Remembering Glen Nelson May 19, 2016
Erik Paulsen, R-MN
"Glen was a medical pioneer whose work has transformed the lives of many thousands and thousands of people. From performing surgeries to creating medical devices to leading several healthcare companies, Glen did it all. Health care was his career, and that is because he recognized the power of medicine and innovation and how it could be used to make a difference in the lives of his neighbors."
Zika Response Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Additionally, House Republicans have continued their attack on women’s access to health care in this bill by incorporating restrictions on abortion coverage. It is shameful that anti-choice Members have used the urgency of the Zika virus to limit access to a woman’s constitutionally affirmed right to choose."
