Rep. Roy issued the following statement regarding his vote in favor of H.Res. 12 Tuesday afternoon:
I am proud to support the creation of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. This Subcommittee will be critical for providing oversight and accountability against a federal government that has been brazenly and unashamedly turned against the people it is supposed to serve.
Every American should shudder at the power the federal government has used against parents for daring to stand up for their children, Christian organizations for following their faith, pro-life Americans, and those who dare to raise questions about the public health authority that was used to end livelihoods during the COVID-19 pandemic, among other issues.
The American people deserve answers to the myriad questions resulting from the blatant disregard of American’s rights and freedoms by their own government. This subcommittee will not be afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead and expose the weaponization of the federal government.
