House Republicans already talking about government shutdown

The Minnesota House Health and Human Services committee will preview “government shutdown" today during its third committee hearing of the 2011 session. State Rep. Erin Murphy (DFL – St. Paul) released the following statement:

“It’s alarming that House Republicans are already talking about government shutdown. This kind of defeatist attitude is not the approach we need to solve our budget deficit, grow our economy, and support Minnesota families and small businesses.

I believe we can balance this budget fairly if we do it the right way. That requires the Republican majority to work with Governor Dayton and both parties over the coming months. We need to fully understand how our actions will affect Minnesotans and our state’s future, be willing to compromise, and find a solution that is fair to Minnesota families.

It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work, not waive the white flag.”
