This week, I review a busy week of committee hearings, including the #BigTech
During today's hearing with Facebook, Google, and Twitter CEOs, I asked about their platforms' involvement with the organization of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
CEOs from Facebook, Google, and Twitter testified before a joint hearing of the Consumer Protection and the Communications Subcommittees. I co-chaired the hearing and offered these opening remarks.
I participated in the Health Subcommittee hearing on the impacts of the #AffordableCareAct
During the full committee debate on the LIFT America Act, I focused on the public health infrastructure aspects of the bill, including community health centers.
n this week's update, I give updates on vaccines and COVID's local impact. I also discuss the recent rise hate crimes against the Asian community, the future of the filibuster, the introduction of Medicare for All, and honor Carol Mosley Braun for Women's History Month.
Today we passed H.R. 1868 to protect Medicare and Medicaid from across-the-board budget cuts, making sure Medicare and Medicaid recipients aren't affected from by any reduction in services or funding.
I have been urging my colleagues to join me in asking President Biden to agree to a TRIPS Waiver in the World Trade Organization. Big Pharma is seeing COVID-19 and the vaccines as a money maker, even after the American taxpayers funded their research and development of these vaccines.
Today I spoke on the floor during debate of H.R. 6., I spoke in support of the bill, but shared the concerns of many of my constituents that it bars too many people in our community from a path to citizenship.
