Senator Donnelly had some contradictory remarks about the #SchumerShutdown this evening, to say the least:
1.Donnelly called DACA a “partisan political idea,” but then called for the passage of DACA.
2.Donnelly said he worked on both sides of the aisle to end the #SchumerShutdown because they focused on what was right for the country and not worrying about partisan political ideas, but he still votes with Schumer 86% of the time.
3.Donnelly takes credit for ending the #SchumerShutdown, but we all know it actually ended because Senate Democrats caved on including DACA in the CR.
“Senator Joe Donnelly’s comments about the end of the Schumer shutdown proves that America’s least effective Democrat is only capable of talking out of both sides of his mouth. Unfortunately for Hoosiers, Senator Donnelly is clearly more concerned about his own political survival than Hoosier values or condemning Chuck Schumer for his pointless 3-day government shutdown. November cannot come fast enough to replace Do-Nothing Donnelly with a Republican Senator who will actually stand up for Hoosiers when it matters.” –RNC Spokesperson Michael Joyce
