WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement today regarding the continuing resolution (CR) to keep the government open and delay the implementation of ObamaCare:

“This weekend I worked with my colleagues in the House to come up with a plan that keeps the government open and delays the implementation of ObamaCare. This is a common-sense solution that the Senate should pass.

"With only a few hours left until the CR expires, President Obama has done nothing to avert a government shutdown. Instead, he has threatened to veto this spending bill in order to protect ObamaCare – a law that most Americans have rejected.

“Majority Leader Reid and President Obama have intentionally forced the nation to the edge of a shutdown today. I support the House-passed plan and I encourage my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to listen to their constituents and do the same.”
