With the federal government expected to reopen on Tuesday, Congressman Tom Reed issued this statement Monday night:
“The American people rejected this shut down, knowing full well extremism is no way to run a country. Children health care, our military and countless other services Americans depend on cannot simply be shut down so extremists can make a point.
“My colleagues and I in the Problem Solvers Caucus will continue to lead bipartisanship efforts in the House to work out a long term funding solution and fix to failing immigration and border security policies. The House and Senate can only find real solutions to America’s critical issues within a culture of trust and good faith negotiations.”
