Matheson Statement on Saturday Night's CR House Vote

The legislation considered by the House today to prevent a government shutdown included provisions to delay Obamacare for one year and to repeal the Obamacare medical device tax that will drive jobs overseas. I voted for these provisions because I support these policies. However, the most important issue at hand is avoiding a government shutdown, and I am disappointed that the leadership of the House of Representatives chose to add other issues to a funding bill that will not be accepted by the Senate and could very well lead to a government shutdown in less than three days. Our country deserves better from its political leadership than what it is getting today in the House of Representatives.
