U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D) is chiding House Republicans for failing to allow an up-or-down vote on a so-called "clean funding" bill.
McCaskill released a statement as the midnight deadline passed in Washington, saying the government shutdown will upset economic recovery. She criticized House Speaker John Boehner (R), calling his handing of the budget process "irresponsible political posturing."
The St. Louis County Democrat says the federal government shutdown will hurt Missourians by delaying veterans' benefits, causing furloughs for 39,000 federal employees in Missouri, delaying loans for small businesses and Social Security checks for seniors enrolling in the program for the first time.
During an interview with CNN's Wolfe Blitzer Monday evening, 2nd District Congresswoman Ann Wagoner (R) said the House GOP were the only ones working to avoid the shutdown.
The St. Louis County Republican criticized Senate leadership and President Obama for failing to negotiate over the weekend.
Wagoner issued a statement after the midnight deadline saying that she has waived her salary for the duration of the government shutdown "because congress didn't get the job done." Wagoner blamed the deadlock on "partisan bickering."
Senator Claire McCaskill has long been an advocate for victims of sexual assault in the military. So the Missouri Democrat is perplexed this week after being singled out in St. Louis Post Dispatch and Facebook ads calling her a roadblock to reforming the system.
Protect Our Defenders, a Washington-based advocacy group for military sexual assault victims, took aim at McCaskill over her opposition to an amendment proposed by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.
Gillibrand proposes setting up a new independent legal channel to prosecute sexual assaults and other major crimes. The Pentagon and many Democratic and GOP senators oppose the idea.
