The GOP Owes Americans Some Serious Answers

As Republicans head back home for August recess, they must answer to voters why they voted to side with China and Big Pharma and against the American people. 

Why did Senate Republicans block a $35 monthly cap on out-of-pocket insulin costs for Americans on private insurance when they know that millions rely on this life-saving drug? 

Washington Post: “Republicans block cap on insulin costs for millions of patients”

How can 41 Senate Republicans justify the fact that they stalled the PACT Act — which will expand health care access for combat veterans — for the sake of their cheap political games? 

POLITICO: “Mere hours after Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin announced a climate and tax deal, the Senate failed to advance burn pits legislation to help veterans.”

Why did a majority of Senate Republicans vote against the CHIPS and Science Act — historic legislation that will help tackle inflation and bring manufacturing jobs back to American soil? 

Let’s be clear: By opposing the CHIPS Act, the PACT Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act, congressional Republicans voted against common-sense legislation that would bring American manufacturing jobs back home, expand veterans’ health care, and lower prescription drug costs. The GOP owes the American people some serious answers.
