Many New Yorkers have expressed grave concerns about Donald Trump's selection of Stephen Bannon as his Chief Strategist. I share those concerns. Thank you all for raising your voices and speaking out. I stand ready to oppose the forces of hatred, bigotry and intolerance at every turn.
Today, I'm introducing an amendment to protect women’s access to quality affordable healthcare under the Affordable Care Act. Thanks to the ACA, women receive crucial preventive care without co-pays and can no longer be charged more than men or denied coverage for being pregnant. Repealing the Affordable Care Act would disproportionately impact women and I will lead the fight to protect women's access to critical healthcare under the ACA. Link
I was deeply heartbroken by the results last night. Hillary Clinton has been a friend, mentor and inspiration to me my entire adult life. We are fortunate to live in the greatest Democracy on earth that is built upon important checks and balances. I stand ready to work cooperatively with President-Elect Trump on shared goals and values and will be equally vigilant in opposing him where our values diverge. I am committed to serving others, making a difference, and helping to heal our great country.
