Sept. 10, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging members of the House of Representatives to defeat the rule for the continuing resolution that will allow funding for Obamacare:
“House Republicans should stand firm against parliamentary tricks that allow the funding of Obamacare while providing ‘political cover’ through a meaningless vote to ‘defund’ the law that the Senate can simply ignore. Passage of a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare would make House Republicans 100 percent complicit in the implementation of the law. A vote for this rule is nothing more than an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people and is a direct assault on the promises House Republicans made in 2010 when seeking election to ‘fight efforts to fund the costly health care law.’”
