Rep. Cohen: ‘The Ball Is in the President’s Court,’ His Job Is to Keep the Government Open

‘That’s what he’s supposed to do, is keep government open’


WHITFIELD: "Just real quickly, is the ball in the Democrats' court?"
COHEN: "The ball is in the president's court. The president is supposed to run the country. That's what he's supposed to do, is keep government open. Yes, he can veto it. But the Senate should have passed the bill. We've done it eight times. If the president wants to veto it, see if we can override his vetoes. But Mitch McConnell became the negative person as well because he hasn't gone through the process. The government is supposed to be operated by the chief executive and he has failed to do his job and carry out the laws."
