Chairman Steve Israel: House Republicans Have Declared War on Themselves
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement about the House Republicans’ instructions to Members that they should spend August telling their constituents how they’re fighting Washington. Republicans want to campaign against the broken Congress – after they broke it.
“House Republicans weren’t satisfied with going to war with President Obama, Democrats or the middle class – now they’ve declared war on themselves,” said Representative Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “While House Republicans spend their time fighting themselves, House Democrats will spend our August focused on solutions for the middle class. They’ve developed a Summer of Insanity Tour; we’ll continue to pursue a Summer of Solutions.”
