“The Democrats know their socialist agenda is not what the country wants. That is why they are moving to dismantle our institutions to hold onto their power.
“Last week, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler was at the Supreme Court pushing to add four more Justices to the bench — upending a framework that has been in place since 1869.
“Yesterday, it was reported 100 Democrats have signed a letter urging Senate Democrats to abolish the filibuster — in essence the Democrat Party is pushing to silence the voice of millions of Americans.
“And today, House Democrats are voting on D.C. statehood, another ploy to consolidate power, so they can jam through socialist policies like the Green New Deal, court packing, and defunding the police.
“They are not even denying this is their objective. Rep Raskin is on the record saying: ‘There’s a national political logic for [D.C. statehood], too, because the Senate has become the principal obstacle to social progress across a whole range of issues.’
“That doesn’t exactly support their ‘representation’ argument… Make no mistake about it, H.R. 51 is just Democrats’ latest attempt at a power grab.
“While Democrats are trying to control the lives of the American people, Republicans are working on showing we have the right policies to effectively govern.
“Since March 15th, nearly a third of our conference has traveled to the border to observe the [border crisis]. By contrast, the top Democrat in charge of the border situation, has spent a month avoiding our southern border.
“We have offered commonsense solutions to address Biden’s Border crisis, but Democrats have chosen inaction…
“Gary Palmer, our policy director, just released a comprehensive look at what Republicans have done at the border… so [Vice President Harris] can learn firsthand [about] the crisis that has happened [due to] their policies…
“The actions of the Democrats are more about control of our lives. Control the elections, control other branches of government [by trying to] pack the Supreme Court… trying to achieve D.C. statehood…
“If you ask Americans what they want, there’s four simple things we should be focusing on: going back to work, back to school, back to health, and back to normal.
“That’s what Republicans have focused on, and that’s what we will continue to focus on.”
