Sen. Shelby blames Democrats for government shutdown
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
In an official press statement Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) blamed Democrats for the federal government shutdown.
“Democrats have chosen partisan politics over funding our government, funding our troops, and providing health insurance to low-income children and pregnant women. The American people deserve better,” said Shelby.
Democrats have, for the most, blamed Republicans for the shutdown, citing the last-minute nature of the funding deal that was voted on Friday night. Also pointing towards the fact that Republicans currently control all three branches of the Federal Government.
