Congressman Boehner: Senate Should Follow House Lead to Keep Government Open


Mar 6, 2013

Washington
-

Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) today issued the following statement after the House passed a measure keeping the government open through the end of the fiscal year:

“Today the House has taken the first step towards assuring the American people that the federal government will stay open, which President Obama agrees should be our shared goal.  This legislation is straightforward and reasonable, protecting national defense and helping our veterans while maintaining the president’s sequester, which Republicans continue to support replacing because there are better ways to cut spending.  The Senate should pass the House measure without delay so we can continue focusing on helping Americans get back to work and putting the country on a path to a balanced budget.”
