September 23, 2013

Congressman Doug Collins (GA-09) votes to defund Obamacare, also referred to as the Affordable Healthcare Act.

Collins voted on Friday in favor of H. J. Res. 59, the continuing resolution to keep the government running while defunding the burdensome Affordable Care Act.

Congressman Collins said, “Today the House worked the will of the people who sent us to Washington stop this train wreck.

Obamacare is such a burden on the American people that Friday’s vote should have been unanimous.

Now, the Senate must act. Now, every United States Senator who listens to his or her constituents should stand up to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and pass this CR.”

The CR that passed on Friday will now go to the Senate for consideration.
