Happy Valentine's Day! As we go about our busy day enjoying tasty treats with friends and loved ones, admiring beautiful bouquets sent by admirers, or preparing gifts or special meals to celebrate Cupid’s special day, I hope you’ll all take a moment to remember that February is American Heart Month and today is “Go Red
The Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues is also leading the effort today to pass a resolution recognizing American Heart Month and National Wear Red Day (H.Res.972). The resolution, which notes that diseases of the heart are the leading cause of death in America and that stroke is the third leading cause of death in both American men and women, is part of the Caucus’ broader efforts to highlight the impact of heart disease on women.

Beyond today’s resolution to raise awareness about heart disease in women, the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues is working to pass the HEART for Women Act, legislation introduced to help ensure that heart disease and stroke are more widely recognized and more effectively treated in women. Last year I introduced this bipartisan bill with my colleagues Senators Debbie StabenowDeborah (Debbie) Ann StabenowOn The Money: GAO to investigate Trump aid for farmers | Bloomberg calls for bolstering Dodd-Frank | Where the 2020 Democrats stand on taxes GAO launches investigation into Trump aid for farmers Democrats worried about Trump's growing strength MORE (D-MI) and Lisa MurkowskiLisa Ann MurkowskiOvernight Health Care — Presented by American Health Care Association — Lawmakers raise alarms over Trump coronavirus response | Top official warns virus appears inevitable in US | Democrats block two Senate abortion bills Overnight Energy: Critics pile on Trump plan to roll back major environmental law | Pick for Interior No. 2 official confirmed | JPMorgan Chase to stop loans for fossil fuel drilling in the Arctic MacGregor confirmed as Interior deputy chief MORE (R-AK) and Barbara Cubin (R-WY).
