Today, the United States House of Representatives sadly mourns the sudden and tragic passing of Congresswoman Jackie Walorski.

57 years ago, the U.S. fundamentally transformed the way we care for the most vulnerable members of our society. In the decades since President Johnson signed Medicare & Medicaid into law, they have stood as pillars of health, security & justice for generations of Americans. Yet even as we celebrate one of our nation’s greatest legislative achievements, Republicans are plotting to end Medicare and Medicaid entirely – tearing away coverage from tens of millions of Americans.

As Speaker of the House, it was my privilege to host a statue unveiling in Statuary Hall to celebrate an American who personifies the daring and determined spirit of our nation: Amelia Earhart. Image Amelia Earhart’s name is synonymous with courage. She was the first woman, and only the second person, to fly solo across the Atlantic. In doing so, she set records for speed and time elapsed between two continents.

Ten years ago, an act of senseless mass violence stole the lives of 12 Americans on what should have been a joyful night out.
 
This tragedy shocked Aurora and the nation, inflicting renewed fear for the safety of our own loved ones – at work, in church and even at the movies. In the decade since this heart-wrenching attack, America’s drumbeat of gun violence has continued to claim innocent lives – devastating more communities and tearing apart more families.

Driven by the courage of survivors and advocates, Democrats have fought to end the bloodshed.

Today, @HouseDemocrats advanced landmark legislation to defend reproductive health freedoms from right-wing attacks across the country. 

Ahead of our vote, the Democratic women of the House gathered on the steps of the Capitol to share a clear message: we are not going back. It is outrageous that women must again fight for our most basic rights against an extremist Supreme Court and Republican Party.

The Women's Health Protection Act would protect those rights — enshrining Roe v. Wade into federal law.

After a historic House vote last year, @HouseDemocrats’ pro-choice majority will pass this landmark legislation for a second time.

Yesterday, the Congress paid tribute to Chief Warrant Officer 4 Hershel ‘Woody’ Williams: an heroic American, a courageous defender of liberty and the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient of World War II. As the forces of tyranny threatened liberty around the world, Woody proudly enlisted in the Marines – eager to serve his country. At just 5’6,” he was never the tallest Marine. At 135 pounds, he was never the biggest. Yet he was a force of nature on the battlefield.
