“It’s incredibly frustrating,” said Cassidy in an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak. “Democrats and Republicans broke down into five working groups. They came to agreement on all five areas — appropriations, for example, tax law changes upon health and welfare issues, etcetera — we put them into a package, and now we had a vote tonight that would just allow us to continue to debate it for the next 30 hours. Keep in mind, all this negotiation has taken place between Democrats and Republicans. Pelosi came over with Schumer after having agreed to everything, and then said no, they wanted something different, far different.”
Cassidy went on, “This is something that we don’t need at this moment, and we’re speaking about a package, which is huge — which is the biggest package ever put out by the federal government — to help the American people. And it would provide certainty for those who know that tomorrow they’re going to have to make note payments in two weeks.
“I cannot believe that Pelosi and Schumer are attempting to do this,” added Cassidy. “Frankly, I am shocked that Democratic senators are going along with it. I’m not a partisan guy, at this point. I’m so sorry they are.”
Cassidy remarked, “This is about the American people, not about being a Democrat or Republican.”
Cassidy stated, “I know what’s going through the mind of Americans if Congress can’t even get together on this, what does my future look like?”
