Last quote by Charlie Dent

It's a problem we've had as a party for some time. We saw this going back to the shutdown. One year it was defunding Obamacare, the other it was Planned Parenthood, now it will be the border wall. Somebody will find a reason to say we can't fund the government unless we get 'x'. Someone always finds an issue.feedback

Charlie Dent quotes

May 02 2017 - Obamacare

There is a concern that this is going to be a model to try to placate the hard right and get these bills out of the House knowing that they have an uncertain fate in the Senate. It just further exposes members of marginal districts politically because we know darn well that the bill on the rebound from the Senate won't satisfy those on the hard right. All this political capital is being expended on the first launch knowing damn well that the only battle that matters is the last one won't get the support of those very same people.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think part of it is there is a learning curve there, no question. I think they tried to do a great deal very quickly and they haven't been properly staffed up.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - American politics

My sense is that the members of our group who were opposed to the bill before remain opposed. Nothing's changed.feedback

Apr 26 2017

It doesn't address any of the concerns I've been raising for weeks.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Immigration

What I hope he means is that we should be talking about establishing operational control. . . I'm not saying necessarily walls.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Republican Party

Same concerns, and this didn't really address them.feedback

Apr 25 2017

This remains our challenge here in the House. We've had a very difficult time performing the very basic fundamental tasks of governing.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Republican Party

It doesn't do anything to change the problems with the underlying bill.feedback

Apr 06 2017

What they were talking about was not going to get me to yes.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - American politics

It seems like there will be a little bit of a pivot right now from healthcare to something else. If they asked my opinion, I would tell them, they should pivot to infrastructure. Why? Because I think it is easier to assemble a bipartisan coalition to do infrastructure than tax reform.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Republican Party

Well, it's just another day at the office for me, I guess.feedback

Mar 26 2017 - Trumpcare

We've been here before. The only difference is now we have a Republican president and some people thought the fever might break a little bit. But apparently not.feedback

Mar 26 2017

I'm not going to deny that. I listened very respectfully to what the president had to say. But my bottom line is this: this discussion has been far too much about artificial timelines, arbitrary deadlines, all to effect the baseline on tax reform. This conversation should be more about the people whose lives are going to be impacted by our decisions on their health care.feedback

Mar 24 2017

I don't know. I've declared my opposition to the bill.feedback

Mar 23 2017

I believe this bill, in its current form, will lead to the loss of coverage and make insurance unaffordable for too many Americans.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Doing that would be a nonstarter and would be enormously and hugely problematic for many of our members.feedback

Mar 17 2017 - Trumpcare

We'll see what changes they're going to make. I'm listening.feedback

Mar 17 2017

A president only has so much political capital to expend and so much moral authority as well, and so any time your credibility takes a hit, I think in many ways it weakens the officeholder.feedback

Mar 17 2017

If I hear one more senator tell me that this bill is dead on arrival, I think my head is going to explode. That's certainly not something many members of the House find very appetizing – voting for something that will go nowhere in the Senate.feedback

Mar 16 2017

The president proposes and Congress disposes. We can't finance a defense buildup entirely on the back of domestic, nondefense spending. It's not realistic and unfair.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I remain concerned … about the impact of the Medicaid changes on vulnerable populations, as well as the overall effect of the bill on access to affordable care.feedback

Feb 16 2017

He should be talking about how we're going to be reforming healthcare. I hope he gets more focused on policy.feedback

Jan 26 2017

I'd rather not be revisiting and rehashing the election. It's over.feedback

Jan 26 2017 - Twitter

I don't control the Twitter feed.feedback

Jan 25 2017

I hope he gets more focused on policy. Crowd size doesn't matter.feedback

Jan 08 2017 - Affordable Care Act

I saw that as a flashing yellow light, like caution to not move precipitously. My own view is that Obamacare is complex and controversial enough without including Planned Parenthood provisions.feedback

May 12 2016

I would certainly talk about it.feedback

May 12 2016

A number of us are concerned about the lack of policy positions that he (Trump) has presented. The few that he has are often conflicting or contradictory. Combine that with the incendiary statements on POWs, the disabled, Muslims, Hispanics, women, it's a cause for concern.feedback

May 09 2016

When you're a candidate running for office you don't like to be in a position where you have to put distance between yourself and someone in your own party. But in this case you're compelled to do it because of the nature of these inflammatory statements.feedback
