WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) and Subcommittee on Government Operations Ranking Member Jody Hice (R-Ga.) joined “Fox & Friends Weekend” with Pete Hegseth to discuss MLB’s attack on Georgia’s voting bill and the decision to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta, which is hurting local small businesses.
“We’re going to send a message to corporate America. We’re going to send a message to everyone who benefits from any type of tax exemptions. You’ve mentioned the antitrust exemptions that Major League Baseball enjoys. This has consequences on the taxpayers. When you move a convention or a Major League Baseball game out of a major city that’s already made plans and spent tax dollars to prepare for, it has negative consequences,” said Ranking Member Comer. “If you look at baseball, Major League Baseball has relationships with China and Cuba. There aren’t two countries in the world more oppressive than those. So, the hypocrisy is at an all-time high here with Major League Baseball. This is just a movement that has to stop.”
“They’re relying upon talking points from the radical left rather than reading the bill itself and seeing what it says. This strengthens voting in Georgia. It expands voting opportunities in Georgia. It does nothing of the things for which they are accusing Georgia and for the reason they are leaving the All-Star Game from Georgia. So, they’re just being intellectually dishonest,” said Subcommittee Ranking Member Hice.
Ranking Members Hice and Comer also voiced extreme disappointment in Joe Biden’s most recent executive order on climate change and his continued reliance on executive orders rather than legislating.
“This is something that Joe Biden continues to do. For someone who spent his whole career in the legislative branch, it’s very disappointing that he’s circumventing Congress on everything. He’s ruling by executive order, and that’s wrong. We’re going to stand up to him,” said Ranking Member Comer.
“It’s time we start pushing back. We are watching the destruction of our country through policies and through radical left-wing ideology that’s being crammed down the throats of America. And, it’s time that we start standing up. It’s time for states to start standing up, and I’m glad we and others are doing that,” said Ranking Member Hice.
