(Washington, D.C) – U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement on Congressional Republicans and President Trump shutting down the federal government:

“The Trump Shutdown is a reckless refusal to responsibly govern by a Republican party that controls both Houses of Congress and the White House, and fittingly arrives on the one year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration, putting his destructive and chaotic lack of leadership in sharp focus. This total budget failure threatens public health, stymies our economy, wastes military resources and blocks basic investments in research and services in our communities. It’s no surprise that a party focused on tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy produces an irresponsible month-to-month budget that neglects broad Americans priorities, such as children’s health care, pension protection and defending DREAMers. Governing by dividing doesn’t work. Let’s end this Trump Shutdown, work together and focus on bipartisan progress. Americans deserve much better than this.”
