BREAKING: 187 House Republicans Choose Big Pharma Over the American People
July 28, 2022
187 House Republicans just voted to hold American jobs hostage and side with China because they are opposed to lowering prescription drug costs. Let’s be clear: By opposing the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act, a majority of House Republicans chose China and Big Pharma over the American people.
These 187 MAGA Republicans joined 32 of their Senate colleagues in opposing a popular, bipartisan bill that is designed to bring manufacturing jobs back home and lower costs for hardworking American families. Make no mistake: Blocking job-creating legislation is the Republican party line.
Washington Post: “[The CHIPS Act] would provide $52 billion in subsidies to domestic semiconductor manufacturers… in a bid to strengthen the United States’ competitiveness and self-reliance in what is seen as a keystone industry for economic and national security.”
Congressional Republicans can’t message their way out of this — they have made it crystal-clear that they are more than willing to sacrifice American jobs and livelihoods for a cheap political stunt. The American people simply cannot afford this out-of-touch MAGA agenda.
