Roskam Remarks At House GOP Stakeout

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL), Chief Deputy Whip, discussed the latest on the Continuing Resolution at the House Republican Leadership stakeout this morning. The video and transcript are below:


"This is a study in very clear contrasts. On the one hand, you have cuts that are adhering to the wisdom of the American public that was articulated in November, and on the other hand, you have defense of the status-quo.

"On the one hand, you have a clearly united Republican House Conference that says we need to take this challenge up and do it forthrightly, and on the other hand, you have ambiguity, disjointed leadership and a lack of direction.

"I mean, with all due respect to Senator Durbin, when he articulates "a line in the sand' and that they're unwilling to go [any] further, I don't even think that's a particularly serious point.

"I think it's very clear that the American public has called this Congress to do the work that they have an urgency to do. And that is to cut and to create an opportunity for job creators [to] flourish."
