Durham, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement today in response to a full day of political games by House Democrats:

“Coming into today’s session, House Democrats put more energy into manufacturing outrage and refusing to work with us than help put together a rule-compliant session. However they still showed up with their frivolous and circus-like political games. They claimed our session was unsafe and put them at risk, yet the Democrats offered numerous floor amendments to House Rules, keeping us here much longer than we needed to be.”

“The rule amendments offered today were unnecessary, premature, vague, and solved no problems. They sought to tie the hands of committee chairman in the course of running their own committees, dictate the number of members they receive on a committee, and force trainings on members when a vast majority of our caucus completed it in the last week. I guess it holds true that Democrats have never seen a mandate they don’t love. Republicans came into the day with solutions. We saw no solutions from Democrats today, just more obstruction and more of the same.“ 

“House Republicans are undeterred by these political games and I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass expanded school choice policies, lower business taxes, and advance personal liberty.”
