Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada's First District released the following statement in opposition to the passage of H.J. Resolution 59, Continuing Appropriations Resolution that extends the devastating sequester cuts, defunds the Affordable Care Act, and lays out the groundwork for defaulting on the national debt.
"With just days remaining before the end of the fiscal year, Republicans continue to put politics ahead of the economy by risking a government shutdown for the sake of their flawed ideological principles. This continuing resolution is not a real plan to fund the government; it is a destructive attempt to deny health care to those who need it the most. It's time for Republicans to get serious, stop playing political games, and finally start working for the American people."
