After Bernie Moreno Supports Government Shutdown, Frank LaRose Falls In Line

LaRose puts his finger in the wind, again
Columbus, OH – After Bernie Moreno supported efforts to shut down the federal government, Frank LaRose put his finger in the wind and decided to fall in line. Earlier this week, Moreno said Republicans should shut down the federal government until “we finish Trump’s [border] wall.” Today, during a conservative radio interview, LaRose parroted Moreno’s talking points.
Steve Bannon: “Mitch McConnell just came out with a CR [to keep the government open]… If you were in the United States Senate today, brother LaRose, where would your vote be on this?”
Frank LaRose: “I wouldn’t be supportive of this.”
If the government shuts down, Ohioans receiving Social Security and Medicare will be at risk for disruptions. An estimated 6,800 active duty troops in Ohio would not receive pay. Many Ohio families, including more than 93,000 Ohio children, will lose their access to affordable food. A shutdown would also negatively impact the economy, Ohio workers, and Ohio families.
“Frank LaRose continues to put his political ambitions before Ohioans and is now parroting Bernie Moreno’s talking points in support of a government shutdown, which would be devastating for Ohioans,” said ODP spokesperson Reeves Oyster.
