Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - "#SchumerShutdown apparently long planned: November 2017: Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.)…said he is encouraging his colleagues to join him in blocking spending legislation if the legal status of "dreamers' isn't resolved"
Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - "The clock is ticking on the #SchumerShutdown. How long will Senate Democrats let this go on before joining Republicans on funding for the 9 million children on CHIP and our military?"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "Another casualty of D's foot dragging is disaster relief for the victims of #HurricaneHarvey #HurricaneMaria and the wild fires out West. It is clear their priorities are not disaster relief, the military and their families, or Children's Health Insurance. #ShumerShutdown"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "#ShumerShutdown guarantees more not less continuing spending resolutions His crocodile tears for military a transparent attempt to deflect from fact he and Ds prioritize debate about illegal immigration over funding the military and the Children's Health Insurance program"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "Tonight, Senate Democrats made the choice to strip funding from the Children's Health Insurance Program and deny our troops the support they deserve through the #SchumerShutdown. This is reckless, irresponsible, and wrong."
Jan. 14, 2018 Tweet - "House just passed the CR, 230-197, including 6 year extension for the Children's Health Care program. Will Senate Ds really shut down government over DACA? #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 11, 2018 Tweet - "AAF: The #TaxCutAndJobsAct was one step forward. NAFTA withdrawal would be one step back. Why?"
Jan. 5, 2018 Tweet - "Why do Senate Ds slow walk disaster relief (for Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas and the West) plus defense needs in order to force a DACA deal? We are negotiating in good faith on DACA and will beat the deadline if Ds do so as well; no need to abandon USG's other responsibilities."
Jan. 4, 2018 Cheers to a New Year and a New Tax Code
Jan. 4, 2018 Tweet - "AAF: It is now clear that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) will frame the politics of choosing the policy agenda for 2018 and beyond. The attacks by progressives are also already clear; they will argue that TCJA is the source of budget deficits and rising debt. This is nonsense"
