Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Titus of Nevada’s First District today spoke on the House floor in opposition to the Republicans’ “do nothing” legislative agenda. Below are her remarks: 
 
 
“With fewer than seven legislative days left in the year, the window to address the staggering list of unfinished business before the House is rapidly closing. 
 
“No Farm Bill; no long term budget; no tax reform; no ENDA; no comprehensive immigration package; and no replacement for the sequester. In fact, the GOP has continuously failed to govern and create real solutions to the pressing issues facing this country. 
 
“Over the past 11 months, Republicans have undermined the important economic progress we’ve made, disproportionately harming low-income women and children and keeping11 million undocumented immigrants in the shadows. They have gutted nutritional programs, voted to repeal health care reform 43 times, and shut down the government in a fit of pique, putting millions at economic risk.
 
“This holiday season, as Americans enjoy exchanging gifts with family and friends, I’m afraid all they are going to get from House Republicans is a lump of coal.”
