Billy Long: I remain committed to doing away with the train wreck of Obamacare

(From Seventh District Congressman Billy Long)

U.S. Rep. Billy Long issued the following statement prior to voting for a continuing resolution that delays Obamacare for one year and repeals the medical device tax, and legislation to ensure our military men and women get paid in the event of a government shutdown: 
“The president delayed Obamacare for big business but not for hardworking Americans.  It is not fair for the president to protect big business at the expense of American families.  This bill delays Obamacare for one year, which includes the taxes, mandates, and spending.  This bill also repeals the onerous excise tax on medical devices that is already costing our country much needed jobs.  I remain committed to working with my colleagues to find a solution to ultimately do away with this train wreck of a law.”
            “Our military men and women put their lives on the line to protect our country and freedoms.  We owe it to them and their families to ensure they continue to receive their paychecks in the event of a government shutdown.”
