Congressman Veasey Inducted to the New Democrat Coalition
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33, was inducted into the New Democrat Coalition, a group of forward-thinking Democrats in the House of Representatives who are committed to growing our economy and increasing opportunity for all Americans. The New Democrat Coalition, now 68-strong, are committed to challenging outmoded partisan approaches to governing to advance pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies in Congress.
“I am proud to join the New Democrat Coalition to ensure the American Dream remains possible for all,” said Congressman Marc Veasey. “The challenges our nation faces – such as access to healthcare, creating new jobs, preparing our workforce for the jobs of tomorrow, and helping ensure a dignified retirement -- are too great to give into partisan fighting. I look forward to doing my part to bridge the gap between Democrats and Republicans in order to make effective public policy that benefits all American families.”
“The New Democrat Coalition is proud to induct Congressman Veasey and other solutions-oriented Members at a pivotal time in our nation’s history. They will help the Coalition continue to move beyond the partisan divide in Washington to advance innovative, pro-growth policies that will help all Americans and keep our nation secure,” said New Democrat Coalition Chair Jim Himes.
