Democrat Claims People Would Die Due to Government Shutdown, Votes for It Anyway

Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.) told CNN that people would die because of the government shutdown. Here is what she told CNN (via a quote from Townhall [1]):

“Shutting down the government is a very serious thing. People die, accidents happen. You don’t know. Necessary functions can cease…”

“There is no specific list you can look at and make a judgment: ‘Well everything is going to be just fine.’ You can’t make that judgment. So, I think it’s a last resort. And I’m really hopeful we don’t get to it.”

Then, Feinstein voted [2] against a continuing resolution to fund the government.
