June 1, 2017
OMB Director Mulvaney's comments challenging the integrity and expertise of analysts at the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office are irresponsible and unacceptable.

Each time I think the President cannot jeopardize American security any further or take his reckless ineptitude to new heights, I am quickly proven wrong. 
May 4, 2017
I’ve read the bill, but also very importantly, I’ve read the CBO report -- that is the independent congressional advisor on fiscal matters -- and they say premiums are going up 25 to 29% for the average policyholder.
May 4, 2017
Mr. Speaker, Republicans now control all of our government. Whatever happens to our health care system will be their responsibility.
May 3, 2017
Republicans now control all the levers of our government.  They will be held responsible for whatever happens to our health care system, including the actions that have already destabilized our health insurance markets since January. 
May 2, 2017
I am appalled that President Trump tweeted this morning that he wants the government to shut down. Funding our government is not a game, where one side wins and the other side loses.
May 1, 2017
I strongly urge President Trump to withdraw Mark Green as his nominee for Army Secretary. The civilian leaders the President selects to oversee our military set the tone for the men and women of our Armed Forces and how they are expected to behave.
April 27, 2017
If Republicans announce their intention to bring their harmful TrumpCare bill to the House Floor tomorrow or Saturday, I will oppose a one-week Continuing Resolution and will advise House Democrats to oppose it as well. 
April 26, 2017
Now that their party controls the levers of government, Republicans will be held responsible for any changes to our health care system that take place on their watch.
April 26, 2017
Once again, House Republicans are floating text of a new TrumpCare bill that is no better than any of the previous versions before. 
April 13, 2017
President Trump was right when he declared that 'the longer I'm behind this desk and you have Obamacare, the more I would own it.'  
April 11, 2017
Sean Spicer's comments today are indicative of the extraordinary lack of knowledge, perspective, and sensitivity that the Trump Administration has brought to Washington. 
April 6, 2017
I continue to be deeply disturbed by the baseless and irresponsible accusations leveled against former National Security Advisor Susan Rice by President Trump. 
April 6, 2017
It is entirely appropriate that Chairman Nunes should step aside from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation, something he should have done days ago.  
March 30, 2017
Americans are sick and tired of the blatant partisanship that too often puts party ahead of commonsense governing. 
March 29, 2017
[President Trump] looked at the American people in the eye, when he talked to the Joint Session of Congress, and said I want to assure you that I’m going to cover everybody with insurance.
March 29, 2017
Today, House Judiciary Committee Republicans blocked resolutions of inquiry from coming to the Floor that would have shed light on connections between President Trump, his advisors, and Russia's efforts to undermine our election. 
March 28, 2017
Rep. Bill Pascrell's resolution of inquiry seeks to provide a means for the American people to find much-sought and much-deserved answers about Donald Trump's many potential conflicts of interest. 
March 24, 2017
Clearly, Chairman Nunes and the Trump White House are scared of what the public might learn, and by canceling a public hearing on Russian involvement in the election they are denying the American people the full scope of information that might come forward.
March 23, 2017
Well, the bill keeps getting worse and worse and, of course, the deficit reduction the Republicans were claiming has now been halved by the changes they made. 
March 23, 2017
If Republican leaders were hoping that the Congressional Budget Office’s cost and impact estimate for their amended health care bill would make any Member more likely to support it, I suspect they are now sorely disappointed.
March 23, 2017
Clearly, they don't have the votes now because the President is working it very hard and the Republican leadership is working very hard, and they are making changes that we are not sure what the changes are.
