Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) joined his House of Representative colleagues last night in voting to pass a Continuing Resolution that funds the government while delaying ObamaCare for one year as well as repealing the destructive medical device tax. The House of Representatives also passed legislation ensuring that active-duty military continue to receive pay in the event that a funding bill is not signed into law prior to October 1. DeSantis issued the following statement:

“The Obama administration has delayed or waived numerous portions of the law for businesses and other interests. Burdens cannot be imposed on society at large and then relieved for segments that are politically-connected without doing great damage to constitutional government.  Accordingly, all Americans must be given the same reprieve from the negative effects of ObamaCare as has been given to powerful interests.  I also gladly voted to make sure that military personnel continue to receive pay in the event that the resolution is not enacted before October 1.”
