WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement last night on Washington’s failure to avert a government shutdown:
“Americans expect and deserve their elected officials to work together to find solutions. If we had a functioning Senate we would not be in this position. Unfortunately, Senate Democrats and President Obama refuse to come to the table and work toward a responsible solution with those who disagree with them. They would rather shut down the government than negotiate.
“I am anxious for this impasse to come to an end, and I will continue to do everything I can to make certain Kansans’ voices are heard in Washington.”
