ICYMI: Rubio: Defund Obamacare Before It’s Too Late

Sep 17, 2013 | Press Releases

Rubio: “Short-term budgets are a terrible way to run a government, but if we can pass one that defunds ObamaCare, we will be doing America’s workers and job creators a huge service that will be worth it. From the imperfect CR process, defunding ObamaCare would produce a clear-cut victory for American workers and families. Settling for anything less would be devastating to them.”

Over the next two weeks, the sad spectacle that is Washington will be on full display as Congress and President Obama debate yet another short-term spending plan, also known as a continuing resolution (CR). 

Early in my Senate term, I realized these short-term CR’s were a miserable way to run the federal government and decided I would not go along with this budgetary charade again. I came to the Senate to solve real problems and eliminate the biggest threats standing in the way of the 21st century being another exceptional American century. The people of Florida who I work for didn’t send me here to keep postponing hard choices and leave our problems unsolved for future generations to deal with.

And that’s exactly what these short-term budgets do. Rather than prioritize government’s proper role in American society or fundamentally end the way Washington borrows and misspends money, CR’s mostly continue the broken Washington status quo.

With all that said, the CR that Congress will soon consider to keep our dysfunctional government open past September 30 is actually a major opportunity to save our people from the job-killing disaster that is ObamaCare. Because a major piece of its implementation begins on October 1, this short-term budget represents our last chance to stop it by defunding it.

Short-term budgets are a terrible way to run a government, but if we can pass one that defunds ObamaCare, we will be doing America’s workers and job creators a huge service that will be worth it.

From the imperfect CR process, defunding ObamaCare would produce a clear-cut victory for American workers and families. Settling for anything less would be devastating to them.
