Clyburn Statement On The Bipartisan Senate Legislation

October 16, 2013

WASHINGTON --  U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn released the following statement:

“I am pleased the House is voting tonight on the bipartisan Senate compromise legislation to re-open the government, put people back to work, and pay the nation’s bills on time and in full.  Going forward, we must get beyond the repeated episodes of partisan brinksmanship that have been so costly to our country.  It is my sincere hope that this Congress will learn from this needless, manufactured crisis and work together to reach common sense solutions to our nation’s challenges and pass sound economic policies that create good jobs at good wages for hardworking people.”
