On March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Wednesday, Senator John Burton (Ret.), Chairman of the California Democratic Party, and Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez released statements in recognition of this significant anniversary.
No one built this country on their own. This nation is great because we built it together. This nation is great because we worked as a team. And if we hold fast to that truth, in this moment of trial, there is no challenge too great; no mission too hard. As long as we are joined in common purpose, as long as we maintain our common resolve, our journey moves forward, and our future is hopeful, and the state of our Union will always be strong.”
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is proud to unveil her 2011 Holiday Card. The famous card was sent electronically to Loretta’s friends and supporters, who for the first time were able to vote for the theme of the card. Thousands of ballots were marked online and voters chose by an overwhelming percentage to be surprised.
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47), on Thursday offered the final amendment to the Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act of 2011, H.R. 527. Rep. Sanchez’ motion to recommit, which did not pass, would have ensured that H.R. 527 does not prohibit the implementation of recently passed incentives that help small businesses to hire veterans.
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47) today led a letter to California Governor Jerry Brown urging him to consider a balanced approach to California’s state budget crisis – one that cuts costs but does not make the most vulnerable communities in California bear the majority of the burden of budget reductions.
