Washington, D.C. — Congresswoman Elise Stefanik discussed the passage of a 45-day stop-gap funding bill that keeps the government open and provides House Republicans more time to rein in reckless spending and continue delivering real results to Americans through the appropriations process.
“As we face this challenge, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, House Democrats showed zero leadership. House Republicans will continue to step up to lead. Under the leadership of our Speaker, this leadership team, but most importantly, all the members of the House Republican Conference, we get the job done and deliver on behalf of the American people, keeping the government open and, importantly, continuing the Appropriations process to be good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars. And this was despite House Democrats’ attempts to delay, to obstruct, and to even pull the fire alarm to stop this important vote from happening. We’re going to continue to stand up on behalf of the American people, and despite being underestimated every week, we see you every single week and you underestimate us. We will continue to get the job done on behalf of our constituents across America.”
