Robert Hurt on the shutdown

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Va.) released the following statement after announcement that the United States government will suspend services for a period to be determined.

“We in the House have been working diligently to offer proposals to fund the government in recent weeks.  Over that course of time, we have offered three proposals to fund the operations of the government and to embrace fiscal reform in Washington.  The Senate has blocked each and every one of our good faith proposals, refusing to compromise or even negotiate.  In the end, the Senate’s inaction protects special favors for big business, big labor, and the Washington political elite and leaves the Virginia family out in the cold.

“I am disappointed at this turn of events, and I remain committed to working in good faith to find agreement for funding the operations of government as soon as possible.”
