U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following statement upon the U.S. House passage of the amended H.J.Res. 59, the Continuing Resolution (CR) in the U.S. House of Representatives. The amended CR will delay the implementation of ObamaCare for one year, repeals the job killing medical device tax created by ObamaCare, and funds the federal government with the current spending controls remaining in place through December 15, 2013. Additionally, the U.S. House passed a separate measure (H.R.3210) to ensure that our troops will be paid in the event of a government shutdown. Miller said:
"On Friday, the Democrats in the U.S. Senate chose to amend the Continuing Resolution passed last week in the U.S. House with bipartisan support which fully funded the government while defunding ObamaCare. Today, I was proud to vote in favor of a CR which once again fully funds the federal government, repeals the job killing medical device tax created by ObamaCare, and delays the implementation of ObamaCare for one year. In addition, I was proud to support a separate measure which ensures that our troops will continue to be paid even if the U.S. Senate and the Administration force a government shutdown.
"The U.S. House has once again acted in a bipartisan manner and responded to the calls of the American people to keep the government open and protect them from the ObamaCare train wreck. Now the U.S. Senate must answer that same call and the American people need to let their U.S. senators know where they stand on this vital legislation."
