I want to express my deepest condolences to the family and colleagues of Police Officer Miosotis Familia, a 12-year veteran of the New York City Police Department, who tragically passed away earlier today after being fatally shot in a heinous and senseless attack. This is another sobering reminder of the daily dangers faced by our men and women in blue while on duty. Let's keep Officer Familia, her three beloved children, her loved ones and all members of our City's Police Department in our thoughts and prayers on this sad day. Today, without a doubt, our City has lost one of its Finest.

"I'm deeply saddened and disturbed by today's fatal shooting at Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center. This senseless tragedy that has left our borough and our City in mourning, did not only take the life of a female doctor but left six others injured, some of them in critical condition. I want to express my condolences to the family and friends of the deceased and wish a swift physical and emotional recovery to those affected by this traumatic event. However, in the midst of this horrific tragedy, we are reminded of the many acts of heroism displayed today. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of our first responders including the NYPD, especially police officers from the 44th and 46th Precinct, the FDNY and the EMT, for the courage and professionalism displayed under the most strenuous of circumstances. Further, I want to express my profound appreciation to the doctors, nurses and personnel at Bronx Lebanon for their work in putting their patients out of harm's way. It is indeed a very sad day for our City."

The WOTUS Clean Water Rule was another example of bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. trying to run Kansas farms and ranches. Our state is a leader in water innovation, and Kansans have come together through community-led water preservation efforts spurred by our 50-year Water Vision. Our farmers and ranchers know best how to steward their water. We appreciate that President Trump and the EPA will now let our farmers farm and ranchers ranch.

This legislative session made history, but for all the wrong reasons. Passing the largest tax hike in state history, this legislature passed the biggest budget in state history—and they’ve already spent every dime. The legislature—despite borrowing and delaying payments—chose to spend over $200 million in new spending on top of increased funding for schools. This budget pays for a legislative wish list on the backs of working Kansans. This session marks a drastic departure from fiscal restraint. I trust that future legislatures will return to a pro-growth orientation that will once again set Kansas on the path toward becoming the best state in America to raise a family and grow a business.

Jeffrey is one of millions that could lose marketplace coverage under Trumpcare or because of Trump’s actions to destabilize the marketplaces. #FacesofTheACA

This morning, Senate Republicans released the working draft of their "effort" to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. It comes as no surprise that the "Better Care Reconciliation Act" is as devastating and cruel as the recently passed American Healthcare Act. This so-called healthcare bill shows Senate Republicans' true colors and the lengths they will go to strip away health coverage from the sickest and the poorest in our country, while giving the wealthiest Americans a massive tax break.

Sonia D'Andrea I agree. Mr. Morales ....we need People's Care Act.
Joseph Morales I fore see people moving into states (like NY, CA. etc) that can take care of their people despite cuts by uncaring Trump. I feel sorry for those states that don't have a big enough tax base to do that. Ironically many of those states helped Trump ...

For seven years we have heard Republicans gloat about their vision of a healthcare bill. Now that the Senate and House version are public, we come to see that the healthcare plan is merely a scheme to give the wealthy a huge tax break and never really about the health or well-being of our constituents. It charges elderly patients five times as much as younger patients. It cuts essential health coverage for women. It forces states and emergency rooms to absorb the disastrous impact of dismantling Medicaid, which provides coverage for nearly 69 million low-income individuals, seniors and those with disabilities across all congressional districts. Instead of dismantling the progress we have made, it’s time to recognize that healthcare is an inalienable right, not a commodity that few can afford. Read my full statement here: goo.gl/fPD2uP

Jim Deakin Jr Nothing stops the DNC from starting a $0 premium, $0 copay $0 deductible HMO for the people. Why does it take the force of government to make health insurance available?
Kate Sullivan Help keep that healthcare bill from passing. Say no and talk to our senators to say no to it
Michael Franz Thank you, Mr. Grijalva. You represent my interests very well, and I agree with you about this issue.
Doug Biggers Obamacare was the best we could get at the time and was obstructed by the same forces that are at work today. If Republicans really wanted to address health care reform, a bipartisan effort could be successful and come to grips with fundamental issues ...
Steve Opga This coming from Raul, lol. The guy the supported Obamacare and all of a sudden you're a heath care expert? You're a fool. You just want to save Obama's legacy. Without Obamacare, there is no legacy. That's pisses you off so it ...
