The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Rep. Betty McCollum from Minnesota who serves St. Paul and surrounding suburbs.
Representative Betty McCollum
“No matter where you live – a big city, the suburbs, a rural community, or a tribal nation – you know that our families, students, seniors, and small business owners are facing real challenges.
“For too many people, wages are not growing fast enough to keep up with the cost of living.
“Many businesses can’t find workers with the required skills. Too often workers can’t afford the education and training they need to secure better-paying jobs.
“Drug companies are gouging us with skyrocketing prescription drug prices.
“And, across the country, our economy is being held back by outdated infrastructure and a widening digital divide.
“President Trump and Republicans have no solutions to address these problems.” […]
“House and Senate Democrats came together this week to announce A Better Deal for America’s families.
“Democrats in Congress are taking on the real challenges facing America and finding solutions that are responsible, compassionate, and effective.” […]
“This week, Members of Congress begin going home for the August recess.
“This is a chance for citizens to hold their Senators and Representatives accountable by asking tough questions: What are you doing to help working families get ahead? What are you doing to protect my family’s healthcare?
“You deserve answers. And you deserve a better deal than the one you are getting now.
“That’s exactly what Democrats are working for: better jobs, better wages, and a better future for every American.
