Thank you Mr. Chairman. 

Women deserve access to affordable, quality health care.  Unfortunately before the Affordable Care Act, women didn't have this access.

Washington, DC – Yesterday, World Bank President Bob Zoellick announced that he would step down at the end of his first term in June 2012. Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) – co-chair of the Caucus for Congressional-World Bank Dialogue – praised his guidance, particularly during challenging times.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to condemn the unspeakable violence that the Government of Syria has committed—and continues to commit—against its own citizens. For the past eleven months, the Syrian people have engaged in peaceful demonstrations to demand their basic, universal human rights. These demonstrations have been met with unrelenting bloodshed and torture. Thousands of Syrian men, women, and children have been slaughtered. There can be no question: President Bashar al-Assad must step down, or be removed from power.
