Reps. Griffin and Cotton, open this library

  • CLOSED: Until radical Republicans like Tim Griffin and Tom Cotton relent, the Clinton Library will remain closed.

From the Arkansas Democratic Party:

On Tuesday, October 8th at 2:00p.m. State Representative Warwick Sabin will join seniors and veterans to hold a news conference to #DemandAVote from Congressman Tim Griffin on a clean budget to end the government shutdown. The news conference will take place outside the Clinton Presidential Library, which is currently closed to many visitors due to the government shutdown.

In Washington, Congressman Griffin is continuing to oppose any reasonable solution to end the government shutdown that he engineered, repeatedly blocking votes on a clean budget bill.

Tim Griffin is a man of his word. He — and extremist Rep. Rick Crawford (not Tom Cotton, as I originally wrote, but who holds with the shutdown forces completely) — signed a letter that said he would shut down government if a radical minority didn't get its way on blocking new health care coverage for millions of Americans. That's just what he and Cotton and Crawford and Womack and Boozman have done.
