New York State Democratic Committee Chair June O’Neill today issued the following statement on Senate Republicans refusal to compromise and go back to work

“Last week Republicans hijacked our State Senate and brought the legislative process to a screeching halt. Now, the same people who tried to disguise their power grab as an attempt at reform are refusing to negotiate a solution that will enable our state government to go back to work.

Our Democratic leadership has worked diligently over the past months to address New York’s biggest challenges. They have done, and continue to do, what is best for all New Yorkers. Democratic leaders have sat at the table – across from those who shut our government down – and sought a bi-partisan compromise because they know that putting the best interests of New Yorkers above their own self interests is what they were elected to do.

Now, more than ever, New Yorkers need their government to be hard at work on their behalf. It is time for Republicans to put their egos aside and join our Democratic leadership in making the real changes our state needs or face the consequences at the polls.”
