Governing is a question of priorities. Listen to what the House Democrats are prioritizing. Listen to what they’re doing today while crucial legislation goes unfinished. ⇩

In less than three years, President Trump has appointed and the Republican Senate has confirmed 50 circuit judges. That is already the most in any president’s whole first term since 1980.

Democrats must finally let defense funding move forward after blocking resources for our troops for months. Let’s finally get this done.

Democrats’ impeachment obsession has pushed key legislation to the 11th hour. Government funding has been jeopardized by the House’s procrastination. Democratic leadership must not stand in the way of bipartisan solutions that families across America deserve.

But it does not have to end this way. I know earnest discussions are still underway as our colleagues in both chambers work to fix this. I urge the Democratic leadership to let the committees do their work, let the Congress do its work, & let us pass bipartisan funding bills.

When 94% of Senate Democrats could not even vote to protect babies after they’re born, we are no longer dealing with a normal, traditional Democratic Party.

Every time the Trump administration meets Speaker Pelosi halfway on the USMCA, she tries to move the goalposts. The Speaker literally has not even updated her own talking points since Valentine’s Day. Textbook obstruction.

House Democrats’ impeachment resolution would just codify their unfair process. Here’s what it contemplates: 1. No due process now 2. Maybe some later 3. But only if they feel like it No American, the president or anyone else, should be subjected to this kind of unfairness.

Washington Democrats have been engaged in a three-year-long impeachment parade in search of a rationale. Prominent House Democrats were promising impeachment at the very beginning of this presidency. Fairness and due process are not their objectives here.
