Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Republican Refusal to Reopen Government
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after House Republicans voted against considering a clean Continuing Resolution that would re-open the federal government.
“We could open the government in the next hour, if Speaker Boehner and his House Republicans would let us take a simple vote. Instead, House Republicans just doubled down on their reckless and irresponsible shutdown, blocking a vote on a commonsense solution. Republicans’ relentless protection of insurance company profits has no limits. They should be ashamed – and we demand a vote.”
