Pelosi Update

A Fresh Opportunity
On Tuesday, Members were sworn in to serve the 114th Congress in the House of Representatives, and I am honored to once again serve our nation in my capacity as the Democratic Leader, which would not have been possible without the strength and support of the people of San Francisco. Thank you for the continued privilege to represent our great city in Congress.

We celebrate a new year and a new Congress – with fresh opportunity for the American people. My hope is that in the inevitable exchanges and clashes of the months ahead, we will not lose sight of the truth as historic as our Republic: the ideals that unite us are stronger than the issues that divide us. 

The financial stability of a strong middle class, and those that aspire to it, is the bedrock of our economy and the backbone of our democracy. We have a moral obligation to build an economy that works for everyone, not just the privileged few – and we hope Republicans will join us to achieve better infrastructure and bigger paychecks for the working people of our country.

For America's Families
On the first day of the new Congress, House Democrats offered a legislative package to increase the paychecks of working families and put Americans back to work building the roads and bridges our nation needs – paid for by keeping our tax dollars here at home. House Republicans overwhelming voted against it – advancing, instead, even more tax giveaways for the wealthy and special interests.

House Republicans are already making their priorities clear: more special interest giveaways, forget about middle-class families. The American people deserve a Congress that works for them, not just the wealthy and well-connected. We must act to ensure that American workers enjoy the bounty of their unprecedented productivity and expand the purchasing power of families.
