Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement after voting to defund Obamacare, as part of a Continuing Resolution that passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 230-189:
"Obamacare must be shut down. It's destroying jobs across Louisiana and creating a part-time economy. I came to Washington to work for health care reform that would be patient-centered and market-based, and I will continue to fight that battle. Now it's up to Mary Landrieu and her colleagues in the Senate to listen to the American people, or continue to stand with President Obama's failed signature law."
