DNC Chair Rep. Wasserman Schultz on GOP’s New Shutdown Threat

Washington, DC – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on the GOP’s New Shutdown Threat:

“We now have it confirmed – electing a Republican Senate majority would put us back on the road to another shutdown. It’s been a year since Republicans shut down the government and brought us to the brink of default, costing our economy $24 billion and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has said the GOP is ready to do it all over again.

“Instead of joining with Democrats to expand opportunity for all Americans by fighting for equal pay and a raise for millions of Americans, investing in infrastructure and education, and creating jobs, Republicans have recommitted to digging in their heels and causing rampant dysfunction that hurts middle class families.

“That’s the choice voters face in every race this November.”
