Against the backdrop of a federal government shutdown, Mike Soliman, spokesman for U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), swatted at U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3) after the Congressman urged Menendez to persuade Democrats to stop the shutdown.
Each side blames the other for the shutdown.
For his part, Soliman objected to the political implications of MacArthur’s statement earlier today and struck back.
“While millionaires like MacArthur engage in sleazy personal attacks and lining the pockets of the super-rich with tax cuts they don’t need, Bob Menendez will continue to fight for the working families of New Jersey day in and day out,” said Menendez’s former state director.
