Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel blasted Senate Democrats for their decision to shut down the government during an interview on Saturday.

“Let’s do the math. You need 60 votes in the Senate to keep the government open. Republicans only have 51 senators. We need Democrats to keep this government open,” McDaniel told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “They made a decision to shut it down. This is their choice. Everyone wants to keep it open.”

McDaniel then pointed out that Senate Democrats did not oppose anything in the continuing resolution that the Senate could not pass on Friday.

“I know they don’t oppose the Children’s Health Insurance Program. I know they don’t oppose funding our military,” said McDaniel.

“So why did they shut it down? Why not give 30 days to work on the issues that we can come to an agreement on that everybody is saying we should agree on? So, I just don’t understand why Democrats did this. The president is in Washington, D.C. focusing on fixing this problem,” McDaniel concluded.
