Today, the U.S.
In this week's update, I talk about Ida B. Wells, the American Rescue Plan, and the Equality Act. I also provide some updates on coronavirus and vaccines.
Pharmaceutical executives testified before the Oversight Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee. I asked them about the threat of not addressing the pandemic in other countries could continue to endanger Americans and our economy.
I went to the House Floor today to speak about H.R. 5, the Equality Act, to provide protections from discrimination for the LGBTQ+ community.
This week, I talk about the reparations bill, H.R. 40, the latest on the American Rescue Plan, and the situation in Texas this past week.
In this week's video, I talk about the Senate's vote to acquit Donald Trump, our work on the American Rescue Plan, and other important updates.
After complaining about what they call "irrelevant" items being added, GOP members of Energy and Commerce Committee wanted to add Hyde Amendment language to the COVID-19 relief bill. Let me be clear. We will #BeBoldEndHyde! Access to reproductive healthcare is essential and a right that should not be impeded.
Last night during the Energy and Commerce Committee markup of COVID relief legislation, Republicans wanted to throw a wrench in our nation's push to #CrushTheVirus. While CDC & experts have laid out who should get vaccinated first, the GOP wants to skip millions of immigrants who represent millions of workers on the frontlines.
During this #COVID19 pandemic, 33% of women have said they delayed or cancelled a visit to a healthcare provider or had problem accessing reproductive healthcare and contraception. But my GOP colleagues on Energy and Commerce Committee want to take away the Title X family planning funding in this bill.
