Finally a Bipartisan Agreement... Well Sort Of.

Today, instead of averting the sequester, the Republican-led House passed the inclusive, bipartisan Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act – so, at least something good happened. We’re glad that some House Republicans actually decided to put partisan politics on the backburner in order to get something done. Now, if only they could decide to put politics aside to avert the sequester by compromising with Democrats on a balanced solution. Wouldn’t that be nice!

Hoyer: House Should Pass the Inclusive, Bipartisan, Senate-Passed Violence Against Women Act

“I want to congratulate the Leader for her efforts in getting us to this point. Today, after two months, I think we're going to do something very positive and we're going to do it in a very bipartisan way. I think that's excellent. I think America will be advantaged. Every American – women, yes, but every American – will be advantaged.
