Tea Party Patriots Action Responds to the Government Shutdown

Atlanta, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responded to the temporary, partial government shutdown over funding for the border wall and released the following statement:

 

“Schumer Shutdown II, the sequel, is literally about Chuck Schumer shutting down the government as the first attack of the 2020 presidential campaign. Five billion dollars out of a more than $4 trillion budget for a border wall to keep our country safe and secure is not too much to ask — that $5 billion is a rounding error in Washington. Schumer needs to put America First, not his personal politics — and we all KNOW it’s nothing but politics, because Schumer voted for funding a physical barrier previously, in 2006 and 2013. The only reason Schumer refuses to support a physical barrier now is because the president is named ‘Trump,’ and Schumer is doing everything he can to deny the President the ability to keep his campaign promises. We applaud President Trump and all who voted with him — they’re keeping their promise to the American people. We stand with them and all Americans who understand the first and foremost priority of our government is to keep our country safe.”
