REP LIEU STATEMENT ON GOP GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after Republicans failed to fund the government before the deadline.
“Trump—despite his crassness, lack of experience governing and showboating—was supposed to be our dealmaker-in-chief. Instead, he rejected a bipartisan deal on DACA and has refused to ensure our military has the long-term certainty of an actual budget. We have a Republican House, Senate and White House and yet they can’t govern. It’s time they stop using our hallowed institutions as a political pawn.”
