Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) today joined House and Senate conservatives at a press conference to support the Continuing Resolution that funds the government while defunding President Obama’s signature health care law.
"Constituents from across the district have expressed deep concern about the harmful effects of ObamaCare," Rep. DeSantis said. "When ObamaCare was passed, we were promised lower rates, the ability to keep current coverage, and benefits for the economy; instead prices are rising, Americans are losing their health care coverage they were promised they could keep, and a number of employees are finding their hours reduced."
"I fully support the House’s Continuing Resolution that will keep our government open while stripping funding from ObamaCare," Rep. DeSantis continued. "The President has unilaterally exempted big business and cut a special deal for members of Congress. It is not fair to deny relief for the American people while rewarding those with political connections. It will be up to the U.S. Senate and Majority Leader Harry Reid to decide whether they are interested in protecting American families from the devastating effects of ObamaCare."
Other members in attendance included Sen. Mike Lee (UT), Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), Rep. Tom Graves (GA-14), Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-4), Rep. Mark Meadows (NC-11), Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-5), Rep. Jim Bridenstine (OK-1), Rep. Raul Labrador (ID-1), and Rep. Marlin Stutzman (IN-3).
