Casey: GOP Rushes Home For Holidays, Leaving Long To-Do List Behind

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey is releasing the following statement after Continuing Resolution vote:

“It’s outrageous that Republicans in Congress are rushing to go home for Christmas instead of fully reauthorizing the Children’s Health Insurance Program and addressing other vital priorities. The Republicans who run Congress had all the time in the world to cut taxes for the super-rich and big corporations and now are urgently skipping town before families who rely on CHIP have peace of mind in knowing that their kids’ health care coverage will continue beyond a matter of weeks. Instead of passing this bill, which stiffs kids, our law enforcement officers and fails to protect the Dreamers, members of Congress should stay in town and address these issues.”
