DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has released the following statement in response to the Republican dysfunction in the House of Representatives:
“Republican dysfunction in the House of Representatives is preventing Congress from taking action to help middle class families and create greater opportunity for every American. House Republicans continue to waste taxpayer time and money on baseless investigations and government shutdowns. The Tea Party caucus has now claimed one Speaker and two Speakers-in-waiting.
“Meanwhile, Democrats have created 13 million jobs, 67 straight months of private sector job growth, and extended access to quality, affordable health care for 17 million Americans. The choice for American voters between Democrats and Republicans could not be any more clear.”
