"What Donald Trump said last night was vile, racist, and demands condemnation. Some say Trump tells the truth because he speaks “ what’s in his heart.” If this is what is in his heart he is not fit to be President. Last night’s offensive comments, uttered in the Oval Office no less, show him in a bright and ugly light. It is disgraceful that the President of the United States had a racist rant in the White House on the eve of the weekend on which we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

"As a lawyer I have approached impeachment deliberately and thoughtfully. Taking steps to impeach a President is a gravely serious matter. Practically and politically, I think most of us can agree that passing articles of impeachment in this House isn’t realistic at this moment in our history. But sometimes, it’s more important to follow your heart than do the practical or political calculation. Today, I followed my heart and cast a vote to begin a debate on whether this President has committed impeachable acts. It’s time to have an open, honest debate on President Trump and his fitness for office."

H.R. 1, the Tax Cut and Jobs Act
The taxes of 36 million middle income filers will go up. A key reason for this is because H.R. 1 terminates or limits many deductions that help people lower their tax obligations. Ultimately, this legislation increases our nation’s debt by $1.7 trillion. I voted NO.
