WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Continuing Resolution failed to pass the House:

"This vote sent a clear message to Republicans: the American people want a bipartisan approach to running our government. We should immediately pass disaster relief that meets the needs of our people and protect - not cut - programs proven to create jobs while we reduce the deficit. If Republican leaders bring a bill to the floor that honors the bipartisan agreement from August, they will find it has bipartisan support for passage."
