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.
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.
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.
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.
Without Further Delay
As the Senate moves forward with a vote to extend unemployment insurance, it is time for the House to act on behalf of the millions of Americans reeling from the loss of their emergency unemployment insurance.
Time to Give America a Raise
The American people want and deserve an economy where a hard day’s work earns a decent day’s pay, and everyone has the opportunity to build a brighter future for themselves and their families. Raising the minimum wage is a critical part of delivering on an economy that works for everyone.
