During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Muslim families around the world celebrate their faith by engaging in the sacred process of self-reflection & spiritual renewal. The special season of #Ramadan offers the promise of hope that better times are within reach.
Daunte Wright should still be alive today. Our hearts ache for his family & for the Minneapolis community currently seeking justice for George Floyd.
This epidemic of injustice cannot continue.
The George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act passed by the House must become law.

The most expensive maintenance is no maintenance. That's why we need big, bold investments in the American Jobs Plan - so we can rethink, rebuild, and modernize our crumbling infrastructure to create good paying jobs & turbocharge our global competitiveness. #BuildBackBetter
In our first 100 days @HouseDemocrats have delivered #ForThePeople.

Today, America & Italy celebrate 160 years of cherished diplomatic relations. Our alliance is essential to confronting the challenges that lie ahead. Let us mark this momentous anniversary by recommitting to the special bond between our great nations.
.@POTUS' strong budget request honors this truth: our federal budget should be a statement of our national values & must reflect America’s priorities. The House will continue to work to Build Back Better & create a more prosperous & just future #ForThePeople.
The US Congress extends condolences over the passing of Prince Philip, whose life was distinguished by an inspiring ethic of dedicated service. May it be a comfort to Her Majesty & the Royal family that so many mourn with & pray for them at this sad time.
The House's bipartisan, commonsense background checks bills, HR 8 & HR 1446, are supported by 90% of Americans, including gun owners. Working with @POTUS, survivors & families of victims and the Senate, we can advance safety, security & justice in America.
The gun violence epidemic forces families across America to endure unfathomable pain. @POTUS's actions today will save lives: stopping the spread of ‘ghost guns,’ helping ensure that dangerous people can't access firearms & leading an initiative to reduce community violence.
On #HolocaustRemembranceDay, we recommit to combating bigotry and hate in our time. The memory of the 6 million Jews and countless others murdered moves us to build a world in which no one lives in fear because of who they are or what they believe.
The #AmericanRescuePlan is getting shots in arms, money in pockets, children in schools, and people in jobs.
Join @HouseDemocrats on today’s Day of Action to spread the word that #HelpIsHere to crush the virus & get our economy back on track.
