Last year, House Dems passed the most significant gun violence prevention legislation in 30 years. We won’t stop working to build safer communities and end gun violence.

The @HouseGOP just passed a bill that bans books and demonizes LGBTQ+ students. Culture wars over kids. Politics over parents. That's the MAGA Majority.
Hakeem Jeffries @RepJeffriesa day ago
Extreme MAGA Republicans just passed legislation to ban books and bully children.
Congressman Greg Landsman @RepGregLandsman2 days ago
To these state and DC politicians who want to ban books and bully kids, leave us and our children alone.

@HouseDemocrats are creating better paying jobs. We’ve invested in America by fixing our roads and bridges, delivering clean water and high-speed internet to more communities, and bringing supply chains back home.
House Democrats introduced common sense proposals to strengthen our schools. House Republicans are rejecting them. They continue to put Politics Over Parents. twitter.com/EdWorkforceDem…

Republicans want to bring partisanship and culture wars into our classrooms. House Democrats stand with parents, who want better schools and world-class educations for our kids.

Today we are considering the partisan so-called ‘Parents Bill of Rights,’ which should be called the ‘Politics Over Parents Act.’
As a parent who was very involved in public education for 15 years, I support parental involvement in education - but this bill misses the mark.
🧵 As we mark #ACA13, health care advocates shared how Democrats have delivered quality, affordable health care for Americans from all walks of life and why Republican repeal attempts would devastate the health and financial security of millions of people. Read more:

13 years ago today, America took a giant leap forward as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was enshrined into law.
It was my honor to meet with @ProtectOurCare and heroic advocates whose lives have been touched by this landmark law, as they shared their stories.

13 years ago, the #AffordableCareAct was passed, providing a lifeline to millions of Americans. But getting to that moment wasn’t easy.
Ahead of the House vote, I walked with @SpeakerPelosi and others to the Capitol, including my good friend, the late, great John Lewis. (1/4)

The #ACA has changed lives & the numbers don't lie. Over the past decade the uninsured rate in Dallas County has fallen from 29% to 22%
We've protected pre-existing conditions & ensured women can no longer be charged more than men. Happy 13th birthday to the Affordable Care Act!

🎂🥳🎈 Happy 1️⃣3️⃣th birthday to the Affordable Care Act!
Thanks, President @BarackObama and @HouseDemocrats!
Despite dozens of GOP efforts to repeal this life-saving law, I'll always work to build on the #ACA and ensure Americans have access to quality, affordable health care.
Rep. Gerry Connolly @GerryConnolly2 days ago
13 years ago, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law. It's brought health care to hundreds of thousands of Virginians and it protects millions more with pre-existing conditions. I am beyond proud to have voted for it, and will always fight to protect it.

The American Rescue Plan & Inflation Reduction Act expanded access & affordability of health care in America.
Now on the 13th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, more than 35 million Americans have gained coverage & families are saving $2400/year on premiums. #ProtectOurCare

While Republicans are wasting time with political stunts, House Democrats have been hard at work delivering for our communities. Putting #PeopleOverPolitics isn't just what we talk about, it's what we are about.
Kevin Mullin @RepKevinMullin2 days ago
Going on 13 years now, the Affordable Care Act has helped more than 35 million Americans access quality, affordable health care! Without the #ACA, seniors & working families would see health care costs skyrocket. Vital programs like the ACA aren't up for debate.

For 13 years, the Affordable Care Act has transformed health care in America – safeguarding the dignity of the sick, the security of our families, and the health of us all.
Nobody has benefited more from that victory than women.
Rep. Rob Menendez @RepMenendez2 days ago
Before @BarackObama signed the ACA into law 13 years ago today, many New Jerseyans had no access to affordable health insurance. While the @HouseGOP tried to repeal the ACA 70 times, @HouseDemocrats protected this life-changing law. We will never stop protecting it.
Representative Jill Tokuda @RepJillTokuda2 days ago
On the 13th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, I joined @RepPeteAguilar, @RepTedLieu, and @RepGlennIvey to celebrate the lifesaving impacts of the #ACA. More than 35 million Americans gained coverage and families are saving $2,400/year. #PeopleoverPolitics

Accessible and affordable health care is so important for working families. I will keep fighting to ensure all Americans have high quality care. #PeopleOverPolitics
Rep. Suzan DelBene @RepDelBene2 days ago
Over the past 13 years, the Affordable Care Act has allowed over 35M Americans to get the health coverage they deserve. We must continue building on this progress & make coverage more affordable across the U.S. I will always stand in the way of any effort to move us backward.
Rep. Richard Neal @RepRichardNeal2 days ago
13 years later, the numbers speak for themselves. In Massachusetts, every child has health insurance, as do almost 98% of adults. More Americans are insured today than ever before, and the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions live without fear of prejudice. twitter.com/WaysMeansCmte/…
🥳🥳🥳The Affordable Care Act is 13!
"Since then, the #ACA has provided needed, affordable health care access for Americans from all walks of life, and the results continue to break records."

It's the 13th anniversary of the #ACA's passage. The #ACA provided millions of Americans with health insurance coverage & protected patients with pre-existing conditions. Still, there's so much more work to do to make health care truly affordable & accessible for everyone.

🧵Thirteen years ago today, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, expanding health care coverage to millions of people and families who now can't be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition.

THREAD: The #AffordableCareAct was the first vote I cast as a member of Congress. I was overwhelmed with honor and joy as I voted "Aye" and provided one of the deciding votes to pass the legislation.
