Tea Party Express Praises House Republican Leadership for Passing Continuing Resolution
Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, praises Speaker of the House John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and the rest of the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives for passing the Continuing Resolution, by a vote of 230-189, that totally funds the federal government while defunding the president’s health care law.
Tea Party Express also commends the congressional Democrats, Reps. Jim Matheson (Utah) and Mike McIntyre (N.C.), who crossed the aisle at great political risk and voted in favor of the Continuing Resolution.
“I’m very encouraged that the House leadership listened to the growing cries from the American people to defund Obamacare. It should be noted that this legislation passed with bipartisan support, something that the so-called Affordable Care Act did not have when it was passed into law,” said Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer. “The fact that this Continuing Resolution had support from both parties is an indication of how bad this law really is and explains why more and more Americans do not want the nightmare that Obamacare has become.”
Kremer added, “The fight now turns to the Senate and I am calling on Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Cornyn to rally Republican Senators to stand with the House to defund Obamacare. The Senate needs to listen to We the People, just as the House listened.”
