Washington, DC-October 3, 2023…Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after voting against the reckless effort to oust the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy (CA-20):
Congressman Womack said, "Arkansans sent me to Washington to reverse the Biden-Pelosi agenda, secure the border, and lower costs for families-but first and foremost, to govern responsibly. This selfish action to remove the Speaker upends all our work for the American people. It is utterly irresponsible, counterproductive, and a distraction from our duty. This political ruckus coming from a handful of members is standing in the way of completing needed appropriations and continuing to advance conservative policies. It's hurtful for America, and I'm incredibly disappointed in today's result."
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas's Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
