DeLauro Statement on Extreme House Republican Funding Bill
House Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) released the following statement in response to the House Republicans’ extreme continuing resolution:
“Less than two weeks away from a government shutdown, House Republicans are still more focused on introducing extreme funding bills that would cut funding to the National Institutes of Health including funding for cancer research, defund the police, and decrease resources to important allies like Ukraine and Israel than working on bipartisan solution that could be enacted.
“House Republicans want to shut down the government because House Democrats, Senate Republicans and Democrats, and President Biden oppose their extreme cuts that will make working families pay even more for the things they need at a time when the cost of living is already too high.
“As I said last week when they had to pull the Defense bill from floor consideration, it is time to end the charade and to get to work.”
