Nearly 500 of you joined me on January 15 at a rally to save the Affordable Care Act from repeal by the GOP, which would throw our health care system into chaos. We won't let them take life-saving care from tens of millions of Americans without a fight, but we must be united.
President Trump should be working to build an administration that promotes unity. Instead, he is appointing advisors and considering cabinet nominees who have proven divisive. I urge Mr. Trump to change course and pledge to be a president who represents all Americans.

Every day, somewhere in this country there’s a news account about how opioid addiction has wrecked a small town or family -- personal stories of typical Americans who became addicted to pain pills, and then got hooked on heroin.

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO), Chief Deputy Whip, said President Donald J. Trump's first budget request is short-sighted and would be ruinous for the United States.
Denver – Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO), Chief Deputy Whip, said today’s Congressional Budget Office assessment of the Republican bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act proves that Americans would be better off if Congress works on a bipartisan basis to amend the ACA rather than jamming through a unilateral repeal.
