“One year ago today, I took the oath of office and was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives.

We’re taking action to lower the cost of prescription drugs and make healthcare more affordable for working families. We’re fighting to protect our climate, strengthen our economy, close the gender pay gap, and ensure everyone has access to a quality education.
