U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Votes to Open the Government and Get the Job Done on Bipartisan Solutions
"We now have an opportunity in the Senate to do right by the American people so we need to get to work and do it."
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement on her vote in the Senate today to open the government and get the job done on bipartisan solutions:
“Enough with round after round of fighting. We now have an opportunity in the Senate to do right by the American people so we need to get to work and do it.
“I will continue my bipartisan work to fully fund community health centers, children’s health care and provide our local communities with the support they need to combat the opioid epidemic and save lives. We have a bipartisan solution in the Senate that strengthens border security and protects Dreamers who have only known America as their home and are working hard, going to school and serving in our military. Let’s get it done. Right now, 25,000 workers and retirees in Wisconsin have their pensions threatened through no fault of their own and Congress needs to act on our reforms that keep a promise for the pensions they have earned. Instead of kicking the can down the road month after month with short term measures that shortchange our troops and veterans, we need to fund them with a long term budget that provides certainty.
“I am committed to getting the job done on bipartisan solutions in the Senate and it’s important that the Republican House and President Trump step up and do the same. It’s time to deliver results for the American people.”
