Senator Donnelly this afternoon gave a speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate about the ongoing federal government shutdown and the negative impact Congress is having on the U.S. and Hoosier economies.
"It is embarrassing that the actions of some in Congress these days are now the greatest obstacle to future job creation in our country," Donnelly said.
Donnelly concluded, "At a time when Hoosiers are trying to get back to work and take care of our families, Congress' inability to work together is making it so much more difficult. Congress is not helping and is actually hindering job creation and economic growth."
"Madam President, this is no way to run a country. I stand ready to work with anyone in a common sense way out of this train wreck. We must find a way to stop hurting the economy and to actually help the people who have made this country such a great place. "
