(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the inability of Republicans to govern responsibly:

“Americans are desperate for leadership. But instead of abandoning the most extreme voices within their ranks, Republicans opted once again to lower the bar of what Americans can expect from them. That Speaker Ryan and the rest of the GOP leadership team even needed a fourth stop-gap funding bill shows just how scrambled their priorities are.

“Congress can pass a year-long spending bill that meets bipartisan goals - providing certainty for DREAMers, funding our national priorities, protecting Americans’ pensions, and ensuring health insurance for 9 million children. Republicans merely need to choose to lead.”
