We’ve got to end the hostage politics.
It's clear the GOP is willing to do anything to pursue their extreme, ideological agenda,including putting hundreds of thousands of folks out of work, endangering veterans'benefits, taking away nutritional assistance for pregnant women and infants, and riskingour nation's entire economy.We must stand up for American families and stand against those who practice the politicsof division in order to end this Republican government shut down.

Texas in every way.
