Statement from Congressman Chris Collins following the passage of the Continuing Appropriations Resolution
The vast majority of my constituents want Washington to get spending under control and prevent the harmful economic impact of Obamacare. Today, I voted for a Continuing Resolution that accomplishes both and ensures that our government stays open at the same time.
House Republicans are committed to defunding, delaying and dismantling Obamacare, which at every turn is proving to be unworkable as it raises premiums on hardworking Americans, limits healthcare choices for families and seniors, and destroys jobs because of its perverse incentives.
The House has done its job and now this legislation goes to the Senate. It is my hope the Senate will act and give the American people an honest and open debate about what a government takeover of healthcare really means for this country. Members of the Senate now must choose whether they will shut down the government in order to protect Obamacare.
