Democratic lawmakers who claimed they did not want a government shutdown voted to shut down the government.
“Who wants to shut down the government? I don’t want to shut down the government,” said former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.).
“Let’s be very blunt. There is no such thing as a good shutdown,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) said.
“The government should not be shut down,” Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) argued.
“I didn’t run for the Senate to shut down the government,” Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) added.
