Washington, DC – March 15, 2011 - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) joined a bipartisan effort to keep the government running and voted to support a temporary measure that incorporates cuts from both parties:
“Let me be clear, passing two-week or three-week stopgap measures is no way to run a government,” said Rep. Braley. “But when the choice is a temporary spending measure or a government shutdown that would deny care for our veterans and stop Social Security checks from going out – then I believe it’s my duty to make sure crucial programs all over Iowa and the country are not disrupted by a shutdown.
“It’s long past time that we sit down and have a responsible, adult discussion about the budget – and pass a long term spending plan that gives American families, soldiers and businesses the certainty they deserve.”
