Congressman Rohrabacher's Statement on the Defeat of H.R. 3722

May 19, 2004

Washington, May 19, 2004 - (Washington, D.C.) "H.R. 3722 was defeated by an unholy alliance between big business and left-wing activists. These powerful groups, who do not have the best interests of the country or the American taxpayer at heart, were able to overwhelm Congress with mis-information about my bill. Unfortunately, a significant number of Congressmen succumbed to this propaganda and voted against H.R. 3722.

"I hope every citizen of this country uses the vote on H.R. 3722 to determine whether their representative has defended the good of their constituents against powerful special interest groups.

"The American taxpayer, however, may rest assured, that this legislation will live to fight another day."
