Today, Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the following statement on House action to send to the Senate a bill to fully fund the government while delaying for one year the flawed healthcare law:
"The House of Representatives is listening to the American people. The public has been clear in their opposition to a healthcare law that is driving up costs and limiting choice for millions of Americans.
Today, the House passed legislation to achieve two key priorities for the American people--fully funding the government and delaying for one year this disastrous healthcare law. The President himself has implemented a one year delay in the law's requirement for big businesses to provide insurance and a one year delay in the law's privacy and anti-fraud provisions. It is only fair we extend this same relief to ordinary Americans."
