Both Congressmen Vote to Defund Obamacare
Both Congressman Phil Roe and Morgan Griffith voted for H.J. Resolution 59 Friday which defunds Obamacare, but keeps funding for other government operations through December 15th. Congressman Roe told us “I hope my conservative colleagues in the Senate will fight to uphold the provision that defunds ObamaCare when the continuing resolution comes up for a vote in the senate”. Like wise Congressman Griffith said “Like many Americans, I am of the view that Obamacare as drafted cannot and will not work, and I have joined my House colleagues in supporting various measures that would speed up its demise. We hope the Senate will promptly take up the fight, and take appropriate action to defund the President’s unworkable health care law.” Many American media outlets keeps referring to a government shut down which is misleading as this bill is designed to only shutdown Obamacare.
