Pelosi: House GOP ‘Ineptitude in Legislating’ Endangering Country

Posted February 27, 2015 at 11:37am

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi shot back at House Republicans Friday for proposing a three-week continuing resolution to fund the Department of Homeland Security, saying Democrats would not go to conference on a bill containing riders blocking President Barack Obama’s immigration executive orders, and adding that House Republicans’ “ineptitude in legislation is endangering our entire country.”

“A clean, long-term Department of Homeland Security bill is clearly the only way to avert this crisis,” Pelosi said. “We should be voting to pass a clean, long-term Department of Homeland Security bill that the Senate is sending us today. They have done their work. We should do ours.”
