Stabenow slams House for not being educated on government services

Lawmakers are still at an impasse on how to pass a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government, which has been shut down for more than a week. House Republicans have tried to use the funding measure to defund and repeal parts of ObamaCare, but Senate Democrats have said the House needs to pass a “clean” CR without any riders.
Republicans' latest move has been to pass smaller funding measures for national parks, the National Guard, veterans' programs and the National Institutes of Health, among several others.
Stabenow said the “mini” spending bills from the House make it seem like they didn’t even know the government provided some of those services until they were no longer being provided.
