Congressman Markwayne Mullin Comments on Passage of Continuing Resolution that Defunds Obamacare
WASHINGTON—Congressman Markwayne Mullin made the following statement after the House passed H.J.R. 59, a continuing resolution that defunds Obamacare and allows the federal government to remain open.
“There was no hesitation when it came to supporting this continuing resolution. Families and business owners across the nation were once told that under Obamacare they could keep their own insurance, that their premiums would go down and that this health care mandate would be budget neutral. We have seen too many examples where this will not be the case. In each of the 26 town halls I recently held throughout the Second District, I heard countless stories of how Obamacare is already crippling budgets and proving to be unworkable and unsustainable. The House stood with the American people today in voting to protect our nation from a burdensome mandate that will bankrupt our economy.”
