(Washington DC) - U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement on the government funding bill:

“The Trump shutdown resulted from the complete ineptitude of the President and the failure of Republican leaders in Congress to deliver on promises they made months ago. Instead of funding the government through a never-ending series of short-term spending bills that undermine the effective operation of our government, it’s time we move towards a sustainable solution that protects DREAMers and provides badly needed disaster relief for hurricane and wildfire victims. This fourth continuing resolution also, once more, inadequately invests in our national security and domestic priorities. In addition to ignoring the plight of the courageous young people who came here through no fault of their own, this continuing resolution fails to fund the community health centers that millions of Americans rely upon. These abdications are simply immoral – and I will continue to urge my Republican colleagues in Congress to do a better job on behalf of the American people.”
