Majority Leader Calls on Senator Begich

Posted: September 20, 2013 at 12:45 pm

Today, the U.S. House passed a resolution to fund the federal government, with the stipulation that Obamacare be defunded. Congressman Don Young said he was eager to pass a bill. He explained: “Having been around during the last government shut down in the 90’s, I saw firsthand the detrimental effects it can have on the country, and we cannot afford to go down that road again.”

 

However, he insisted that Obamacare is ” one of the worst pieces of legislation passed out of Congress” in his 40-year tenure.

 

Following the vote, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said it’s now up to the Senate Democrats to show some responsibility. He pointed specifically to…

 

Rep. Cantor (R-VA): “And finally, what about Mark Begich of Alaska? Through Obamacare, Americans across the country could be hit with a rate shock. In Alaska, it’s predicted that premiums could rise between 30 and 80 percent. What is Senator Begich going to do about this? Will he vote to keep Obamacare in place? We’re into the fight, and we want the Senate to join us.”
