Time for Pelosi to stay in D.C. and fund the government

Jan. 17, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump canceling a planned trip by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to Europe, Africa and Asia on military aircraft:

“At a time when there is a partial government shutdown, it would be a slap in the face of those federal workers who have been sidelined due to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to negotiate border security funding measures for the Speaker to go on a seven-day, worldwide junket. The President’s cancellation of the Speaker’s ability to utilize military aircraft for this trip is appropriate and it is hoped that the Democrats who recently partied in Puerto Rico and Pelosi herself who spent the first week of the shutdown in Hawaii will finally get serious about protecting our nation’s security and build the wall.”
