The finale! https://t.co/0KYRf3NEWyCongrats @willienelson! https://t.co/S6fUlX8IaVPaul Simon at @librarycongress Gershwin Prize Concert in honor of @willienelson. Great show. https://t.co/bFbF9pRvRcDespite hysteria, cuts to crop insurance program won’t be “devastating.” Good analysis from @ewg: https://t.co/5mUzY40mJxDEA chief recently called #medicalmarijuana a joke. What is a joke is the job he's doing. Rosenberg needs to go! https://t.co/8m0dTsh0Ha.@tacobell to use cage-free eggs. Major achievement & victory for this movement! Hope the rest follow. https://t.co/OqZJLaQKq0
In the wake of terrorist attacks, US should be welcoming Syrian refugees, not turning our back on them. Here’s why: https://t.co/X2OqYoHIjv

past time to insure that the VA and Congress keeps faith with our veterans and the skilled employees who serve them.exciting to see Senate approve provision like my bill to allow veterans to use VA doc to participate in medical marijuana where it is legalToday, we honor our nation’s veterans. We should show our thanks, not just speak it, by providing quality benefits promised. #VeteransDay
What a spectacular victory for the Timbers....convincingly in charge from start to finish!
We’ve got it backwards–too much spending to build weapons while we shirk our responsibility to clean up toxic waste: https://t.co/zqf9JdvXosMake it 7: MI is latest red state to raise gas tax, while House debates a transpo bill w/ no funding certainty, no talk of how to pay for it
25 mile mark for the NY Marathon, lots of good memories of earlier races during my run in Central Park today https://t.co/s4iP5WzFWk
Speaker hitting all the right notes, thanking the people who make the House runNice touch with the tissues, Mr Speaker.Boehner and Hoyer In the well. The soon to be ex speaker already appears to be emotional.Key Question as Ryan starts on high note is how he uses the momentum, good will and political capitalInteresting to see Mitt Romney arrive to watch the guy he helped launch get sworn in as speaker
Joined in Rayburn room in Capitol during quiet afternoon meeting by mouse, which should signify something https://t.co/dAWeAQFGLX
Gowdy leaves the room and Clinton soldiers on9 1/2 hours after I watched Sec Clinton's opening statement, she is still going strong, poised and patient. And the GOP is 0 for October !Adam Schiff brilliant in destroying the process that is the partisan charade that is the GOP Benghazi Committee.Great tutorial by Sec. Clinton for Rep Brooks on how the Secretary of State does business. Good for Americans to hear. Will GOP listen?Cummings nails the GOP for false claim of Clinton interference with Benghazi securitySitting behind @HillaryClinton as she makes powerful presentation to #Benghazi Committee.
I'm outraged. Expressions of hate don't belong in PDX or anywhere: https://t.co/pUg0ogSWaa. Stand behind Ahavath Achim & our Jewish friends.Our PACE Innovation Act passes! Will serve our most vulnerable a model of care supporting independence & quality of life. cc: @RepChrisSmithWhere we're going, we won't have roads unless we raise the gas tax to #FixTheTrustFund. #BacktotheFuture https://t.co/bTEiMW6XtFDelighted emerging OR cannabis industry is in DC. Fed govt must get out of the way & let them grow & create jobs. https://t.co/mj0Riq9ETnGet it in writing, Paul. https://t.co/r7P2p1e4ud
Celebrating OR's first 2 weeks of successful #marijuana sales w/ @NCIAorg tonight. Let's end failed prohibition now! http://t.co/UYuBO6Ygh9It's embarrassing just how spineless Congress is on transpo. This isn't hard. Keep it simple: Raise the gas tax. http://t.co/448PoZqJ4rJury is in. #DemDebate had substance, showing difference between Republicans & Democrats. We actually have people who can run the country.
Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day!
Music blaring in House gym "Another one bites the dust" as some of my GOP colleagues exercise. I suggested they consider another song.
#LWCF has been vital to protecting the environment & conserving treasured land across OR & around the country. Congress must #SaveLWCF.We need to eliminate unique & foolish pre-funding requirement, then allow #USPS to innovate, create revenue & serve the public. (2/2)The last thing we should do is tear apart & sell off parts of #USPS to fix the crisis Congress created. http://t.co/rZPxEdVDbq (1/2)
@Slaterade Here's my plan and my actions: http://t.co/hso7dZpZGI@PDXToddDiskin @SenJeffMerkley @RonWyden Here's my plan: http://t.co/hso7dZpZGII hope we can summon political courage to stop gun violence. We need more than thoughts & prayers. We need action. https://t.co/4DNqaFtoIW@GlenBikes List is on this page. https://t.co/hso7dZpZGI@GlenBikes https://t.co/5FCjcklnpFStunned by reports of a shooting in my home state of OR. My thoughts & prayers are w/ UCC as we struggle to cope w/ this tragedy.With all of the Planned Parenthood drama this week—no appearance by creator of doctored videos before Congress. Curious. #StandWithPP
#GOPshutdown averted for now—another example of broken process. While this charade plays out, real issues remain. America deserves better.Americans support #Medicare payments for end-of-life care conversations: http://t.co/wrp0TLVgm0. No surprise here. Let's get this done!@DanRiffle @tomangell I meant to say that marijuana is less dangerous than tobacco. I'm submitting a correction to the Congressional record!
Outrageous. Failed prohibition has needlessly disrupted the lives of millions of Americans. This needs to stop. https://t.co/g4KbFT54I3Our community is a better place because of the @PDXMarathon. What makes it such a special convention? http://t.co/4zQQ9IEYxh #pdxmarathonShell has abandoned offshore Arctic drilling. Great news! The Arctic is an ecological treasure. #StopArcticDrilling http://t.co/taYMKzEs0vWhat a great way to start the week, with animal protection advocates from across the country. http://t.co/lhYU8AfNECIt couldn’t be more clear. We need a smarter approach to wildfire spending. Can’t we come together on this? http://t.co/SW6j8CS49t
Total lunar eclipse here on clear night in DC. "Blood moon" must mean something.
It's National Public Lands Day! Let's fight to protect our public lands in OR & across the country for wildlife, recreation & conservation.
Thousands await the Pope and his message of hope & responsibility for the planet and our fellow humans. http://t.co/c6I00z8ZI9The Pope's appearance to the thousands outside the Capitol sparked joy seldom seen in DC. A lesson here ??? http://t.co/ytnX0SvI9oFirst joint session of Congress I've attended where everyone showed up on time. Hopefully the good mood continues for Pope's presentationI hope Congress heeds Speaker Boehner’s advice on Pope's address: listen, open our hearts to his message & reflect on his example. #PopeInDCRe-read Pope’s encyclical on plane back to DC. It was even more powerful & compelling. Can’t wait for his address to Congress. #PopeInDC
1/2 of OR bridges need repair, state short $180M. State needs to do more but fed govt should step up & do its part. http://t.co/12BVps27s2Green Electronics Council is helping the fed govt to harness market forces & promote sustainable practices in the electronics sector. (2/2)Grateful to accept award from Green Electronics Council, but the real honor is to serve as their Congressman.
