Today, it was my privilege to stand with brave young activists for gun violence prevention, because Generation Lockdown’s leadership has been crucial to our fight.
We must renew the assault weapons ban to protect America’s children.
Since Democrats enacted the Affordable Care Act 13 years ago, we have built on its strong foundation. In the last Congress, we passed legislation saving families an average of $2,400 a year on their premiums, while slashing the cost of prescription drugs for our seniors.
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.
The Affordable Care Act has stood the test of time, welcoming millions of families onto affordable insurance plans and driving down out-of-pocket costs. And when Republicans tried to repeal the ACA, Democrats, advocates and activists defeated their monstrous plan.
As we celebrate this joyous day of 13 years of the Affordable Care Act, we know that more needs to be done: we must reduce the cost of insulin and prescription drugs for all Americans, we must expand Medicaid in all states, and we must expand access to mental health care.
The ACA has stood for the last 13 years as a pillar of health and financial security for America’s working families. Now, America is healthier, because in America, health care is more affordable and accessible than ever before.
Join @jimwallis and me @GeorgetownFaith for a discussion of faith and values in politics at the first conversation in their series on “Higher Calling”. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
On this day in 2010, @BarackObama signed into law the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act: a shining achievement that presidents had strived toward for more than a century.
Today, and every day, Democrats are working to ensure that health care is a right – not a privilege.
Today marks the beginning of the Holy Month of Ramadan, as millions of Muslim families around the world renew their faith. May this month of self-reflection bring you peace and hope. Ramadan Mubarak!
Join @ProtectOurCare and me for a roundtable to hear powerful, personal stories from advocates about the impacts of the Affordable Care Act – as we prepare to celebrate thirteen years of this life-saving, life-changing law. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
Happy #Nowruz to all Iranian Americans and millions around the world celebrating today! This holiday season serves as a source of hope, peace and justice in the new year.
He cannot hide from his violations of the law, disrespect for our elections and incitements to violence. Rightfully, our legal system will decide how to hold him accountable.
Whatever the Grand Jury decides, its consideration makes clear: no one is above the law, not even a former President of the United States. The former president’s announcement this morning is reckless: doing so to keep himself in the news & to foment unrest among his supporters.
Last night, I proudly received an Honorary Degree from @UlsterUni: an esteemed academic institution shaping the peacemakers of tomorrow.
As we mark the anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, peace must be our common cause — on the island of Ireland and around the world.
Happy St. Patricks Day! Today, we celebrate the contributions the Irish have made to America and our strong bonds with the people of Ireland.
Join me for an @UlsterUni ceremony to express my appreciation for receiving an honorary degree and to speak about the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. Thank you to Ulster University for this special honor. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
Two years ago, eight Americans were murdered in a racist mass shooting targeting Atlanta’s AAPI community. Today, and every day, let us renew our pledge to carry on our fight to #StopAsianHate and racist violence in all forms.
This week, we celebrate 10 years of Pope Francis' papacy and reflect on all he has done for our Catholic community and the world. From his leadership on climate to lifting up those in poverty and facing persecution, @Pontifex is a channel for God's peace. ncronline.org/opinion/guest-…
Today marks how far into 2023 a woman must work to earn as much as a man earned in 2022. This #EqualPayDay is a reminder that there's more to be done to make real the promise of equal pay for equal work. We must continue to fight – because when women succeed, America succeeds.
Her courage and persistence leave behind a legacy of progress and have inspired countless women in public service to follow in her footsteps. May it be a comfort to the entire Schroeder family that so many mourn with and pray for them at this sad time. pelosi.house.gov/news/press-rel…
The passing of former Congresswoman Pat Schroeder is a profound loss for our Nation. In the House, Congresswoman Schroeder was an effective legislative force, whose bold vision and firm values helped deliver progress for America’s women, servicemembers and working families.
Thank you to @sxsw, @TheAtlantic and @evanasmith for hosting an important conversation today about the future of Democracy — here at home and around the world.

Democrats forged this progress without one Republican vote. Under President Biden’s leadership, Democrats are fighting to build on this foundation as we continue to put #PeopleOverPolitics. Read my full statement here: pelosi.house.gov/news/press-rel…
We have seen the strongest 2 years of job growth with 12.4 million jobs created. Health care is now more affordable & accessible than ever before. With support for state & local government we honored health care workers, first responders, teachers, transportation workers & more.
On this day two years ago, Democrats ignited a beacon of hope for America’s families, as @POTUS Biden signed into law our American Rescue Plan. Two years later, families are feeling the impact of this life-saving, life-changing law.
Outside mobilization has made all progress possible for America’s working families.
It was my privilege to accept kind words and to thank so many advocates for women and families last night for our work together #ForThePeople.
It’s shameful that, six decades after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, women still face pay disparities.
Today, it was my privilege to join @DemWomenCaucus to demand equal pay for equal work, as we fight to make our Paycheck Fairness Act the law of the land.
64 years ago, the Tibetan people rose up & risked their lives to protect their freedom: religious, cultural & language. As we recognize their courage & resilience, let us continue to speak up against human rights abuses by the CCP & human rights abuses everywhere in the world.
It brings fairness to our tax code with the Child Tax Credit, while protecting Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid – in danger of being cut by Republicans. It invests in America’s care economy: including child care, paid family & medical leave & housing. pelosi.house.gov/news/press-rel…
Thank you @POTUS for your important statement of our national values in the budget presentation today. The Biden budget will grow our economy with good-paying jobs, reduce our national debt and meet the needs of America’s working families.
