Sen. Cardin: Continuing Resolutions 'Not Going to Help Anyone'

(CNN's "New Day")

By    |   Monday, 22 January 2018 12:15 PM

Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., said Monday that continuing resolutions to keep the government open are not a viable option compared to passing a full budget.

"You have got to draw a line at some point. You can't operate with continuing resolutions… we could have four weeks kicking the can down the road, it's not going to help anyone," Cardin said Monday on CNN's "New Day."

Democrats have opposed short-term funding bills, and have said that President Donald Trump has been difficult to negotiate with, while Republicans have blamed Democrats, saying they are holding funding hostage over immigration, The Hill reported.

"Our goal is to make sure we have a budget for our country, a fair budget for our country, that we take up issues that are critically important, that we have a pathway to get them resolved," Cardin said.

"We want to keep the government open, but we have to have a budget. We're four months into the fiscal year. It's time for a budget," he said.
