Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Representative Martha McSally today released the following video regarding the government shutdown and today’s vote to reopen the government:

“The Democrats didn’t disagree with anything that was in the bill that the House passed last Friday: fund the government, fund our military, and fund children’s health insurance for 9 million kids that are vulnerable. Yet here we are today, and what they were against on Friday that are suddenly for today.

In the past Chuck Schumer called a government shutdown idiocy, Nancy Pelosi called it legislative arson, and Kyrsten Sinema called it shameful.

Since Friday, our troops have been in uncertainty. National Guard training in Arizona was canceled. Hundreds of people in our communities at our military bases were furloughed. This is not how our military should be spending their time. Our military should be training to make sure they can fight to keep us safe.

It’s good to see Democrats have finally come to their senses and decide to open up our government and support our troops and support our kids. I hope we don’t see the same hostage-taking tactics from Democrats in the future.”
