Statement on the First Week in the Second Session of the 113th Congress

Brooklyn, N.Y. – Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke issued the following statement on the first week of activity on Capitol Hill since Congress returned from the holidays for the Second Session of the 113th Congress.

“I returned to Washington, D.C. prepared to work on the issues that matter to American families – restoring unemployment benefits to the millions whose benefits have expired, protecting nutrition assistance for children and senior citizens, and continuing the discussion on immigration reform,” said Congresswoman Clarke. “Instead, I returned to find more votes to eliminate affordable health care for millions of people who have recently enrolled and hearings about controlling women’s health care choices.”
