While House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) knocks down the GOP’s piecemeal approach to funding parts of the government, telling “New Day” Anchor Kate Bolduan that there may be “enough rational Republicans” joining Democrats to pass a funding bill to overcome the government shutdown.
Rep. Hoyer says, “It appears that we may be getting to a place where there are going to be enough rational Republicans to join with the Democrats and pass what is a continuing resolution, which will fund government, get us open, give us the opportunity over the next six weeks to see if we can come to an agreement for a final resolution for the balance of the year. A cooling off period, if you will. That makes sense for the American people. Makes sense for the government. Makes sense for the country.”
