WASHINGTON, D.C.— Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement upon House passage of the Democrats’ resolution of disapproval:
“Tonight’s resolution serves no one and fixes nothing.
“Over the past weeks, the radical Democrat agenda has been in plain view: the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, abortion extremism, and free health care for illegal immigrants. Fights over socialist policies within the Democrat caucus dominated the headlines. That is, until Democrats rushed this resolution to the House floor in order to unify around their opposition to President Trump.
“This resolution divides our nation and distracts us from addressing the issues the American people sent us here to solve. It’s time House Democrats start focusing on the real problems facing the American people, instead of their own.”
