repstenyhoyer Three months ago, President Obama requested $1.9 billion in an emergency supplemental appropriation to prepare for and contain the spread of the #Zika virus. Instead of responding quickly and working with the Obama Administration, House Republicans have ignored this public health crisis for months. Today, they will begin consideration of a $622 million funding bill, providing less than a third of the funding requested by President Obama. The bill isn’t a serious effort to address the crisis because it doesn’t provide the resources necessary to tackle the immediate and ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico or prepare vulnerable cities and states in the South. 1w

repstenyhoyer Late last night, House Republicans on the Rules Committee blocked an amendment to strike an anti-LGBT provision from the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. It’s shameful that House Republicans are including a discriminatory provision in a bill that should strengthen America’s security. This anti-LGBT amendment pulls back the curtain on House Republicans’ radical agenda and their embrace of policies based in exclusion and intolerance.

repstenyhoyer Today, on International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, I joined the @LGBTEqCaucus in a video message to the LGBT community. At a time when many federal, state, and local leaders are advancing discriminatory policy proposals, we are going to keep fighting for equality and justice for all. #WeAreWithYou 1w

repstenyhoyer I was pleased to welcome Prime Minister @larsloekke and Ambassador Lars Gert Lose to the Capitol yesterday afternoon. As co-chair of the Congressional Friends of Denmark Caucus, I’m proud of the close relationship between our two nations, and I remain deeply committed to the continued project of building a strong and robust partnership between Denmark and the United States. 2w

repstenyhoyer This morning, I joined House Democratic leaders to discuss how Donald Trump’s poisonous rhetoric echoes the long-standing policy positions of House Republicans, including their anti-LGBT record. Click the link in my bio to read my remarks. 2w

repstenyhoyer For months, House Republican leadership has struggled with deep divisions and dysfunction within their Conference, preventing Congress from acting on a number of serious public health crises. In the past few months alone, Republicans have failed to take action to address Puerto Rico’s debt crisis, failed to provide funding to combat the Zika virus, and failed to make investments that address the crisis of opioid addiction. The lack of Congressional action has not gone unnoticed and editorial boards across the nation are urging Congress to take action. Click the link in my bio to learn more. 2w

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 1mon

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. 1mon

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). 1mon

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 2mon

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. 2mon

repstenyhoyer I join in welcoming Pope Francis (@franciscus) to @instagram.

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
