On Episode 48 of War Room: Impeachment, guest Rep. Barry Loudermilk describes the opportunity cost of impeachment, specifically the delay in passing USMCA.
It’s easy to “understand [the opportunity cost] from a USMCA perspective.”
He points out how “last week Nancy Pelosi went to the microphones and was asked about USMCA. She said “even if we came to an agreement today, there wouldn’t be enough time to get it done before the end of the year.”
Why is there “not enough time”?
For Rep. Loudermilk, it’s clearly “because we’re wasting all this time on impeachment.”
He elaborates on the Democrats prioritizing a “sham impeachment” over legislation that would “help millions of Americans”:
.@RealDonaldTrump, Speaker Pelosi just confirmed we don’t have TIME to pass #USMCA this year… USMCA will help millions of Americans, but it’s obvious she’d rather waste time with a sham impeachment. #DoNothingDems pic.twitter.com/VnBvNV8Obt

The American people “already see congress as do-nothing and now when they decide to do something they are going to impeach a president who is really popular among the American people.”
