“Today is a victory for the American people. A unified House Republican Caucus has sent a strong message: keep the government open and protect the country from the harmful effects of Obamacare.
“The fight now turns to the Senate where we have an equal obligation to do the right thing for the American people. How many more people have to lose their jobs, wages, and health care benefits before Congress acts? How many more states have to announce that premiums are going up before we do something to protect the country? We should not, and will not, allow Senate Democratic leaders to ignore the will of the American people.
“The American people never supported Obamacare – and they still don't. If the American people make their voices heard now and start contacting Senate Democrats, I truly believe that, along with a unified Senate Republicans Caucus, we will convince enough Democrats to finally do the right thing for the country.”
