Washington — A moderate Democratic member of the Supreme House of Representatives said that after the capitol building is besieged, Republicans must lose power to protect national security and democracy. This is the clear tone of a coalition leader known for working across parties.
Florida Rep. Stephanie Murphy is the co-chair of the Blue Dog Coalition, which seeks common ground on issues such as government funding, healthcare, and immigration, rather than conflicts with Republicans . However, to further show that the cooperative channel is being tested, Murphy filed a severe prosecution against her Republican colleagues in extensive interviews.
Murphy questioned the Republican Party’s commitment to democracy and said that the party is increasingly being defined by “conspiracy theories” rather than conservative policies. She cited the votes of the Republican majority in the House of Representatives to prevent the election of President Joe Biden in key states on the night of the congressional riot on January 6, including the majority who defeated the Blue Dog members.
Murphy told NBC News: “It emphasized to me that our political obligation is now a national security obligation.”
She accused Republicans of “doubling down on lying and causing violence that resulted in the deaths of law enforcement and other personnel.”
The radical overthrow campaign highlighted the attack on the Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump and its aftermath, straining relations between the two parties as newly authorized Democrats pushed for a gradual agenda, while the Republicans sought Ways to regain power.
42-year-old Murphy is the first Vietnamese-American woman to serve in Congress. She cited her family experience of escaping a country ruled by the Communist Party when she was 6 months old, and her national security background working at the Pentagon. She believed that democracy The system is fragile.
“The Democratic majority is not just our policy of helping the American people. It is also about maintaining our democracy.” She said. They continue to create space for conspiracy theorists. I don’t know how you can formulate common-sense policies and laws to help the American people while you live on your own land. “
Murphy represents a divided area near Orlando. She does not exclude the Senate from running for the Senate in 2022. Republican Senator Marco Rubio will face re-election, although she said her current focus is elsewhere.
Murphy said: “I am really focused on work and serving the community.” “Of course, there will be some time in the future, I hope you will know that I share my experience of winning in a region that reflects the state more broadly. Not now. Now, I am really focused on trying to get the next Covid bill through the finish line.”
Moderate “intentional police” deficit spending
Despite her strong criticism of Republicans, Murphy’s modest policy instincts remain intact.
She did not say how she will vote on the progressive immigration bill announced by her party last week, explaining that she is still reviewing it. She expressed doubts about the wisdom of raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour in the Covid-19 Act, worrying that this might cause controversy and slow down the pace. She said that after the relief package is passed, Democrats must regain their awareness of deficits.
She said that after the passage of the Covid-19 relief bill, the 18-member Moderate House of Representatives will be reluctant to continue to increase the country’s deficit, a move that will surely anger progressive Democrats. She said that the House of Representatives rules allow for deficit relief in response to emergencies and climate change.
“Those are small exceptions,” Murphy said. “Blue Dog has indicated to the leadership that we intend to monitor those exceptions to ensure that they are not abused.”
The Blue Dog Alliance has many members, and Republicans believe that they have the strongest ability to defeat their opponents in the 2022 election. Their survival may be decisive in the struggle for control of the House of Representatives, because the Democratic Party has very few voters and has faced historical resistance during the two years in power.
Murphy said that in the event that Democrats lose 63 seats in the first midterm elections of President Barack Obama, the way to avoid another 2010-style failure is to “on the board as much as possible” Bonus points.”
She said: “This means focusing on legislation that can pass the Senate and become law.” This is a subtle warning to progressives: “Sometimes our passionate prosperity overwhelms our pragmatic attitude. We need to Show the American people that we can govern and improve their lives. Sometimes this means incremental changes.”
