Democrats have been obsessed with impeaching President Trump since the day he was inaugurated. It is now their objective to remove from office the duly elected President of the United States. In this manic attempt to impeach the President, Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority in the House have blatantly ignored or purposely politicized most other issues that matter to the American people or would progress the state of our country.

Yesterday, Leader McCarthy and Leader McConnell highlighted Speaker Pelosi’s politicization of the bipartisan U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, a trade deal that would create new jobs, expand export markets, strengthen protections for workers, and generate billions of dollars in new prosperity.

Today we are reminded of the Democrats’ obstruction to lowering the cost of prescription drugs.

Earlier this year, there were three bills debated in the Energy and Commerce Committee that every Democrat and every Republican agreed would lower prescription drug prices. But after it left committee and went to the Speaker’s desk, Pelosi, behind closed doors, loaded it up with known poison pills before the floor vote to ensure Republicans opposed the bill and that it would never help Americans better afford prescription drugs.

Now, Americans are left without a bipartisan plan to lower the price of drugs that millions depend on.

“This Democrat majority has dragged our country through investigation after investigation in the pursuit of a political victory and at the cost of finding solutions to everyday problems for Americans, like the extravagant cost of prescription drugs,” House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) says. “This is just one example of many in which Democrats have put their own political interests ahead of the country. For them, it’s not about doing what’s best for the American people, it’s about resisting working with Republicans at every turn in order to score cheap political points.”
