Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told House Republicans to stop acting like “squealing political pigs.”
“We need to act like adults not like squealing political pigs,” Durbin said on the Senate floor Wednesday.
Durbin’s remarks were in reaction to a House Republican announcement that they would advance a government spending bill that defunds ObamaCare — something Democrats have said would lead to a government shut down.
“If that is what the Tea Party Republicans think is leadership, God save the United States of America,” Durbin said.
Unless Congress agrees on continued spending resolution (CR) by Oct. 1, the government will shut down.
