It does not happen much, but occasionally both New York's Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and the four Hudson Valley representatives all vote the same way. It happened on Sept. 30 when Republicans Elise Stefanik and Marc Molinaro, and Democrats Pat Ryan and Paul Tonko, all voted to keep the United States government operating temporarily while a few ultra-comservative Republicans holding up a deal decide what, exactly, they want. Only nine very conservative Republicans in the Senate voted against the temporary budget deal, while 90 Republicans and one Democrat in the House voted against the stop-gap measure called, the "Continuing Appropriations Act, 2024 and Other Extensions Act." Ryan said of the vote, “For weeks, far-right MAGA extremists have threatened a government shutdown unless we accept cuts to critical programs that Hudson Valley veterans, seniors, and children rely on. Today, I voted alongside a bipartisan coalition to prevent those cuts and pass a bill that keeps the government open.” Molinaro said, “I’m a yes on the short-term government funding extension. We can do both. We can keep our government running while finishing our work to rein in inflation & secure the border.” The next threat of a government shut down is not\w pushed back after elections in November.
