House Passes Bill to Fund the Government, but not ObamaCare


Today Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives approved a short term government funding bill that defunds ObamaCare while keeping the rest of the federal government up and running. The bill also ensures the government will not default, by making good on its debt payments, funds Border Patrol and veterans care, and continues the modest sequester savings.

“The House has delivered. Now it’s time to fully support our senators as they work to unite their colleagues behind defunding this terrible health care takeover, ” said U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, the leader of the House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee who has long fought the President’s Affordable Care Act.  “The Senate must act – made for tv filibusters aren't enough  – just deliver the votes to defund ObamaCare as promised.”

“It only takes 41 of 45 Senate Republicans to hold the line, I believe in Senator Ted Cruz and I’m confident he will prevail. It all comes down to the Senate.”
