The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Senator Chris Coons of Delaware.
(In the weekly Democratic address, Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) talked about about government spending.)
With Republicans in charge of both the Senate, the House, and the White House, our Republican colleagues are mostly debating amongst themselves about whether months into our new fiscal year we can actually pass a final budget. If they want a shutdown, frankly the ball’s in their court. Democrats have so far been crystal clear about where we stand. We want to keep our government open.[…]
We want to end this pattern of governing from crisis to crisis, moving from one deadline to the next. We also believe we can and must address some other critically important issues before the end of this year as part of the government funding bill. […]
Keeping our government open and fixing the problems in front of us does not need to be hard. It certainly does not have to be partisan. Democrats are ready to get to work and we think we can do more than just keep the lights on. We can address real challenges the American people are dealing with.
