“18,000 federal workers in West Virginia missed their 2nd pay check today and Senator Shelley Moore Capito’s “NO” vote keeps them out of work or working with no pay even longer. 

“Once again Shutdown Shelley has proven its politics over people for her. Her political relationship with Donald Trump means more to her than the people of West Virginia.

“West Virginian federal workers are struggling to put gas in their cars to go to work with no pay and children are going hungry. Republicans unanimously supported this resolution in December yet today her no vote is simply shameful and purely political.”

West Virginians should call Capito’s offices at 304-347-5372 in Charleston and 202-224-6472 in Washington D.C.
