(WASHINGTON, DC)– Congressman Scott DesJarlais (R-TN-04) released the following statement after voting no on H.R. 4 and S. Con Res. 14.
“Last night Speaker Pelosi rammed through two bills that will cause great harm to the American people.
H.R. 4 will hand over central control over our elections to the federal government and strip states of their rights. S. Con Res. 14 is a disastrous $3.5 TRILLION spending blueprint that will drive inflation up and cause even more damage to our Nation’s economy.
House Democrats passed both bills on pure party-line votes. Not one Republican voted in favor of either piece of legislation.
Progressives are on a power trip and have given no thought to the consequences of their actions. Leftists are passing down trillions of dollars of debt for unnecessary pet projects to our children, grandchildren and the generations to come.”
