Rep. Graves To Vote Against Reid-McConnell Bill

Washington, October 16, 2013 -

U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement ahead of tonight’s vote on the Reid-McConnell bill to fund the government and raise the debt limit without any plans for fairness under Obamacare or to address the nation’s nearly $17 trillion debt:

“Although the bill being advanced today is a disappointment, Republicans have an opportunity to reset the debate over the next few months. As the nation’s attention turns from Washington politics to the Obamacare disaster, Democrats will have no choice but to reconsider our fair and reasonable proposals to delay the law. Even someone as cold as Harry Reid will have a hard time forcing people to buy a bad, unaffordable product from a website that doesn’t work. As we enter the next phase of the debate and approach new deadlines, Republicans have the facts on our side and the right proposals to help families and communities across America grow and prosper.”
