DNC Response to Boehner’s Comments Blaming the President for the Border Crisis Washington, D.C. – The following is a reaction from DNC Director of Hispanic Media, Pili Tobar to Speaker Boehner’s comments blaming the President for the border crisis:
“It’s laughable that Speaker Boehner is trying to blame the President for this crisis, when in the 3 ½ years that Boehner has been Speaker, Republicans haven’t passed one serious piece of legislation to address immigration, leaving President Obama no option but to deal with these important issues on his own.

The truth is, if Republicans would have done their job and passed a bill, we’d be better equipped to deal with this crisis.”

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on Senate GOP Blocking Not My Boss’ Business Act Washington, DC – After Senate Republicans rejected the Not My Boss’ Business Act, a bill to combat the Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:
“It is shameful that Senate Republicans have blocked the Not My Boss’ Business Act that would have combatted the Supreme Court’s misguided decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. This bill would have prevented companies from discriminating against their women employees by forcing them to pay out of pocket for contraception, a basic preventive health care service.
“Today’s vote is another example of the clear contrast between the priorities of Republicans and Democrats. Republicans voted today to take money out of the pockets of women workers, hurting their ability to provide for their family and to access essential health services.
