House Continues to Act on Keeping Government Open


Oct 2, 2013

Washington
- Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) today issued the following statement after the House passed measures to keep critical parts of the government running, including life-saving cancer research, national parks and museums, and District of Columbia schools and services:

“Republicans continue to listen to the American people and take steps to keep critical parts of the government running.   There’s nothing ‘piecemeal’ about making sure Americans have access to all of their national parks, or continuing life-saving cancer research.   Instead of threatening to veto these bills as part of a scorched-earth strategy, the president should back them just as he did our military pay bill.  We will pass additional emergency measures in the coming days as we wait for President Obama and Senate Democrats to drop their refusal to negotiate.  The sooner they do, the sooner we can resolve our differences and address our country’s challenges.”
