Griffin: House Plan Keeps Government Open and Overturns President’s Special Obamacare Subsidies for Members of Congress and Senators

Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) issued the following statement regarding the House’s latest version of the Continuing Appropriations (CR) Resolution for FY 2014:

“The House will send the Senate a bill that will keep the federal government open and overturn the President’s special Obamacare subsidies for Members of Congress and Senators.  The Obama Administration has decided that Members of Congress and Senators should be given special treatment under Obamacare—treatment that no other American gets. That’s not fair, and the House is acting to fix it.  Will Senate Democrats shutdown the government to protect their special Obamacare treatment?”

The third House version of the CR would fund the government through December 15, delay Obamacare’s individual mandate for one year and prevent Members of Congress and their staff, the President and his staff from receiving subsidies for their health care coverage.
