Months ago, I asked Republicans to show us their plan to overhaul health care. I wanted to see the plan that candidate Donald Trump said would be "terrific." I wanted to see the plan Republicans have had seven years to put together.

We didn't get a terrific plan. We got the AHCA. It guts Medicaid. It leaves 23 million fewer Americans with health insurance over the next decade. It weakens...

Happy Father's Day to all dads and father figures in Minnesota and across our country. Being a father is rewarding for so many reasons, and if you're lucky, it often leads to being a grandfather too. Here I am with my grandson Joe, who along with my grandkids Jacob and Avery, brings Franni and me more laughter and joy than we ever thought was possible.

A lot is going on right now, but I want to remind you that while everyone is entitled to their own opinions, you aren't entitled to your own facts, and the existence of man-made climate change is a fact. And the thing about facts is that they remain true whether people believe them or not.

I believe we must all take action to reduce gun violence. I'm going to continue doing everything in my power to make sure we pass meaningful reforms because families of victims and the American people have had enough. It's time to crack down on gun violence.

For those of you who haven't met me, run into me at the State Fair, or enjoyed one of my massive Paul Bunyan Apple Pies at a DFL event—I'm Franni, Al's wife.

I wanted to let you all know Al's birthday is today!

To be honest, Al's days have been pretty full. When he’s not in Washington, he's traveling all over Minnesota. When he’s not traveling all over Minnesota, he’s on a plane flying to...

Troubling news that you probably know by now: President Trump fired the person tasked with investigating his and his team's ties to Russia.

More troubling news: Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who told the American people he'd recuse himself from the Russia investigation after misleading the public—while under oath—in his confirmation hearing about whether he had met with the Russians,...

What do you call a healthcare plan that kicks millions off their health insurance, providing less coverage for larger costs? House Republicans call it their replacement for the ACA. And they're voting on it today.

I call it unacceptable—and if we all rally right now, by the end of the day, we'll be able to call it a failure.

Sign on to hold House GOP accountable.

You shouldn't have to choose between paying for your groceries, making rent on time, or being able to afford your prescriptions. And while I can't say I was pleased by much of what President Trump said leading up to Election Day, I didn't have a problem with his promise of “when it comes time to negotiate the cost of drugs, we are going to negotiate like crazy." It's time for President Trump...

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: women should be able to make their own decisions about their health and bodies.

President Trump and Republicans in Congress seem to think otherwise.

Yesterday, in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, President Trump signed legislation that reverses a crucial rule that prohibits state and local governments from withholding federal funding from...

President Trump and Republicans in Congress undid a rule that protected your private information online—because, you know, that's not important. Now whenever you look at something online, the huge company you pay for access to the internet—like Comcast or Verizon—can collect your information, sell it to the highest bidder, and tell you nothing.

I've always believed that your fundamental right to privacy is more important than corporate interests, but it's clear that the Republicans who voted to kill important internet privacy rules don't necessarily agree.

Women deserve to be able to make their own choices about their health. I care deeply about Planned Parenthood because they've been making it possible for women to make choices for themselves and their families for over 100 years. With continued attacks on women's reproductive rights and efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, Republicans in Congress are telling women that they don't deserve to...
