Members of Congress were quick to tweet their observations when the Capitol was locked down Thursday because of shots fired.
We all owe the Capitol Police a debt of gratitude for their work every day; no finer examples of professionalism & bravery.

The brave men and women of our Capitol Police put their lives on the line every day to protect us, and I thank them for their service.

All clear. All safe. And I thought all the insanity was on the inside.

Congress voted to ensure that our military is paid during the shutdown. That same relief should extend to the National Guard and Reserves.
