Washington DC (October 9, 2013) – Now nine days into the Tea Party government shutdown, hasn’t the middle class suffered enough? Not enough for Tea Party Republicans in Congress who continue to throw out absurd ransom demands in exchange for doing their job and keeping the government functioning. Brad Woodhouse, President, Americans United for Change: “Make no mistake: refusing to support clean legislation to keep the government open at the 11th hour was the act of extortionist Tea Party Republicans plain and simple. Some Republicans even openly cheered it on. The anti-government Tea Partiers who are calling the shots in the House demanded a ransom they knew they would never get: killing the Affordable Care Act.

PoliticsPA: “The House passed several bills to keep the government open. The Senate
rejected each of them, shutting down the government,” said Barletta
campaign spokesman Lance Stange. “Rep. Barletta remains committed to
discussing how we can re -open the government and pay our bills whenever
the Senate decides to have that conversation.”
