This week, Congress was back in Washington. We voted on several pieces of legislation, and marked our 100 days. I talk about some of our accomplishments in that time and give some other updates on COVID and other topics.
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.

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.
