Press Releases

June 20, 2018 Press Release
“The Trump-GOP rescissions bill was a disastrous attempt to play election year politics by eliminating funding for children’s health insurance and slashing investments that create jobs and strengthen communities. The Senate was right to reject this attack on American children and families."
June 20, 2018 Press Release
It is obvious that President Trump is using distraught children and anguished parents as bargaining chips to fund his border wall boondoggle. Unfortunately, it appears that the Majority is acquiescing to this strategy by dramatically increasing funding for Homeland Security.
June 7, 2018 Press Release

Mr. Speaker, it is outrageous that we are beginning this appropriations season by debating President Trump’s rescissions bill, which fails the American people, hurts children and families, and injects needless partisanship into Congress’ important appropriations work.

June 6, 2018 Press Release
Tomorrow, the House is expected to consider H.R. 3, the Trump-GOP rescissions bill. Here are five important things to know.
May 23, 2018 Press Release
“We now understand why House Republicans have tried to keep their fiscal year 2019 priorities secret: they have chosen to shortchange middle class families and vulnerable people in order to fund President Donald Trump’s border wall and deportation force."
May 23, 2018 Press Release
For the last month, Democrats on this Committee have been demanding to see the full slate of subcommittee allocations. We need these figures to understand how each appropriations bill fits into the larger picture, and whether our work as a whole will meet the needs of the American people. Now, we understand why the Majority wanted to keep secret for as long as possible the priorities it has chosen in the Fiscal Year 2019 spending bills. They shortchange middle class families and vulnerable people, which is why Democrats stand united in opposition.
May 16, 2018 Press Release

Mr. Chairman, I want to begin by thanking you for your efforts to accommodate the requests of Democratic members.  You continue to be accessible and receptive to many of our priorities and it continues to be a pleasure to work with you. 

May 11, 2018 Press Release

Today, Congresswoman Nita Lowey, House Appropriations Committee Ranking Member, and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan in response to Republicans’ proposed rescissions package that eliminates billions of dollars from the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

May 9, 2018 Press Release
“The legislative text of the Trump-Republican rescissions bill confirms our worst fears. To pay for the GOP tax bill, it cuts the Children’s Health Insurance Program without reinvesting those funds in vital health care and human service programs like Head Start or biomedical research."
May 8, 2018 Press Release
“The Trump-Mulvaney rescissions package is a raw deal for the American people. Cutting children’s health insurance without reinvesting in other vital health care programs will cause serious pain for American families."
