Kohl Statement on Federal Shutdown
January 19, 2018
Grafton – With the failure to reach a compromise leading to a shutdown of the federal government, non-profit leader and business executive Dan Kohl issued the following statement:
“We see this act with nauseating regularity. Looming government deadlines. Last ditch efforts at compromise. Bad faith and partisanship carrying the day.
As we enter this government shutdown, we should be angry and concerned. Let’s also be clear-eyed that this pattern of lurching from one crisis to the next will continue unless we take corrective steps and demand leaders that will focus on solutions. It’s an outrage that a nation as great as ours has a federal government that operates in such a dysfunctional and damaging way. “
