Jeffries appeared on This Week on Sunday, saying a bill drafted by a bipartisan group of senators is not dead on arrival, as House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has suggested.
“How can a bill be dead on arrival, and extreme MAGA Republicans in the House haven’t even seen the text?” Jeffries said. “House Republicans, at this point, are wholly owned subsidiaries of Donald Trump. They’re not working to find real solutions for the American people. They are following orders from the former president. That’s the height of irresponsibility. That’s what the American people dislike about Washington, D.C., at this moment.”
