WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel issued the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked a funding measure to keep the government open:
"Senate Democrats shutdown the government over petty political games and blind opposition to Republican efforts to pay our troops and fund health care for nine million vulnerable children. This was an unnecessary crisis created by Democrats who jeopardized funding for services for lawful American citizens and our military over an unrelated issue surrounding illegal immigration. The President and Congressional Republicans are committed to fight for the American people – it’s clear Democrats are only interested in fighting for Chuck and Nancy."
