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

Today, I joined House Democrats and advocates, led by @repbarbaralee, to speak out against the #TrumpBudget and its #BrokenPromises. America is great because it provides its people with opportunities to get ahead, no matter where they started out. This budget will make it harder: harder to send your kids to college, harder to access job training to get ahead, and harder for seniors to access Meals on Wheels. #HandsOff

I was proud to stand with my Democratic colleagues @RepJohnYarmuth, @NitaLowey, @RepJayapal, @RepDerekKilmer, and NDD United to call for robust investment in domestic priorities. We can't have a secure nation if our citizens aren't educated, aren't healthy, and don't have access to opportunities.

Enjoyed testing out the College of Southern Maryland's Talons Robotics Teams bots this afternoon. I think I'll leave the competing to the outstanding students!

Proud to join @michelleobama in wishing college-bound students a happy #CollegeSigningDay. #GoTerps #ReachHigher

Thank you to everyone who came to the Capitol grounds today to make their voice heard in opposition to #TrumpCare. With your voices, with your signs, with your hands, and with your hearts, we will stand together in opposition to this bill.

I’m about to go to the Floor to vote no on #TrumpCare, which would kick 24 million Americans off of their health coverage. I hope you’ll join me in holding every Republican who votes for this bill accountable for taking health care away from millions of Americans.

I was proud to join my Democratic colleagues from both the House and Senate on #ImmigrantRights Day and stand in solidarity with immigrants.

On #TakeYourChildtoWorkDay, a #TBT to when my daughters joined me at my swearing-in ceremony at the Maryland State Senate.

This afternoon, I spoke with advocates with the #ProtectOurCare coalition about the House Republicans’ dangerous #TrumpCare bill, which would kick 24 million Americans off of their coverage, spike premiums, and allow insurers to make coverage unaffordable for those with preexisting conditions. As the GOP considers bringing #TrumpCare to the Floor, we need all hands on deck to push back on efforts to take away health care from millions.

I really enjoyed visiting Ms. Bailey's fifth grade class at Rosa Parks Elementary School this morning. These students are doing a terrific job, and I was glad to answer their great questions about serving in Congress.

Today, I joined Rep. Rosa DeLauro and @senpattymurray to recognize #EqualPayDay and reintroduce the Paycheck Fairness Act. I was proud that the first bill I brought to the Floor when I was Majority Leader in 2009 was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and I am proud to co-sponsor the Paycheck Fairness Act to build on the progress that we have made. I urge Republicans to bring the bill to the Floor for a vote, so we can ensure #equalpay for equal work.

The Whip Watch 2.0 app has a number of new features that will help Members of Congress, staff, the press, and the public follow the Floor. The link to download it for free in the App Store can be found in my bio.
