January 22, 2018 Press Release
“Minnesotans get absolutely nothing from this 17-day stopgap spending bill that papers over the abject failure of President Trump and the Republican Congress to agree on a budget and pass appropriations bills. The Republican strategy of lurching from one continuing resolution to the next will continue to cause serious damage to our national security and erode the vital services that families, businesses, and communities depend upon."
January 20, 2018 Press Release
“President Donald Trump and the Republicans have total control of Washington, but have consistently refused to work with Democrats to fund the federal government or address a long list of urgent national priorities. As we reach the one-year anniversary of the Trump presidency, tonight's government shutdown demonstrates the real consequences of the chaos emanating from an incompetent White House and of Congressional Republicans’ complete failure to govern."
January 18, 2018 Press Release
“The federal government’s fiscal year started October 1st of last year. But instead of fulfilling their responsibility to fund our government, President Trump and Republicans spent months working to pass their tax scam. Now, because they didn’t do their jobs, Republicans are asking us to vote to kick the can down the road again. That is no way to run a government."
January 18, 2018 Press Release
“Contrary to claims made by some Republicans, the continuing resolution that the U.S. House will consider today does not do nearly enough to address Minnesota’s urgent health care needs."
January 17, 2018 Press Release
"The Republican Party has total control of Washington. Yet instead of fulfilling their responsibility to fund the government, President Trump and the Republicans wasted the last four months on their tax scam. Because they haven’t done their jobs, Republicans now tell us that we need to kick the can down the road again. Minnesotans and Americans deserve better."
December 19, 2017 Press Release
“In my 17 years in the U.S. House, I have seen few pieces of legislation as devastating as this Republican tax scam. In the year ahead, I look forward to joining millions of Minnesotans and Americans holding the Republicans who voted for this bill accountable.”
November 16, 2017 Press Release
“The Trump-GOP tax scam singles out Minnesotans for higher taxes by ending the state and local tax deduction, punishes people with high medical bills by eliminating the medical expense deduction, and even makes it harder for students and families to pay for college. This bill will explode the federal debt, guaranteeing that Republicans will move forward with cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and eventually Social Security."
November 3, 2017 Statements For the Record
"While I support reauthorizing funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and various other important public health programs, I oppose this bill because it cuts funding for public health, puts families at risk of losing their health insurance, and weakens Medicare."
October 19, 2017 Press Release
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) delivered remarks at the 50th anniversary celebration for the Open Cities Health Center and urged Republicans to restore funding for community health centers.
October 13, 2017 Press Release
“With Republicans’ destructive health care legislation stalled in Congress, President Trump has apparently decided on a back door sabotage that will dramatically increase costs for families in Minnesota and across America."
