GOP lawmakers on keeping campaign promises: ‘To date, we haven’t’

When asked about whether they have kept their campaign promises in the aftermath of an election that gave Republicans a majority in both the House and the Senate, GOP lawmakers said on Wednesday that they have not.

“Are we doing what we told them we were going to do last November?” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said in response to the question posed by “Like, did we stop the president’s unconstitutional executive amnesty provision?

“Are we going to stop the corporate welfare?” Jordan said. “Are we going to have a work requirement for able-bodied adults in our social safety net systems?

“All those things we told the voters we were going to do — that should be the measure,” Jordan said. “Are we accomplishing those things? To date, we haven’t, and frankly, that’s what we need to focus on.”
