                       PRESIDENT TRUMP'S 100 DAYS

  (Ms. DelBENE asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute.)

Ms. DelBENE. Mr. Speaker, President Trump's first 100 days have been chaos and confusion for American families and businesses. One thing is clear: he has consistently ignored the middle class. His budget decimates programs like Meals on Wheels. His tax plan is a huge giveaway to the wealthiest few. And now, he is trying to eliminate protections for people with preexisting conditions.

The Republican's latest bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act would be devastating. And as I have heard from constituents--hundreds of constituents throughout my district--getting sick should never mean going bankrupt, like Christine, from Kirkland, who was born with a congenital heart defect and relies on costly medical care to stay alive. She told me her condition is, “a cruel reality that is nobody's fault. But it is malicious and disgraceful that we might face financial ruin for me to stay alive.”

President Trump spent his first 100 days putting families like Christine's in jeopardy. This must change in the next 100 days for Christine and so many others. ____________________
