Tim Kaine on Trump Shutdown announcement

tim kaineU.S. Sen. Tim Kaine released the following statement today after the Senate passed legislation to reopen the government for three weeks.

“For more than a month, President Trump tyrannized hardworking public servants in an attempt to force Congress to do what he wants. I’m relieved we passed a bill to end this shutdown so millions of Americans can receive the government services they’ve been forced to go without and – because of our back pay bill – federal employees will finally get their paychecks. Now both parties in Congress must work to reach a long-term compromise and ensure a government shutdown is never again used as a negotiating tactic.”
