The Federal Government is officially shutdown. The Senate was unsuccessful in passing a bill.

Senate Democrats put politics above national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans. We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.

#ShumerShutdown. You can thank the Democrats for that.

This shutdown didn’t have to happen, but congressional leaders refused to bring our serious solutions up for a vote. We have bipartisan solutions to keep the government open, fund our military, reauthorize KidsCare, take care of Dreamers, and protect our border.

.@SpeakerRyan, it’s past time for a long-term solution for nat’l defense, DREAMers, CHIP, community health centers, & disaster relief. You have the power to bring a thoughtful agreement forward to achieve those goals with overwhelming bipartisan votes. https://t.co/Bh2Sb1fWL4 pic.twitter.com/EeBByEISXT

I don’t want to see the government shut down, but at some point, we need to fight. The House sent our budget to the Senate over 100 days ago. We need predictability for our military – not a never-ending series of CR’s: https://t.co/lDQixQiUVg #AZ05

After months of prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy and holding the #Dreamers and CHIP hostage, Trump and his congressional Republican enablers have shut down the government. Responsibility rests with them. #TrumpShutdown pic.twitter.com/niM5fpS5Bh

We must decrease our national debt via strong economic growth which we’ve seen under President @realDonaldTrump’s leadership as well as real spending cuts which Congress needs to work to enact. https://t.co/nEVZ8f12zc

My bill ensures our military & federal law enforcement, including agents and officers on the border, get paid during a govt shutdown. These brave Americans are willing to protect this nation with their lives. They should get paid before politicians do.https://t.co/pq5pCRvavc

The GOP controls the White House, the House, and the Senate. If the #shutdown proceeds, it will be entirely on them. This is not how government works.

This bill has no chance in the Senate. The GOP needs to get serious.
