WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) released the following statement regarding House passage of H.J. Res. 59, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014:
“Today the House sent a message to the American people that we are committed to keeping the government open and defunding Obamacare.
“The harmful effects of Obamacare continue to stifle job growth and burden hardworking Hoosier families due to rigid mandates, rising premiums, and onerous new taxes. I am pleased the House has worked to protect our constituents and prevent further damage to the economy by defunding this trainwreck legislation.
“This resolution funds government operations responsibly and controls spending, to ensure the government continues to provide essential services to our citizens.
“I urge the Senate to join the House and pass this sensible measure to prevent a government shutdown and defund Obamacare, proving that this Congress is listening to the requests of the American people.”
