Senator Roberts Puts Economy First; Votes to Defund Obamacare

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) voted in support of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) Continuing Resolution amendment to delay funding of Obamacare, which he co-sponsored.
Senator Roberts released the following statement after voting in support of Senator Cruz's amendment, which failed 45-52:

"I have long said Obamacare should be repealed in its entirety. This was an overreaching, vague, and irresponsible law resulting in over 20,000 pages of new regulations thus far. It's a trillion dollar tax on the American people. It steals from Medicare. The massive regulations hurt patients and employers alike. This law is destroying jobs when we need them the most, and I'm disappointed my colleagues in the Senate failed to see the wisdom in defunding this new entitlement."
