Democrat Congressman Bill Enyart of Belleville is joining other colleagues in the House to decry what he calls attempts to play politics with our nation's Veterans, caught in the middle of the government shutdown. On Wednesday, the House Majority attempted to pass a stand-alone funding cut of over $6 billion to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Enyart called it a "phony bill that was a complete slap in the face to Veterans who need care."

Enyart joined Republican Rodney Davis this week in welcoming a group of 8th graders from Evangelical School in Godfrey to the U.S. Capitol. The two gave the children a personal tour of the Capitol, as the staffers that would normally do that have been furloughed.
