Statement “Our country’s failure to allow all workers to earn paid sick days has created a crisis for working moms and families. It is truly shameful that more than 40 million workers cannot earn any paid sick days – and low-wage workers are the hardest hit. But the Workflex in the 21st Century Act is not the solution we need. In fact, it would be a huge step backward for the country, undermining state and local progress in letting workers earn paid sick days and eliminating the certainty and flexibility that real paid sick time and fair scheduling laws provide.

Statement “Last night, U.S. Senate Republicans made it clear that their loyalties lie with big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent, not with moms, women, working families, or our economy. The tax plan they passed would punish the middle class, devastate essential programs that boost our health care, nutrition and education; and undermine our economy.

Statement “The substitute paid sick days measure Governor Hogan introduced yesterday is unacceptable. It covers too few workers, phases in too slowly, and the waiver it contains constitutes a huge and unacceptable loophole that would weaken it even further. It would do nothing for too many of the 700,000 workers in Maryland who do not currently have any paid sick days they can use to care for themselves or their children when they get sick.

Statement “The rule the Agriculture Department released today is grossly irresponsible and a significant step backward for our country and for our children’s health. The updated school nutrition standards have been working. Parents support them, kids benefit greatly from them, and the vast majority of schools have been able to comply with them.

Statement “Last night, the Department of Homeland Security cruelly targeted hard-working immigrant families by once again terminating Temporary Protected Status (TPS), this time for more than 50,000 Haitians. This is a heartless move that will tear apart families, cause unnecessary turmoil in our communities, and damage our economy. This decision is callous, unprincipled and wrong.

Almost 23 million women have been victims of rape or attempted rape in the United States.   “We believe women. We believe facts.

Statement “By passing a harmful, heinous tax bill, House Republicans today threw working families under the bus in order to kowtow to big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent of people in our country. This bill will give tax breaks to those who need it least while doing real damage to our economy and working families – including the middle class, low-income communities, seniors, people with disabilities, communities of color, women, teachers, students, and people in need of health care. That’s pretty much everyone. The faulty House Republican tax reform plan must not become law.

Statement Yesterday, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the Senate tax bill would include a provision to do away with the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that all Americans have health insurance. The repeal of the individual mandate would remove the incentive for younger, healthier Americans who buy their insurance through the individual market to purchase coverage, tilting the market toward older, sicker consumers—in turn, decreasing the number of insurers who participate in the marketplace.
