Klobuchar on Shutdown Deal: We Have To Start Moving on Climate Change; the Ice Sheets in Greenland Are Melting

‘It becomes harder and harder for the country to move forward and compete in this international economy’

RUSH EXCERPT:

KLOBUCHAR: “The only people that lost really in this last 35 days were the American workers and the American people and just to look at it as a win/loss game is typical of things that he said. But what we have to look at now is what are we going to do over the next three weeks? Because this thing is over the day after Valentine’s day, right? And the hope is that we can look at these security issues in a sensible, smart way. Look at the technology, some of the border crossings and not do what he was suggesting, which made no sense. Many security experts have said that. But instead look at what works best at the border and stop this chaos and start governing from opportunity. What I’m really worried about is what we’re not doing. Pharmaceutical prices rising. We’ve got proposals. We have to get them through. The ice sheets melting in Greenland reaching a tipping point. We have to start moving on climate change. It becomes harder and harder for the country to move forward and compete in this international economy.”
