QUIZ: Are you a Schrader or a Yoho?
If you blame the Democrats for the shutdown, you agree with Yoho.
Yoho stated in October that the government shutdown was not the result of his or his Republican colleagues' actions but one that lay squarely at the feet of Democrats. “The House of Representatives sent three different solutions to avoid a government shutdown. Each time, the Senate rejected the measure and sent back the same legislation,” Yoho said in a release on his website. “Congress has two chambers and when they disagree they are supposed to come together to resolve the differences. In order to do that we need the Senate to come to the table, something they refuse to do. Yet, Senator [Harry] Reid [D-Nev.] and the Democrats call us the unreasonable ones. Make no mistake about it; this government shutdown is because of the Senate.”
