Washington, D.C.  – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on House Republican leadership’s plan for consideration of a 5th stop-gap budget bill:
“The reason Congress is facing a 5th stop-gap budget bill is because the Republican majority is incompetent.  And it is their incompetence that is placing in doubt how quickly our men and women in uniform can have the resources they need to keep our country safe. 
“Republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House but they have to rely on five stop-gap spending bills in a row to keep government running?  Republicans must stop governing from manufactured crisis to crisis, and work with Democrats to pass the many urgent, long overdue priorities of the American people.”
