Running out of Time
Once again, the total dysfunction of the Republican Congress has led the American people down a dangerous calendar of chaos. With only 6 legislative days to act to fully protect the full faith and credit of the United States by November 3, they squandered this week with empty ideological grandstanding.
On Wednesday, I toured the Robert B. Pitts public housing apartments in the Western Addition, the site of a HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) rehabilitation project, with HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Mayor Ed Lee and Board of Supervisors President London Breed.
Calendar of Chaos
The total dysfunction of the Republican Congress is pushing hard-working families down a dangerous path. After a year of relentless obstruction and failed leadership, critical deadlines have piled up — threatening our economy and communities across the country.
Iran Nuclear Agreement
Today, the House voted on an historic, transformational nuclear agreement with Iran that strengthens the security of America, and makes the world a safer place.
Strengthening Global Security
This past week, my colleagues and I traveled to Italy and Ukraine on a Congressional Delegation focused on security – national security, economic security, energy security, and food security.
This week, House Republicans once again chose to Fast Track the trade agreement and passed Trade Promotion Authority in a vote of 218-208.
As we seek to secure our nation’s place as a leader in today’s global economy, we must not leave the American worker or American values behind. For these and other reasons, I voted today to slow down the trade Fast Track, to get a better deal for the American people – bigger paychecks, better infrastructure – and to help all who seek to fulfill the American Dream.
