WASHINGTON – David A. Sampson, president and CEO of the American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) released the following statement:
“On behalf of the U.S. property casualty insurance industry, I am horrified and saddened by the scenes of mob violence in our nation’s capital today. This has no place in America. Words matter and when leaders call for violence, violence ensues.
“As President-elect Biden said this afternoon, democracy is fragile. And make no mistake, what we witnessed this afternoon was an attack on our democratic institutions.
“Insurers support the peaceful transition of power. We are in the business of protecting American families, businesses, individuals, communities, and the larger economy. The actions taking place in Washington, D.C. today threaten the very pillars of our country.”
