Congressman Fleischmann Votes to Keep the Government Open and Defund Obamacare

Sep 20, 2013

WASHINGTON− The House of Representatives passed H.J.Res. 59, continuing government funding at the sequester levels and defunding Obamacare.  With the passage of this bill the House has done its part to assure the United States government continues to function.  Following the vote, Congressman Fleischmann made the subsequent statement.

"Today I, and the House of Representatives, voted to keep the American government functioning and to defund Obamacare.  The President has proven this law is a train wreck by picking and choosing which parts he wants to implement.  The whole thing must go.  At the same time, our nation must continue to move forward and address the real problems that we’re facing.  That is why this bill also ensures that our government will continue to operate, and will do so within the parameters set by the President’s sequester.  I hope the Senate will follow our lead and do the responsible thing by keeping our government open and defunding a law that most Americans don't want."
