Neugebauer Votes to Fund Government and Protect Americans from Obamacare

WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) released the following statement after the House passed yet another compromise measure to fund the government. 

“The House of Representatives has now voted three times to keep the government operating.  But an agreement requires both the House and Senate to come together, and the Senate has shown no willingness to negotiate. 

“What is most frustrating is that the Senate has rejected our proposal to delay the individual health insurance mandate under Obamacare for one year.  The Administration has given delays, extensions, and carve-outs to all sorts of special interest groups and big businesses.  They are even giving health insurance subsidies to people without verifying whether they’re eligible for them.  So why are they unwilling to give American families the same reprieve from this broken law? 

“I’m disappointed that the Senate is pushing us towards a shutdown, but I’ll continue working to prevent Obamacare from harming my constituents, closing small businesses, and hurting our economy.”
