Congresswoman Susan Davis Statement on the Republican/Trump Shutdown
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) released the following statement on the Republican/Trump Shutdown.
“Running the government month by month causes long-standing harm to people and our security. Republicans had plenty of time to pass budget legislation and address critical issues facing the country, such as DACA, disaster relief, CHIP funding, community health centers, and the opioid crisis. National security and taking care of Dreamers has always had bipartisan support but the President couldn’t get to yes. A government shutdown was not inevitable but you have to care that government works for the people.”
