This week’s must-watch moments on Capitol Hill
This week on Capitol Hill, lawmakers responded to a racist shooting at a Buffalo, N.Y., supermarket on Saturday.
Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty (Ohio), called out Republican colleagues for harboring racist sentiment that they claim stokes extremist acts of domestic terrorism. Republicans dismissed the accusations, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) affirming “racism of any sort is abhorrent in America.”
Lawmakers continued to respond to the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that could overturn federal abortion protections and the ongoing baby formula shortage.
