As you know by now, in the final hour of negotiations, House Democrats overwhelmingly voted to avoid what felt like an inevitable government shutdown, continuing the government's funding through November 17. Only 60% of Republicans supported the measure.
But we’re not out of the woods. Because MAGA Republicans spent the month leading up to the October 1st deadline wasting time with distraction after distraction, we could only pass a continuing resolution that gave us another 45 days to pass the budget.
Now, we’re down to 38. And House Republicans are more dysfunctional than ever – they even ousted their own speaker for acting with Democrats to keep the government open.
Our government has a duty to work together and pass legislation that supports our constituents. I can tell you firsthand that House Democrats are laser-focused on what matters most – like ensuring Social Security, Medicare, and FEMA are fully funded.
Support my re-election campaign and my work to take back the House in 2024 to ensure these vital services stay off the chopping block.
Democrats will do everything possible to find bipartisan solutions and fund the government by November 15.
But our country cannot take another term with this disorganized leadership.
