Highlights

“This morning’s news about meeting the criteria of a quote-unquote technical recession wasn’t really a surprise for anybody, Republican or Democrat… I can tell you having been back home and talking to constituents, it has been a recessionary type environment for a while.” – Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) (Video: Washington Post Live)
“The notion that there was going to somehow be checkpoints across interstate lines for women who were traveling across states to seek abortions, that somehow there was going to be some sort of effort to police this or go after women, that couldn’t be further from the truth… To suggest that somehow that states were going to restrict interstate travel and punish women for traveling to get an abortion was absolutely ludicrous.” – Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) (Video: Washington Post Live)
“As a constitutional conservative, I felt that it’s really quite simple for me, yes it is settled law and if we are really going to uphold the fifth amendment and the fourteenth amendment and guarantee equal protections under the law, we need to make sure that we’re doing that across the board.” – Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) (Video: Washington Post Live)
