Republicans responsible for tonight's shutdown

Republicans responsible for tonight’s shutdown. After Republican leaders are unable to avert a government shutdown, the Florida Democratic Party released this statement:

 “There is no escaping the fact that Republicans own both houses of Congress and the White House — and when given the choice between political gamesmanship and keeping the government open for business, GOP leaders chose the former,” said Terrie Rizzo, Chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party. “Make no mistake, Mitch McConnell’s calculated decision to revoke the bipartisan framework for improving border security and extending DACA cost him the support of moderates in his own party, and voters in Florida will remember that this shut-down occurred under Republican watch.”
