Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement after House Democrats waited until the last day possible to temporarily fund the government. Current funding for the government expired tonight.
“House Democrats totally failed in their number one job to keep the government funded.
“It is Nancy Pelosi’s failure that brought us to the brink of a shutdown.
“Instead of discussing bipartisan spending cuts with Republicans, Pelosi and House Democrats are working feverishly to jam through the largest tax and spending increase in our nation‘s history that will hurt American families for generations to come.”
Stefanik voted no on the Continuing Resolution that would fund the government through December 3, 2021.
Last week, the House voted on a purely partisan Continuing Resolution that included the suspension of the debt ceiling, which would have allowed Democrats to write a blank check to advance their multi-trillion dollar Far-Left agenda. It failed in the U.S. Senate.
