U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Supports Bipartisan Agreement to End Shutdown and Pay our Bills

“I support the bipartisan Senate plan to end the shutdown, open the government, pay our bills and prevent a government default. This bipartisan compromise will provide our economy with the stability and certainty it desperately needs and it is my hope that it will break this destructive pattern in Washington of drifting from one manufactured crisis to the next.
 
“Now is the time for both parties to work together to pass a responsible budget that invests in the middle class, strengthens our economy and reduces the deficit without shortchanging our future. The middle class families and small businesses that are working so hard to move our economic recovery  forward deserve to have both parties in Washington working together to create jobs and grow our economy.”
