Cloud Blasts Democrats for holding this year’s first subcommittee hearing on flea and tick collars

WASHINGTON—Economic and Consumer Policy Subcommittee Ranking Member Michael Cloud (R-Texas) today blasted Democrats for holding this year’s first subcommittee hearing on flea and tick collars instead of on historic inflation, record-breaking gas prices, out-of-stock infant formula, the surge in fentanyl overdoses, and President Biden’s border crisis. He pointed out that flea and tick management is an essential part of pet care but not an essential part of congressional oversight. Subcommittee Ranking Member Cloud concluded by calling to adjourn the hearing so the subcommittee can focus on more pressing issues facing Americans.
