House Republican Leaders' "to Don't" List

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. DEUTCH. Mr. Speaker, a new NBC poll says that 83 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing. But that shouldn't be surprising when we are not doing any job at all.

House Republican leaders are working off of a ``to don't'' list: don't pass gun violence legislation that could save lives; don't pass equal pay for women that could boost family incomes; don't help homeowners refinance, which could save families money; don't pass immigration reform that could grow our economy; don't create a national infrastructure bank that could create new jobs; and don't pass a green energy bill that could finally tackle climate change.

It doesn't have to be this way, but when your agenda is to do nothing, it's easy to get nothing done when you operate off of a ``to don't'' list. Solving problems and reaching compromise may be hard work, but it's the work the American people sent us here to do.
