WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kweisi Mfume (MD-07) issued the following statement regarding his vote in favor of a short–term government funding bill to keep the federal government open for 45 days. This legislation will now be taken up by the United States Senate for a vote.
“Today, Democrats stood tall for the American people, while this vote marked a surrender and defeat to the MAGA extremists in Congress. The legislation we passed out of the U.S. House today gives Congress 45 days to further beat back these dangerous attempts by the extreme members of the Republican Party to cause our nation to implode. This is not a permanent nor perfect solution, but it was a necessary step to protect the innocent American lives that would have been adversely affected without the critical services of the federal government.”
