Utah's House Republicans Vote to Defund Obamacare and Keep the Government Open

Sep 20, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – After voting to support the Continuing Resolution to fund the government and defund Obamacare, Reps. Rob Bishop (UT-01), Chris Stewart (UT-02) and Jason Chaffetz (UT-03) released the following statement:

“We were pleased to vote in favor of the House of Representatives Continuing Resolution, which does two important things—defunds Obamacare and keeps the government open and operational. Defunding and repealing Obamacare – one of the most destructive and expensive laws ever passed – is the first step in fixing our health care system in ways that enhance personal freedom and reduce the role of government. We hope Senate Republicans will preserve the defunding language, pass the bill, and send it to the President. The fight is and has always been in the Senate. We encourage them to get this done and bring final resolution to this growing problem.”
