Senator Moorlach Cautions Majority Party on the Costs of the Holder Hire

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Senator John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) provided the following statement today regarding the legislative Democrats' decision to hire former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as their next line of defense against the incoming Trump Administration.

“If the majority party continues to poke President-Elect Trump with a short stick, then they better be prepared with a Plan B. And, as far as I can tell, there is no alternative plan should these combative moves not be received well by the incoming Trump Administration.

“We cannot and must not jeopardize Federal funding to our state, counties and cities.  They cannot afford it, especially with increasing pensions costs at the door.”
