Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada's First District released the following statement in opposition to the House Republican's Continuing Resolution:
"Holding our government hostage to further an extreme agenda is not responsible governance; it is childish obstructionism. Unfortunately, manufacturing a crisis has become the new normal for the Republican Party.
"If the government shuts down, it's the American people who will have to pay the price for the Republicans' reckless, political games. It will create unnecessary uncertainty for businesses, hurt our economy, and undermine the confidence of Americans, all for the purpose of preventing millions of uninsured Americans from accessing health coverage.
"The Affordable Care Act was enacted by Congress, signed into law by the President, upheld by the Supreme Court, and most importantly, it has already helped millions of Americans access affordable, quality health care. But Republicans are so out of touch with reality that they would rather risk a government shutdown then put aside their obsessive disdain for health reform.
"Americans are fed up with the political obstructionism and dysfunction that have led our country to the brink of a government shutdown. Republicans should start listening to the American people and get to work on a real budget solution."
