Blue Shield of California Executives Issue Joint Statement Lauding Electoral College and Condemning Attacks at U.S. Capitol

Congress should be congratulated for certifying the election of Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President. Yesterday’s attack on democracy, on our Constitution, and on the men and women in Congress is a disgrace. It is domestic terrorism, pure and simple. The process of choosing a government by the free votes of our citizens shall always triumph over instilling a government by intimidation, fear and violence. The United States has led the world in promoting democracy and the rule of law. Yesterday’s vote shows we will continue to lead on these important virtues with the successful confirmation of the results and a peaceful transition of power on Jan. 20.
