Congress has sent a stopgap bill to the President that would extend the deadline to fund USDA and several other agencies through March 8th.

Congressman Eric Sorenson of Illinois tells Brownfield it’s time to put politics aside…

“Does our Speaker of the House have good faith to be able to want that bipartisan path forward?”  He says, “One political party is not going to win just by bullying the other. We just need the Speaker of the House to throw politics aside and say, you know what, ‘we’re going to do what’s right for the people.’”

He says congressional leadership needs to focus less on political extremists…

“We know how to disarm a toddler who’s having a temper tantrum over in the corner.”  He says, “Don’t give them the attention that they don’t deserve, and they’re going to quiet down.
