Dem Rep. Himes Compares Recession & Jan. 6 Riot: ‘I Do Not Believe that Our Democracy Can Sustain … Another Recession’

‘I do not believe that our democracy can sustain either runaway inflation or another recession’

EXCERPT:

HIMES: “As one of the last members of Congress to get out of the chamber when it was under attack on January 6, 2021, I don't believe that our democracy can sustain either runaway inflation or another recession. And despite the rhetoric that you'll hear all day today here there is not a lot that we can or will do. Much of this rests on your shoulders. So, Chairman Powell, I just ask that as you make your decisions you think not just of the numbers and the economics, but of the importance of sustaining this nation’s democracy.”
