Today, Mike Johnson officially became the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives after a whopping four elections and countless closed-door meetings.
In response, American Bridge 21st Century President Pat Dennis released the following statement:
“Mike Johnson is nothing but an anti-abortion, anti-marriage equality, election-denying extremist whose only loyalty is to Donald Trump — not the American people. We’re just weeks away from a government shutdown, and all Republicans have done is bicker amongst themselves and compete to be Trump’s most influential lackey in Congress. If Republicans truly believe that this guy is their best bet to get things done and prevent a shutdown, we’re all screwed.”
