Democrats to Republicans: Don’t Put Us through This Again

Des Moines – After more than two weeks, the reckless Republican shutdown ended tonight with a resolution that reopens the government and raises the debt ceiling until February.  With this crisis behind us, Iowa Democrats had this message for Senator Grassley and Representatives King and Latham – don’t hold our country hostage again.

“Iowans are relieved the Republicans came to their senses and finally ended this shutdown,” said IDP Chair Scott Brennan.  “Senator Grassley and Representatives King and Latham held our country hostage for more than two weeks, and all we have to show for it are middle class Americans whose lives have been needlessly toyed with by the Republican Party.  We need representatives in Washington that will put the needs of their constituents first, not the reckless policies of their party.  We cannot allow Grassley, King and Latham to put our state and country through this again.”
