Let's Get Back to Work

Dear Friend,

Early this morning, Congress passed legislation to keep the government open and agreed on a federal budget for the next two years. This budget deal brings us closer to ending the cycle of short-term funding patches and shutdown threats. I voted yes because it is a good deal, but much more work remains.

This budget includes needed investments in veterans healthcare, infrastructure, and national security. It keeps the doors open at Arizona’s community health centers and provides affordable care for tens of thousands of Arizona kids on KidsCare. It also designates $90 billion for disaster relief and funding for the opioid crisis.

Arizonans expect a government that works with them and not against them. Washington politicians shouldn’t congratulate themselves for doing their jobs over four months late. It is Congress’s job to agree on a budget and responsibly fund the government by October 1st of each year. It is shameful it has taken this long.

Now, Congress must act to secure our borders and provide an earned path to citizenship for Dreamers. I’ve reached across the aisle to introduce legislation that achieves these goals. Our bill has the votes to pass right now, and I continue to call on congressional leadership to hold a vote immediately. Those who stand in the way of results, who say ‘my way or the highway,’ and who blame and name call are more focused on the next election than helping the American people. They should step aside and let the adults get to work.
