Madison Project: “Republicans have come too far in the fight against Obamacare to show weakness and retreat from this opportunity.

 

Washington, D.C. – The Madison Project PAC released the following statement today regarding the current Obamacare fight in Congress:

 

“As the glitches in Obamacare continue to be highlighted today, we must remember why it is so important to force the issue of defunding Obamacare now – before this disaster takes root,” said Drew Ryun of Madison Project.  “Last night, President Barack Obama and Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) made it clear that they wish to shut down the government in order to uphold a law that is killing jobs and isn’t ready for prime time.  Conservatives have fought hard over the past few months to push a strategy to fund the government and shut down Obamacare. Now is not the time for the Republicans to weaken and diminish this critical debate to a few shiny objects like repealing the medical device tax or the congressional exemption. While these provisions are harmful and unfair, they do not cut to the heart of Obamacare.”

 

“It is critical that Congress avoid passing a short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) that funds Obamacare,” said Daniel Horowitz of Madison Project.  “Republicans have come too far in the fight against Obamacare to show weakness and retreat from this opportunity. In order to continue with the objective of funding the government and defunding Obamacare, the House should begin passing small Appropriations bills funding the essential functions of government and those departments and agencies not responsible for implementing Obamacare.”

 

The Madison Project supports and raises money for conservative candidates that have demonstrated a commitment to full-spectrum conservatism. The Madison Project website can be found at http://madisonproject.com/
