WASHINGTON, D.C. –  U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) today released the following statement on H.R. 1, the For the People Act of 2019:

Instead of counting ballots from the Capitol, the new House majority should be counting the number of people who will be hurt by their policies that will cost $600,000 per household and  make private health insurance illegal.”

Additionally, today Walker released a mock campaign ad highlighting how the legislation would force taxpayers to pay for campaign ads:
