Issa: American People Know Partisan Democrat Bill Won’t Build Anything Better, Just Destroy it Faster

November 19, 2021

WASHINGTON D.C. - Today, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) issued the following statement regarding the House passage of H.R. 5376.
“The American people know this won’t build anything better. It will just destroy it faster.
“While Americans in every corner of the country are suffering from skyrocketing inflation and diminishing economic opportunity, House Democrats have other priorities.
"Democrats aren’t interested in fixing our current energy crisis; they’re giving away billions to Green New Deal activists.
"Democrats aren’t interested in stopping the worst border crisis in history; they’re starving our Border Patrol and promoting amnesty – even for criminals.
"Democrats aren’t interested in demanding that our stranded citizens in Afghanistan be a top priority; they’re covering for Biden’s abandonment and devoting no new resources to bringing them home.
"Democrats aren’t interested in easing the high tax burden on tens of millions of Americans; they’re unleashing the IRS as never before.
"Democrats aren’t interested in consensus, cooperation or transparency. Instead, they drafted a bill behind closed doors, negotiated in bad faith, broke their own procedural rules, and passed it with a party-line vote.”

Darrell Issa is the Representative of California’s 50th Congressional District. The District encompasses the central and northeastern parts of San Diego County and a portion of Riverside County, including the communities of Fallbrook, San Marcos, Valley Center, Ramona, Escondido, Santee, Lakeside, El Cajon, Temecula, and the mountain and desert areas of the San Diego-Imperial County line. Issa served as the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform from 2011-2015.
