Washington DC- Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) highlighted a new fact sheet showing the consequences of a government shutdown to the state. The fact sheet is attached.
“Some members of Congress appear determined to shut down the government to further a narrow ideological goal,” Senator Casey said. “This isn’t a game and could have serious consequences for Pennsylvanians. Why should one of our state’s veterans wait to receive a disability check so a politician in Washington can play political games? This new fact sheet highlights the serious consequences of a shutdown. Allowing the government to shutdown is unnecessary and wholly irresponsible.”
