American public needs to elect lawmakers who will lead the nation forward

WASHINGTON – American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox Sr. today issued the following statement:

“Averting a government shutdown with only days to spare is no reason to celebrate. Congress has merely kicked the can down the road for another 10 weeks, when we will face yet another budget showdown.

“Public servants and American families deserve better. This November, we need to elect lawmakers who will lead this country forward and remove the obstructionists who are standing in the way of progress.”
