ICYMI: Democrats Will Pay At Polls For Shutting Down The Government

Democrats will pay at polls for shutting down the government
The Hill

"Last night, Senate Democrats shut down the United States government. They recklessly chose to jeopardize paychecks for our troops and border patrolmen to appease their far-left base. In triggering a totally unnecessary, easily avoidable shutdown, they put at stake the health insurance of 9 million vulnerable children and a number of other critical programs, including veterans’ services and opioid treatment programs.

"Republicans offered an easy fix: a short-term funding bill that President Trump would sign. This bill was bipartisan, non-controversial, and included legislative components that Democrats have long supported and even championed. It was a no-brainer. Yet, Democrats chose to hold government funding hostage because of partisan games. It’s infuriating, petty, and the American people deserve better from their elected officials.


"Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and his Democrat colleagues own this shutdown. The American people are very well aware that the Schumer shutdown rests squarely on Democrats’ shoulders. Their hypocrisy is on full display, as the same Democrats who once warned of the consequences of a shutdown eagerly embraced it this go round.


"Millions of Americans have watched Democrats resist and obstruct President Trump at every move, refusing to work with Republicans to find real solutions for the country. Millions of Americans are watching them put politics above people, time and again – and they will be watching Congress this weekend to see what their elected officials do to mitigate a wholly unnecessary crisis. For the Democrats who choose once again to jeopardize government funding, November is going to be a wake-up call."
