April 27, 2012 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong opposition to H.R. 4628, which places partisan politics ahead of America's students and the health of Minnesota communities.

March 28, 2012 Speech

This Republican budget is a political document. It is the House Republican’s platform for November.  This GOP platform puts our economy and millions of jobs at risk. They gut protections for seniors and families in need. And, they abandon local communities at a time when Washington should be a partner for opportunity and economic growth.
