ICYMI: President Trump opened the door to presidents declaring fake emergencies to fund spending they can’t persuade Congress to support. A dangerous precedent has been set that puts our country on a slippery and very dangerous slope.

Anyone who had visited WA's Methow Valley knows the headwaters are a priceless resource & worthy of protection. I'll do what I can to push the through the House and get protections, like the ones for Methow Valley, signed into law.

Republicans scheduled a show vote on *another* bill attacking women’s rights & health—which leading medical groups have said should never become law. Democrats will stand w/ women, doctors, nurses, & everyone who truly cares about women’s health & rights & make sure it doesn't.

Senator McConnell has announced a show vote on a bill that would put Republican politicians right where they don’t belong: between a woman & her care provider as she makes deeply personal health decisions. This is wrong & Democrats are going to fight back.
