Oct. 16, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging the House of Representatives to defeat a Senate-proposed continuing resolution that will fail to defund Obamacare:
“One week ago, Speaker John Boehner characterized a vote on a continuing resolution that did not deal with Obamacare as an ‘unconditional surrender’. Today, House Republicans will be voting on just such a bill.
“No Republican who votes for the Harry Reid surrender bill will ever be able to credibly claim that they truly oppose Obamacare, because when push came to shove, they chose to fund and implement it, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that the law is indeed a train wreck.
“Americans for Limited Government urges the House of Representatives to put down the white flag and reject Harry Reid’s surrender terms. Failure to reject this bill destroys any leverage that House Republicans might hope to wield in the proposed future joint committee, as it will have been proven that the Democrats have no need to negotiate so long as they are willing to shut down the government and potentially breach the debt ceiling.”
