Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District spoke on the House floor today to call for a new legislative agenda. Below are her remarks:
“This week a leading Nevada Republican said that the 2014 elections will be a 'great year for Republicans' because 'a lot of minorities, a lot of younger people will not turn out.'
“Well, while the GOP plan for 2014 is focused on voter suppression, I am here to deliver a different message. 
“Minorities and women are going to turn out in droves next year because they see what the Republican leadership is doing in Washington. 
“They see the dysfunction that the Republicans have created and are apparently so proud of. They see the Republican agenda that’s driven by extremist ideology, rather than what is best for Americans. 
“In fact, voters of all types are seeing and will see over the next few days just how out of step the House Republicans truly are. They grapple, not with the needs of Americans, but with the two wings of their own caucus—the far right and the further right. 
“We need a new agenda.”
