HMP Statement on Republicans’ Latest Government Shutdown

February 9, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority PAC Communications Director Jeb Fain issued the following statement regarding the latest Republican government shutdown:

“Just after the 2016 election, Paul Ryan bragged, ‘Welcome to the dawn of a new unified Republican government.’ Well, we’ve seen exactly what that looks like – total dysfunction. With shutdown after shutdown, Paul Ryan and Congressional Republicans have proven they’re totally incompetent and incapable of governing. However long this shutdown lasts, it’s another total embarrassment for the GOP. Hardworking families across the country deserve far better.”
