Sept. 27, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging the House of Representatives to stand firm in its opposition to any continuing resolution that allows Obamacare to be funded:
"House Republicans can still win the day on the effort to stop Obamacare if they keep their resolve to fight the implementation of the law. Today's Senate vote changes nothing and the House is under no obligation to bend to Obama and Harry Reid's will. The specter of Obamacare hangs over our nation's economy, threatening the health and well being of millions of Americans.
"The effort to stop Obamacare is now a high stakes game of chicken precipitated by Harry Reid's unwillingness to talk to House Speaker John Boehner. Americans from all walks of life ranging from heavily Democratic unions like the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the Nevada AFL-CIO to free market supporters like Americans for Limited Government agree that Obamacare is a disaster waiting to happen.
"If the House Republicans stand firm in their commitment to stop implementation of this law, they will find widespread support. And if Harry Reid remains obstinate, he will find many of his former political allies wondering why they ever supported him in the first place. Now is not the time for the faint of heart. It is time for those who believe in less government to hold the line and to once again send Harry Reid an offer he can't refuse that funds the government and stops Obamacare from being implemented."
