Statement “As President Trump announced actions today, he invoked moms as an excuse for advancing his divisive policy that will hurt our economy, our families, and destroy communities.  We want to state clearly: The actions President Trump announced today are his agenda, not ours. And they are, quite simply, wrong.

Statement “Rep. Tom Price demonstrated again that he would be a terrible choice to serve as the nation’s next U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services at the Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor & Pensions) Committee hearing today. He supports the deplorable action by the new Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without a replacement, which puts at risk the health insurance that 30 million people, including four million children, rely on.

Statement “The hearing before the Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor & Pensions) Committee yesterday evening raised very serious concerns about the nomination of Betsy DeVos to serve as U.S. Secretary of Education. As an organization comprised of mothers and other caregivers, we recognize that providing all our children the best possible education is of the utmost importance.

Statement “Today the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin its confirmation hearing on Senator Jeff Sessions, a nominee whose record clearly indicates that he is absolutely not qualified to serve as United States Attorney General. Senator Sessions’ record on voting rights, anti-discrimination protections, policing practices, government surveillance, immigrants’ rights and more demonstrates that he is far outside the mainstream and in no way qualified to head the federal agency charged with protecting and advancing justice in this country.
