100 Days Fighting For The People

100 Days
100 days into the 116th Congress, House Democrats have made progress on our For The People Agenda to raise wages, lower health care costs, and clean up corruption in Washington.
April 12th marks the 100th day of the House Democratic Majority, and Democrats have made significant progress on our For The People agenda.
 
In the months leading up to the 116th Congress, Democrats promised to restore our democracy and return to a government that is for the people. To that end, Democrats passed H.R. 1, the For The People Act, comprehensive government reform legislation that puts power back into the hands of the American people. This legislation seeks to end the influence of dark money in politics, promotes redistricting reform, and broadens access to the ballot box with automatic voter registration and expanded early voting.
 
Democrats have also made action on the economy and wages a top priority in the first 100 days.  Democrats passed the Paycheck Fairness Act, which will help close the wage gap and ensure equal pay for equal work, and are advancing legislation to increase the minimum wage and to promote retirement security. House Democrats are also working to address health care and prescription drug costs. During the first week of the House Democratic majority, Democrats voted to combat the Trump Administration’s constant assault on the Affordable Care Act, and Committees are holding hearings on ways to bring down health care costs and prescription drug costs.
 
In the coming months, Democrats will continue to advance legislation to lower health care and prescription drug costs; raise wages and expand economic opportunity; address climate change; protect Dreamers and individuals with TPS and DED status; restore voting rights; advance the Equality Act; and tackle other priorities of the American people. As we move ahead, the House Democratic Caucus is united in working together to ensure all families can make it in America.
