The House GOP's priorities?
1. Waste taxpayer dollars.
2. Ignore job creation.
Share this if you think America deserves better.

For 50 years, the Civil Rights Act has stood as one of the great legislative achievements in our history: a pillar of fairness, justice and equality, and a monument to countless acts of courage that brought it into being.

This law was built by the daily heroism, dignity, and defiance of millions of Americans crying out for justice – daring to dream of a day beyond the segregation and the discrimination that cleaved our nation.

As we observe this anniversary, we must renew our commitment to reclaim the cornerstone of our democracy and pass a renewed, revised, and strengthened Voting Rights Act. Together, we will continue to advance the cause of civil rights in America, and carry forward the legacy of leadership that has made so much of our nation’s progress possible.

With the #HobbyLobby decision, the Supreme Court took an outrageous step against the rights of America’s women, setting a dangerous precedent that could permit for-profit corporations to pick and choose which laws to obey. This deeply misguided and destructive decision is a serious blow to Americans’ ability to make their own health decisions

Allowing employers and CEOs to limit the health care available to employees is a gross violation of their workers’ religious rights. It’s just not her boss’s business. No employer should have the right to limit the health choices of its employees, male or female. #NotMyBossBusiness

It’s been one year since the Senate passed immigration reform. How many excuses do House Republicans have left? #TimeIsNow

A year ago today, the Supreme Court struck a blow to the Voting Rights Act, landmark legislation that serves as the sentinel of every American’s right to vote. We cannot be silent, and we will not tolerate discrimination in our democracy. It’s time for Congress to renew the Voting Rights Act. #VRA4today

Headed to the White House Summit on Working Families to discuss how we can unleash the power of America’s hardworking women and families. Join me at 3:00 pm ET on Facebook, I’ll be sitting down to answer your questions live on Facebook! Look forward to hearing from you. 

As someone who grew up in Baltimore, the Washington football team has always held a special place in my heart.  The team name is another matter.  For so many Native Americans, this name has long stood as a deep offense – an affront to the dignity of their heritage, and an insult to the proud identity they hope to pass on to their children and their grandchildren.

Today’s actions by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office are in line with longstanding rules on the treatment of disparaging or offensive names.  While we respect the right to free speech, slurs have no right to trademark protections.

The team that represents our nation’s capital should be a source of pride to all Americans.  It’s long past time for the Washington football team to choose a new name.

Immigrants help drive America's success, even in the World Cup! Look at what the #USMNT would look like without them: http://goo.gl/mJTYfy #TimeIsNow
