NDP Chair Kleeb Responds to Deal to End Government Shutdown

Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement after the White House and lawmakers reached a deal to end the federal government shutdown for three weeks until a permanent solution can be reached.

“While it’s encouraging news — and the details are still being worked out — this shutdown should never have happened in the first place,” Kleeb said. “The president’s temper tantrum over his insistence on wasting billions of dollars on a ridiculous wall was reckless, hurt working families, disrupted lives and threatened our safety. The president cannot hope to govern by acting like a two-year-old, and the GOP-controlled Senate — including Sens. Sasse and Fischer — should never have stood for it.”
