repstenyhoyer Today, I joined @RepDavidCicilline and the @LGBTEqCaucus to call on the House Judiciary Committee to hold a hearing on the #EqualityAct. It’s inexcusable that #LGBT Americans continue to be denied basic rights. I urge House Republicans to bring the Equality Act to the House Floor, where I am confident it would pass.

repstenyhoyer Earlier this month, I introduced the bipartisan Information Technology Modernization Act, an innovative way to upgrade and modernize government IT systems. Since then, leaders in the private sector have praised the legislation for its transparent and cost-saving approach to replacing antiquated IT infrastructure.

repstenyhoyer Today, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in US v. Texas, and I’m confident the Court will uphold President Obama executive actions on immigration. The DAPA and DACA programs keep families from being torn apart, and I will continue to work with my Democratic colleagues to defend the President’s executive actions and reform our broken immigration system. #FightForFamilies 2w

repstenyhoyer With their failure to bring a budget resolution to the Floor and pass it by today’s statutory deadline, House Republicans have once again demonstrated the degree to which the sharp divisions within their conference are impeding Congress’s ability to work for the American people. It is shameful that so many House Republicans are insisting that their leaders renege on last year’s budget agreement and go back on their word to Democrats and to the American people by refusing to accept those topline funding levels in their budget resolution. Rather than continuing to appease their most extreme faction, I urge Republicans to stick to their word and follow the bipartisan agreement in the budget and appropriations process for this coming year. 3w

repstenyhoyer This afternoon, I joined @repbarbaralee chair of the Democratic Task Whip Force on Poverty, Income Inequality, and Opportunity and my Democratic colleagues at a Steering & Policy Committee hearing on poverty. While Speaker Ryan has said he wants to make fighting poverty a focus of his work, Republican policies would make conditions harder for those struggling to get by. Congress must come together in support of programs that help lift Americans out of poverty. Read my remarks from the hearing on my website (link in bio). 3w

repstenyhoyer The Information Technology Modernization Act is an innovative new way to upgrade and modernize government technology while strengthening cybersecurity. The legislation will make government work better for the people it serves and renew the American people’s faith that government can be a source of solutions.

repstenyhoyer This morning I spoke on the steps of the Capitol with my Democratic colleagues to mark the sixth anniversary of the enactment of the Affordable Care Act. The ACA is working and Democrats are going to keep defending it against Republican efforts to repeal or undermine its cost-savings and patient protections without any alternative. #20MillionStrong #ACAWorks 1mon

repstenyhoyer Last week, President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Despite being well-qualified and highly regarded within the legal community, Senate Republicans have refused to hold a confirmation hearing or an up-or-down vote on Judge Garland. Republican leaders in both the House and Senate have made clear that their obstruction is all about politics. 1mon

repstenyhoyer I join in welcoming Pope Francis (@franciscus) to @instagram. Last September, we were honored to welcome His Holiness to the US Capitol, where he spoke to a Joint Session of Congress before addressing thousands of people on the Mall. I thank the Pope for his commitment to spreading peace throughout the world. 2mon

repstenyhoyer Judge Merrick Garland is an outstanding choice to serve on the Supreme Court and his nomination demands swift consideration. I urge Senate Republicans to meet with him and give him the full consideration he is due so that he can be confirmed without delay. 2mon

repstenyhoyer Speaker Ryan recently launched a Republican task force on poverty, but the House Republican budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2017 would set back the cause of eliminating poverty and promoting opportunity.

repstenyhoyer The February jobs report, which shows a gain of 230,000 private sector jobs, reflects the continued resilience of America’s workers and businesses. Our jobs numbers make it clear that we have the ingredients for economic resurgence and wider opportunity, if only this Republican-led Congress would work with Democrats to make that happen instead of standing in the way and telling businesses and workers they’re on their own. http://1.usa.gov/1SnOTNL 2mon

repstenyhoyer Throughout the month of March, I join in paying tribute to the enormous contributions made to our history by women. I’m proud to serve in Congress with women who are fighting for justice, equality, and opportunity every day. Together, we are working to close the pay gap once and for all, combat domestic violence, promote opportunities for women and girls in science and engineering, and enact paid family and medical leave. #womenshistorymonth 2mon

repstenyhoyer Today, I joined Rep. Jim McGovern and House Democrats to call on House Republicans to invest in anti-poverty programs following Speaker Ryan’s announcement of a Republican task force on poverty. I appreciate Speaker Ryan’s words on this issue, but those in poverty need actions, not words.
I joined with Rep. Barbara Lee to form the Democratic Whip Task Force on Poverty, Income Inequality, and Opportunity back in 2013, and we hope that Speaker Ryan and House Republicans will work with us to take real, meaningful action to address poverty.

repstenyhoyer Seven years ago, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was signed into law by President Obama. The enactment of that law was a significant milestone in the march toward full equality by allowing women recourse if they had been paid less than their male counterparts. However, women still earn, on average, only 79 cents to every dollar a man earns. Congress has a responsibility to address this problem with the serious effort it deserves, and House Democrats remain committed to continuing the work of eliminating the pay gap by passing the Paycheck Fairness Act, which I am proud to co-sponsor, in order to prevent pay disparity from the outset. http://1.usa.gov/1PJUWMK 3mon

repstenyhoyer I enjoyed learning about the newest models of American-made cars at the @washautoshow. As the automobile industry in America thrives, companies like @ford and @chevrolet are employing more Americans in manufacturing plants nationwide. I remain committed to working to ensure that more businesses like these and their workers can make it in America. 3mon
