Paul Broun on voting to Defund Obamacare

U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. GA-10 today released the following statement after voting in support of H.J. Res. 59, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution. This spending bill would prevent a government shutdown at the end of the fiscal year on September 30, 2013 and defund Obamacare. The bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 230-189 and now awaits consideration by the U.S. Senate.

“I am pleased that my colleagues in the House were able to come together and put forward a bill that keeps the government running while at the same time protects Americans from the trainwreck that is Obamacare,” said Rep. Broun. “The American people have voiced their strong opposition to this terrible law, and today represents a victory for those who have demanded that government stop Obamacare before its October 1st start date. It is vital that the Senate pass this legislation, and that the American people continue to hold their feet to the fire until this law is defunded, and eventually repealed in full. We don’t have much time, but through the voice of ‘We the People,’ we can work to repeal Obamacare, and replace it with solutions, like my Patient OPTION Act, that will put Americans, not government, in charge of their healthcare decisions.”
