.
