WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve King released the following statement after voting in favor of H. J. Res 59, the Continuing Appropriations Act of 2014, which includes the text of the Full Faith and Credit Act as well as a provision that fully defunds Obamacare. The bill provides necessary appropriations for all government operations with the exception of those funds necessary to implement Obamacare. The House passed this bill by a vote of 230-189.

“The American people understand the hypocrisy and injustice of the individual mandate as well as the disastrous effect the law will have on our healthcare system,” said King. “Currently, 57% of Americans oppose Obamacare. With this vote today, the House took a strong stand against Obamacare by passing a bill that would fund the entire government except for the new entitlements and onerous mandates contained within Obamacare. I offered this very same amendment in February of 2011, and I am glad that it was finally adopted by the House today. The largest chunk of Obamacare is set to take effect on October 1, and so now is the time to make this stand.

The courts failed to correct the massive overstep made by the Obama Administration and the Democrat majority, so now it is up to Congress to prevent further damage. It is time to restore the doctor-patient relationship, create more opportunities for American workers, and remove the burden this law has created. It is now in the hands of Harry Reid and Senate Democrats to do what the American people are asking for – defunding Obamacare. The House has acted on a bill that will prevent a government shutdown and I will not stop this fight until all Americans are free from the bondage of this law.”
