Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the results of the House vote for the Continuing Resolution:

“Today, House Republicans once again demonstrated their inability to reach 218 votes within their own conference. 

“With lower numbers in the next Congress, the Republican Leadership will have a choice: embrace the unvarnished extremism of their special interest agenda, or come together with Democrats to meet the needs of hard-working people.

“This time, Democrats’ dedication to the families of Flint, victims of opioid addiction and communities hit by the recent storms was enough to push Republicans’ thoroughly mediocre bill over the finish line.

“Republicans should not count on Democrats’ responsibility to rescue them from their own anti-government ideology.”
