Senator Rick Scott on FOX News: Dysfunctional Congress Must Work Together to Open Government and Secure the Border

January 15, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott joined FOX News this morning for his first live interview as Senator. 

Senator Rick Scott: “It makes no sense. It’s completely dysfunctional. 

“Stop and think about it. A vast majority know we have to have border security and support it. They voted for it before. They want the government to open, but you can’t get it done. 

“Then they said they want border security but, gosh, we don’t want barriers. How does that make any sense?

“And then they sit here and they keep getting paid when they know other people that are out there working are not getting paid. So, if you don’t have a budget, you shutdown government, you shouldn’t get paid. 

“Everybody ought to get in a room and say look – we all want border security, we voted for it, let’s get something done.”
