NV Dems Chair Statement: Heller, GOP Own This Government Shutdown

Heller to NBC News in Aug. 2017: “There will be no excuses and nobody else’s fault but the Republican Party if this government does shut down.”

Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement:

“In case anyone forgot, this would be the first-ever real government shutdown under one-party control of Congress and the White House. Sen. Dean Heller and his Republican colleagues in Washington failed to keep the government open because they blocked clean, bipartisan solutions to protect Dreamers and fund CHIP. This dysfunctional approach is reckless and mind-boggling. Not only does Sen. Heller own the political fallout of this mess, he shares responsibility with his party for the damage this shutdown will cause for Nevada families.”
