Sept. 30, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging the Senate to adopt the House-passed continuing resolution that funds the government and defunds and delays implementation of Obamacare for one year:
"The House has done its job. It has passed a continuing resolution that funds the government, and defunds and delays implementation of the not-ready-for-primetime Obamacare for one year. The Senate and White House can accept this gift or leave it, but the health care law in its current form must not be allowed to be implemented. If a government shutdown is so horrible, you'd think the Senate would delay the dysfunctional Obamacare for one year to avoid one.
"In the meantime, Senate Republicans should defeat any continuing resolution that allows funding for Obamacare to go into effect. It is time they take a stand on behalf of the American people."
