California, Covered
The Affordable Care Act is delivering on the promise of quality, affordable insurance for millions of Americans across the country – and California continues to lead the way for the nation.

Our country took a historic step forward to protect LGBT Americans as President Barack Obama signed an executive order that bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in federal contracts. With this executive order, we reaffirm the great promise of our nation: E pluribus unum - ‘Out of many, we are one.’

This week, as House Republicans gathered to discuss their lawsuit against the President, I joined with House Democrats on the Capitol steps to announce a bold new economic agenda: the Middle Class Jumpstart.
Jul 11, 2014 Pelosi Update

Once again, House Republicans are trying to divert attention away from their spectacular dysfunction and obstruction. Rather than working to address any of the urgent issues facing our nation, they have decided to waste taxpayer dollars on another hypocritical, partisan and preposterous lawsuit against the President.

Jul 3, 2014 Pelosi Update

This 4th of July, let us all remember the first and lasting promise of America – that everyone is created equal, that liberty and justice are a right for each and every person who calls this land home. Generations of Americans have stood up, have fought, have marched, have even died so that this promise is not empty for all but the most fortunate few.

Jun 27, 2014 Pelosi Update
#TimeIsNow Today marks one full year – 365 days – since the Senate passed bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform by an overwhelming majority of 68 to 32. One year since Democrats and Republicans came together on legislation to secure our border, protect our workers, unite our families and create an earned pathway to citizenship. One year of the House Majority’s refusal to act.

Leave No Veteran Behind 
Our nation owes a solemn commitment to those who have served and sacrificed in our name: just as the military leaves no one behind on the battlefield, we must leave no veteran behind when they come home.

Game of Loans
Republicans in the House and the Senate once again showed their contempt for the millions of American burdened by crushing student loan debt with their votes this week. By blocking action on this growing and urgent crisis, Republicans have once again stood with millionaires over young Americans.

Jun 6, 2014 Pelosi Update
The Eyes of the World Today, we honor the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France. On June 6, 1944, more than 150,000 troops headed across the English Channel to seize a fragile beachhead from which the Allies could drive Hitler’s armies back into Germany.

Still Strong, Still Committed, Still City College
City College is an indispensable part of San Francisco – one of our most important ladders of opportunity. The education CCSF provides has enabled thousands of San Franciscans young and old to invest in themselves and build a better future for themselves and their families.

The Engine of Our Economy
As we celebrate National Small Business Week, we must recommit ourselves to reigniting the American dream by rebuilding the pillars of America that have made our economy strong: small businesses, entrepreneurs, and an all-inclusive and thriving middle class. 

May 9, 2014 Pelosi Update
This Mother’s Day, let us honor the fabulous women in our lives by promoting policies that help women achieve the economic success they so rightfully deserve and our country needs. Because, while cards are nice, paid family and medical leave strengthens families.
May 2, 2014 Pelosi Update
Nearly 16 months into the 113th Congress, House Republicans have next to nothing to show for their time in the majority. They have failed to address comprehensive immigration reform, neglected to pass a single bill to create jobs, and refused to increase the minimum wage or extend emergency unemployment insurance - leaving over 2.6 million Americans out in the cold - with thousands joining their ranks each day.
Apr 25, 2014 Pelosi Update
During the District work week, I was honored to attend several events that demonstrate the values and diversity of our City. One such event was the foot-washing ceremony with immigrant families at the St. John Evangelist Episcopal Church on Holy Thursday.
Apr 16, 2014 Pelosi Update
This holy week, as millions celebrate Passover and Easter with friends, family, and loved ones, we can reflect as a nation on the power we draw from our neighbors and our fellow Americans. We have witnessed evil, and we have seen Americans stand united in the face of adversity.
Apr 11, 2014 Pelosi Update
On this week’s Equal Pay Day we honored the ingenuity and hard work of every American woman, and recognized how much more women must do to ensure they earn what they deserve. Every year, women have to work more than 3 extra months in order to take home the same amount a man earned last year. However, once again, Senate Republicans this week voted to reject the core American value of equality.
