    She is a great rep. She calls it out all the time. And is beautiful as a woman just saying!

    Katie Porter is brilliant and she is doing more for you then any rep in any state. She is what your worst enemy fears on capital hill.

  4. There are 197 republicans in the House.
    13 of them are women. That’s 7%
    In America, 51% of people are women.
    Way to represent, republicMANS! 🤔🤔🤔

    I love this woman. She needs to be on Biden’s cabinet

      While I respect the first amendment- there is absolutely NO reason to call someone a moron.

      @Maggie Hogland – ok. Shallow thinker is probably more accurate. Has the intelligence but didn’t use it

    • Dave Ponsford | May 28, 2020 at 2:05 AM | Reply

      @Eddy Hanson a real moronic statement from a brainwashed fool who knows nothing. Go back to the right-wing delusional channels.

    • Wesley Brown | May 28, 2020 at 2:26 AM | Reply

      You’re very dull

    • @Eddy Hanson “I didn’t let her!”? How do you keep her leg irons from chaffing? It’s nice to know she’s staying “voluntarily”.

    I would love to see Katie Porter go up against #MoscowMitch. She’d tear him to pieces.

    Katy Porter is extremely talented person.

  8. This NEEDS to be looked at! We are struggling and terrified during these uncertain times!!

      Teva Lee : Please forgive my Copy&Pasting my comment, just once, from above? But I think it pertains?
      A science-based approach would save more lives, more jobs and more MONEY, America. Sadly, Donny has to get his Lobbyists PAID. And paid BEFORE the elections. So, his Herd of Sheeple are going for Herd Immunity, and we won’t have any choice in the long run. Even though this is how most sci fi apocalypse movies and video games start, should we be worried? I think so

    Smartest woman in government that actually CARES about people.

    Así mismo 🎉🎉🎉Señora KATIE PORTER 📣📣📣2020💯

  11. Rep.. Porter looks out for the people and doesn’t stand for BS

  12. Kathryn Shaw | May 28, 2020 at 1:25 AM | Reply

    We must get rid of Moscow Mitch and all of the Republican Senators that he insists on ruling like a King. The American people absolutely can not get any legislation passed unless it financially benefits Mitch McConnell.

  13. Pls, don’t overlook: there are lots of single dads too : full custody, full responsibility, one income, employers expect magic that you can provide childcare & be at work. . Pls be inclusive. &Yes, Senators are ignoring needs of
    main street citizens. Republicans are a virus.

      Yes but generally women still do more house work, child care etc. even in a two parent household. The women’s work whether as a Doctor, Lawyer or shop clerk is seen as being less important than the man’s whether Doctor Lawyer or shop clerk. This has been well researched and documented. So generally their work includes the work of running a house hold.

    • s whaht so did u lose ur job?

    They do nothing, they dont get paid.

    Its a result of Republicans bailing out billionaire donors only.

  16. Pamela Porter | May 28, 2020 at 2:07 AM | Reply

    It gets worse and worse for women with this administration. Yet, how do they plan on voting in November?

  17. Now THIS is great presidential material.

    Single dads too. It ain’t just single women out there

  19. Michael Kahr | May 28, 2020 at 6:28 AM | Reply

    Just compare Katie Porter and Moscow Mitch. He works exclusively for his donors while Katie works for the American people. Still, the Electorate College will continue to bring parasites like McConnell into government.

    Get them Katie Porter. I love the way you speak up for justice.
