August 21, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging the House of Representatives to attach H.R. 2682, the “Defund Obamacare Act of 2013” to the upcoming continuing resolution due on Sept. 30:

“The House has the power to stop Obamacare before 2014 by passing budgets that fund all essential items except the health care law. If the Senate and Obama refuse to fund the rest of the government, it is they who will be shutting it down.

“Not only should members cosponsor the Defund Obamacare Act, they must insist that it be attached to an upcoming vote on the continuing resolution. This is the last opportunity to defund this law before the individual mandate goes into effect, before the Medicaid expansion kicks in and before the state insurance exchange subsidies ensue. Otherwise, the health care law will go into effect and it will become permanent.”

Attachments:

Defund Obamacare the only way,” Bill Wilson, August 13, 2013
