Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed yet another Continuing Resolution:                                                   

“I am disgusted once again to see the GOP leave town kicking the can down the road without completing any of Congress’ important work.  The long-time bipartisan Children’s Health Insurance Program needs a long-term reauthorization, Community Health Centers need funding certainty, Dreamers need protection from deportation, and we need to do much more. Instead the GOP chose to focus on tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy and putting as much as $7,100 on the credit card of every man, woman, and child in this country. My hope for 2018 is that my GOP colleagues will agree to work in a bipartisan way to help the hardworking people in the middle, who they left behind in 2017.”
