Beatty Statement on Republican's Fourth Continuing Resolution

On January 18, 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution, H.R. 195, to fund the federal government through February 16, 2018. Following passage, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said: 

"Funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program and protecting 30 million newly-insured Americans—to simply keep the government open—should not be an either-or proposition. Unfortunately, House Republicans are proposing exactly that type of brinkmanship and using the threat of a government shutdown to do it. I support finding a bipartisan, long-term solution to keep the government open, but I cannot vote in favor of another temporary funding bill loaded with a ‘wish list’ of Republican partisan priorities that only kicks the can down the road for another four weeks."
