Garrison calls shutdown “sad day for America.” Calls Johnson actions “shameful.”

October 1, 2013

“This is a sad day for America.  After nearly three years of gridlock and obstruction, our Congress has reached a point where it is unable to perform even the most basic function of ensuring our government continues to operate.  This is an irresponsible, political stunt that will harm our economy and further damage the toxic political atmosphere in Washington.”

“It is shameful that Congressman Johnson voted to shutdown the government.  Our country needs representatives who may not always agree, but are willing to work together to help American families.  If I am elected to Congress, I will work to achieve results and to bring people together in a way that strengthens our country, as opposed to continuing down the path of partisan bickering that harms everyone except those looking to score cheap political points.”
