Madam Speaker: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the U.S. Speaker of the House

(June 5–11)

“We owe the children of our country so much more than excuses to why we don’t have legislation. … You can’t vote for these bills because it’s a problem for you politically? Understand this: your political survival is nothing compared to the survival of our children. We must protect them.”

“Spearheaded by Congresswoman Grace Meng, this legislation will help share a richer, more complete telling of our nation’s history — celebrating the cultural vibrancy of our AAPI communities and recognizing their essential role in the American story.”
“Our children are our future. President Kennedy said our children are our greatest resource and our best hope for the future. They are our precious treasure. We must not have them be afraid to go to school, or go to church or go to the movies or anything else.”
“Amid a surge of hate-fueled attacks, the House has a moral duty to condemn this abhorrent ideology for what it is: a call to racist violence. House Democrats remain committed to stamping out hate wherever and whenever it appears, and we will continue fighting to build a brighter, safer future for all of our children.”
“I’m very pleased that we’ll be bringing up the Ocean Shipping Reform Act, which is a bill to address the supply chain shortages that we have. When supply is short, costs are up. That important legislation has already passed the Senate, so we will be passing it in the House.”
“Our Congressional delegation congratulated President Biden, Vice President Harris and Secretary Blinken on a productive and unifying Summit, recognizing the importance of strong bonds in the Western Hemisphere to America’s security and success.”
