Martha McSally Defends Senate’s Failure To Work For Arizonans: “Whatever.”
Asked about the GOP-controlled Senate’s lack of legislative accomplishments, Martha McSally replied, “OK, whatever.”
PHOENIX — “OK, whatever.” That was U.S. Sen. Martha McSally‘s reply when asked about criticism that the Mitch McConnell-led and Republican-controlled Senate isn’t getting things done for working families and is instead hyper-focused on giving lifetime appointments to President Trump’s anti-health care judges, the likes of which McSally keeps voting to confirm.
The McConnell-McSally Senate isn’t getting things done for Arizonans:
Republicans have failed to take up House of Representatives-passed
legislation to address rising health care costs and prescription drug pricing.
Republicans have failed to take up the House-passed “For the People Act” — a package of anti-corruption measures that would strengthen the democratic process, take on corporate special interests, and reduce the influence of money in politics; and,
Republicans have failed to put forward a broad, bipartisan infrastructure package that could mean large-scale investment in Arizona’s economy and good-paying jobs for Arizona working families.
- McSally has refused to stand up for Arizona and oppose national Republicans’ ongoing lawsuit to strike down federal protections for Arizonans with pre-existing conditions.
- McSally and Republicans passed their 2017 tax law, which is making corporate CEOs richer than ever, while shifting the tax burden from corporations to hardworking families; and,
- McSally has regularly voted to give lifetime appointments to anti-health care judges.
