McSally Defends Senate’s Failure To Work For Arizonans: “Whatever.”

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’s “OK, whatever” indifference on tackling issues important to Arizonans is all the more notable when you consider what she and her Republican colleagues have actually done:

“Arizonans deserve a Senator who will work for them, and Martha McSally’s ‘OK, whatever’ attitude proves that she’s part of a broken Washington system that’s working for powerful corporate special interests, but isn’t getting things done for hardworking Arizona families,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson.
