FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
January 18, 2019
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement regarding the Pelosi-Schumer Shutdown:
“Make no mistake - this federal government shutdown began due to Democrat obstruction and continues due to Democrat desire to please the resist movement. Senator Shaheen, Senator Hassan, Representative Kuster, and Representative Pappas are posturing for their base while our border remains porous as a new caravan approaches."
"Speaker Pelosi, Senator Schumer, and other Democrat leaders have declined negotiation meeting invitations with the President, enabled by New Hampshire’s flailing federal delegation. With the knowledge that Speaker Pelosi was planning on a week-long trip out of the country, it’s clear to see which party is extending the shutdown for their own selfish interests.”
