Mar 4, 2011 Pelosi Update
This week, Congress passed and the President signed legislation to keep the government open for the next two weeks. While I did not support all the cuts within it, it is my hope that this short-term measure will give us the time to do the right thing: to work together to keep our government running in a way that continues our economic recovery, reduces the deficit, and does not undermine education and the future for our children.

The American people want us to be working to create jobs. Unfortunately, the Republican majority is prioritizing a package of extreme legislation that represents the most comprehensive and radical assault on women’s health in our lifetime.

Dec 20, 2010 Pelosi Update
This landmark vote closes the door on a fundamental unfairness and repeals a policy that does not contribute to our national security.
