Larson: House Republicans Risk Shutdown for Political Gain

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John B. Larson released the following statement today after House Republicans voted to send a Continuing Resolution that threatens healthcare for millions of Americans to the U.S. Senate with less than four hours left to avoid a federal government shutdown:

"I am disappointed tonight that House Republican leadership continues to play hostage politics with our economy and move towards a government shutdown. It is truly a shame that our economic certainty has taken a back seat to ideology tonight in Congress.

"House Democrats' attempt tonight for a clean vote to fund the government was blocked. The Republican-controlled House has now tried 44 times to defund, postpone or stop the Affordable Care Act, and has demonstrated a cavalier willingness to shut down the government for pure political posturing.

"I continue to call on every Member to work together to avoid this shutdown and do what is in the best interests of the American people."
