Rep. Reed: Statement On Reopening Gov’t

January 22, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Tom Reed issued the following statement about the gov’t reopening:

“The American people rejected this shut down, knowing full well extremism is no way to run a country. Children health care, our military and countless other services Americans depend on cannot simply be shut down so extremists can make a point.

“My colleagues and I in the Problem Solvers Caucus will continue to lead bipartisanship efforts in the House to work out a long term funding solution and fix to failing immigration and border security policies. The House and Senate can only find real solutions to America’s critical issues within a culture of trust and good faith negotiations.”
