WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 6, 2021) - MBA President and CEO Bob Broeksmit, CMB, issued the following statement regarding the violence that occurred today at the U.S. Capitol:

"MBA condemns the vicious, lawless mob that descended on the U.S. Capitol today and wreaked havoc on our democratic process. Their actions were abhorrent and not representative of the ideals and character of America. The United States' democracy is the model for the world; those who deliberately undermine or disrespect it, or who fail to protect it, should be ashamed.   

"We are calling for an immediate peaceful end to today's assault on our democracy. The world is watching, and nothing can deter us from completing this peaceful transfer of power.  

"MBA looks forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration and new Congress in the weeks and months ahead."
