Washington, DC – Congresswoman Robin Kelly released this statement concerning the President’s budget request:
“This budget can be summed up in one word: awful.
It takes food out of the mouths of babies, takes heat away from seniors and takes the security of crop insurance from our farmers.
It’s awful for the families struggling to make ends meet.
Nearly every day, I pick up this paper and read about gridlock and partisanship gripping Congress. The 24-hour TV news cycle reminds us of it by the second and magazines aren’t much better.

For years, policymakers have known that the NRA’s “guns everywhere — background checks nowhere” policy means more dead Americans and a country that’s less safe.
Yet, instead of using common sense, we stand by and allow 30,000 Americans to die every year.

In the News
Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) is introducing a new bill aimed at bridging the digital divide by requiring all future government websites to be mobile friendly.
It’s time to fight because our health is on the line. For years, Congressional Republicans have been chomping at the bit to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip 30 million Americans of the everyday security of health insurance.
For six years, Republicans have repeated the same phrase in every conversation about healthcare: “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
In "Take care not to drown in the swamp, Republicans" (Editorial, Jan. 7), Crain's editorial board points out the importance of independent ethics offices to keep politicians honest.

The Trump Administration and Ryan-McConnell Congress are hell-bent on scoring political points by ending the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).
