Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-03): #SenateMustAct

Sep 20, 2013 Issues: Health, Spending Cuts and Debt

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statement on the passage of H.J.Res.59 today:

“The American people spoke, and the House of Representatives listened.  It is that simple.  Americans have rejected ObamaCare and the experts have sounded the alarms.  Families, businesses, health care providers, economists, and even labor unions agree – ObamaCare is bad news for our health care and our wallets.  The Administration has acknowledged ObamaCare is not ready for prime time by delaying key provisions on behalf of large corporations and political allies. Even some of the architects of ObamaCare are now calling it a train wreck.”
 
“If there is a hazard in your sight, you take a detour.  That is what the House has done with this Continuing Resolution.  The bill passed today simply funds the government at current sequestration levels while defunding ObamaCare. Additionally, the legislation prioritizes government spending if the debt ceiling is reached so the President cannot play politics with our seniors, soldiers, and veterans.”
 
“For too long the Senate has sat on their hands while shooting down proposals that have yet to even be put on paper.  The House stands with the American people.  Let the Senate defy the people at their political peril.”
