Texas Congressman Kevin Brady, chairman of the House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the Senate Democrats’ refusal to go to conference to work out a continuing resolution:
“Closing the government is a serious matter. I call on Senate Democrats to back away from protecting their exemption from ObamaCare and put the people first. After all, they wrote ObamaCare – why do they refuse to live under it?
“And why keep the government closed to protect a special ObamaCare waiver for business, but deny workers and families the same treatment? Shouldn’t we treat all Americans the same? Sit down with House Republicans. Together, let’s end this special treatment that no one can justify and get the government working again.”How To Get Back Together With Your Long Distance Ex Boyfriend
