Kuster Statement on Vote Against Short Term Government Funding Bill
(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on her vote against a Republican short-term funding proposal in the House of Representatives:
“Short-term funding measures are no way to run government. It’s disappointing that Congressional Republicans are unwilling to sit down and work across the aisle to provide long-term certainty for important programs that Granite State families rely on. Their short-term funding measure fails to address critical needs, including resources to combat the opioid epidemic, support our veterans, fund our community health centers, and protect young Dreamers. It’s time Congressional Republicans rolled up their sleeves and sat down with Democrats to develop a responsible long-term budget that will produce real results for the American people."
