Role in 2018 government shutdown Edit
On July 13, 2018, the group gained notoriety for voting against a bill to raise the debt-ceiling, resulting in the 2018 government shutdown.
On August 6, 2018, a deal was reached between Congressman Clarence Clark and President Laura Montez to end the shutdown. Members of the Jeffersons, sans Ryan, would serve in Clark's new coalition known as "the Libertonians", thus dismantling the Jeffersons.
