Bachmann: Shut Down Obamacare, Not the Government

Sep 20, 2013

Washington, D.C. -- Congresswoman Michele Bachmann released the following statement after voting for a continuing resolution to defund Obamacare and keep the government open.

“Today the House of Representatives listened to the will of the American people and voted to keep the government open while defunding Obamacare. The President’s health care law is hurting economic growth, causing cutbacks in jobs and hours, and jacking up insurance premiums. We must save the American people from these disastrous consequences of Obamacare while still keeping the government open. Even President Obama’s Big Labor allies are trying to exempt themselves from Obamacare, declaring it will hurt the middle class and erase the 40-hour work week. Obamacare is completely unworkable and deeply unpopular, and I will continue fighting until this train wreck is defunded once and for all so we can start over with free market, patient-centered health care reforms."
