From the Speaker’s Press Office:
More than one month after publicly promising to meet with Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone to discuss the horrors he experienced on January 6th, Minority Leader McCarthy’s office has not even reached out to Officer Fanone to set up a meeting.
House Democrats passed widely popular legislation to put shots in arms, money in pockets, and people back in jobs, and the results show that the Rescue Plan is continuing to put money back into the pockets of the American people.
U.S. jobless claims fell to a new pandemic low last week as vaccinations increased and businesses continued to pick up hiring.
President Biden and House Democrats’ shots in arms, money in pockets and aid to small businesses are powering rising wages and record job growth with 559,000 jobs added in May and 2 million jobs created since President Biden took office.
But every single House Republican voted to block that progress.
House Republicans voted against putting money in pockets, people back in jobs, and kids back in school – and the American people noticed.
This week, Minority Leader McCarthy rejected a bipartisan compromise negotiated by one of his own ranking committee members in a brazen attempt to hide the truth about the January 6th violent insurrection at the Capitol.
It’s safe to say that people noticed.
Some of the highlights of McCarthy’s decision to side with January 6th deniers:
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is still refusing to set a meeting with D.C. Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone to discuss the horrors he experienced.
Officer Fanone was beaten with a flag pole, concussed, and suffered a heart attack while protecting McCarthy and other lawmakers from Capitol insurrectionists.
As Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy attempts to block the creation of a bipartisan commission to examine January 6th, the Republican Leader is also refusing to set a meeting with a DC police officer hoping to share his story from the day of the insurrection.
