Regarding the Republican Continuing Resolution

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. DEUTCH asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)

Mr. DEUTCH. Mr. Speaker, this week my Republican colleagues offered us a glimpse into their vision for America. It is a country where millions of women are turned away from basic health care, where the wealthy can buy access to our courts, and the poor are denied justice, where we abandon our obligation to pass on a cleaner, safer world to the next generation, where the voices of a thousand workers' cries for better treatment fall on a few pairs of deaf ears, where we deny children the arts education that has helped inspire the greatest culture on Earth.

This is not the America envisioned by the constituents I serve, among them thousands of America's Greatest Generation who fought during World War II and built an extraordinary Nation after the Great Depression. This continuing resolution is, quite simply, a disgrace to their vision and to their sacrifice. We can do better. We must do better.
