Senator Boxer: Preventing Default and Reopening the Government

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
2013-10-18 12:09:37
Dear Friend:�� � I wanted to share with you the statement I wrote right after the Senate announced a bipartisan deal to reopen the government and prevent a catastrophic default on our nation�s debt: "Bipartisanship in the Senate is leading America out of a painful, partisan, self-inflicted crisis.� Relief doesn�t begin to describe my feelings at this moment in history as the Senate came together not a moment too soon. "During the 16-day government shutdown, I worked to show through my committee chairmanship and as a Senator of the largest state in the country just how painful the shutdown has been to millions of Americans, and how we should never again go through another government shutdown or even a flirtation with a devastating default. "There are many issues that divide Republicans and Democrats, but the one thing I trust this outcome ensures is that we will always keep the government open, pay our bills, and work together." Sincerely, Barbara Boxer United States Senator

Dear Friend:
    
I wanted to share with you the statement I wrote right after the Senate announced a bipartisan deal to reopen the government and prevent a catastrophic default on our nation�s debt:
 

Bipartisanship in the Senate is leading America out of a painful, partisan, self-inflicted crisis.  Relief doesn�t begin to describe my feelings at this moment in history as the Senate came together not a moment too soon.

During the 16-day government shutdown, I worked to show through my committee chairmanship and as a Senator of the largest state in the country just how painful the shutdown has been to millions of Americans, and how we should never again go through another government shutdown or even a flirtation with a devastating default.

There are many issues that divide Republicans and Democrats, but the one thing I trust this outcome ensures is that we will always keep the government open, pay our bills, and work together.

 

Sincerely,


Barbara Boxer
United States Senator
