Delegate Bell Responds to Government Shutdown

RICHMOND, Va.: Delegate John J. Bell (D – Loudoun) had the following to say about the federal government shutdown overnight in Washington:

“It's absolutely unconscionable that Republicans in Washington think they can play games with the livelihoods of thousands of Northern Virginia families by shutting down the government. As a veteran, I know how scary it can be for families who don't know if they're going to get their next paycheck and still put their lives on the line every day for our nation. I condemn these actions by President Trump and House and Senate Republicans who think it's better to play politics than practice good government.”
