Rep. Scott says "30 day CR is not perfect, but it is better than a shutdown"


During his speech on the House floor, Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) asserted that House Democrats are unintentionally elevating the conservative agenda by casting votes that are leading the nation towards a potential government shutdown.


Scott highlighted the significance of a small group of disruptive conservative representatives who, with the backing of some Democrats, possess the power to impede legislative progress and bring about a government shutdown.


Expressing his concerns, Scott argued that while the 30-day temporary funding bill, which includes funding for border security measures and reduces current spending levels, may not be flawless, it is a preferable alternative to the detrimental repercussions of a shutdown.


He rejected the notion that Republicans and American citizens should bear the burden of a massive $2 trillion deficit, especially when the nation is not at war, in a recession, or experiencing a health emergency. Additionally, Scott refuted claims made by Democrats regarding school teacher pay during a potential shutdown, highlighting that teachers receive their paychecks from the county rather than the federal government.


Ultimately, the 30-day temporary spending bill failed to pass the House, with 198 House Republicans supporting the measure and not a single House Democrat voting in favor, along with 21 conservative Republicans who joined Democrats in opposing it.

No CR. Get busy and pass the other appropriation bills. A few days out of work won't kill the government. Remember the COVID shutdown? No one in government seemed to worried then.

“We are truly heading for the first-ever shutdown about nothing,” said Michael Strain, director of economic policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, a right-leaning think tank. Strain has started referring to the current GOP House-led impasse as “the ‘Seinfeld’ shutdown,” a reference to the popular sitcom widely known as “a show about nothing.” “The weirdest thing about it is that the Republicans don’t have any demands. What do they want? What is it that they’re going to shut th

e government down for? We simply don’t know.”
