Steny Hoyer  Rep. Steny Hoyer represents the 5th Congressional District of Maryland and is the Democratic Whip in the US House of Representatives.

As a proud Danish American, I was honored to welcome my friend, the Danish Prime Minister @larsloekke Rasmussen, to Washington with my co-chair of the Danish Caucus @tomcoleok04 #DKinUSA #DenmarkUSA

Today I spoke at a forum hosted by my colleagues @reproybalallard and @repjayapal on the impact of President Trump's immigration policies on families and children. Our country is great because we are guided by our morals, which tell us that having children wrenched from the arms of their parents is wrong. We are a country of immigrants, of refuge, and of safety, and Democrats will continue to oppose policies that are contrary to our nation's principles.

Happy #MarylandDay ! Maryland's history and influence is present throughout the Capitol building, especially in my office. #FearTheTurtle

Pleased my friend former Vice President @VP44 joined members of my Whip team today to discuss fighting #TrumpCare on the 7th Anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. #ACA7

Today, I hosted @americans4arts and House Democratic colleagues for a discussion on the importance of the arts and funding for the @neaarts #artsadvocacyday

The revisions made to the @housegop's #PayMoreForLess bill makes the legislation even worse. Click on the link in my bio to read my statement on the last minute changes that Republicans are making to the bill.

Happy #FirstDayofSpring – I’m glad that some of the cherry blossoms survived the snow last week and can be enjoyed by all who visit the Tidal Basin during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. #cherryblossomdc

I was honored to meet with Vladamir Kara-Murza, a journalist and civil society leader promoting democracy in Russia. I commend him for his courage and determination to speak out against the authoritarian regime of Putin.

Republicans are rushing their bill to repeal the #ACA through Congress without holding a single hearing, so I joined my Democratic colleagues to hold the hearing that @HouseGOP refuses to. Democrats heard from several witnesses about the economic and coverage implications of the bill and receive patient and provider perspectives. It's clear the GOP plan will kick millions of people off their coverage and force working families to #PayMoreForLess care.

TOMORROW, STARTING AT 9:30 AM: Democrats will hold the hearing that House Republicans refuse to hold on the GOP bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and make Americans #PayMoreForLess . Tune in tomorrow on Facebook Live at

I launched a website today for the American people to tell Members of Congress what they think about House Republicans’ bill to repeal the #ACA . Visit and let me know what you think about the legislation. #ResistRepeal

I stopped by @energycommerce this morning to thank my Democratic colleagues for standing up for the American people as Republicans attempt to rush their #ACA repeal bill through the House and hide the impact on Americans who will #PayMoreForLess .
