Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Calls for Fully Funding Military and Veterans Services During Schumer Shutdown
Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, calling for full funding of military personnel and veterans services during the Schumer Shutdown.
“Now that Senate Democrats have forced a Schumer Shutdown in an attempt to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, we need to ensure our military has full funding and veterans have full access to services. The House should immediately pass a bill fully funding all military personnel and veterans services, such as HR 2166. Then Leader McConnell should bring it to the Senate floor as soon as possible for a vote.
“If Senate Democrats insist on forcing a Schumer Shutdown, they have a responsibility to join Republicans and ensure our military and veterans aren’t drawn into their political game.
“Will Democrats stand with illegal immigrants over the heroes who have pledged their lives to protect and serve this country?“
