This separation of powers has always been one of the most important pillars of our political system and an example of good governance for the world to follow.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor today released the following statement commending House passage of H. Res. 499, a resolution expressing the House's support for Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression:
"Last week, the House overwhelmingly passed a bill to provide loan guarantees to bolster the new Ukrainian government. Today, the House has again demonstrated its support for the people of Ukraine by passing H. Res. 499, a resolution expressing the House's support for Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the following statement on three pieces of legislation that remove punitive mandates under ObamaCare that punish volunteers, veterans, and those with certain sincerely held religious beliefs:
"We all know ObamaCare is not working, but the bottom line is that no law should jeopardize our American values of religious freedom, military service, volunteerism, and entrepreneurship. The legislation that the House has passed today will uphold these values while encouraging businesses to hire more veterans. These are bipartisan, commonsense bills that should immediately be taken up by the Senate so we can work together to protect Americans from the negative consequences of ObamaCare. I thank Representatives Aaron Schock, Lou Barletta, and Rodney Davis for their work on these important bills."
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor today released the following statement regarding H.R. 4160, the Keep the Promise to Seniors Act:
"House Republicans are serious about protecting seniors and the Medicare programs that they rely on, which is why we scheduled the Keep the Promise to Seniors Act for floor consideration today. The Administration's proposed rule changes to Medicare Part D would have harmed seniors and made prescription drugs more expensive for too many who need the care. In response to today's anticipated legislative action, CMS sent notice to Congress that they had reconsidered the rule changes to Medicare Part D that would have harmed seniors.
