Representative not optimistic about future shutdowns

Without a change to the status quo, Wisconsin’s 8th District Representative Mike Gallagher believes the government could be shut down again. Rep. Gallagher was displeased the 35-day partial government shutdown accomplished nothing to address border security and just moved the next potential crisis three weeks from now. He believes politicians are using the wall to score political points and a fundamental change needs to occur before anything can be accomplished.

Rep. Gallagher renewed his call for reform by reintroducing his “Serve the People, Not the Swamp Act” Monday, which prevent Congress from going to recess without first adopting a balanced budget, place a five-year lobbying ban on its members and executive branch officials, and eliminate pensions.
