An Hour Of Power February 1, 2016
Joyce Beatty, D-OH
"In the 48 years since his death, while we have made some strides in confronting injustices and ending unequal treatment, there is still work to be done. Our Nation is still plagued by the vestiges of segregation and unequal laws and policies, evident today in Flint, Michigan, and its lack of clean drinking water; in it being harder, not easier, to exercise the constitutional right to vote through voter disenfranchisement; Black men being killed in Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago, and my State of Ohio; inequities in health care, poverty, and in our failing schools."
Pro-Life January 12, 2016
John Ratcliffe, R-TX
"Now, this is an immense responsibility, one that I take very seriously, because one of the highest honors I have in representing the Fourth Congressional District of Texas is defending the most vulnerable among us, our unborn children. I am proud to have a voting record that reflects my unwavering commitment to protecting unborn life and ending taxpayer funding of abortion."

Calling For An End To The Trade Embargo With Cuba December 31, 2015
Rosa DeLauro, D-CT

Finance Committee Accomplishments December 17, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"As we all know, entering the foster care system can be particularly traumatic for a child. Over the years, we have seen ample evidence suggesting that placement in group homes significantly increases children’s risks and potential for victimization. Our bill would give States greater flexibility, with the goal of keeping children with family members and ending the overreliance on group homes."
