AFP Action Urges New and Returning Lawmakers to Find Common Ground on Important Issues

Arlington, VA – Following tonight’s midterm elections, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) Action ℠ Senior Advisor Tim Phillips issued the following statement:

“Over the course of the midterm elections, AFP Action was proud to support candidates who championed policies to improve the lives of the American people. We congratulate them on their hard-fought campaigns, and we hope that the important conversations on the campaign trail will translate to progress in upcoming legislative sessions.

“As the campaign season ends, and lawmakers make plans for new legislative sessions that will begin early next year, we look forward to continuing to build broad coalitions at both the state and federal level to find common ground, and unite to break down barriers that prevent Americans from achieving their dreams and leading fulfilling lives.

“Leaders in Washington and in the states can quickly repair divides in our country by breaking the cycle of partisan politics that has delayed progress on issues critical to the wellbeing of the American people. There are a number of issues that have already earned broad bipartisan support and can serve as a catalyst for a new tone for our public discourse – specifically, righting the wrongs of our criminal justice system, finding a permanent solution for Dreamers, and eliminating corporate welfare that is rigging the system against hardworking taxpayers.”
