Rep. Hartzler votes to keep government running

Posted October 3, 2013 at 11:49 am

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has issued the following statement regarding her vote to fund the government and protect individual Americans from ObamaCare’s intrusive mandates:

“Tonight I voted once again to avert a government shutdown and delay ObamaCare’s individual mandate for one year. With our latest funding proposal, House Republicans are calling on the Senate to keep the federal government funded while providing fairness to all Americans who are being forced to comply with ObamaCare’s onerous mandates. It is clear that ObamaCare is not ready for implementation – yet the Obama Administration and its allies in the Senate insist on moving forward with provisions that have already been determined to be unworkable. Corporations have been provided relief from ObamaCare in the form of a one-year delay in implementation, and the Obama Administration has given more than 2,000 waivers to special interests. It is only fair for the Senate to join the House in providing the same relief – a one-year delay in implementation – to hardworking families.”

Congresswoman Hartzler serves on the House Agriculture, Armed Services and Budget Committees.
