Democrats’ Cynical Political Strategy

Washington –  This evening, the Republican-controlled House will pass five bills to reopen portions of the federal government.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

President Obama, Harry Reid and congressional Democrats need to stop playing politics.  They are opposing bills and policies they support in order to prolong a shutdown of their own creation.  This cynical political strategy may play well at Democrat campaign events, but it only serves to reinforce what many Americans already knew: President Obama and his political allies care only about protecting a failed law that is hurting the country, not about protecting the people they’re supposed to represent.”
