Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14)
issued the following statement after House Republican leaders announced that they will amend the Senate continuing resolution to delay
Obamacare for one year and permanently repeal Obamacare’s medical device
tax, among other provisions:
“I thank the 61 House Republicans who joined me yesterday in support of our Fairness Amendment to delay Obamacare for one year. Our combined effort proved successful as House Republicans have decided to incorporate the one year delay policy in the government funding bill we expect to vote on today. It is reasonable, and right, to demand that every American gets the same Obamacare delay that the president gave to businesses and insurance companies. I thank leadership for, once again, listening to the conference and moving forward with policies that unite us as we work to keep the government open and protect our constituents from the harmful effects of Obamacare.”
Yesterday, Rep. Graves and 61 House Republicans announced that they would introduce an amendment to the Senate continuing resolution (CR), called The Fairness Amendment, to delay Obamacare until 2015. Rep. Graves does not plan to offer this amendment now that the House CR will include a one year delay provision.
