Vivek Ramaswamy slams House-passed stopgap measure to fund the government

ANAHEIM, Cal­i­for­nia — Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Vivek Ramaswamy crit­i­cized a just-passed stop­gap mea­sure from the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives to keep the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment fund­ed after he fin­ished speak­ing at the Cal­i­for­nia GOP con­ven­tion.
The clean con­tin­u­ing res­o­lu­tion that the House passed on Sat­ur­day keeps the gov­ern­ment fund­ed at cur­rent spend­ing lev­els for 45 days and comes less than 12 hours before the shut­down dead­line, in which a gov­ern­ment shut­down is auto­mat­i­cal­ly trig­gered.
“My first reac­tion is the reac­tion it’s been for the last sev­er­al days, which is this whole debate is a farce. It’s a deflec­tion,” Ramaswamy said about the mea­sure. “Even if the gov­ern­ment were gonna shut down, we know what hap­pens every time. They get the back pay, it comes back big­ger every time. We need to stop the arti­fi­cial debate about fake gov­ern­ment shut­downs and start hav­ing a real debate — how to achieve a true shut­down of the admin­is­tra­tive state.”
