Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) issued a statement Tuesday October 1 on the failure of House Republican leaders to allow a vote on a clean CR (continuing resolution) to avert a government shutdown.

“It’s outrageous and sad that instead of allowing a vote on and helping pass the clean CR that passed the Senate, Speaker Boehner allowed a fringe of his caucus to shut down the government in a quest to refight a tired ideological battle. The obsession that this small group of Tea Party Republicans in Washington has with defunding and dismantling the Affordable Care Act is inexplicable. The economic harm that a government shutdown will inflict on families and businesses in Connecticut and across the country is inexcusable. Folks in Connecticut and across the country deserve better than continued ideological debates in Washington. They need a government that functions, and they deserve a government that puts them first. I will be working for cooperation and action so that this crisis, which was completely avoidable, is ended as quickly as possible.”

What does Team Stewart and the New Britain GOP have to say about  the extremists in their own party?

    I would say that it’s now a shame for one to call him or herself a Republican. Republicans and especially Tea parties don’t care about people, their health, their health insurance, poverty, and simply people.
