Statement from Senator Mark Kirk on Shutdown of the Federal Government

Tuesday, Oct 1, 2013

Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) released the following statement:

"It is unfortunate that partisan differences have brought us to a shutdown of our government. From day one I maintained that while I do not support ObamaCare, a shutdown of the federal government will have a negative impact on our markets and the economy. If we are to overcome this impasse, both sides must be willing to compromise."
