Health care is a fundamental human right that this country has yet to realize. As long as I live, I will fight with every ounce of strength, every breath in my body, to make this right a reality.

This bill is a ray of hope. It is a significant win for the American people because it demonstrates that even in the most difficult times, we can come together as a nation, as a people & as a Congress to accomplish important things for the American people.

This is the 65th Anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Brown v Board, but America’s public schools are more segregated today than at any time since the 1960s. How did we get here? What do we do now?

Combating climate change is not a Democratic or Republican issue. It is the question of preserving this little piece of real estate that we call Earth. Congress cannot stand on the sidelines. The time to act is now.

How many more lives do we need to lose before we decide to do all we can to bring an end to wanton gun violence in this country? My heart goes out to the victims, their families and the members of the Chabad of Poway.

If we are to build a society at peace with itself, we cannot sow seeds of hatred and division. Hate is too heavy a burden to bear, love is the only way.

I am overwhelmed by sadness at the murder of 49 souls in Christchurch, New Zealand. There is no room in our society for hate, especially on the basis of religion. I pray for our Muslim brothers and sisters and hope that the world community will come to see love as the better way.

I first met Louise Slaughter thirty-two years ago during our freshman orientation. From the first day, she stood out. Louise was a kind, unbelievable beautiful person. She was a born leader, who was thoughtful, mindful, and she didn’t take any stuff.
