MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting on the Election of Rep. Elise Stefanik as GOP Conference Chair

WASHINGTON -

Today, Rahna Epting, the executive director of MoveOn, released the following statement on the election of Rep. Elise Stefanik as the GOP’s number three leader:

“Republicans have proven yet again this week what many of us have been saying for some time: they are not a serious governing party and shouldn’t be treated as one. They are not pursuing policies or solutions for our nation’s challenges, instead choosing to double down on Trumpism, obstructionism, misinformation, lies and anti-democratic values. Now more than ever, we need leaders in Washington who are committed to addressing longstanding societal inequities by putting people first and fundamentally reimagining the economy. It is clear that Republicans are more interested in lying about the last election and planning to undermine the next one, than doing anything close to that. The Biden Administration must continue to move forward to put the necessary safeguards in place to defend our democracy, and pass the American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan —and not allow the GOP to play games and continue delaying the solutions we desperately need.”
