George W. Bush Calls on ‘Both Sides to Put Politics Aside’ and End Shutdown

Former President George W. Bush spoke out on the weeks-long government shutdown today and said it’s time for everyone to put politics aside and end it.

Bush shared the message on Instagram with a photo of him delivering pizzas to his Secret Service detail.

“@LauraWBush and I are grateful to our Secret Service personnel and the thousands of Federal employees who are working hard for our country without a paycheck. And we thank our fellow citizens who are supporting them. It’s time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown.”

Today marks day 28 of the shutdown.
