Dems block another GOP attempt to pay federal workers

Jan 23, 2019 | Communications •

I probably sound like a broken record by now, but this is important…Democrats just voted – for the second time – to kill an effort that would have provided federal workers with their first paycheck of the year.
Last week, Republicans voted in favor of an MTR that would have provided the paychecks they earned through January 15. Only six Democrats crossed party lines to support it.Today, the number of Democrats joining us in our second attempt to pay federal workers jumped to 11 as more of them panic over Nancy Pelosi’s failed shutdown strategy. 
This is further evidence of the Democrats’ refusal to work across the aisle to provide relief to the 800,000 federal workers. They are completely obsessed with telling this President no, regardless of the damage it does to our country or individuals who just need to get paid.
