Democrats' Plan to Shut Down the Federal Government

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. BROUN of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today for one reason--to expose the Democrats' carefully designed plan to shut down the Federal Government.

This Friday, the short-term continuing resolution expires, but the Democrats have yet to offer any real solutions for our budget mess. They just want to keep on spending, taxing, and borrowing. I believe they're dodging their responsibilities on purpose.

The Democratic leadership is trying to back us into a corner with only two ways out: keep spending money at their outrageous levels or shut down the government. We are in an economic emergency, and neither of these options will do anything for America's financial crisis. I believe they actually want to shut down the government for their own political purposes.

Mr. Speaker, I implore my Democrat colleagues to do what is right for America--to get serious about cutting spending before we find ourselves so deeply mired in debt that digging out becomes impossible.
