  • Voted in favor of HR 3755 "Women's Health Protection Act of 2021." (votesmart.org)
  • "The right to a safe and legal abortion is under attack as never before. State legislatures across the country are eagerly advancing efforts to control a woman's freedom to make decisions about her own reproductive health," said Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. "The Women's Health Protection Act that we passed today defends the right to choose and empowers legal challenges against the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, like in Texas and Mississippi."

With these reforms, we are taking steps closer to achieving a government that more fully lives up to its promise of being of, by, and for the people."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)

Families were forced to choose between staying home to care for their children or returning to the workforce and relying on inefficient or scarce alternatives. Furthermore, as inflationary pressures increase and families face rising child care prices, this proposal will allow parents, families, and child care workers to offset part of that burden. The funding will allow those parents who have been unable to rejoin the workforce an opportunity to continue their careers, make sure that their children are adequately cared for, and support the existing child care workforce."

Jennifer sponsored legislation that would expand consumers' access to community solar energy, mandate quicker reporting on hazardous spills in Virginia waterways, and broaden the powers of the Department of Environmental Quality to go after polluters and stop construction of natural gas pipelines when they are adversely affecting our environment."

Before the current crisis, this sector employed 3.4 million people, two thirds of whom worked at companies with less than 20 employees. These were blue-collar and white-collar jobs in every state of the country. Over the past five years, this sector grew at a rate that is 70% higher than the national average, particularly in states such as California, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Michigan, North Carolina, and Ohio."

  • ""For too long, horrific acts of gun violence have been met with thoughts and prayers and no action," said Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. "Our efforts today to pass universal background checks and close the Charleston Loophole will save lives, make our communities safer, and take an overdue and major step in our fight to end the gun violence epidemic. Universal background checks are backed by over 90% of Americans and are a proven, common sense way to keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to public safety."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)

"We're facing a pandemic and the best way to safeguard Virginia families from the financial consequences of coronavirus is to do everything we can to help prevent its spread. Anyone who needs a test should be able to get one for free, and anyone who gets sick needs paid sick leave to stay home -- the Families First Coronavirus Response Act will safeguard the financial security of working families by prioritizing public health first and foremost." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Signed Letter to President Biden: “Furthermore, we cannot ignore the economic benefits of paid leave. Enacting paid leave also means that families will continue to earn some income at the very time when they need it most – when a family is growing or a member is sick and needs medical care. Workers will be able to continue to earn a portion of their wages, allowing them to continue to meet their basic needs and pay bills before returning to work. Moreover, lack of paid leave has meant that workers lose an estimated $22.5 billion in wages each year when that could have been used to keep a family afloat and spent in local economies."

The legislation also creates a new $2,000 out-of-pocket limit on prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "This legislation will bring down costs for working Virginians while building a cleaner economic future across the country, taking action to: Lower prescription drug prices: empowering Medicare to negotiate the price of prescription drugs, preventing excessive price hikes and capping seniors' out-of-pocket drug costs at $2,000. Lower health care costs: reducing premium costs for tens of thousands of Virginians by extending ACA subsidies for three more years, locking in average annual savings of $800 per person."

Policies like the now-defunct Muslim Ban ignore the many benefits of our diversity and instead stoke fear and xenophobia by targeting people simply because of their religion.

  • "The SALT deduction has protected Virginia taxpayers from double taxation for over 100 years, but that changed when Donald Trump and congressional Republicans imposed an unprecedented $10,000 tax cap punishing taxpayers in districts like mine. In 2017 my district had the highest average SALT deduction in Virginia at almost $18,000 and the greatest number of households claiming SALT at 213,500--more than half of my district. The SALT cap is unfair and punitive, hurting Virginians and over 11 million Americans. Hardworking taxpayers deserve better." (justfacts.votesmart.org)

  • Signed Letter to Speaker Pelosi: "The SALT cap is terrible tax policy: it upends a long tradition of fiscal federalism; it erodes incentives for home ownership and charitable contributions; it seeks to punish and defund state and local governments that pursue progressive policies, and it imposes a significant marriage penalty. Furthermore, the impact of this tax hike has not been random. It was deliberately aimed at districts like ours, where voters have chosen to fund with their taxes better schools, health care, transit, parks, and social services. Many of us earned the trust of voters last year because we promised to do everything in our power to restore the SALT deduction. The Democratic House majority would be far smaller and possibly non-existent if not for the promise we made. It is time to keep that promise. H.R. 5377 offers a balanced, fiscally responsible way to do so." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
