Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement after voting in support of funding and opening the government:

“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made commitments to work with Democrats to address the many pressing issues we face. The Republican majority passed a giant tax cut for their wealthy donors in a matter of days. They’ve had more than a year to pass a sensible budget. We have much to get done and if they can’t govern responsibly, they have no business being in charge.”

Perlmutter spoke about the need for the Republican majority to pass a long-term budget on the floor of the House earlier today.
