Washington – Representative Brad Wenstrup released the following statement on the continuing resolution coming out of the Senate:
Today's legislation doesn’t address our nation's long-term spending problem and doesn’t fix the serious and fundamental problems within Obamacare. Both have negative consequences for Americans today and into the future, and Ohioans are gravely concerned about both. That's why I do not support the legislation.
The House of Representatives has fought and stands firm on the simple principles that everyone should be treated fairly under the law and that laws must be enforced as written. Unfortunately, President Obama, while refusing to come to the table and negotiate, continues to selectively enforce provisions of his own law while giving breaks to big business and Congress at the expense of individual Ohioans.
I will continue to lead on the issues that Americans have always valued: liberty, the rule of law, fairness for all under the law, free markets, patient-centered healthcare that is accessible to everyone, and a strong national defense which supports our service members and veterans.
