WASHINGTON - Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) Saturday released the following statement after the House of Representative passed, with Kinzinger's support, a continuing resolution that funds the federal government at current levels, while delaying for one year the President's healthcare law. The House also passed H.R. 3210, the Pay Our Troops Act, which would ensure American troops continue to receive paychecks despite any further budget battles:
"Through a bipartisan vote, the House has given Senate Democrats another chance to do what a majority of hardworking Americans want: give every American the same one year delay from the burdens of Obamacare that the Obama Administration gave to big businesses. With new delays, glitches and confusion each week, Democrats should welcome this opportunity to prevent this train wreck of a law from taking effect next week.
Additionally, the House overwhelmingly passed legislation that ensures our men and women in uniform get paid - no matter what. It is now up to the Senate to ensure that our warriors and their families do not fear for their livelihood because of gridlock in Washington."
