Rep. Aguilar Statement on the Election of Reps. Joe Neguse, Veronica Escobar, Dean Phillips and Lauren Underwood as Chair and Co-Chairs of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC)
WASHINGTON, DC —Rep. Aguilar, released the following statement on the election of Reps. Joe Neguse, Veronica Escobar, Dean Phillips and Lauren Underwood as Chair and Co-Chairs of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC):
“I want to congratulate my colleagues on their elections to the DPCC. House Republicans are ramping up an extremist agenda with plans to use their threadbare majority to impose a national abortion ban, slash Medicare benefits and hand out deeply unpopular tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas on the backs of the middle class. It’s more important than ever that House Democrats communicate our priorities and our values to the American people: lower costs, better paying jobs and safer communities. I look forward to working alongside these talented members as our caucus articulates a positive agenda and continues to put People Over Politics.
“I also want to acknowledge Reps. Espaillat, Houlahan, Wild and Williams for their leadership and the substantive campaigns they ran. In order to be successful in this period of transition and change, I know they will play an important role in our Caucus.”
