Sinema, Bipartisan Freshman United Solutions Caucus Issues Statement Endorsing Reid/McConnell Plan

Today, 16 Members of the bipartisan, freshman United Solutions Caucus released the following statement in support of the Reid/McConnell plan to end the government shutdown and avoid default. Since the shutdown began, the United Solutions Caucus has met almost every day to engage in bipartisan discussions on possible solutions to the crisis:

We the undersigned, as Members of the bipartisan United Solutions Caucus, endorse the plan announced today by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and urge it come to the House Floor expeditiously.

The United Solutions Caucus is composed of first-term Members of both parties, determined to work together across the aisle to solve problems. During the current crisis we have kept these lines of communication open and discussed possible ways forward.

The legislation announced by Majority Leader Reid and Minority Leader McConnell is supported by both Democrats and Republicans, and it would end the current crisis. No legislation can be all things to all people, but we cannot let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Passing this bill today also will not stop the honest debate between Members of Congress about important budgetary issues.

Therefore, it is in everyone's best interest for the legislation authored by Majority Leader Reid and Minority Leader McConnell to come to the House Floor without delay. Let the House work its will and provide our country an opportunity to move forward.
