Hagan Comments On Senate-Passed Bill To End Government Shutdown And Avert A Default Crisis


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Kay Hagan released the following statement after the Senate passed a bipartisan plan to end the government shutdown and avert a default crisis:

"This government shutdown was completely unnecessary. Congress should have never gotten to the point where the government was shut down and on the verge of a default crisis, and no one should attempt to take a victory lap after tonight's vote. However, I am glad the Senate passed a bipartisan plan to re-open the government and avert a default crisis that would be disastrous for our economy and our middle class families. I wasn't elected to shut down the government or play political games, and it's time for Congress to stop manufacturing crises and get to work on a long-term, bipartisan and balanced plan to get our fiscal house in order, grow our economy and give certainty to families and business owners."
