DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on Senate Passage of Bill to Reopen Government and Li

Following the Senate’s passage of bipartisan legislation to end the federal government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling to avoid default, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“I applaud the Senate for coming together in the spirit of bipartisanship to reopen the government and protect the full faith and credit of the United States. I urge my colleagues in the House to follow their example and vote in favor of the resolution.

“This is a victory of pragmatism over ideology. Compromise has won out over rigidity. I look forward to working with Members on both sides of the aisle to fully repair any damage the events of recent weeks have inflicted on the economy and the confidence Americans have in their federal government. We must avoid manufactured crises like these and get back to doing the business Americans elected us to do.”
