Statement from Jackie Walorski on Obamacare and possible shutdown

Posted:

"Plainly stated, it is unfair for the president and Members of Congress to receive special perks from Obamacare.  Since enactment, the president has granted multiple Obamacare waivers and exemptions to big businesses, labor unions, and Members of Congress—picking winners and losers at the expense of the American people.  If Washington Democrats continue to defend Obamacare, they should follow the law under the same conditions as the American people."

Walorski continued, "The House passed three proposals to prevent a government shutdown and dismantle the harmful impacts of Obamacare; meanwhile, Senate Democrats refuse to negotiate a responsible solution. 

"The House continues to offer a compromise to fund the government and provide essential services to the American people.  It is unfair for the Senate to turn a blind eye and encourage a government shutdown that will unfairly affect seniors, veterans, servicemembers, and our families.

"I urge President Obama and Senate Democrats to act on a continuing resolution that averts a government shutdown and supports fairness for all Americans."
