House Votes to Keep Government Running & Stop ObamaCare

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement calling on the United States Senate to approve the House’s plan to keep the government running, delay the president’s health care law for all Americans, and repeal the law’s medical device tax:

“The House has again passed a plan that reflects the American people’s desire to keep the government running and stop the president’s health care law.  Repealing the medical device tax will save jobs and delaying the president’s health care law for all Americans is only fair given the exemptions the White House has granted to big businesses and insurance companies.  We’ve also voted to ensure that our troops will receive their paychecks no matter what.  Now that the House has again acted, it’s up to the Senate to pass this bill without delay to stop a government shutdown.  Let’s get this done.”
