Impeachment Charade Hurts American Families

A few weeks ago, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives was opening an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. The Left has been dead set on impeaching the president since the day he was elected despite the fact there is no evidence he committed any high crimes or misdemeanors. Now they’re running a sham investigation behind closed doors to undo the results of the 2016 election.

This impeachment inquiry has been a disgrace to our legislative process and the American people are the ones who will suffer the consequences. Not only is it further dividing our country, it’s also preventing Congress from tackling issues that actually affect families across the country.

President Trump promised and delivered a better trade deal with our North American trading partners. The United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA), which is a renegotiation of the outdated NAFTA, is good for American farmers, ranchers, workers, manufacturers, and businesses. This is a huge opportunity to put the United States on a level playing field with our neighbors. Mexico has ratified the agreement and Canada has said they will ratify it, but Pelosi Democrats have been too caught up in impeachment proceedings to give it a vote on the House Floor.

Americans also want solutions to address surprise medical billing and the cost of prescription drugs. Republicans have worked in good faith to find a bipartisan agreement that could actually get signed into law, but the Democratic Caucus has rejected those proposals because they have been singularly focused on impeachment and furthering their failed socialist agenda.

In FY 2019, there were 811,016 apprehensions at our southern border. That’s more than double the number of apprehensions in FY 2018. Instead of finding a solution to address our broken immigration system, the Judiciary Committee is pursuing baseless impeachment investigations.

The longer this witch hunt goes on, the longer the American people have to wait for solutions to problems they face every day. Our country deserves better than this ridiculous charade.
