Dr. Ruiz Statement on Senate Passage of Bill to Fund the Government

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert) issued the following statement in response to the Senate passage of legislation to fund the government:

"The Senate has now passed a budget that would prevent a government shutdown and ensure that our recovering economy continues to grow, our troops in combat continue to receive pay, and our veterans and seniors continue to receive critical benefits they earned.

"I urge House leaders to stop holding the budget hostage to promote their political agendas, and instead bring this bill to the floor for an immediate vote. While it is not a perfect bill, I support it as a reasonable, common sense solution to prevent a government shutdown and keep our commitments to our seniors, troops, and veterans.

We need to put people above partisanship and solutions above ideology. I stand ready to work with my colleagues in both political parties toward that end."
