Assault on Democracy

Pelosi Update

Constitutional Duty
Elections determine the future our children will inherit. Given the alarming magnitude, seriousness and scope of Russia’s efforts to undermine our elections, we must have an independent, bipartisan investigation to protect the integrity of our democracy.

Republicans should work with House Democrats to pass the Protecting Our Democracy Act, H.R. 6447, introduced by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Intelligence Committee Member Eric Swalwell. This critical legislation would establish a truly bipartisan, independent commission to investigate Russia’s efforts to undermine our elections and democratic institutions.

The American people are gravely concerned about Russia’s involvement in our elections – and this Congress has a Constitutional duty to respond to these concerns with urgency.

#CuresAct represents a vital step to modernize & strengthen our nation’s pursuit of lifesaving treatments. Today, @POTUS signed it into law.

                                                                                       My office recently assisted a constituent who had been receiving her full Social Security retirement benefits for several months even though she had informed the Social Security Administration (SSA) previously that she had cancelled her request for retirement benefits as she decided to continue working for her employer for another year. However, when she did finally retire, SSA began issuing payments that were lower than the amount she received previously. After working for a year, she expected that her payments from the SSA would be increased. After submitting her request to SSA to review her records, my constituent waited for four months without a response from SSA. Therefore, my office contacted SSA on my constituent’s behalf. After reviewing my constituent’s records, SSA agreed that her adjusted SSA retirement benefits should have been increased due to her extra year of work. My constituent is now receiving her full SSA benefits.
