Survey From Representative Martha Roby
Jr., Sr., etc.
Fierce disagreement over spending policies of the federal government between House Republicans, Senate Democrats and President Obama has led to a government shutdown. As the debate goes forward, what course of action do you think Congress should take?
Continue stalemate. Both parties should stand their ground, despite the risk of defaulting on our nation's debt payments and a prolonged government shutdown.
Negotiate. Both sides should sit down and talk to produce a reasonable solution that funds government functions, avoids default, while achieving meaningful spending reforms.
Pass a "clean" Continuing Resolution funding the government at levels requested by President Obama and raise the debt ceiling increase without any spending reforms.
I am not sure at this time.
Have you been directly impacted by the government shutdown that began on October 1st?
