Hoyer Discusses the Progress on Financial Regulatory Reform Legislation on CNBC

Final Push to Health Care Vote with Hoyer and Cantor on ABC

Since the President addressed the nation on health care, the support has gone up 18 points and "the Wall Street Journal" poll that just came out, shows the majority of those responding indicate they're for the bill. An ""economist"" poll showed the same thing a week ago. We think support is growing for this bill...

Health Care Reform in Congress on CBS

We needed to provide access to affordable health care for all Americans and all families. That is the single best selling point because if we don't do that, the system is more expensive, less efficient, our nation is less healthy, and all Americans who have insurance are paying about $1,000 extra in their policies to accomplish that objective...

Engaged in Dialogue Over Congress and Republican Filibusters on MSNBC

I believe the Senate is broken. I don't think it's Harry Reid's fault as the Democratic Leader. What I think it is, is the Republican Leadership has determined that failure and gridlock are to its political benefit. Of course, we've had more request for filibuster votes than anytime in history.

We think we'll have 218 by the time we vote on this bill later on this afternoon or early this evening.

Tobacco FDA Issue and Budget Plan Versions on Power Lunch

What we hope to accomplish is having the Food and Drug Administration, which is charged with making sure the public knows the risks and avoids the risks to the extent they can, look at this from a Federal perspective and make it clear to the public the consequences. So we think this will up the level of oversight, which we think is appropriate...

Hoyer Addressing Obama Speech on Fox News

I felt it was an excellent speech. I felt he did exactly what he needed to do. First of all, he laid out the problem that confronts us immediately and explained what we were doing to meet that crisis and what we would do to meet that crisis.

Hoyer Delivers Explanation of Economic Recovery Debate on the House Floor

We are today in my opinion to be honest with the American people. They need to know that this economic crisis will not end overnight. I think the Chairman's made that pretty clear, and they need to know the reasons why. The deep, deep, deep fiscal hole we have inherited after eight years of fiscal recklessness.
