Dem compares House transportation bill failure to 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'

Larsen is a member of the House's Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

He criticized the House GOP for holding multiple votes on health care before canceling the vote on transportation and housing funding that was planned on Thursday, even as he said the bill Republicans were planning to bring to the floor was bad for the country.

"“Really? Republicans can vote 40 times to repeal Obamacare, but when it comes to actually governing they can’t find the votes for their own transportation bill," he said. “In this divided Congress, the only way Republicans can pass legislation is by coming across the aisle and working with Democrats. We’re ready to work.”
