Black Caucus: Stopgap Funding Makes Little Sense

WASHINGTON – Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver, II released the following statement on the Republican Leadership’s Short –Term Continuing Resolution:  

 

“I could not vote for another short term and short-sighted spending bill presented by the Republican Leadership today. It is time that we all come to the table with an agreement to keep the government working and functioning.   Funding the government in short cycles makes little sense and leaves the American people in limbo. The American people do not deserve this. 

 

“I remain committed to responsibly reducing the deficit, but not at the cost of critical programs that service and support our most vulnerable communities. We cannot rely on hard working American families to continue making the majority of the sacrifices. Weekly irresponsible cuts not only weakens our nation’s full recovery but it also weakens our ability to create jobs. The buck stops here. The time for an agreement is now.”
