Following the ouster of House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Vice President Joe Biden said Democrats and Republicans remain committed to working together in a bipartisan manner to find solutions to the nation’s challenges.
“Democratic and Republican leaders have committed to finding common ground on the issues that matter most to the American people – from rebuilding our economy to lowering the cost of health care to addressing the urgent threat of climate change,” said Biden in a statement.
Biden said that “despite our differences,” he believed that “Democrats and Republicans can still come together to address the challenges confronting our country.”
He urged the two sides to “build on the progress made in recent years and enact bipartisan solutions that will strengthen our democracy and our economy.”
The vice president said the country should “be united in our desire to get things done for the American people” and expressed optimism about the possibility of finding solutions in a bipartisan way.
“I believe that together, we can move our nation forward and ensure that the American people have the support they need to succeed,” he said.
