We cannot continue funding government week by week. It is disruptive and wastes taxpayer money, and it causes significant uncertainty for the private sector. That is why it is imperative for Republicans to put forward a new long-term measure and tell us where they are willing to compromise. They don’t have any excuses left: the Senate rejected House Republicans’ reckless and arbitrary spending cuts, which would have cost thousands of jobs and harmed our economy. And using their own measure - $100 billion in cuts – Democrats have already offered to meet them more than halfway. So it’s time for Republicans to step up and put something new on the table.
