U.S. Rep Andrew Clyde, R-GA, led 65 House Republican colleagues in demanding that the Department of Veterans Affairs apologize and take down a press release that claims the GOP’s debt limit bill would harm military veterans.

Dozens of House Republicans joined Clyde’s efforts, including Georgia delegation members, Rep. Rick Allen, Rep. Drew Ferguson, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Rep. Barry Loudermilk and Rep. Rich McCormick.
