Fleischmann Says New House Spending Bill "Keeps Government Open And Fights Obamacare"

Monday, September 30, 2013

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann said Monday night that the House "has passed yet another bill to keep the American government open and functioning."

He said the bill "includes a one-year delay of Obamacare’s individual mandate, something Democrats in both the House and Senate have supported.  Additionally, the bill removes federal healthcare subsidies for members of Congress and their staff.

 

“Once again the House has passed a bipartisan bill that will prevent a government shutdown and includes proposals that Democrats in both chambers have supported.  Hopefully Majority Leader Reid and the Democrats will finally come to the negotiating table.  

"The House has been willing to work toward a solution and we have now provided three different options to the obstructionist Senate.  Each time though, Senate Democrats have simply buried their heads in the sand rather than doing the job they were elected to do.”

In fact, it took me two hours to start this paper because I was so hypnotized by phone, checking my Instagram and seeing what the next ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Lesbian’s Daddy

I’ve always held the belief that things work out for the best. Oh, I’ve been in some tights where I couldn’t see the forest for the trees but, in the up-and-down life I have lived, I’ve found that God doesn’t make mistakes. If I’ll just hold on long enough, no matter how bad the circumstances, something good will happen. It always does. One of the best examples I have seen lately ... (click for more)
