RELEASE: With Funding for DHS Set to Expire Tomorrow, Will Frank Guinta End the Mess He and Kelly Ayotte Created?
Even Fellow Republican Peter King Has Called Out Guinta and House GOP for Playing “Too Risky a Game” With Human Lives
Concord, N.H. – After holding funding for the Department of Homeland Security hostage for weeks, only one question remains: will Frank Guinta finally end the mess that he and Kelly Ayotte created?
House Republicans need to pass a clean funding bill to avert a DHS shutdown, and so far Guinta has given no indication that he will support such a bill.
“Frank Guinta and Kelly Ayotte have pushed DHS to the brink of a shutdown, and there’s one simple way to get out of this mess: pass a clean bill,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “It’s long past time for Frank Guinta to finally stop playing politics with our public safety and tell John Boehner to allow a vote on a clean DHS funding bill.”
Even fellow Republican Peter King of New York has called out Guinta and House Republicans for playing games with public safety, saying, “If I have to vote against the Republican leadership, I will… This involves human lives and this is too risky a game to be playing here.”
