Rep. Friske Joins Freedom Caucus
Rep. Neil Friske, MI-107, has been sworn in and become an active participant in the Michigan Freedom Caucus!
The MFC has eight members, and they all voted "no" to Rep. Joe Tate, a Detroit Democrat, becoming Speaker of the House. Unfortunately the eight paid a price for their principled position - they were given few or no committee assignments. Neil will serve on only the Families, Children, and Seniors Committee. He wanted a spot on Appropriations.
"I feel completely disrespected that my voice has been actively diminished due to the Democratic-majority choosing partisanship over collaboration," Friske stated.
We appreciate Rep. Friske's principled vote and wonder why all those other House Republicans voted for the Democrat?
