McHenry Statement on Continuing Resolution that Delays, Defunds Obamacare

Washington, September 20, 2013 | Jeff Butler (202-225-2576)

Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on passage in the House of Representatives of a continuing resolution that delays and defunds Obamacare:
‚ÄúToday the House of Representatives took another important step in the fight to control government spending and protect Americans from the disaster that is Obamacare.  The continuing resolution passed by the House keeps the government open while also maintaining modest controls on Washington's spending and fully defunding the President' healthcare law."   

"With the action today it now becomes imperative that the Senate take up the fight that the House has led for the last three years to defund and dismantle Obamacare.  Only with their help will it be possible to get rid of this trainwreck and protect the quality of healthcare for all Americans."
