Biden says there’s ‘work to do’ in meeting to avert government shutdown

President Joe Biden met with the top four leaders in Congress on Tuesday as a government shutdown looms yet again.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do,” Biden said. “We have to figure out how we’re going to keep funding the government, which is an important problem, an important solution we need to find. I think we need to do that.”

The president mentioned the need to fund Ukraine and Israel, saying “humanitarian assistance” was a big part of the latter while making sure Israel can face threats from Hamas and Iran. He then circled back to the looming shutdown.

“It’s Congress’s responsibility,” Biden said. “We have to deal with a shutdown that would damage the economy significantly.”
