GOP Congressman Makes Case For Why ‘We Should Not Fear A Government Shutdown’
A Republican lawmaker argued on Tuesday in favor of making a play for spending cuts without “fear” of a government shutdown as the appropriations process ramps up.
Appearing with colleagues in the conservative House Freedom Caucus outside the U.S. Capitol Building, Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) made a hardline case for demanding fiscal restraint ahead of the new fiscal year, which starts in the fall.
“We should not fear a government shutdown. Most of what we do up here is bad anyway,” Good said.
