National Walkout Day Rally

Date: 03/27/2018
To the students in Maryland and across the country who are standing up to the gun lobby—I have a simple message for you: know your power. You are not only the future—you are the conscience of America and you can change the direction of our nation.

Senate Banking Hearing on Sanctions Enforcement and Policy Options on North Korea

Date: 09/08/2017
There is bipartisan agreement – echoed by expert testimony – that the rapidly escalating situation in North Korea demands quick action from Congress. We must expand and enforce sanctions against Kim Jong Un’s regime – and the BRINK Act would to do just that. This bill will put sharp enforcement teeth behind United Nations sanctions and send a clear message to anyone who has any business dealings with North Korean entities – you can do business with them or you can do business with the United States, but you can't do business with both.

A Better Deal on the Cost of Prescription Drugs

Date: 08/10/2017
As Democrats in Congress have been traveling to every corner of their states, they've been listening to the American people—and we’re all hearing the same thing: Too many Americans are feeling squeezed between flat or sinking paychecks on the one hand, and rising costs and prices on the other. But it’s is not enough to simply analyze or empathize with these challenges—we must have a plan to do something about it. That’s why House Democrats and Senate Democrats are laying out an economic plan that will give Americans A Better Deal and a fair shake is this supposed to say “share”. This plan includes specific ways we can work together to reduce the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, which have become unaffordable for too many of my constituents and working people across the country. I sat down with my friend and leader on this issue, Senator Al Franken to talk about a way forward to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

Combating the Opioid Epidemic

Date: 08/07/2017
This week I traveled to Beacon of Hope Recovery Center in St. Mary’s County to talk with health care professionals, law enforcement, and those in recovery about how important it is to treat addiction like a health issue, not a criminal justice issue. Sadly, while we’re working to do whatever necessary to combat a horrific opioid epidemic in Maryland and across the country, Senate Republicans’ “WealthCare” proposal will drastically cut Medicaid, and ultimately take away critical funding that these types of recovery centers rely on to give their patients the treatment they need. Now is the time to do what is necessary to ensure facilities like this one have the funding they need to help folks get their lives back on track to become full, productive members of society.

Questioning Secretary Pruitt on the EPA Website

Looking forward to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator's response as to why he took down factual evidence—hailed as the gold standard from both Democrats and Republicans alike—about climate change from the EPA’s website.

Floor Speech about Trumpcare 3.0

Date: 08/07/2017
I just finished reviewing the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report about the Senate Republicans’ "health care" bill. Right now I’m headed to the Senate Floor to talk about why this unconscionable bill—TrumpCare 3.0—is rotten to the core and more bad news for American families. Tune in and don’t forget to share with your friends and family across the country—affordable, quality health care is too important to stand idly by.

My first reactions to the Senate Republican's health care bill

Date: 08/07/2017
The Republican bill that was released today isn’t a health care bill, it’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America. I’ll fight this in the Senate, but I’ll need your reinforcement: We need everybody across Maryland and the country to share their stories about how this immoral monstrosity will impact their lives. We’ve got to stop it and I will fight tooth and nail, but we don’t have a lot of time since Republicans are trying to push it through before the end of next week. Let’s get to work.

Debating Trumpcare with Senator John Barrasso

Date: 08/07/2017
While Senate Republicans continue to craft a health care bill behind closed doors, I had the opportunity to debate with one of my Republican colleagues—Senator John Barrasso—on pieces of their secretive bill. Debate amongst opposing parties and open dialogue is what our democratic process is all about. But, it’s a real shame we only have a chance to debate the merits of the health bill with GOP senators on TV with no opportunity to provide input and amendments on behalf of the public in Committee.

Banking Hearing on Fostering Economic Growth

Date: 08/07/2017
Back in February, Ivanka Trump traveled to Baltimore to visit the Raymond V. Haysbert Center for Entrepreneurship to show her support for minority-owned and women-owned small businesses. I attended the opening of this Center last fall and was pleased to see Ms. Trump's interest. So you can imagine my surprise when the Trump Administration budget proposed to completely eliminate funding for the federal program that was used to launch the Center visited by Ivanka Trump. It appears to be yet another example of the Trump Administration saying one thing, but doing another. That’s why I asked Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to revisit this decision immediately.

Questioning Trump's Deputy OMB Director

Date: 08/07/2017
I’ve worked on a number of budgets in both the House and now the Senate and haven’t witnessed anything as fraudulent as President Trump’s so-called “budget.” And when I asked his pick for deputy budget director what he has to say about how the Trump Administration plans on “balancing” the budget through dishonest accounting on the backs of millions of working Americans, here’s what he had to say.

Discussing President Trump's firing of FBI Director Comey

Date: 08/07/2017
Firing Comey has the foul stench of an attempt to stop an ongoing investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. Yet another reason we need an independent prosecutor to investigate Trump's ties to Russia.

Answering your post-town hall questions

Date: 08/07/2017
It was great seeing democracy in action last week when close to 1,000 Marylanders showed up for the town hall hosted by Indivisible Baltimore. For those who weren’t able to attend, I asked folks to share their concerns, thoughts, and questions with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I received a great response, and below are answers to several of them. I look forward to continuing the conversation about how we can work together to fight for Maryland's families.

It’s Wrong to Have a Private Prison Industry That Has a Financial Stake in Locking More People Up

Date: 08/07/2017
It’s simply wrong to have a private prison industry that has a financial stake in locking more people up for non-violent crimes. That’s why Cory Booker and I joined together to call on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to respond to our letter about the urgent need to end federal reliance on our private prison system.

Questioning Trump's pick to head the USDA, Sonny Perdue

Date: 08/07/2017
The Chesapeake Bay is a national treasure and vital to the economy of Maryland. Our tourism and boating industry, along with the watermen rely on the bounty of the Bay. In Maryland, we’ve worked closely with our farmers to make sure we have both a vibrant farming industry on the Eastern Shore and a healthy Bay. The conservation programs are vital to our state, which is why I made sure Trump’s pick for Agriculture Secretary, former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue, heard my concerns about Trump’s proposed budget cuts to the Chesapeake Bay program loud and clear. Watch and then share your story in the comments below about how Trump's budget cuts to the Chesapeake Bay program will impact you and your community.

Why TrumpCare’s decimation of Medicaid will harm those with disabilities

Date: 08/07/2017
I joined my colleagues in the Senate and disability rights advocates from across the country to send a very simple message to President Trump: In the United States of America, everybody counts and no one should be left behind. Over 70 million Americans rely on Medicaid’s vital services that extend opportunity and healthy living, especially to the 15 million Americans with disabilities. Trumpcare—also known as "wealthcare”—slashes Medicaid and at the same time provides a huge windfall tax break to insurance companies and the wealthiest people in America. In fact, today's CBO report shows that the most recent version further increases the whopping tax cut to the very wealthy. Caring for all Americans shouldn’t be a partisan issue, and our President should highlight the remarkable contributions that Americans with disabilities have made to society—not mock, belittle, and attempt to defund critical legislation that helps make America more inclusive.

Thank you for being in this fight

Date: 07/28/2017
Thanks to everyone who fought so hard to make sure the Senate did the right thing on health care! Millions of voices from across Maryland and around the country were heard in the Senate Chamber last night when the final vote was cast at 1:40 am. As a result of all the rallies, phone calls, town halls, and emails, we were able to stop Senate Republican efforts that would have resulted in huge price spikes and tens of millions of Americans losing access to affordable care – all to give tax breaks to the powerful few. While we are relieved, we must remain vigilant. These zombie WealthCare bills have sprung back to life many times over the last seven months. In addition, President Trump has openly revealed that he will use every tool at this disposal to actively sabotage the Affordable Care Act. I hope the Republican Senators and President Trump do not go down this road. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves and work together in a bipartisan way to improve health care for all Americans. Many of us have proposed common sense measures to immediately stabilize the Health Care Exchanges, as well as ideas to dramatically improve our overall health care system. The American people have spoken loud and clear. They do not want to reverse the progress we have made -- they want to build on it in a way that makes affordable health care available to every American.

Celebrating the 27th Anniversary of the Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Date: 07/26/2017
On the 27th Anniversary of the Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), I stood in front of the Supreme Court with my colleagues Senator Casey and Senator Hassan, and Senator Duckworth to celebrate a piece of legislation that took a landmark step to level the playing field for individuals with disabilities. But our work is far from over.

We can't let up on our fight for affordable health care.

Date: 07/25/2017
Senate Republicans just embarked on a very dangerous journey. If we don’t stop them, the end of this journey will be incredible damage and harm to our health care system. What they’ve done is light the fuse, and we need to make sure that the fire doesn’t travel down and blow up the health care system – denying health care to tens of millions of Americans to give a tax break to the wealthy few. It’s a three alarm fire. We need everybody to call, email, text, and show up at your Senator’s offices here and back home. We need to put out the fire before Republicans blow up our health care system.

Better Deal for Maryland

Date: 07/24/2017
Too many Marylanders and folks across the country are working harder than ever but not getting ahead. Too many feel like they’re on a treadmill going nowhere or falling further behind. They are being squeezed between flat or shrinking paychecks, on the one hand, and rising costs on the other. And it is not enough to simply analyze or empathize with these challenges -- we must have a plan to do something about it. That’s why today, House Democrats [TAG] and Senate Democrats [TAG] are laying out an economic plan that will give Americans #ABetterDeal. The plan includes specific ways to promote good paying jobs and reduce the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, child care and other goods and services. It is vital that we continue to fight President Trump's efforts to turn back the clock on progress in America. But it is not enough that people know what we are fighting against; they must also know what we are fighting for. We are for a Better Deal for America. Watch and share.

A Better Deal for Maryland

Date: 07/24/2017
Marylanders and folks across the country feel like they’re working harder than ever, but in many cases feel like they’re on a treadmill going nowhere and falling further behind. That’s why House Democrats and Senate Democrats are laying out an economic plan that will give Americans #ABetterDeal by putting more money in Americans pockets with better pay and good paying jobs, cutting working families’ basic expenses, ensuring every American worker has the tools that they need to get ahead, and unrigging the economy so it works for more Americans – not special interests or just the wealthiest few.

Senator Van Hollen speaks to Andrea Mitchell about North Korea

Date: 07/17/2017
With Kim Jong Un now capable of launching an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach Alaska, the United States needs to exert maximum pressure on North Korea and its enablers to end it nuclear weapons program. North Korea has crossed a critical and dangerous threshold, and the United States must take action. That’s why today Senator Toomey and I introduced bipartisan legislation that will fill an important gap in our current sanctions regime against North Korea by going after the foreign banks and firms that have provided illicit support to Kim Jong Un. It will send a clear and unequivocal message: the economic consequences will be severe for those who continue to do business with North Korea. Our goal is to achieve a Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons.

With Kim Jong Un now capable of launching an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach Alaska, the United States needs to exert maximum pressure on North Korea and its enablers to end it nuclear weapons program. North Korea has crossed a critical and dangerous threshold, and the United States must take action. That’s why earlier this week Senator Toomey and I introduced bipartisan legislation that will fill an important gap in our current sanctions regime against North Korea by going after the foreign banks and firms that have provided illicit support to Kim Jong Un. It will send a clear and unequivocal message: the economic consequences will be severe for those who continue to do business with North Korea. Our goal is to achieve a Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons.

Rick's Werner Story

Date: 07/13/2017
Today I met my constituent Rick Werner and his family after he gave a moving testimony alongside another parent who had to endure the deep pain of losing his child to an opioid overdose. Rick told me about his son Jamie, who was a proud University of Maryland Terp, special education teacher, and an amazing cook with a kind heart. I am tremendously grateful for my constituents, like Rick and his family, who selflessly share their stories so that millions of other Americans can have the lifesaving health care they need. The pain associated with losing a child to substance abuse is one that no parent should ever have to endure, and make no mistake—it takes tremendous courage, grit, resolve, and strength to speak out. At the end of the day, these are the stories that people need to hear as we are fighting the Senate Republicans’ health care bill. I believe, with all of my heart, that these personal stories will save lives and give millions of others the strength they need to continue fighting this immoral bill.

Senator Van Hollen's Floor Speech on Senate Republicans' WealthCare Bill

Date: 07/12/2017
I’m grateful for the thousands of calls and emails I’ve received that oppose this immoral WealthCare bill, but we must continue to speak out. Now is not the time to slow down —the next three weeks will determine the fate of our health care system. Will we let Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans’ turn back the clock and raise health insurance premiums just to give the very wealthy and special interests a windfall tax break? Or will we continue to fight back tooth and nail to stop this unconscionable bill so we can move forward to improve our current system? It’s up to all of us, so tune as we continue the fight in the Senate.

Allison's Story

Date: 06/22/2017

President Trump is right: The Republican Health Care Bill is "Mean"

Date: 06/20/2017
President Trump behind closed doors said the bill that passed the House is plain “mean.” It’s mean to tens of millions of Americans, including millions of Marylanders. People like Molly from Baltimore, whose cancer would have gone undetected without the Affordable Care Act, and Katie from Westminster whose two-year-old daughter’s life would literally be on the line if Medicaid is cut. It’s time for Republican senators to come out of the dark to show us the bill. We need everybody in America to continue speaking out: Share your story using the hashtag #AmericaSpeaksOut.

Press Conference on the Republican Health Care Plan’s Age Tax

Date: 06/20/2017
The Republican plan includes an Age Tax on those between the ages of 50-64, which would make health care unaffordable for millions of older Americans including Susan Flashman, a 63-year-old woman who lives in Mount Rainier, Maryland, who battled a brain tumor in 2011 but was able to receive care because of insurance market protections. Under the GOP’s Age Tax, Susan’s health insurance would have been unaffordable.

Senator Van Hollen questions Secretary of State Tillerson

Date: 06/15/2017
It’s outrageous that President Trump hasn’t taken any actions against Russia for its interference in our elections, and is instead still considering returning diplomatic compounds in Maryland and New York that Russia used to spy on us – a point Secretary Tillerson reiterated while testifying in front of the Senate Appropriations Committee this week. By passing tough sanctions against Russia, the Senate this week sent a unified and unequivocal message to Putin: The United States will not stand idly when our democracy is under attack. These sanctions also prevent President Trump from allowing Russians access to the diplomatic compounds like the one of the Eastern Shore without the consent of Congress. I’ve long advocated for stronger sanctions on Russia, and I commend my colleagues for working across the aisle.

Memorial Day Message 2017

Date: 06/01/2017

Carol’s story is a reminder to "fight like hell" against Trumpcare

Date: 05/17/2017
Carol Hardaway is a substitute teacher who lives in Salisbury, Maryland, and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis over 20 years ago. Without the health care she received from the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion, she’d still be living in a country where every insurer she called would laugh at her, simply because she has several pre-existing conditions. Trumpcare would take us back to that time. It cuts Medicaid and Medicare by $880 billion and will health care unaffordable for the 2.6 million Marylanders with pre-existing conditions—just so Republicans can provide a huge windfall tax break to insurance companies and the wealthiest people in America.

Americans want to fix, not nix the Affordable Care Act

Date: 11/20/2013
Highlights from the interview: "You have confidence in Jeff Zients -- he's the czar, now, for the Healthcare Exchange -- he's the guy who was brought in, he has broad experience. So, we've got to get this thing working. Obviously it has gotten off to a very, very bumpy start. Very important that they get it fixed, up and running so that people can access these health care plans and find out that, in fact, a lot of these plans are much more affordable than the plans they have today." "Well, Tamron, the polls show overwhelmingly that the American people want to fix problems with Affordable Care Act as they come up. They don't want to get rid of it. In other words, they want to fix it, not nix it." "So, the American people understand that the status quo before the Affordable Care Act was unacceptable. They want to make the Affordable Care Act work. We want to work with people who want to fix it, but it's hard to work with people who are trying to actually just kill it and undermine the entire effort." "Our Republican colleagues want only to talk about Affordable Care Act. We should be working right now on the budget negotiations and focus on jobs and the economy. That means looking, I believe, at additional investment in our national infrastructure. It means replacing these very deep and immediate sequester cuts with the smarter approach, because those cuts are having a drag on the economy. That's according to the Congressional Budget Office. And, we have to deal with the issue of unemployment compensation. That expires at the end of this year. That's millions of Americans who are still looking for work, can't find it, need to make sure they put food on the table for their families."

Van Hollen Announces New Efforts on the DISCLOSE Act

Date: 07/12/2012
Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen announced that House Democrats will start the process to discharge the DISCLOSE Act 2012 from the House. In the wake of the Supreme Court's flawed ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, the DISCLOSE Act would add much needed transparency to the unlimited political expenditures now allowed by outside groups. "Every day, we see more secret money flooding into our elections and drowning out the voices of the American people. Congress should act immediately to pass the DISCLOSE Act, and I applaud the Senate for taking up the legislation next week. All we ask is that House Members have the same opportunity," said Congressman Van Hollen. "Voters have a right to know who is trying to influence their vote, and we owe it to them, and to the health of our democracy, to shine a light on the unprecedented money being spent by shadowy interests. These secret funders are trying to elect a Congress that will rig the rules to benefit their special interest agendas. We can't allow that to happen. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear from the DISCLOSE Act."

Rep. Van Hollen on Speaker Boehner's Reckless Debt Limit Ultimatum

Date: 05/16/2012
BLOOMBERG'S PETER COOK: We are joined by Congressman Chris Van Hollen, who is the top Democrat out of the Budget Committee. You were there at the Peterson Foundation event yesterday. Maybe you saw the Speaker's comments. Your reaction to the ultimatum he has put down? CONGRESSMAN CHRIS VAN HOLLEN: Well it is a very reckless step to take, a very reckless step for our economy. There is no dispute that we need to reduce our long-term deficits. The issue is how. Republicans have rejected the balanced approach that every bipartisan group has proposed, and now the Speaker of the House is out there again creating a self- inflicted wound on the economy. This is a manufactured crisis just like it was last August, but it is not harmless. It creates greater uncertainty in the marketplace and hurts the economy, and so those kinds of reckless statements should be simply out of bounds. To suggest that the United States is not going to pay its bills, to threaten that we will not abide by the full faith and credit of the United States is not fiscally responsible. It is fiscally reckless and irresponsible. I would also point out -- COOK: Let me ask you this -- there are certainly some viewers who might look at what John Boehner is talking about, sees the size of the federal deficit, and say, is it unreasonable to match spending cuts with an increase in the debt ceiling. What is wrong with the Boehner principle in principle? VAN HOLLEN: There are two issues. Number one, they have rejected the balanced approach to deficit reduction that combines cuts, which we have to make, with cuts to a lot of the tax loopholes. So he said we are only going to do this one way, and not in a balanced way, in a lopsided way. Number two, if you look at the House Republican budget, which they passed and the Speaker supported, it requires that you raise the debt ceiling by $5.2 trillion dollars over the next ten years. So the House Republican budget violates the rule -- the principle -- that was laid down by the Speaker of the House yesterday. You can't have it both ways. That is totally hypocritical. Beyond that, it is reckless in terms of creating uncertainties and laying down these lines when in fact what we need to be doing is coming together to find a way to deal with the issue. COOK: We are short on time. We have got this fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. This debt ceiling is just part of that discussion. For our viewers, for investors out there worried about what's going to happen, are we headed for gridlock? VAN HOLLEN: What I think all of us hope is that all these events will in fact force a productive solution. In other words, these are action-forcing events. By law, all the 2001, 2003 tax cuts expire. By law, the sequester will take place. By law, we have to deal with the debt ceiling issue. So the convergence of these events, I hope, will produce a focusing of the minds, that leads to a productive result. The danger is it is a combustible cocktail and you get something very bad -- a kind of train wreck. But I am very hopeful that we will work together to avoid those issues. But in order to do that, we cannot be making these ultimatums. And number two, you will have to be prepared to take a balanced approach to deficit reduction.

GOP Still Refusing to take a Balanced Approach

Date: 05/07/2012
CONGRESSMAN CHRIS VAN HOLLEN: Good morning, Craig. MSNBC's CRAIG MELVIN: The Budget Committee meeting today. You are concerned because Republicans want to cut even more, $261 billion from Federal programs. What's the problem as you see it, Congressman? VAN HOLLEN: Well, the problem, Craig, is more of the same. Meaning we all agree we have to reduce the long-term deficit. Democrats have proposed to do that in a balanced way. Meaning we make some tough cuts but we also closed a lot of these tax loop holes to help reduce the deficit. Our Republican colleagues refused to close any of these tax loop holes for the purpose of debt reduction which means, simple math; they whack everyone and everything else harder. What they're going to propose today is to cut deeply in the food and nutrition programs for kids. They're going to take about 300,000 kids off of the children's health program -- they'll no longer get that coverage. They are going to cut Medicare by two percent and allow that part of the sequester to go forward all because they refuse to end the taxpayer subsidies for the oil and gas industry or other loop holes that encourage American corporations to ship jobs overseas. MELVIN: Congressman, here is the thing. Republicans will have and most certainly continue to make the argument through November and beyond that, look, we are the party most serious about belt tightening in Washington. Here is another example of us trying to do that and Democrats like Congressman Chris Van Hollen being obstructionist. How do you counter that argument? VAN HOLLEN: Well, there are two things. First the most important thing we can do to begin to reduce the deficit is get the economy moving again and the President has proposed a jobs plan including a major infrastructure investment plan, which Republicans continue to sit on. Secondly, there is no debate about the need to reduce the long-term deficit. The question is how you do it. We put forward very concrete proposals. We make some tough cuts. For example, we get rid of a lot of these farm subsidies. The Republicans today aren't going to touch subsidies for some of the big agribusinesses. They're going to cut food and nutrition programs for kids so we've said, we need to do a mix of cuts but also revenues generated from closing some of the tax loop holes and because Republicans have all signed this pledge, the Grover Norquist pledge, saying they will not accept one penny for deficit reduction from closing loop holes or getting rid of the big subsidies for the oil companies. That means they hit everybody else harder. That means they end the Medicare guarantee in their budget. That means they whack other important investments in our economy. MELVIN: Will Democrats be offering their own proposal to replace the automatic cuts this time around? VAN HOLLEN: Yes. What we're going to pro-pose is a balanced plan that actually addresses the whole ten-year sequester. The Republican plan is focused just on the one year. We say we need to get together to take a balanced approach. We point out some of the key areas that we need to address in order to get that but let's be real. At the end of the day this is only going to happen in a bipartisan manner. And, unfortunately, our Republican colleagues continue to refuse to take the same kind of balanced approach recommended by bipartisan groups. MELVIN: Is it realistic to expect that Democrats and Republicans are going to be able to hammer out a budget deal before the election? VAN HOLLEN: Well, I'd like to say yes but unfortunately I think the answer is going to be no for the very reasons we're talking about right now. We will continue to put forward a balanced approach. At least to date our Republican colleagues continue to reject that and unfortunately today in the Budget Committee I think they'll once again reject that. MELVIN: An exercise in futility perhaps. VAN HOLLEN: That is the sad part of all of this. It would be best if we could resolve these big issues before the election. This is what the campaign is all about. After all Mitt Romney has said that the House Republican budget is a wonderful document meaning he's embraced this idea that we're going to protect all these tax breaks and the consequence of that is that you're going to end the Medicare guarantee, make deep cuts in education, cut investments and infrastructure even when we have huge unemployment in the construction industry so people are going to have a very clear choice. MELVIN: Congressman Chris Van Hollen from Maryland. Congressman, always a pleasure. Thanks so much. VAN HOLLEN: Very good to be with you.
