Congressman Jon Runyan is one of a handful of Republicans in the House who are willing to pass a funding bill—no strings attached—to end the government shutdown.
"Enough is enough. Put a clean (continuing resolution) on the floor and let’s get on with the business we were sent to do,” Runyan (R-3) said in a statement Tuesday, according to the Burlington County Times.
However, on Tuesday the former Eagles offensive lineman called for an end to the impasse.
"I have very strong concerns about Obamacare and have heard from hundreds of constituents who share them, but shutting down the entire federal government and threatening our economy to make a political point is utterly ridiculous," Runyan told the Times.
