McIntyre Statement on Vote to Keep Government Operating and To Delay Health Care Law

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mike McIntyre released the following statement regarding tonight’s vote to keep the government operating while also delaying the health care law for one year:

“Keeping our government open to perform necessary functions and provide essential services is paramount. Delaying the health care law is necessary for individuals, small businesses, and our economy.

“My vote tonight was a positive move both to provide certainty for the operation of our nation’s government and to delay the uncertainty of the implementation of the new health care law.

“It is long-past time for both parties to set aside their differences and reach solutions that our citizens want and need.”
