Adams Condemns Irresponsible Government Shut Down
Washington, D.C.--Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) issued the following statement on the Republican majority’s second government shutdown in five years:
“President Trump has led his party and our nation into a dangerous tailspin,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Republicans in the House, Senate, and the White House have failed at their most basic responsibility: keeping government open. Instead of working on a long term budget that addresses our needs, they’ve wasted a year relitigating healthcare and crafting a lopsided tax scam.
“The President said ‘we need a good government shut down’ but he’s wrong. Shut downs leave our economy weaker and less secure. Its time Republicans do their jobs and work with Democrats to protect DREAMers, fully fund CHIP and community health centers, ensure critical resources for the VA, and pass a long term funding solution. Our nation cannot afford this reckless leadership.”
