Durbin Statement On Senate Republicans Voting Against House-Passed CR & Debt Ceiling

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) today released the following statement regarding every Senate Republican voting against the House-passed Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government and avoid catastrophic default:

“Right now, our number one priority should be keeping the nation’s economy on the path to recovery.  Instead, Republicans are playing reckless political games with the economy and the full faith and credit of the United States by refusing to pay the bill that Donald Trump helped rack up.

“This is a disastrous dine-and-dash by Congressional Republicans that America cannot afford.”
