Lindsey Graham Still A 'No' On Short Term Funding Extension

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says he still won't vote for a short-term funding extension to avoid a government shutdown. 

"I'm not going to vote for a 30-day CR," he told reporters. "What the House sent over is unacceptable to me. CRs kill the military. If you don't believe me, just ask Gen. Mattis."

The senator from South Carolina told reporters a series of short-term funding extensions is destroying our military and putting the fate of Dreamers' futures at risk.

In a statement, Graham said "It's time Congress stop the cycle of dysfunction, grow up, and act consistent with the values of this great nation."  

The government runs out of money at midnight tonight, with the latest short-term extension currently stalled in the Senate.
