Clyburn Statement on GOP CR Failure

Sep 21, 2011 Issues: Spending Cuts and Debt

WASHINGTON, DC—Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today issued the following statement after the Republican Leadership's Continuing Resolution failed to pass the House by a vote of 195 to 230: 

"I'm pleased the House rejected the Republican Leadership's outrageous attempt to advance their partisan agenda by holding disaster victims hostage. After this embarrassing defeat, I am hopeful common sense will prevail and the Republican Leadership will now produce a clean bill to fund essential services and provide disaster relief without further delay."
