Bolster Re-Appointed Minority Leader; Disappointed in GOP
Washington, DC -- This week Senator Markus Bolster (D-NY) was re-appointed as the Senate Minority Leader. In congress the GOP sets to quickly pass legislation through the Senate without bipartisan support and without consolidation of the Democrats. In remarks the Minority Leader stated that "passing policy without bipartisan support is bad for governing," he stated. "The GOP is also trying to rush numerous pieces of legislation through the Senate without having substantial support or input from the Democrats." Senator Bolster pointed to the Concealed Carry legislation which Senate Republicans took to the floor to pass by unanimous consent. "This legislation has detrimental affects to our nation's gun laws and the safety of the people of this nation," he stated. He continued by expressing concern with allowing legislation with great impact just pass the Senate. "This is not how government works, legislation that has a large impact on the American people should never swiftly move through congress without heavy scrutiny."
