WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Ca.) comments blaming the House Freedom Caucus for the House GOP’s midterm defeat, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
Republicans are one broken promise away from losing the House this November. If this happens, Americans can wave goodbye to the dream of “draining the swamp.” If the conservative base loses faith in a Congress led by Republicans, what few legislative victories Republicans managed to achieve will end. The bold agenda undertaken by President Trump will get bogged down by obstructionism from House Democrats. Divided government will once again rear its ugly head.
