Slaughter Slams the Republican Leadership's Divisive Agenda in Congress

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY-28), Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee, spoke out against the divisive and diversionary agenda embraced by the Republican Majority in the House last week.

“At a time of international crisis, Republicans have no answers,” Rep. Slaughter said, “and they are abusing their position in the House to pass meaningless legislation that won’t have any impact on the lives of the American people.”

“It doesn’t matter what the challenges this nation faces are,” Rep. Slaughter said. “Republicans just go back to the same old playbook. Rising gas prices and a record national debt? Ban gay marriage. War erupting in Iraq and the broader Middle East? Protect the Pledge of Allegiance.”

“This is a failed Republican Congress, and this week demonstrates their failure to lead America in the right direction,” Rep. Slaughter said.

“If the American people want a Congress that responds to their concerns – about security, the economy, and global instability – with meaningful action, then we need a change of leadership in the House.”
