WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s announcement:
“It’s been an incredible honor to serve with Speaker Pelosi – she’s a role model, a mentor, and a friend. Her leadership style of ‘respect, include, and empower’ has helped to guide my colleagues and me as we work to create a brighter future for all Americans. Speaker Pelosi is a brilliant political mind – time and again, she has defied the odds to deliver results for the American people and improve the lives of children and families across this country.
“Her list of accomplishments is extraordinary – from getting the Affordable Care Act over the finish line to expand health insurance to over 20 million Americans, to passing the American Rescue Plan to safeguard families, businesses, and our economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our nation is better off because of Speaker Pelosi’s life’s work.
“As Speaker Pelosi says, ‘when women succeed, America succeeds’ – as the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House, she has empowered women and girls across the world to envision themselves in positions of power and strive for greatness. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside her in the U.S. Congress.”
