Today, I was proud to speak at the 2012 Justice for All Awards and Americans with Disabilities Act Anniversary Celebration with the American Association of People with Disabilities. I was proud to lead the effort in Congress to pass this law.

This morning, I am in Peoria, IL, the third stop of the #MakeItInAmerica #ListeningTour, with my good friend and host @RepCheri as well as @RepJimmyPanetta. We're hearing from community leaders about the education and the skills gap. I was pleased to hear from community leaders in Peoria, including from the Peoria Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Central College, small biz owners, small manufacturers, the employment training office, & the regional superintendent to discuss the challenges they see in training a skilled workforce and how we can work together to strengthen education and close the skills gap.

Good morning from Kansas City, Missouri, the second stop on my #MakeItInAmerica #ListeningTour. I’m joined by #KC entrepreneurs, innovators, & my friends @repcleaver and @repjimmypanetta. We are discussing economic successes of #KC’s entrepreneurs and small business owners, as well as challenges they face that Congress can address. How can Democrats help more families and businesses Make It In America? Follow my #ListeningTour and join the discussion using #MakeItInAmerica.

I am in Las Vegas on my first stop on the #MakeitinAmerica #ListeningTour. It was great to ride an autonomous shuttle through the city and hear from employees about infrastructure innovation in Nevada.

Despite GOP claims that their #GOPTaxScam is about helping companies reinvest & create jobs, it’s clear that’s not the case. Watch this exchange and let your voice be heard at GOPTaxBill.us.

Yesterday, I joined my friend @Rep.PeteAguilar to meet with entrepreneur #DREAMers and business leaders who support the #DREAMAct. Thank you @fwdus and @ibm for continuing to highlight how DREAMers are launching businesses, helping their companies grow and succeed, and creating jobs in their communities. We must bring the #DREAMAct to the Floor and give these inspiring young people peace of mind with a permanent, legislative solution, including a path to citizenship

I was excited to march in the Leonardtown Veterans Day Parade this morning. Before the start, I enjoyed saying hello to Cub Scouts from Pack 413 in Patuxent River.

A wide range of organizations are speaking out against the #GOPTaxScam. From the small business community, homeowners, and famers to seniors and middle-class families, these organizations agree this bill is a bad deal for Americans of all walks of life. Here’s a look at what they said.

Today, I joined Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn, the Democratic Faith Working Group, and the faith community to discuss the #Souls2Enroll open enrollment outreach effort to help Americans #GetCovered on HealthCare.Gov before December 15. When we work to expand access to quality, affordable health care it’s not only an act of policy, it is an act of faith.
This morning, I joined House Democrats to stand in solidarity with #OurFellowAmericans in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands as they rebuild in the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria. They are not alone, and we will not forget them. I continue to call on President Trump to make certain that every possible federal resource is made available. We must do all we can.

Today, I stood with my friend Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, members of the @lgbteqcaucus,and House Democrats to announce an amicus brief in support of civil rights protections for historically marginalized groups in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Our message is that America is better than exclusion; we’re better than hate; we’re better than prejudice; and we respect each and every one of our fellow citizens. #OpenToAll

This week, I led a bipartisan Congressional delegation with @repkevinmccarthy to visit #OurFellowAmericans recovering from devastating hurricanes in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Florida Keys. I wanted our fellow citizens to know they are not alone – we are with them and will stand by them as they recover. I am committed to working with my colleagues to ensure they have all of the resources necessary to rebuild stronger than before.

News reports agree: @realdonaldtrump is deliberately sabotaging the Affordable Care Act, which will raise premiums on millions of Americans and undermine health insurance markets.

Thank you @fwdus for the opportunity to meet with more of our nation’s #DREAMers and hear their stories. We need #DREAMActNow for #DREAMers like Jennifer, who came to the United States at 4 years old and was a Girl Scout and a valedictorian. And Bernard, who is currently in school to be a physician assistant and could not get a driver’s license until the #DACA program. Congress must #ProtectDREAMers who are enriching our communities and building our nation’s future. They deserve a permanent legislative solution to remain here. It is time for #DREAMActNow

Today, led by my brother @repjohnlewis and my good friend @gabbygiffords, House Democrats stood united to remind House Republicans that we were elected to lead and have courage. We must act now to #EndGunViolence, and I was proud to stand with my colleagues to demand a vote on the bipartisan King-Thompson background checks and the creation of a Select Committee to address gun violence.

To #OurFellowAmericans in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, you are not alone. Your friends in Congress are fighting for you, and we will continue to do so in the months and years to come.

Today, I held a press conference with @Hispanic.Caucus and @HouseDemocrats to announce a petition to force a vote on the DREAM Act. This bill has bipartisan support and will pass if it comes to the Floor. Democrats will explore every avenue to #ProtectDREAMers.
