Senator Roy Blunt: Government Shutdown Is Not The Answer

April 05, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement today regarding the ongoing budget battle in Washington and the U.S. House of Representatives’ short-term proposal to avoid a government shut-down this week:

“A government shutdown is not the answer. Senate Democrats’ unwillingness to come to the table to make real budget cuts is not a responsible solution.

“Make no mistake - we’re in this predicament because Senate Democrats abdicated their duties and failed to pass a budget last year.

“Congressman Ryan's plan puts solutions above politics and takes on the crippling debt that threatens America’s jobs creation and future prosperity.”
