WASHINGTON, DC - I was disappointed in the President's address tonight. Once again, President Trump has failed to unite the country and offer Congress tangible policy proposals that would actually grow our economy. I am ready and willing to work with my Republican colleagues to rebuild and repair our infrastructure, grow our economy, and combat the opioid epidemic.
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) announced his guest for the State of Union Address next week. Ana Campa Castillo is a DREAMer who arrived in the United States from Mexico City when she was six years old.
WASHINGTON, DC - Last week, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) called on President Trump to take further action to combat the opioid epidemic.
WASHINGTON, DC - I supported the three-week continuing resolution to give Republicans time to make good on their promise to debate and to hold a vote on immigration and the DREAM Act. Meanwhile, Republicans have done tremendous damage through their failure to bring even a single spending bill to the President’s desk for a signature.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement on the government shutdown:
WASHINGTON, DC - I voted against the continuing resolution, because it is just another temporary patch that does not address the problems we are elected to solve.
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) urged the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to retract any order that bans the use of particular words or phrases by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in budget requests. The letter was signed by 73 Members of Congress.
WASHINGTON, DC - I opposed the Republican Tax Plan, because it is a massive Christmas gift to large corporations and wealthy campaign donors that is paid with more than $1 trillion in new debt that our children must repay in the future.
WASHINGTON, DC - This resolution is yet another last minute stopgap measure that fails to provide solutions that hardworking Americans need from the people who represent them. We still have a long list of priorities to resolve.
WASHINGTON, DC - I absolutely condemn sexual assault and sexual harassment. No one should have to work in a professional environment where this kind of behavior is condoned. Whether it’s the disgusting and disturbing events in Alabama or the events with Senator Franken, Congressman Conyers, and President Trump, any type of this behavior is unacceptable.
