Rogers on Swearing-in of the 115th Congress
Washington, DC, January 3, 2017
Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today after the official swearing-in of the 115th Congress.
“I am excited to work with my colleagues in the House of Representatives in the new 115th Congress. With President-elect Donald J. Trump coming into office later this month, we have the exciting opportunity to shape an agenda that repeals Obamacare, cuts regulations, provides real tax relief for hard working families, and protects the rights of the unborn.” Rogers said.
Rogers’ first act in the 115th Congress was to reintroduce his bill, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017, which would end the United States’ involvement in the United Nations.
“The U.N. has attempted a number of actions which aimed to encroach on the rights granted to U.S. citizens under our Constitution. Most recently, the UN Security Council sided with Palestine and passed a resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in Jerusalem. Attacks against one of the United States’ greatest allies are just the most recent chapter in the UN’s dangerous agenda. I believe our involvement in the UN is a waste of taxpayer dollars,” Rogers said.
