DCCC Launches ShutdownBrokenPromises.com
With Congress working only 10 more days before funding for the government runs out, House Republicans seem to be going with a “just trust us” strategy, claiming that they don’t want to shut down the government – but without committing to a specific plan to keep the government open.
A year ago, House Republicans promised they would take shutdown off the table. We saw how that worked out, and the DCCC is launching http://shutdownbrokenpromises.com to take a trip down memory lane to see what House Republicans were saying at this point in 2013. The site will be updated each day with promises Republicans made not to shut down the government exactly a year. The American people won’t make the mistake again of trusting this Republican Congress to do the right thing and quickly take shutdown off the table, preventing weeks of unnecessary worry and uncertainty. It’s time for real action, not just empty rhetoric.
