Statement by Congresswoman Betty McCollum Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing on the EPA’s Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Request
Every American has a fundamental right to access quality, affordable health services. In 2010, I voted for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act when it passed the House, and the President signed it into law (P.L. 111- 148).
Providing common defense for the American people is one of the primary Constitutional responsibilities of Congress. In the 21st Century, America needs a flexible military that is able to confront emerging threats, such as terrorism, growing regional instability, the spread of nuclear weapons, and the emergence of cyber warfare.
