August 17, 2017 Press Release
Donald Trump is unfit for office. His despicable actions this week have confirmed that he lacks the moral fortitude to be the leader of the free world and simply cannot be trusted to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution against all threats, foreign and domestic. I will vote in favor of censure, and call on Congressional Republicans to take meaningful action to rein in this Administration.

I am deeply disappointed in President Trump’s decision to withdraw such a fundamental right from American citizens.

Thousands of transgender Americans are honorably serving in the military, and I reject any action that diminishes their courage and sacrifice. This is a dark day for our Armed Forces and our nation.

Yesterday, Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) introduced the Federal Employee Pension Act of 2017 (H.R. 3269). The bill would repeal sections of the Middle-Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 that raised mandatory pension contributions of new federal employees to 4.4 percent. Brown’s legislation would roll back this requirement to pre-2012 levels, setting the mandatory contribution amount to 0.8 percent expanding the net take-home pay for federal workers. Cutting benefits and increasing mandatory pension contributions use dollars earned by federal workers to balance the budget.
