More on Congress
Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement on the Senate recently voting to raise our debt limit. This is set to be voted on in the House Tuesday, October 12th.
Like a child changing the rules of the game when it is not going their way, this scheme to increase Supreme Court justices is just another example of the undermining of the foundations that have kept America balanced and protected. This is only motivated by a dangerous political agenda and not what is best for this nation. I hope everyone will wake up to how scary this is for our future and I hope this legislation fails miserably as it would end the Republic as we know it.

Today, I will be at the Capitol, representing everyone in South Jersey, to respectfully watch President Joe Biden take his oath as the duly-elected 46th President of the United States. Our work will once again begin anew and while we may not always agree, we must all work together to fight for a Strong America and a Strong South Jersey.
It is up to all of us to build upon our past success and write the next chapter of our uniquely and inherently American story.

WASHINGTON- Today, Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement on President-elect Biden and election integrity.
What is happening at the Capitol is unacceptable, un-American, and disrepectful of democracy. The debate many protestors have been asking for was happening today and because of these actions it was abruptly ended. Everyone has the right to peacefully protest but what happened today was not peaceful or productive. Today's debate was about the rule of law and by harming police officers, being violent, and breaking into a Federal building, the rule of law was broken. I ask that the President reach out and ask the protestors to leave the Capitol building immediately.
