WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement calling on the Senate to pass H.R. 3230, the Pay Our Guard and Reserve Act:
“Republicans continue to try and keep critical parts of the government running in the face of Democrats’ refusal to negotiate. Earlier this week, the House and Senate unanimously voted to ensure our military is paid no matter what, and the president signed that measure into law. We should have no trouble coming together and extending the same relief to our National Guard and Reserves. These men and women make incredible sacrifices for our country, and they and their families deserve this certainty and fairness. The Senate should send this bill to the president’s desk immediately.”
