McCollum Statement on Vice President Mike Pence’s Minnesota Speech
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement on Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Minnesota:
“The sunny vision of the Trump administration that Vice President Mike Pence told Minnesotans today is completely at odds with the stormy reality. In its first year in office, the Trump-Pence administration has sabotaged Americans’ health care, raised taxes on middle class Minnesotans to pay for tax giveaways to billionaires, and presided over the most corrupt White House in history. And contrary to Vice President Pence’s rhetoric, eliminating environmental safeguards and implementing bigoted, discriminatory immigration policies makes America weaker, not greater.
“Instead of the backwards Trump-Pence agenda and the Cover-Up Republican Congress, Minnesotans and Americans deserve a Congress that stands up to the President, holds this out-of-control White House accountable, and gives the American people A Better Deal than they’re getting now.”
