Following comments from House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) referring to freedom fighting Members of Congress as "right-wing Marxists" and claiming that "the Freedom Caucus is an arm of Pelosi," FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon responded:
"Calling the Freedom Caucus an ‘arm of Pelosi’ is simply absurd. If the Washington elite spent half the time attacking Democrats as they do Members willing to stand on principle, maybe we would actually get some principled leadership."
"The story now is that we need to wait for a Republican president to get anything done. But why should we believe it when that’s exactly what we were told about electing a GOP Senate? This is why our activists across the country are sorely disappointed with Congress. We need representatives to take a stand and refuse to increase the budget caps. Not bow down to everything Obama, Pelosi, and Reid want."
